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

    I'm a UT fan but I still dont hate A&M.

    I hope they mop up Cal.



    And I also hope that Nebraska murders Oklahoma.

    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..

    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...
