Should be an interesting matchup. The Holiday Bowl is usually a pretty entertaining bowl game every year

Best Holiday Bowl moment ever was watching Ty Detmer's mom crying after A&M dislocated both of his shoulders. The Aggies had already dislocated his non-throwing shoulder and Ty decided to go back out there, so I always said, "Don't be mad at the Aggies, Mrs. Detmer. Be mad at your son. He is the one that decided to go back out there while he was already injured. You can't expect them to go easy on him, just because he is hurt. "

I thought the best moment was when Cal was crying cuz Texas got into the Rose Bowl instead of them & then they got completely spanked & beat down by a Texas Tech team who got destroyed by Texas earlier in the year.

I dont remember Mack crying. I just remember him begging.

Doesnt matter anyway.

Cal got completely stomped by a decent team at best while Texas beat Michigan (a great team) in the Rose Bowl.

Who remembers the Texas-Washington Holiday bowl? Major Applewhite's last stand, one of the greatest games I've ever seen..

Texas clearly did. They were obviously the better team.

Owned: 2004- Texas Tech 45, Cal 31. Texas Tech was an 11 point underdog.

Sonny Cumbie throws for 520 yds & 3 TDs while averaging 8.7 yds per pass.

Rodgers calls Texas "classless" before the game. Then throws for 246 yds 1 TD & 1 INT averaging only 5.8 yds per pass.

The backstory to the game:

"Undeserving" Texas beats Michigan 38-37 in the Rose Bowl.

Texas beat Texas Tech 51-21 on their own turf earlier in the year.

But changing your vote because you think that Texas is the better team is not pathetic.

If you win the Rose Bowl, then either you deserved to be there or your opponent didnt. I'm pretty sure Michigan deserved it.

And Texas Tech runs a gimmick passing offense and had a bad defense.

I'm pretty sure that Cal only lost Geoff McArthur because he broke his leg during the season. If you can show me who the other starting WR was then I will believe you.

the SMU/BYU game was great. But the A&M stomping of BYU was better - especially after BYU players complained about not playing against a better team... Got what they deserved that day...

I like Cal in this game. Expect A&M to get a big dose of Lynch...

Yea my brother goes to A&M so I dont really hate them anymore.

That's alright tho. I can just put all that extra hate on Oklahoma.

A&M thrashing BYU is a great memory. But to enjoy watching a nice lady like Mrs. Detmer crying, and say it is your favorite moment is sad. I seriously doubt that she was upset with the Aggies, but more that her child was hurt badly (which I think most parents would be).

Chase Lymon broke his leg.

I bit the bullet and paid extra for some seats, but if you're going to take a bowl trip, might as well do it right.

I hear you, I'm a Stanford fan, and here I am defending Cal.

Chase Lymon was a starter with great stats until he broke his leg for the second time in his college career (he resembles Curtis with the St Louis Rams). He was drafted by the Saints because he had good potential. Unfortunately he broke his leg again in mini-camp for the Saints.

1988 OSU 62 - Wyoming 14

Ahh, memories. Barry Sanders had 220 yds on 29 carries (7.6 ypc) and 5 TD's in only 3 quarters. Too bad those yards didn't count toward his season stats. Then they would really be unreachable.
