Impressive comeback by TCU. Thought Stanford was totally dominating them, then a couple huge back to back plays and the Frogs were right back in it.

Re: 2017-2018 Remaining College Football Bowls Thread

Same player for Texas A&M blocked consecutive punts ... one recovered for a TD, the other more of a tip that resulted in a 20 yard punt

Re: 2017-2018 Remaining College Football Bowls Thread

In UK/Northwestern the UK RB gets tackled, the referee comes over and sticks his hands out like he’s going to help the RB up, the RB grabs the refs hands away while he’s getting up, the ref throws a flag for contact with official which is an automatic ejection

Re: 2017-2018 Remaining College Football Bowls Thread

The UK QB gets hurt when the Northwestern defender tackles the QB out of bounds, no flag

Then Northwestern defender leads with his helmet into the chest of the UK WR and gets ejected for targeting

This crew is one of the worst I’ve ever seen

Sam Darnold probably should have sat this one out like the other top guys.

RIP Sam Darnold, USC and the PAC 12 in bowl games.

He's trying to regain the lead he had in turnovers.

Longest play of the game for USC is recovering a fumbled punt.

Darnold with his 2nd fumble, 3rd turnover, and it’s a killer.

Darnold getting a good look at what it's like to play behind an overmatched offensive line. Perfect training for his future job. Isn't this what college is all about?

Sam Darnold hasn't lived up to the hype

#1 pick? I don't see it

It was very weird to me last night to watch the traditional Rose Bowl matchup being played in the Cotton Bowl.

Re: 2017-2018 Remaining College Football Bowls Thread

Finally won a bowl bet...ISU +3.5 pays. Louisville can blow me. Was 0-3 before that.

Wish today was the semifinals instead of NYD. Would be so much better than NYD when a 4 hour Sugar Bowl won't kick off until 9p Monday.

Re: 2017-2018 Remaining College Football Bowls Thread

LMAO, the UW DB could have been called for a late hit or targeting on McSorley’s slide, neither are called, and McSorley clearly had his bell rung, he was slow to get up and shaking his head, and no one checks him for a concussion,

Re: 2017-2018 Remaining College Football Bowls Thread

That was odd ... there could could have called either targeting or roughing and both looked valid.

In any case .. always nice to see the PAC-12 flop ... and they have big time this bowl season with the exception of Utah

He is ... but rotating a bit in the backfield and so far, not returning kicks

Thanks, Bear.

He's an idiot for playing. My two cents.
