New Years Day Bowls, SEC West Takes the State of Michigan Out Back of the Wood Shed (Miss St, Alabama Hammer Michigan & Mich St) (Update: TCU Wins Rose Bowl)
BIG TEN NO MATCH FOR THE SEC …
The SEC West powers Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide flexed their muscles and opened up a super-sized can of whoop a$$ on the Big Ten state of Michigan. The SEC teams won by a collective 101 to 21, YIKES. From the opening to ending whistle, The Bulldogs and Tide ripped the Wolverines and Spartans, respectively.
Progressive Gator Bowl: Mississippi State 52 – Michigan 14
Capital One Bowl: Alabama 49 – Michigan St 7
To make matter worse for the BIG 10, Penn St lost to the Florida Gators in the Outback Bowl in Urban Myers final game as coach, 37-24.To further add insult to injury to the Big 10, in the Ticket City Bowl, Texas Tech beat a game Northwestern team, 45-38.
Can the Wisconsin Badgers save the Big 10 from a 0 and 5 New Years day bowl drubbing? Wisconsin takes on the upstart TCU Horn Frogs in the Grand Daddy of em all, the Rose Bowl.
UPDATE I: SHOCKER!!! TCU Beats Wisconsin 21 -19 to win the Rose Bowl … they won one for the little guys!
David slays Goliath again, today we were witness to a college football “Hoosiers” as little Hickory won the Indiana state basket ball championship and now the non BCS qualifier TCU Horn Frogs have won the Rose Bowl. Yes NCAA … non qualifiers do belong in the BCS National Championship game. Do not ever say the small schools do not belong and that they should not play for the BCS championship. The TCU’s and Boise St’s of the world could play with anyone. TCU finishes the season 13-0.
What a day for the BIG TEN … 5 losses!
The only team left for the BIG TEN is Ohio St vs. Arkansas in the Allstate Sugar Bowl for 2011 bowl redemption. Of course The Ohio State Buckeyes should have 5 players suspended for this game, but thanks to NCAA underhanded games, that wont occur until next year. If Ohio St head coach Tressel had any class, he would have held them out of this game on principle.
UPDATE II:Can UCONN pull the biggest upset of the day? Can the University of Connecticut beat the powerhouse Oklahoma Sooners. UCONN … win one for Jasper Howard!
