Colleges

Big story of the weekend:Big 12 Championship Game set

The Big 12 South was decided 2 weeks ago when Oklahoma State's victory over Texas Tech clinched the North title for Texas.

The Big 12 North was a bit more complicated. Colorado had first shot to claim it, but were blown out by Nebraska 30-3

Then Iowa State got it's shot to win the title, but Kansas upset the Cyclones 24-21 with a brilliant fourth quarter.

So now that the smoke has cleared, who wins the Big XII North? Colorado.

Yikes!

Big 12 Games

Texas 40, Texas A&M 29

Texas was going to the Big 12 championship regardless of what happened in this game. However, A&M backup QB Stephen McGee almost singlehandedly beat the Longhorns by himself as he was the game's leading rusher and notched a couple rushing touchdowns.

In the end, Texas's defense kept them in the ballgame late and Raymonce Taylor added a couple rushing TDs of his own to keep their championship aspirations alive.

In case you had forgotten, Adrian Peterson is really a good player. He had 237 yards on 24 carries to lead the Sooners to a Bedlam Game victory.

Our Adopted Team

Southern Miss 26, Tulane 7

In a Hurricane Katrina makeup game, Southern Miss's Dustin Almond threw for 276 yards to beat Tulane and, mercifully put an end to Tulane's season.

However, Since Tulane went 2-9 under Cheap Seats "adoption", CPS has stepped in and removed the Green Wave from our care and placed them in a foster home.

Around the State

SMU 40, UTEP 27

Jordan Palmer still looks like a legit pro prospect, but Jerad Romo was better on this day.

Houston 35, Rice 18

Behind the passing of Kevin Kolb, Houston wins the Bayou Bucket easily.

Denver Broncos 24, Dallas Cowboys 21 (OT)

Thankfully the Giants lost in Seattle, otherwise the Cowboys would be behind the 8-ball as far as winning the division. As for the game, Billy Cundiff showed why he got cut the first time, as he botched what would have been a game-winning field goal.

Game Ball: Jason Witten
He was the Cowboys leading reciever in terms of yards and receptions, and he scored an important TD

St. Louis 33, Houston 27

OK, one thing to allow a big comeback, quite another when it's a guy from Harvard leading the other teams' comeback. Harvard!
