Dec. 26- Motor City and Insight Bowl

Boston College

VS.

Toledo

What will happen: Toledo might be more of a handful than Boston College thinks. This is a strong, well-coached team with the talent to play with most of the bowl teams. Boston College is just a little better. It's better on the offensive line, and more athletic on defense. Don't be totally surprised if a well-motivated Rocket team pulls off the stunner, but Boston College has been too strong this season against the mid-range teams.
CFN Prediction: Boston College 31 ... Toledo 17

Oregon State

Vs.

Pittsburgh

What will happen: All the talk will be about the great offensive players, but the defenses will dominate. Hayes vs. Jackson, Weathersby vs. Fitzgerald and Newson vs. Pittsburgh CB Torrie Cox will be outstanding individual matchups to watch. In the end, the Pittsburgh defense will be just a wee bit stronger with its back seven being the difference. Rutherford will have a slightly better game than Anderson, but Oregon State will win if Anderson ends up going off. Expect a low scoring, and very good, game that could go either way.
CFN Prediction: Pittsburgh 20 ... Oregon State 17

My money's on BC and Pitt ... no really ... I've got money on them. I've shown the Big East a lot of respect this year ... they better not let me down.

I decided not to put any cash on these. Those small-conference vs. middle-tier majors are too unpredicatable.

Pittsburgh's receiver is too good for Oregon State's defense, but I'm not willing to put my paycheck on it

BC has had 6 possessions.. and so far has 6 touchdowns

42-10, still a couple minutes left in the first half

and mac fans wonder why marshall is the only team that gets any respect at all in that conference

And they were robbed from the clear interception. Must be Big 10 officials.

I'm not a huge fan of teams running up the score, but considering some of the cheap shots Toledo took, I'd love to have seen BC air it out all game long.

Big East: 1 down, 4 to go.

Go Pitt!
Go WVU!
Go VTech!
Go Miami!

Holy God ... that's two of the most incredible touchdowns you'll ever see in the first 5 minutes.

I saw the Pitt touchdown which was freaking awsome! I was on my way home from the bar and I missed the Oregon touchdown it says in the box score that it was a 65 yarder.

Don't worry ... it'll be on SportsCenter ... and probably 10 more times during this game.

Well, he did drop what would have been the game winning TD with about a minute left against WVU.

The difference between "can" and "will."

And with today's games, I'm now 6-1 in my point-spread office pool ... who knew Chang would get hurt and screw up my Hawaii pick.

Oh, forgot to mention ... hope no one here attended Toledo, because your team embarrassed themselves and is at the top of my list of No Good Thugs: The NCAA Edition. What a bunch of punkass no-class sore losers.

things were getting a little chippy at the end of the half. that's when the coach is supposed to tell his players to watch themselves and calm them down. then in the second half, one of their idiot linebackers issued a blatant late hit on St. Pierre after he was well out of bounds.

goons.

tom o'brien is one of the classiest coaches in college football and hates to run up the score against opponents. i wish he hadn't called off the dogs in the second half.

toledo's coach wants to know why BC's players weren't kicked out, too. well, maybe the fact that they weren't throwing punches or playing like goons had something to do with it.

Toledo was one of the uglier displays I have seen from a team in a while. UCLA the other night wasn't too far behind, though.

What a ****wad. That one guy threw 3 punches before the officials got to the pile and saw him throw the one that ultimately got him tossed. Perhaps it also has something to do with the fact that no one on BC issued an intentional head-butt to the back of a player's head who had lost his helmet. That head-butt's the kind of thing where the University should be fined or something ... that's "assault" territory.

Toledo is definately a dirty team. I've seen that on numerous occasions against Marshall. And they're pretty much a bunch of whiners, too. When they lose, it's because of the officials, injuries, whatever. Always something other than they got outplayed. They definately didn't do the MAC proud.

Those 2 wins bring the Big East to 10-2 in bowls over the past 3 years, with 3 left this year in which they should be favored.

So much for the Big East being a "weak" conference.

If that's the case, why did you pick Toledo to win in the "Bragging Rights BCS" thread?
