Does anyone else find those birdseye camera shots from above and behind the players distracting? (The camera hanging from the wires over the field.) I think they really, really detract from the game. Go Raiders!

I kinda like them actually.

Just so long as they use them for replays instead of live action. I don't think it's quite good enough yet for the live stuff....

well Wisconsin plays decent defense when it wants too...

but it's amazing that Wisconsin is able to move the ball so successfully against Auburn's defense

And the Big 10 currently has nothing in the W column. It's probably going to be up to THE Ohio State University. Unless Iowa can work a miracle against Florida.

That's right, Penn State should come up with the win. But so far not an impressive showing for the Big 10 (although Wisconsin is winning right now).

yeah...

they had some really tough matchups this year.

Michigan would have been better against UCLA than Northwestern and Northwestern would have been better against Nebraska...

Iowa has been torched on the ground all year long.....

that sucks man....I'm sorry

The Outback Bowl was starting to get interesting. Iowa had cut the lead to 10 and had stopped Florida and was going to get the ball back, but Urban Meyer did a punt fake and got the 1st.

now it's boring again...

Nice choke job by Texas Tech, allowing Alabama to drive from their 15 with little time left on the clock.

Alabama beats TT with a last second FG, 13-10.

Barely made it over the crossbar.

WOW! What an ending to the Cotton Bowl! FG as time expires, what a great game. The Cotton Bowl has been my favorite Bowl game for years...always seems to be a great game.

Iowa recovers the perfect onside kick!

Except bullcrap phantom offsides call by the referee nullifies it. Replays clearly show NO offsides, another bowl game ruined by a pompous idiot referee.

yep......Eagles have NOT been playing as a team....yet

They've got to stop playing 'personal'....and play....as a team....

Forget the 'stats'.....play ball......

should end up a 'close'.....game.....
