Oregon State by 10+. Texas commits a lot of TO's tonight and Oregon State capitalizes.

Lotta distractions with that sexual assault, and maybe some UT fans not too excited about a non-BCS bowl in San Antone lead me to believe that OSU capitalizes on their first bowl game in 3 years.

Right now it is 27-24 Oregon State with 5:30 left in the game. 3rd and 11 for Oregon State.

Vaz gets sacked for about the 10th time tonight. I cannot believe he is in the game with a bum ankle that he re-injured early in the 1st half. Texas has the ball at midfield and will probably win now.

What is OSU doing leaving that QB in there? They should have made the switch at half time. I have no idea who I chose in the pick'ems, but State should be running away with this and isn't because of that QB and his injury.

That's game. Texas wins. No way Oregon State can march down the field with their one leg QB.

Oregon State didn't deserve to win tonight with their awesome OL and 1 leg QB. Not sure about all the Riley hype I heard over the years...

I can't believe how lucky the Longhorns are.
Beavers QB cost them that game.
WTF was up with the coaching staff giving it to him like that over and over again.

It was like watching LSU in last year's NC game. Couldn't figure out what Miles was doing then, couldn't figure out what Riley was thinking tonight.

Was this game boring or was it just me. The word I would use to describe this game is "mediocre," in every respect.

Attendance at bowl games (so far) is down 7% from last year and 10% from 2010. Can't imagine why.

But the bowls don't really care if the stadium is empty. They make their money on TV contracts. ESPN will air anything, no matter how bad, just to fill the hours.
