College Football Week 14 Thoughts: Breathing Easy after Boise State Loss

Alex FergusonSenior Analyst IINovember 28, 2010

What a three days of college football it was for us on Thanksgiving weekend.

First of all, there was the Auburn comeback that stirred hearts. There's nothing quite like Nick Saban getting a kick in the nuts—but it's probably more satisfying when it's Auburn fans who have done it. Their rendition of "Rammer Jammer" was a touch of genius, particularly when you can guarantee it was repeated in somewhere ways away from the stadium and earned the person singing it a well-earned kicking.

Speaking of kicking, that's probably not the word to use around Boise State at the moment, as their kicker, Kyle Brotzman, missed a pair of pressure kicks that had the BCS boys thanking the Good Lord that they won't have a four-way unbeaten tie for the National Championship Game (that would be three, if Auburn and Oregon win out).

LSU's hopes of being national champions went with an inept offensive performance against Arkansas, nicely doubled with a hilarious clash of secondary players that let Arkansas in for the winning touchdown with virtually no time left on the clock. My, how the VFA laughed.

We wished we were in such good humor after events at State College, but unpredictably, Penn State lost to Michigan State 28-22, despite a spirited comeback.

It was nice to see how full the student section was (not), but then again it WAS the Thanksgiving weekend and Penn State wasn't exactly playing glorious ball, were they?
