Ohio State destroys Michigan . . . again

The domination continues. The Ohio State Buckeyes smacked the Michigan Wolverines again, making it eight straight wins in what many consider to be the best rivalry in college football and one of the best in all of sports.

This rivalry has an amazing history, reaching its apex during the ten-year war between Woody and Bo, but the programs are in very different places right now. The Big Ten used to be dominated by the Big Two – Michigan and Ohio State. Now the conference is dominated by Ohio State and Michigan is trying to stay relevant in the second tier with Wisconsin, Penn State and Iowa.

Oklahoma shuts out No. 12 Oklahoma State 27-0


After getting shut out by their in-state rivals, Oklahoma State relinquished its bid in the Bowl Championship Series.

DeMarco Murray ran for two touchdowns, Ryan Broyles returned a punt 88 yards for a score and Oklahoma knocked No. 11 Oklahoma State out of contention for its first BCS appearance with a 27-0 win Saturday.

With representatives of the Fiesta and Orange bowls watching, the Cowboys (9-3, 6-2 Big 12) fell completely flat with their worst offensive performance of the decade. Oklahoma State was shut out for the first time since 2005 by an Oklahoma defense coming off its worst outing of the year, a 41-13 loss at Texas Tech last week.

Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson threw for only 44 yards on 9-for-21 passing after missing last week’s game with injuries to his head and shoulder. He was pulled in the fourth quarter with his lowest passing total since taking over as the starting quarterback early in the 2007 season.

Oklahoma State didn’t have a single first down in the second half and finished with only 109 yards of total offense.

Neither team — or the referees, for that matter — gave the fans much to cheer for early on as the game was marred by fumbles and constant replay reviews, including one that required a second look for officials to get the down and distance correct. But while the Sooners made up for their early mistakes, OSU never got anything going.

Considering the injuries they’ve dealt with all season, this is a huge win for the Sooners. The victory is also Oklahoma’s seventh straight in the Bedlam rivalry and its 30th consecutive at home.

Navy crushes Army, but Knights don coolest uniforms in college football

The Navy Midshipmen blasted their respected rivals, the Army Black Knights, 34-0 on Saturday. There’s not much to say about this game outside of Navy did whatever it wanted while Army struggled to pick up first downs.

However, Army sported some of the coolest uniforms I’ve ever seen:


The game wasn’t very good this year, but Army-Navy is one of the best rivalries in college football, if not the best. The two schools live to beat one another, but no teams have more respected for each other, either.

Michigan guarantees win over Michigan State

Michigan defensive end Brandon Graham told reporters following last Saturday’s loss to Penn State that the Wolverines will not lose to rival Michigan State this weekend.

“We are not going to lose to State,” Michigan defensive end Brandon Graham told reporters Saturday following a 46-17 loss at Penn State.

Two days later, Graham’s teammates didn’t fault him for firing up Michigan State more.

“He wanted to guarantee a win. We’re going to back him up on it,” defensive tackle Terrance Taylor said Monday.

Oddsmakers aren’t counting on that happening.

Michigan State (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) is a 5 1/2-point favorite to beat Michigan (2-5, 1-2) for the first time since 2001, when T.J. Duckett caught a touchdown pass with disputed time on the clock, and for the first time in Ann Arbor since 1990, when Desmond Howard dropped a pass in the end zone after he appeared to be tripped.

Michigan is an underdog at home against Michigan State for the first time since 1968 when the Spartans were a six-point favorite, according to World Features Syndicate. The Wolverines won that game 28-14.

When you’re one of the more storied programs in the nation and you lose to Toledo on your home turf, you automatically forfeit the right to guarantee victory over anyone.
