what a shocker. OU losing to TCU. If Texas loses to Ohio State that will be the end of their rose bowl hopes. Notredame has a big game against Michigan this week. Go SEC. Bulldogs and the Gators all looking good. Vols, LSU tigers will be there at the end of the season.

Am rooting for Cal to shock the world.

Longhorn will kick buckey's butt. Vince Young will be the Heisman tropy winner.

Vince "who"? Unless Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush Goes to NFL by next week ....
Winning against cupcake teams and being in a cupcake conference does not get Heisman. Playing a soft shedule (only 1 top fifteen team 2 top 25 team) will severly hurt any chance of getting to the rose bowl also. Just a reminder: Did maack brown beat Stoopes? 0-5.

buckeyes: yep they are down just as they were down against Miami in bowl championship.

No. 2 Texas defeated No. 4 Ohio State 25-22 in columbus, Ohio in front of 100000 ppl.

Vince Young ran for 74 yards and threw for 272 yards and two TDs.
I guess now you know who "Vince Young" is .:)

I am a Nebraska fan. Sad to see the Huskers are out of top 25 for the first time in recent history. Nice to see Texas (a Big 12 team) won against Ohio State.

Huskies used to be a powerhouse in Big 12 North but its been really weakened lately. Probably colorado will be in the Big 12 Championship game.

I know who vince Y is. he is a shadow of Matt Jones who he saw destroying texas at austin 2 years back. by the way, congrates on your win but that would not put you an automatic in the rose bowl. The shedule (conference) is too weak. They would not face any team with over 8 wins. That includes OU. So even if they run the table any other undefeated team from SEC or Florida State/VTech will be ahead of the long horns.

Ohio State is over rated. You will c when they play Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Michigan state.

Vtech has a real shot at it this season. All they have to do is beat Florida State and they should be home free. my Hawkeyes are going nowhere. Had high hopes but the cyclones (Iowa state) burried them eary.

Penn State - 6-0
USC - 5-0
Texas - 5-0
Texas Tech - 5-0
Va.Tech - 6-0
Florida State - 5-0
Georgia - 5-0
Alabama - 5-0
UCLA - 5-0

At least 5 of these teams will go Undefeated, So who plays in the National Title game? the teams that are bolded are the two that i think should play for the BCS title game if they go undefeated. Sorry to the other undefeateds that wont play in the Rose Bowl

Big games this week: USC VS ND, Penn State vs Mich.

Georgia needs to win against Florida at the swamp. Very hard to do. Then win against Georgia tech, then SEC championship against LSU/ Auburn/ Bama. Don't think they can stay undefeated.

I like Fl State's chances. They only face the gators at the swamp and thats it.

Va tech, ya baby, they should handle Miami at home and they are also home free.

Overrated Bama will face LSU/ Tenn/ Auburn and SEC championship game. Can't see them going undefeated.

Penn State will visit Michigan, and has Wisconsin.

Texas plays T Tech and A & M. USC plays UCLA.

You are absolutely correct cricman. 5 teams,
1. USC 2. Texas 3. Penn St. 4. Va tech. 5. Fl State can go undefeated. It would be hard to pick 2 teams. I like playoffs. 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3. the winners play.

Long season though anything can happen.

Week 7:
1. USC 2. Texas 3. Va Tech 4. Georgia 5. Bama

Can't rely on Texas Tech (face Texas) and UCLA's (face USC) undefeated season.

I am hoping Va Tech beat Miami. Doesn't matter Boston college or Fl State in the ACC championship game.

lol, faceoff: I would be really happy for Mack Brown. But how can I love Long Horns and livin Arkansas (the Hog land)? T Tech gave up, just as Ark gave up on USC 70-17. Thats with 3rd string playing on 4th Quarter.

Watch what you wish for. OU found out last season. :) Good luck on your Rose bowl game.

Georgia is out. Bama still breathing (not for long though - SEC is too strong to send an undefeated team). Va tech looks good. Texas got a scare. USC rolled. waiting for UCLA.

