No, it starts in 21 hours, but if any Freepers are attending, be sure to note that the golf course parking lots will be CLOSED due to the heavy rains this weekend, reducing parking availability big time.

Pasadena PD will stack park four lanes on the streets surround the stadium, so take a bus, shuttle or walk to the stadium if possible. It will take hours to leave the event if stuck in that parking.

Parlay that with the over (+/- 69.5).

Lots of points to be scored.

Be interesting.

I never take the over on bowl games just because the kids are so wired they NEVER play like they do during the season.

I'll take the over on Regie Bush at 150 yards tho...

Anybody know if there is a Keith Jackson Drinking Game?

If not, we have plenty of time to make one! :)

I say one shot for a "Nellie", two shots for a "Hoooooooooooooold everything", and one shot for every minute before 0:00 of the 4th quarter that Jackson calls the game "over".

Good point. I wonder what the history is with the over/under in bowl games in general.

I can remember some big points put up in big bowl games but I'm sure the o/u is always large with those.

BTW, I wouldn't wager against Texas tomorrow. They have seen all the press that USC is getting (i.e., ESPN's ridiculous program comparing USC to historical programs) and will be even more motivated than they would have.

Plus, they are just a damn good football team getting a hellava lot of points (7-8?).

I'll quickly jump on the Longhorn bandwagon.

USC hasn't played anyone outside of a decent Notre Dame team. Notre Dame deserves great credit for their season, but don't have serious speed yet.

How does USC expect to shut down Texas given the yards they have allowed and Texas' proficient running and passing games. Texas can probably slow USC down with its solid, quick defense, while USC may have trouble doing the same. Also, Texas does not turn the ball over a lot. Young has grown up this year.

I love my buckeyes, but I'll be rooting for Texas in this one.

Reggie Bush carries the ball in the wrong arm a lot. I predict at least one perhaps two fumbles in critical sitations as the Longhorns D is fast enough to get to him and are always looking for the strip.

What they are calling the Rose Bowl is tomorrow, not today.

And, it isn't the Rose Bowl. The Rose Bowl is held on January first, unless january first is a sunday, in which case it is held on the second -- same day as the Rose Parade.

There was a Parade on Monday, but no game -- they cancelled the Rose Bowl this year.
