There are only two words I can use to explain the Texas-Nebraska game:

Man are you ever right, there could be several unbeaten teams this year. But the big question will be what will the networks do without Tim Tebow to talk about.

What will Gary Danielson do next year.? Talk about every QB he sees, and compares them to Tebow, and never let us forget.

Georgia Tech holds off Clemson and is heading back to the Orange Bowl for the 1st time in 43 years

Man, that is a hell of a lot of pressure to put on a young kid...

"Yeah, go out there and hit this 46 yarder... and if you miss we don't play for the championship... no pressure"

I thought there was no way he'd make that kick.

Indeed...at least it didn't cost the team.

The Horns almost blew it...there are a lot of broken Horned Frog and Bearcat hearts right now. WOW, what a great day of college football.

And this is the last college football game I will watch.  My 4th year of BCS boycott begins.  See you next fall college football.

Why the hell didnt Texas take the timeout....

12/5/09   |   MrNFL   |   175 respect

Norv Turner thinks that was horrible clock management.  They almost Vince Young'ed it there and blew points.

12/5/09   |   Scott   |   49403 respect

Holy crap... did Texas just F*** up?

12/5/09   |   MrNFL   |   175 respect

Great, this one's over.  Now the BCS idiots are popping their champagne.  I hate college football.

12/5/09   |   gobigblue1960   |   4802 respect

I just hope at least three teams end up undefeated. The BCS should get busted.

Nebraska is a 45 yard field goal away from causing some serious BCS chaos

Colt gave it away...just totally handed it to who ever.

nebraska cant get a #### 1st down

12/5/09   |   Scott   |   49403 respect

CJ Spiller is trying to toss his name into the Heisman trophy hat.  Bad foot and all he is singlehandedly keeping Clemson in the game with his 4th touchdown of the night

12/5/09   |   redsox1002003   |   881 respect

looks like the refs were told to have texas win with that phantom P.I. call

I didn't watch the post game  but I saw them when the cam was on Tebow...couldn't help but feel bad for the kid.

This is some of the worse play calling I have see Texas do all year.

You might be right, but that would be terrible. TCU is much better than Cincinnati, imo... mostly because they, you know, actually play defense.

You and I both know that what is right and what happens within the current BCS system are often not the same.

is it just me, or does this big 12 title game remind anyone of the king of the hill episode where they go to the big 12 title game, and accidently helps nebraska win. great episode!

I have never seen nothing like that.

mccoy picked off early. huskers go for it on 4th and 1 and is stuffed.

I never thought I'd ever say this, but go Nebraska!

Nice start.

Nice first drive. Go Tigers!!

12/5/09   |   Pat   |   5134 respect

I want to see Nebraska and Georgia Tech tonight, so we can see this:

BCS Championship: Alabama vs TCU
Orange: Georgia Tech vs Cincinnati
Sugar: Texas vs Florida
Rose: Oregon vs Ohio State
Fiesta: Boise State vs Nebraska

Evidently being a quarter back is out, maybe there is more to this sign then we know.

I personally think if Texas loses, the voters will help push Cincinnati (BCS conference) to 2nd over TCU (non-BCS). Honestly, it's a tough call which I think should play, if Texas loses.
If anyone thinks Florida should get a rematch over TCU or Cincy, please don't say it, because they shouldn't.

BTW, I think Texas wins this game anyways. Just good for discussion.
