Hi I'm Josh Sachnoff and I currently attend the University of Oregon. Ever since I was a young boy I have had a love for sports and have had the opportunity to experience and travel to some of the most treasured sports venues in America with my dad. I am a college football fanatic and love the college football gameday experience, but I am also a fan of just about any other sport. Here is a look of my travels over the years and blog posts concerning recent sporting events.
BCS National Title Game '11
BCS National Championship 1/10/11 Oregon vs Auburn
Wednesday, November 28, 2012
College Football Week 13 Recap
My Overall Record: 92-38
My Record in Week 13: 6-4
Best game from Week 13: #13 Oklahoma 51, #21 Oklahoma State 48 (OT)
"Civil War" between Oregon and Oregon State
Most of the chaos was settled this past weekend. Notre Dame pulled their undefeated regular season off at USC 22-13. The Irish defense came up with a huge goal line stand again with minutes remaining to ice the game. The Irish are now Miami bound and playing for their first National Championship since 1988. The second spot in the National Championship game will go to the winner of the SEC Championship game between #2 Alabama and #3 Georgia. The other BCS bowl games are beginning to look a lot less complicated now. Stanford clinched the Pac-12 North this past weekend at UCLA 35-17, meaning the Oregon Ducks will have to settle for an at-large bid to a BCS Bowl game. Nebraska was able to sneak out a close one at Iowa 13-7 on Friday to win the Big Ten Legends Division. The Ohio State Buckeyes hung on at home to beat Michigan 26-21 to go undefeated on the season. It's just to bad that the Buckeye's season is finished and they will not be going to the BCS National Championship due to their one year probation. The Florida Gators pretty much guaranteed themselves a spot in a BCS bowl game with an impressive 37-26 win at in-state rival Florida State. The craziest game on Saturday was the shootout in Bedlam between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Sooners needed a four yard touchdown run from Blake Bell with four seconds remaining to take the game into overtime. In overtime, The Cowboys kicked a field goal on their first possession, but the Sooners took advantage of the situation and won the game 51-48 on a Brennan Clay 18 yard rushing touchdown. Oklahoma must defeat TCU this upcoming weekend and needs Kansas State to lose at home against Texas to win the Big 12 Championship.
BCS Bowl Game Scenarios
BCS National Championship (Miami, FL)
#1 Notre Dame vs #2 Alabama or #3 Georgia
Fiesta Bowl (Glendale, AZ)
#5 Oregon (at-large bid) vs #6 Kansas State or #11 Oklahoma (Big 12 Champion)
Rose Bowl (Pasadena, CA)
#12 Nebraska or Wisconsin (Big Ten Champion) vs #8 Stanford or #16 UCLA (Pac-12 Champion)
Sugar Bowl (New Orleans, LA)
#4 Florida (SEC at-large) vs #6 Kansas State or #11 Oklahoma or Rutgers or Louisville (at-large)
Orange Bowl (Miami, FL)
#13 Florida State or Georgia Tech (ACC Champion) vs Rutgers or Louisville or #17 Kent State
Note: If mid-major #17 Kent State defeats #21 Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship they can earn a BCS at-large bid. Kent State needs to be ranked at least 16th in the BCS and in front of a BCS automatic qualifier. Currently a Big East school is not ranked in the Top 25.
