TC: College Football GOW

First, VOTE FOR KEVIN BITTENBENDER for Samsung's favorite fan video. This guy is a true hero and deserves this more than anyone. 

When you get deep into November the college season definitely heats up. Great rivalries are played with more than a win or loss on the line. They mean conference titles, bowl games, and for a lucky 2, a shot at the Title. This year is no different and the BCS is as crazy as it has ever been. There are three non-BCS schools still undefeated bringing the total of unbeatens to 5. That total could easily be reduced to 2 today as three of the unbeaten teams face off against tough conference rivals.

Boise State has dominated the WAC conference over the last decade but today they head to Reno Nevada. The last time these two played, it ended in a 69-67 BSU victory. If they can pull off a win they will not only be outright conference champs but they will be one win away (and one Utah loss) from a BCS bowl game.

10 of the last 11 games between Utah and BYU have been won by a touchdown or less. But today there is more than the Mountain West title at stake between these two in state rivals. Utah holds their fate as well as that of Boise state in their hands when it comes to a BCS bowl bid. A win today gives Utah 2 wins against ranked teams plus a win at the Big House making them the front runner for non-BCS schools in a BCS game. Now I don't even want to get into how awful the BCS is but I don't see Utah winning. BYU won two years ago at Utah on a last second touchdown and a win tonight will give Boise a leg up on Ball State in the undefeated category. Plus the WAC needs that BCS money. As a Utah State alum, I am glad these Utah schools are doing so well but I have to say, GO COUGARS

The biggest game today and one of the biggest of the year is that between Texas Tech and Oklahoma. Texas Tech has proved to the world that they know how to win in big games with wins in the last three weeks over #23 Kansas, #1 Texas, and #9 Oklahoma State. Can they do it again tonight?

"I'm thinking about OU, that's what I'm thinking about," Crabtree said, dismissing the bigger BCS picture. "We take it one game at a time. It's been working so far and I think I'm going to stay with that scheme."
I will make no predictions about this game that I cannot wait to watch. I would love to see Tech win for plenty of reasons but, OU is good...really good.