I hate Notre Dame. With 2 losses they are ranked 8th? Are the polling people crazy?

No they switched places with USC. From here on the schedule does not help UT. Where as VA Tech has Miami and perhaps Florida State. Winning those two games may put Va Tech incharge. USC plays UCLA so there thrength of schedule is not bad.
USC back on top of BCS, flip-flopping with Texas (http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news;_ylt=Aq3FaZ8ZHo6fZeepA4KUs50cvrYF?slug=ap-t25-bcs&prov=ap&type=lgns)

Well then it is settled. Longhorns and USC at Pasadena (Rose Bowl). Even if they drop one of the remaining two games. I guess cupcake conference will have another representative to be humiliated at the hands of USC.

Still can't believe that Va Tech lost at home to Miami and LSU lost to Tennesse.

Go Hogs 2007.

Hey I was wondering why are there so many bowls... I guess Rosebowl is very similar to superbowl in nfl but what about other bowls.... what do they represent?

Tigers_eye
December 29, 2005, 02:02 PM
Bowls are money making tree (post season) for the NCAA Football. As you can see with so many bowls the winners feel like they have done something in the season. i would prefer a playoff system 4 or 8 teams over this BCS crap.

Rose bowl is not as the super bowl. That's where PAC -10 and Big 10 conference winners use to play each year. BCS bowls rotate the championship match among the four bowls (fiesta, sugar, orange, rose) each year. Last year it was Orange Bowl. This year it just happened to be Rose bowl. Different conferences has contract with these bowls to send there best teams. To participate or to be eligble to play a bowl game a team must have a winning season.

Each BCS bowl participating schools get over 12 - 16 Million USD which then is used to fund the school's athletics department. Lower bowls give out less money. Yes, Money is behind everything!!

Unlike NFL there is no clearcut champion in College football. AP poll, coaches poll now BCS announces the champion. In a time of disagreement two teams are crowned as co-champs.

What an upset. Nabraska beat the mighty 20th ranked Michigan team. In september Michigan was ranked at #3 in the nation. 5 losses might do it for Coach Carr even if he had won a national championship.

Cornhuskers came back from 9 points in the forth. 32 -28 was the final result. 1st upset of the post season.

Thanks cats_eye. Makes more sense now. I am always confused with college football for some reason. The thing I don't understand is why is there a poll. Why can't they play a playoff series and decide who the winner is.

2 more upsets last night. Utes beat the Yellow jackets 38 to 10. Oklahoma Sooners beat the (10-1) Oregon Ducks team 17-14.

In both games, the losers were clearly upset to play those games. ACC team Ga tech wanted to player closer to Atlanta but ended up in San Fran, Oregon wanted a BCS game. Notredame side stepped them. with a 9-2 record Notredame don't deserve to be in BCS.

Cupcake conference (big 12) so far doing well. Colorado lost but Nabraska and Oklahoma beat higher ranked teams (Michigan and Oregon).

Finally last night the Joe Pat (79 years old) - Bobby Bowden (76) game was finished. Penn, the better team won. They should have won easily too many missed field goals put them into that situation.

Rose Bowl starts tonight. Hard to hold back the bashing. But will wait 24 hours.

34 game winning streak is snapped. SC's mistakes came back to haunt them at the end.

Vince Young was brilliant. Long horn defense was wow!! To stop that high powered offense was really something. Also Texas won the field position game. ave start was way better than the USC's.

I supported the losing team - USC. So feeling not so well. Reggie Bush's lateral cost them big time. Momentun shifted there. USC was going to score and then the turnover. However, Texas had their share of misques.

Never thought Maack Brown could win the big one. Eight long years and he did it.

Hoping for the better college football season in 06-07.
Adios, to this thread.

In the strongest conference in NCAA, they beat up on each other. That's why most of the time they don't have undefeated teams and don't get a title shot. Unlike cupcake conference Big 12. Only one in the top 15. We don't have Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, O' khala amma state in our conference, hahaha.
