Our Thoughts

Brian – Texas and Southern Cal showed again why they’re at the top of the polls. Two of the most dominating performances I’ve ever seen, especially Texas’. The Longhorn starting offense essentially played two quarters of football and still put up 70 points on what was a pretty respectable Colorado defense. USC showed they do in fact have a defense, shutting down a good UCLA Bruin offense completely. The match up on January 4th in the Rose Bowl is going to be one for the ages.

Only six games featuring top 25 teams last weekend, but when two top 5 teams go down you’re going to see a bit of shuffling going on. LSU and Virginia Tech both drop almost ten spots as they blow their BCS chances and now have to settle for the Peach and Gator Bowls respectively. The people at the Fiesta Bowl sure don’t mind, as they get to select the matchup they wanted anyways (Ohio State and Notre Dame) and only have to worry about a quiet murmur from Nike Town. 13 more days to bowl season!

Matt – Even though there weren’t many games it was still a great football weekend. I was at the Big 12 Championship to watch the Longhorns demolish (understatement) the Colorado Buffaloes. Texas scored 70 points with 7 minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter! USC also took care of business roughing up UCLA pretty bad.

So this makes for the national championship game everyone wanted, the two best teams in the nation going head-to-head in the Rose Bowl. Luckily I got a ticket to the Rose Bowl and will watching the Longhorns roll-up USC. Should be fun. See you in Pasadena!
