College Bowl Season
As a UCLA alum, of course I'm rooting for my team in the little known Silicon Valley Bowl against Fresno State. I just hope it doesn't turn into a dismal night as the Bruins have shown little offensive punch and the defense can get worn down being out on the field so long.
Tonight, is the Holiday Bowl with WSU vs. Texas. It would sure be great if the Pac10 can smoke them Longhorns.
Other big games of interest to me are the Fiesta with KSU taking on OSU. I'll be rooting for KSU to poke the Big10 in the eye with a win there.
In the Sugar Bowl, I have to go with the underdog LSU to maul the Oklahoma Sooners. That team was thinking itself the team of the ages and well they deserved to get beat up against KSU and they deserve another one for their sin of pride and arrogance.
And finally, the tough one is the Rose Bowl. As a UCLA alum it is hard to root for USC. However, as an observer of sports and a reasonable objective one, USC should be able to defeat UM. However, if UM is able to control the clock with a running game it will get very exciting. Also, if the UM defense is able to knockdown the USC QB and make him run for his life then they will have a good shot at winning. The problem all year was that USC QB could stand tall behind the O-line and had all the time in the world to look for his big and fast receivers so they just blew everybody out. If the game goes that way UM will just be another speed bump in the USC bandwagon.
