2010 BCS National Championship is Thursday!
Will you be watching Thursday evening?? I will! I wish I were actually going to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the game, but I’ll just have to settle for HDTV.
This game is going to be kind of crazy. Both University of Texas and University of Alabama are undefeated football teams for the 2009 season. Someone has to lose tomorrow. Someone else will go 14-0.
During this season, Colt McCoy led the Longhorns through a perfect season, with only two games that gave them any real problems (vs. #20 Oklahoma on 10/17: 16-13; and vs. #22 Nebraska on 12/5: 13-12). However, while most people were predicting that McCoy would win the Heisman this year, he fell in the rankings with imperfect play and wasn’t even the runner-up.
Instead, the Heisman trophy went to Alabama player Mark Ingram, one of the Crimson Tide’s running backs. He ran for 1,542 yards and had 15 touchdowns in this season alone, and he is only a sophomore at the University of Alabama. He, like McCoy, helped deliver his team to an undefeated season.
Which of these teams will have a perfect record this year? My guess is Alabama, but don’t hold me to that!
