Auburn and Oregon steamrolled their way into the BCS title game. I do like both teams and do think both the Tigers and Ducks have suspect defenses. I think Cam Newton and the Rally Cats might be a bit too much for the Quack Attack. That's what I'm saying now, because you never know what will happen in a championship game. Will it be a coronation for Newton or will the duck be doing more pushups?
In the Big 12 championship game Oklahoma denied Nebraska the chance to skip town with the conference trophy. The Sooners beat the Huskers 23-20. This is a game Nebraska should've won. The Cornhuskers jumped on Oklahoma early jumping to a 17-0 lead but couldn't put them away. The Sooners, mainly linebacker Travis Lewis, came up with some timely turnovers to stymie Nebraska. Oklahoma will be heading to the Fiesta Bowl to take on Big Least, er, Big East champion Connecticut. The Huskies earned their first trip to a BCS game by beating South Florida 16-13.
Virginia Tech will go to the Orange Bowl to play Stanford. The Hokies punched their BCS ticket by outscoring Florida State 44-33.
The wild WAC ended in a three way tie as Hawaii, Nevada, and Boise State all won to claim a share of the crown. Boise might feel a slight snub, but they'll have to deal with it. On the flip side Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore is a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. I feel Colin Kaepernick should be there as well.
