Thus far in the 2011/2012 Bowl Season, the Pac-12 has not fared well. They are 1-4, with the only win being a come from behind variety for the conference newcomer, Utah. UCLA, ASU, Cal and U-Dub have lost each of their bowl games.
Now it is Oregon's turn to showcase the talent out West. The Ducks take on Wisconsin in Pasadena's Rose Bowl, a game that figures to test the limits of the scoreboard. Read more about it here and get a taste of Nike's fresh new gear. So fresh and so clean, clean.
Later on Monday, the 4th ranked Stanford Cardinal take on 3rd ranked Oklahoma State in Glendale, AZ at the Tostito's Fiesta Bowl. Each year, the Fiesta Bowl winds up being one of the most exciting bowl games and this round looks to be no different.
Andrew Luck must play well as all the scouts will be watching... especially those who are employed by the Colts and Rams. After Heisman Winner Robert Griffin III put on a show versus Washington, it is Luck's turn to answer the bell. (RG3 declared for the NFL draft following the 123 point Alamo Bowl shootout).
Luck figures to be the 1st player selected in the 2012 NFL draft, although the two teams with the worst records (Indy and STL) already have franchise QBs in Sam Bradford and Peyton Manning.
One thing is for sure, January 2nd in Prime-Time is going to be an incredible night of college football.
