Last BIG regular Season Football Weekend

The Bowl season is finally upon us as this was the last GREAT weekend of regular season college football with Bowl game assisgnments, a National Championship and literally millions of dollars on the line.

There were two games that would ultimately decide who gets to play for the National Championship Crystal Football.

The first one was the Southeast Conference Championship Game between the 12-0 defending National Champion Florida Gators and the also 12-0 Alabama Crimson Tide.

Bama Came to Play!!!

Alabama earned the right to play for it all by hammering Florida 32-13.

Texas ekes out a title game bid

Although heavily favored, the Longhorns really struggled and had to kick the winning field goal as time expired to beat Nebraska 13-12. GREAT DEFENSIVE GAME!!!

13-0 Texas vs. 13-0 Alabama

at Pasadena's Rose Bowl

I think this is going to be a really, really great game!

Arizona 21 - Southern California 17

Jason Johnson was SO fired up over this one for a couple of reasons. First, any win over USC is a reason to feel good and. . .

The Holiday Bowl in San Diego was the Wildcats' reward for a second place finish in the PAC-10. The Wildcats are 8-4 and play 9-4 Nebraska in San Diego.

This is a rematch of the 1998 Holiday Bowl when Arizona beat the Cornhuskers 23-20 with a young Jason Johnson on the sidelines finishing his redshirt Freshman season for the Wildcats.

Washington 42 - #19 California 10

A stunning, POSITIVE end to the Huskies 2009 season. Our final record of 5-7 may not sound so hot but remember, the new coaching staff took over a program that was 0-12 in 2008.

A great start with better days ahead I believe.

The Cal Bears, now 8-4, head to San Diego to play 9-3 Utah in the Poinsettia Bowl.

Inaugural Kanza Bowl

Larry Atkinson's alma mater, Nebraska-Omaha, played West Texas A&M yesterday in this new Bowl game based in Topeka, Kansas. Unfortunately, Larry's Mavericks dropped to 7-5 after a tough 31-25 loss to the also 7-5 Buffs.


University of Miami Hurricanes

No game this week for Hässleholm's favorite 11 but their 9-3 record earned the 9-3 Hurricanes a spot in the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, Florida against the 9-3 Wisconsin Badgers.

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints

The Saints did something today that great teams tend to do, win a game when you are not playing very well. New Orleans ran their record to 12-0 by beating the Washington Redkins 33-30 in overtime.

Ugly but still a win!
