    And the UCLA defense is giving up 12 points per game. Could this be the year they finally put it togeter? BCS Championship Game is at the Rose Bowl (UCLA's home field) this year. [​IMG]

    Just got back from the game and it was an amazing feat to behold. Keep in mind that UW hadn't given up a rushing TD this season.
    I am not ready to pencil in my alma mater for an extra home game this January, but if they are fortunate enough to win out in the PAC-10, I do think they deserve to go. They take on Cal next before hitting the road to undefeated Washington State and once-beaten Stanford. Then they host the Oregon Ducks (#5 in one poll). Florida just lost. Miami and VTech will produce only one unbeaten team at most. Oklahoma and Nebraska will only produce one unbeaten team at most. UCLA and Oregon (and WSU although their strength of schedule is horrid outside of the Pac-10) will only produce one unbeaten team at most. So if everyone in each scenario wins out, you'll have 3 unbeaten teams vying for Pasadena. Should be interesting.
    I bought my season tix this year just to see DeShaun's last year. He's the kind of back you only see once in a long while at your school. The much improved defense is really a pleasure to watch. However we lose the heart of that defense to graduation next year (Thomas, Anderson, Coleman, Nece) so if UCLA is going to make a run, they need to do it this year.

    They sure look good, but I am not gonna celebrate too soon. They still have some tough games ( @ WSU, Oregon). I got burned once in '98, so I'll wait and see. But things look pretty good. They key is if everyone stays healthy. If we go undefeated, I'm sure we will be in the Rose Bowl.

    Speaking of the Redskins, who would have imagined this week's NFL Monday Night game will feature two 0-4 teams: Cowboys and Redskins.

    I was skeptical at the beginning of the season as well, because we never live up to our expectations. But this is a VERY good football team. DeShaun Foster is has finally evolved into the tailback everyone thought he would be. The Oregon game is obviously going to be the toughest game of the year, and WSU and Stanford are going to be sleepers. Also, USC will do anything to take away our Rose Bowl hopes.
    Poli Dixon is out 2-3 weeks with a seperated shoulder, which is too bad, because he was finally getting some confidence (for a guy with a NFL type body, he sure drops a lot of passes). Anderson came out of the game early also, but it was only cramping, so he'll be back next week. How about true freshman Matt Ware! What a player that guy is going to be!
