STILLWATER, Okla. (AP)—Our weekly BCS meltdown came from T. Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla., where the No. 5 Oklahoma State Cowboys were bested by an opportunistic squad in the Houston Cougars.
Case Keenum (32 of 46, 366 yards, 3 TD’s, INT) and Bryce Beall (138 all-purpose yards, two touchdowns) made numerous big plays when it mattered most and the Houston defense put the curtains on the game when Jamal Robinson returned a Zac Robinson pass 26 yards for a score.
Whether the Cougars represent Houston or Brigham Young, they specialize in ruining the hopes and dreams of BCS schools in Oklahoma.
Once again, this proves that anyone can beat anybody. In the NFL, we have a fair playoff where teams who perform well during the regular season are rewarded by getting the opportunity to play for a legitimate title.
The BCS may be laughing all the way to the bank, as I’ve stated previously, but no crime will go unpunished.
While the illegal cartel that enshrouds Division 1 college football will be taken care of in due course (I hope swiftly, come on Senators Hatch and Barton!), currently notwithstanding the money this rakes in for so-called power leagues, college football is the laughingstock of sports.
Meanwhile, the NFL is just hours away from its first weekend of the regular season and it will be nice to watch REAL FOOTBALL. GO BRONCOS!!!
