I will be attending arguably the biggest game in Utah football history today at 4:00.  Win over BYU and we are conference champs, BCS-bound (again), and we avenge the last two years of last minute losses against a hated rival.  Lose to BYU, and we are conference co-champs, end up in a shitty pre-christmas bowl game, and they get bragging rights until next November (again).   I haven't been this excited for a football games since...well...ever, and I have no idea how my boss expects me to get any work done today.  Here's hoping for an incredible day.

GO UTES!!

Texas Tech normally doesn't care about Oklahoma.  We're usually too busy nipping at the heels of Texas and/or A&M.  This week will be different.

Ok, I'm go out on a limb here and guess that Texas Tech will no longer be #2.   icon_eek

12-0.  Awesome.
BCS bound.  Awesomer.
Shutting up every loudmouth BYU fan in my office for a full year.  Priceless.

I was at that game.  slywink

Wow.  What an absolute dismantling of the Red Raiders.

Interesting AP poll out now...  Oklahoma surpassed Texas by a slim 4 points, despite having lost to them.

Bama retains the #1 spot (off week) and has 63 of the 65 first place votes.

Florida is #2, followed by Oklahoma, Texas, then USC, then Penn St.

Texas Tech fell to 7th, and essentially out of the race for the NC.

Alabama
Texas
OU
Florida

BCS Standings

It's probably going to be the winner of 'Bama/Florida vs. Texas or OU.

Don't be shocked to see Oklahoma State beat OU. That puts Texas Tech in the Big 12 Title game vs. Mizzou and puts Texas in the National Championship game. If OU wins I think OU goes even though Texas beat OU (OU would still have to beat Mizzou).

Utah at #6.   icon_cool

Oh, and to Howie Long:  The reason Utah is above Penn State in the BCS is because they are 12-0 and didn't lose to freaking Iowa!!

All these posts and no-one mentions the Apple Cup!?   icon_eek

C'mon, when was the last time 2 of the 3 teams in Divison I without a single victory this year against Division I opponents faced off in a rivalry week contest?  Where the team with zero wins and on the road was favored by as much as a touchdown against the team with a single win this year (that was against a I-AA team)? 

Seriously men, this is what college football about.  And it went into overtime.
