Do you hear that? The hush that has befallen over the city of Los Angeles? It’s there and for every one loss team behind the Trojans in the BCS, they are celebrating just as quietly.
With Oregon State’s 33-31 victory over the Troy-Dynasty, it allows West Virginia, Auburn, Florida, Louisville and Notre Dame to get that much closer to Arizona and the National Championship.
A late rally by USC ended up being all for not as quarterback John David Booty’s 2-point conversion pass attempt was batted down by the Beaver’s defensive end Jeff Van Orsow.
And just for today, LA is silent.
More CFB tidbits…
- A Gator sized toast at the Cocktail…Florida bounced back from their lost to Auburn by defeating Georgia 21-14 in Jacksonville. And even though the Gator’s gained 319 total yards, it was as sloppy as the Florida swamps. “Thank God for great defense,” said Gator coach Urban Meyer. After forcing four turnovers, Meyer bowed his head in prayer.
- AD who?…In Oklahoma’s 26-10 win over Missouri, junior running back Allen Patrick rushed for 162 yards in the place of injured Adrian Peterson. After that performance, who needs Peterson?
And finally…Congratulations to the Temple Owls whose 28-14 win over Bowling Green ends a 20-game losing streak.
