    Poinsettia Bowl: San Diego State vs. BYU

    Football is football, and this is the game we get tonight...

    No. There is Alabama football and then there is other football, but this will have to do.

    Aztecs should wear Mayans on their jerseys just for one night.

    Re: Poinsettia Bowl: San Diego State vs. BYU

    I am flat embarrassed that I picked BYU over SDSU in this one. I was smelling upset in this game until the teams took the field. It's still close, but you can just tell that SDSU is better across the boards. They are more athletic, they've got all the momentum as of right now, and BYU's offense is just down right anemic. Here's hoping I show better judgement on my other upset picks.

    Same here. Which is why I gave it only 5 Confidence Points.

    BYU just dodged a fatal bullet.

    I gave it 1 point, so it really means nothing to me either way.

    Any of you see the halftime commentary about Saban? "If you could choose between having Nick Saban or the Nation's #1 recruit which would you want?" And Jesse Palmer said, without hesitation... "Nick Saban! That way you get both!"

    His arm was technically moving forward. YMMV.....

    Edit: Ruled a fumble after all - TD Cougars.

    This is an interesting change of events. It looked for all the world like SDSU was going to run away with this one.

    Bama would beat BYU by 6 or 7 TDs. That BYU-ND game was at ND.
