    The Colorado Buffaloes finish their fantastic season with a great win in the Rose Bowl against a very good Michigan State Spartan team. This game was much like the previous few games for Colorado, where points were at a premium, and turnovers were magnified because of it. Colorado got on the board first halfway through the first quarter with a 47 yard FG. Michigan State marched right back down the field but had to settle for their own 29 yard FG to tie the game at 3-3 near the end of the first quarter.

    The second quarter started much like the first, with Colorado going down the field and sneaking into field goal range again. K Will Oliver hit his second consectutive 47 yard FG about halfway through the second quarter to retake the lead at 6-3. Michigan State put together a good drive and went back down the field and punched it in from 4 yards out on a HB Nick Hill run to go ahead 10-6 with 0:29 left in the half. That would be the score at halftime.

    Michigan State would score the first points of the second half on a Nick Hill 2 yard TD run (4:02) to extend their lead to 17-6. The Buffaloes put together a good drive but didn't get it done in the red zone and had to settle for another Oliver FG, this time from 22 yards, to cut the lead to one possession at 17-9 (1:12).

    The Spartans turned the ball over in the fourth quarter, one of QB Cook's two interceptions, on a play action pass where he was looking deep. Freshmen FS Kyle Bowie made a great play on the ball and made the interception to set Colorado up with the ball. QB Justin Jackson had thrown one pick himself so far and hadn't really been playing all that well. He had a good drive this time though as he completed some big passes and converted some third downs. Jackson would score himself on a 16 yard read option TD run that fooled the defense to cut the lead to 17-15 with 4:11 left in the game. Jackson then converted the two point conversion to tie the game at 17-17 on a completion to the goal line. Michigan State still had time to go down the field, but the Buffalo defense stepped up and forced a punt to get the ball back for the offense.

    The Colorado offensive line finally gave HB Tony Jones some running room and Colorado was able to move down the field, forcing the Spartans to use their time outs. Oliver came in for the 39 yard FG and drilled it to put the Buffaloes up 20-17 with 0:49 seconds left. Michigan State rallied behind Cook though as he put on a pretty damn masterful drive from his own 19 with no time outs. Completing passes to the sideline, in the middle of the field for first downs, and running some hurry up to keep the Buffalo defense on its heels. The Spartans went all the way down to the 34 yardline to set themselves up for about a 51 yard game tying attempt with around 6 or 7 seconds left when the receiver stepped out of bounds. Colorado took the time out to let the kicker think about it. K Troy Jones came out from the left hash and booted it and I thought it would maybe push left. It didn't and it looked like it would go through the uprights right up until it hit the crossbar and fell to the turf.

    Colorado should finish #2 in the polls, with the earlier loss to USC the only thing that denied them a chance at a National Title. I am very happy with this season anyway as we had to beat 7 users this year to make it to a 13-1 finish with 4 of those games being only 1 TD or less the difference.

    BELK Bowl

    North Carolina 35
    Cincinnati 23

    If this is the last game Marquise Williams wears Carolina Blue, he went out with a bang breaking Carolina QB records. In this game he broke the career record for TD passes and the single season passing yards record. Williams on the day was 19-27 for 361 yards and 5 TD. He also added 44 yards rushing on 11 carries. Romar Morris added 78 yards on 22 carries. TJ Thorp had 4 receptions for 124 yards and 2 TD; The two TD gave him the school career record for touchdowns, which was previously held by his teammate Reggie Wilkins. Wilkins had 4 receptions for 110 yards and Zach Merrick had 5 receptions for 60 yards.

    With the win North Carolina ends with a 10 win season, and carries a 5 game win streak into next season. Next Season North Carolina has only one goal: The #1. If Marquise leaves, it will time for a new gunslinger to take the reigns, but if he chooses to stay the sky's the limit. North Carolina is gunning for the #1 spot in 2015.
