    UCLA 48
    Michigan 0

    Well well, I'm surprised I beat them this bad. Michigan just couldn't get anything going as UCLA's defense played out of their mind. UCLA struggled mid season and looks like they finally pulled together to pull out a HUGE win in a big bowl game. Brehaut played a great game as his senior year is over after the big win. What a way to close out your year as a Bruin! Now the Bruins prepare for the off-season.

    #23 Washington State
    vs
    Virginia 28

    Sun Bowl

    Washington State just didn't have enough in this one as Virginia proved to be too much for Wazzu. Virginia amassed 418 yards compared to Washington State's 315, but both played a clean game as 0 turnovers were committed. Marcus Harrison went a solid 14-22 for 250 yards and a TD, but just couldn't string enough drives against the Cavs. Senior running back had 73 yards on 21 attempts, going out wiht a TD in his final game. Junior Marquess Wilson had 126 yards on 3 catches, dominating the Cavalier defense when he was left one on one. True freshman Marcus Dotson had 4 catches for 49 yards as well.

    The storyline after this game regardless of the outcome, is what will Marquess Wilson do: go pro or stay for his senior year? The 6'3 junior already owns a chunk of the WSU record book, and will likely be one of (if not the top) receivers in the country. Through his first 3 years, Wilson has 3,308 yards and 34 touchdowns- outrageous numbers. He would likely be a Heisman contender if he comes back, regardless of how Wazzu does.

    QB Marcus Harrison could look to go pro, as Senior Jeff Tuel will have a fifth year of eligibility after a pre season injury (apparently Natural redshirted his best QB -- go figure)- So Harrison might take advantage of a solid season. Junior linebackers Darren Markle and CJ Mizell are expected to inquire about their draft projections. Mizell recorded 66 tackles this season ( 17 TFL, 4 sacks, a FF, and 7 PDs). Markle amassed 71 tackles (10 TFL), 2 sacks, 1 INT. Junior SS Deone Bucannon will have a difficult decision to make as well, as he led the country with 10 interceptions this season.

    The Washington State season could be made or lost before it even begins depending on what these juniors decide to do. Hopefully the classmates get together- as they are all true juniors and came to Washington State at the same time.

    Marquess Wilson will go pro. He is a 1st team all american and I think he won best WR if I'm not mistaken. If he goes pro I dont think you are even allowed to sway him.

    No he didn't even finish in the top 3 of Biletnikoff - last I checked anyways, and I know he didn't win it.

    EDIT: Per the rules (just checked) I will definitely be talking to him trying to get him back.

    Yeah, Wilson put up crazy numbers so I don't think I'll be able to get him back. like 1300 yards and 16 Tds... I'd be surprised if he comes back

    CALIFORNIA: 49
    COLORADO STATE: 14
    FINAL

    The Armed Forces Bowl pitted a rematch from earlier in the regular season contest of Cal's 31-14 victory over the Rams. Isi Sofele surprisingly found a way to get healthy in time for the bowl game and earned the start.

    Cal dominated the entire game. Sofele had over 30 carries, 222 yards, and 4 touchdowns in his final collegiate performance. Backup SR RB Covaughn DeBoskie rushed for over 100 yards as well and broke 900 ruhsing yards total for the season. Sofele tallied 1699 yards, 6.2 ypc, and 22 touchdowns for the regular season.

    Cal finishes 8-5 for the second straight season. Coach IrishBearcat is 2-0 in bowl games and looks poised to have his team finish in the top 25 for the second consecutive year.

    It's not going to work. It will keep freezing there, that's the same thing that happened to Kasper and Oshi when they tried to play the rose bowl
