All Because of Oklahoma & USC

#1 USC vs. #2 Oklahoma

2004 Heisman Matt Leinart vs. 2003 Heisman Jason White

Heisman Runner-up Reggie Bush vs. Heisman Runner-up Adrian Peterson

The Over-Under is 53, and USC is favored by a whopping 1 point (couldn't they at least make it 1 1/2 points to at least make it interesting for gamblers?)

The most anticipated championship game in recent memory... the most evenly matched game, maybe ever... aaaand the debut of U2's All Because of You video, which I might be in.

Yes'um... screw the Rose Bowl... this one truely is the Grand-daddy of 'em all.

While there is certainly more at stake in this game, I doubt USC and OKLA will provide us with the show that Texas and Michigan did on Saturday.

Anyway...the game opened at USC by 3, money has come in on Oklahoma...my sense is that Oklahoma is the right play, their D really peaked late, giving up only 6 points in the final 3 contests (I know Baylor was one of those, but still).
As for the O/U...I handicap it as a 49-50 point game, which would suggest the under, though bowl games like Superbowls can sometimes get out of hand...I think this one stays fairly close most of the way though...Hewson's can't miss prediction: Oklahoma 27, USC 23.

well i'm not saying it's gonna be THE best game... but on paper it certainly is.

with that... it'll probably be a blow-out

I was going to ask, for those of us just watching for the halftime video, who to root for

But since Stoops used to be the defensive coordinator at Florida and not too long ago Oklahoma beat FSU in a national championship game in which FSU scored a whopping 2 points , I guess out of loyalty to FSU I'll have to root for USC

It's 35-10.


And USC just recovered an Oklahoma fumble. This is embarassing.
