About to kick off, seems like forever since the last Texas game. Hopefully we can put them away early, cause I dont want them hanging around late.


FIGHT TEXAS FIGHT

Watching it right now. OSU is looking good but I'm going for Texas. I think the 2nd half will look better for them

What is the point of this game being played in Arizona if they're in a stadium with the roof closed?

Excuse me, but hasn't a major part of getting to go to the big bowls in Arizona, California, and Florida always been being out in the great weather? If I went to Arizona for a game and had to sit indoors I'd be PISSED!

Another aspect of sports ruined.

I'm somewhat indifferent about this game but I hope it turns out to be as good of a game as when they met in 2005.

Texas looks pathetic right now. We cant stop the run and our offense isn't half of what it usually is.

Also, maybe it's just me but the guys calling this game on Fox suck big time.

that last play of the half, I would have done things differently. 03 seconds left, on your own half yardline. there is a chance of a safety. why not fake the qb sneak, have your fastest player squirt out of the backfield and pryor drop back and try to hit him. the defense would be caught totally off guard, and there is really no risk. remember the dan marino fake spike to stop clock and touchdown pass? didn't texas once do something like that vs. nebraska a while back? I think it was a 4th down play and the texas QB was something brown. brown was his last name.

They're looking like they have a hangover, which is what kinda sucks about the bcs games, you don't get to see the teams play when they're rolling.

Good game so far; if it continues OSU might have a shot and pull off another upset against a superior team like they did against Miami a few years back. I still give TX the edge, if they get their **** together they're easily capable of putting up 14-21 pts in matter of minutes and putting OSU away.

It looks like Texas finally decided to show up. This may get ugly, OSU's offense is putrid.

Why is Texas having tackling problems?
