We can just about wrap up Championship weekend…

Big 12 Championship game just ended with 6 Kansas State winning 42 – 24 over 18 Texas.  This game was close in the first half  but Kansas State and Collin Klein came out in the second half and got it done.  They will head to the Fiesta Bowl.  Case McCoy, younger brother of Colt McCoy, had a difficult night at QB for Texas with two interceptions.  Collin Klein made his last push for the Heisman with three touchdowns, two passing and one on the ground.  Great job by Coach Bill Snyder!

Big Ten Game: Still in the 4th quarter but I don’t think there is any doubt about the outcome!  Wisconsin is up 70 – 24 over 12 Nebraska and for the second year in a row, Wisconsin will head to the Rose Bowl (to face Stanford, winner of the Pac 12).

In the ACC Championship Game: (This is the game I will admit I watched from start to finish, being a GT fan!), the Jackets fell to 13 FSU 21 – 15.  A really nice effort by the Jackets.  Things did not look so good in the first half, as GT could only manage to score field goals while FSU scored TD’s.  In the second half, GT shut down FSU and made one heck of a game of it.  They actually had the ball with just under two minutes left, and could of maybe should of gone down the field for a winning score.  Such was not to be.  Tevin Washington had a nice game, but the lack of consistent passing is what has buried GT this year.  Bright future ahead with Vad Lee at QB as he has gained some invaluable experience playing a lot  this year.  FSU had three turnovers, nice effort again by the GT defense in the second half under interim defensive co-coordinator Charles Kelly.  The last drive for GT ended with a interception, their second turnover of the game and FSU is headed to Miami to play in the Orange Bowl, likely against Louisville representing the Big East.  Congrats to the Noles, ACC Champions!  Also congrats to the Jackets for making this a close game, something most did not expect!

As previously reported, the SEC Championship was a jewel.  2 Alabama held off 3 UGA, 32 – 28.  Great effort by the dawgs, but Bama will advance to face 1 Notre Dame for the National Title.

Tomorrow we will find out the final verdict on the BCS and the bowl match ups.

Sad to think College Football is winding down, even though we of course will be watching through the first week in January of 2013.  Still, College Football is special!  Hope everyone enjoyed Championship weekend as much as I did!!

Until tomorrow…
