Oregon came into this game with only 2 RB's left. Senior RB Alston was supposed to do clean up work for the emerging star RB J.Shinaba, but when Shinaba went down in the 1st Qtr, it was Alston's turn to prove the he is a #1 RB.

Coach Post Game:
"It was a good win for us. I hate losing Shinaba to injury, but I guess it is bittersweet that Alston got to get the bulk of the carries and have such a great last game. He isn't the most talented RB in the country, but the guy has a lot of heart, and that showed tonight. Game ball goes to him."
Florida St v Penn State
The Nittany Lions defeat the Florida State Seminoles for the 2nd time in 5 years in the Orange Bowl, this time without the 4 rounds of overtime. The PSU defense was able to do enough to control the Robo FSU offense and the Lions offense controlled the ball throughout. Penn State, ranked #4 going into this game, is looking forward to the 2011 season. Big 10 and National Championship hopes are what the Lions will be chasing next year. Back-to-back BCS Bowl wins and 1-loss seasons are some more highlights Penn State, oh and the back-to-back undefeated seasons at Happy Valley, a 13-0 record over the past 2 years, which can only be summed up in a short statemant...
Thank You Fans!
Final Score: Penn State 44 Florida State 22
Wisconsin vs Ole Miss
The Badgers win handily over Mississippi in their bowl game by a score of 31-10. It was an at times dominating performance, with big plays made on both sides of the ball. After a shaky start, Scott Tolzien finished 13 of 19 for 234 yards and a couple of nice TD passes. The defense limited their opposition to just 258 yards of total offense, and David Gilreath returned a missed FG for a touchdown.
Wisconsin finishes the year with a 10-3 record, New Year's Day bowl win, and a top 15 ranking. Momentum gained from two strong victories in their final two games very well may carry over into next season.
Player of the game: Scott Tolzien, 13 of 19 for 234 yards and 2 TD passes.
Cal 21 Oklahoma 17
Cal jumps out to a 14-0 lead after Oklahoma goes for it on 4th down, 1 or less, 3 times only converting 1. Kevin Riley threw well with no interceptions and Shane Vereen led the rushing attack for the Cal Golden Bears. Oklahoma went psycho in 2nd half scoring 17 straight points led by DeMarco Murray's 91 yard TD run. He finished with just under 200 yards rushing. Cal scores the winning TD with 50 seconds left on a Shane Vereen rushing TD.
2 of OKlahoma failures on 4th down cost them legit fg chances. 1 of them Jones hit the wide open TE in the shoulder for most likely a TD. If you have a back like DeMarco Murray why not run him on 4th down. That 91 yard TD run by Murray was sick.
It was nice to see the team get the win without Jahvid Best. It showed that we are more than him on offense. The running game worked well in first half. Set up the play action for a TD to Ross I believe.
Minnesota beats #25 Maryland to improve to 9-4 on the year. I couldn't look at the stats from the game when I got back to the dynasty, weird. Pittman had already broke the school record for rushing touchdowns in a season but pushed it to 22 to end a magical year. He also broke the school record for rushing yards in a season, finishing with 1,546 on the year.
Iowa overcomes injuries to stifle yet another SEC opponent in a January bowl game. This time it just happened to be in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl. The opening drive saw the Hawkeyes lose Doak Walker award winner Jewel Hampton for the game, possibly ending his Hawkeye career on an odd note. There is much specualtion whether or not Hampton will return for his senior season. With a large portion of the offensive line graduating, his record setting year, and the fact that the NFL money just looks great, Hampton has his reasons for leaving. But he also has a couple for returning. A National Championship, which he feels partially responsible for the Hawkeyes missing out on due to his injury in the Michigan game, and the possibility of competing for the Heisman Trophy. Like I said, speculation.
Also injured during the game were WR Derrell Johnson-Koulianos and FS Brett Greenwood. Both would return in the 4th quarter to help their team to victory. After Hampton's injury, redshirt freshman Brandon Wegher would step up in what was his biggest game of his career to date. Wegher would gain over 100 yards against a tough Tennessee defense, and collect 2 rushing TD's on the day. He platooned with fellow RB Jeff Brinson to control the game on the ground. Brinson would not score in the game, but Tennessee never wanted to see him again as he bludgeoned the defensive line and linebackers with his punishing runs. Stanzi had an ok game to finish his career, but did find FR WR Keenan Davis for a big TD pass late in the 3rd quarter to give Iowa the lead for good. Davis came on big late in the season, as he looks to be the #1 WR going into next year. As for the defense, they were solid, with Tyler Sash coming up with 2 more interceptions, and Amari Spievey adding one to his total. The lone bad spot was giving up a 60 yd TD run to Tennessee RB Tauren Poole. Otherwise the defense held Tennessee to under 200 yards of total offense in the game.
A great year capped off with a win in the Rose Bowl has fans happy, and hopefully some recruits finally looking our way. We shall see what the off season brings.
