Even if their offense didn't, Arizona State's defense certainly got that post-Thanksgiving Friday feeling.
Their 'D' was impressive, tying the NCAA record with FOUR TOUCHDOWNS as the Sun Devils beat UCLA 34-9.
Both offenses were absolutely horrendous, picking up 428 yards between them.
I thought Arizona State's offense was meant to be high-octane....how does just 100 yards of total offense justify that tag?
In the end, it was the 'D', with one fumble and three interceptions going back to the house...even if it was a half-empty one.
By the look of one ESPN shot, most people were shopping instead of watching their home team. The game against Arizona shouldn't be too shabby next week—although on this performance, my money's on the Wildcats.
Speaking of disappointing, the LSU Tigers ended a rough regular season with a second surprising loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks, 31-30. Hysterically-named Razorbacks QB, Nathan Dick, was the hero, throwing the winning TD with 22 seconds left to win the game. Doesn't Les Miles normally win tight games like this? Anyway, the SEC West is smiling....even if Tiger fans aren't.
Well, it seems like the magic dust has left and finally, the Pittsburgh Panthers once again burnt the couches against West Virginia, beating their hated rivals 19-15 in the Backyard Brawl.
The happiest people watching the game were probably fans of the Cincinnati Bearcats, who are going to the BCS after the victory as Big East Champions.
