28 November 2008
In particular it only accentuates the trend of blowouts in highly anticipated college football games in 2008. It actually predates back to the BCS game last January Rose Bowl USC 49 Illinois 17 Fiesta Bowl West Virginia 48 Oklahoma 28 Sugar Bowl Georgia 41 Hawaii 10 BCS Title LSU 38 OSU 24 The trend continued early with numerous early highly touted non conference games turned into lop sided laughers. It has only gotten worse in conference play and in particular its been very public in nationally televised games. Alabama 34 Clemson 10 ABC national prime time game USC 35 Ohio State 3 ABC national prime time game Alabama 41 Georgia 30 (not that close) ABC national prime time game Georgia 52 LSU 38 CBS National Game
Florida 49 Georgia 10 CBS National Game Texas 56 Missouri 31 ABC National prime time game Florida 51 LSU 21 CBS National Game Oklahoma 65 Texas Tech 21 ABC National Prime Time Game
This weekend has some interesting games and next weekend has the slate of games to make up for the propensity for big time blowouts on the national state. Hopefully the trend stops and we see some great football these final 2 weekends and into bowl season.
