The Victory Formation:
As expected last nights Sugar Bowl was a rout. However, what wasn’t expected was Louisville being the ones to put the beat down on Florida. Louisville dominated the game from the start and made the Gators look really bad. Tonight’s Fiesta Bowl between Oregon and Kansas State is the most anticipated of the BCS bowls outside of the national championship game. Both these teams were in contention all year for a national title game appearance. After Florida’s embarrassing performance last night, this game pits the two best teams in the country besides Alabama and Notre Dame. Fiesta Bowl #4 Oregon (11-1) vs. #5 Kansas State (11-1), in Tempe, Arizona Both of these teams are mostly known for their amazing offenses. The Ducks quick fire offense led by freshman QB Marcus Mariota (30 TDs, 6 INTs), and RB Kenjon Barner (1,624 yards rushing, 21 TDs), and dual threat RB De’Anthony Thomas (686 yards rushing, 11 TDs) averaged an astounding 50.8 points per game.

Is she really that hot ?

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The matchup seemed preordained. On the morning of Nov. 17, the penultimate weekend of the regular season, Oregon and Kansas State were the top two teams in the two most authoritative polls, undefeated and seldom challenged. Their resumes were flush with quality victories, their rosters loaded with skill and smarts.
There was reason for the consensus. Oregon had...
GLENDALE, Ariz. It makes sense that a game that used a zoo tiger to predict the winner would have something as wacky as a one-point safety.
A one-point what?
A one-point safety can occur during extra-point tries in college games because the ball is still live. Should the defensive team recover or intercept the ball, and then retreat backwards into their end zone and be tackled...
