Texas wants to send off coach Mack Brown a winner after 16 seasons of success. The Longhorns’ head coach is 10-4 in bowl games at Texas, and hasn’t lost one since the 2009 national championship game to Alabama.
Tommy Rees passed for 319 yards in his final college game, Kyle Brindza kicked five field goals and No. 25 Notre Dame muddled through a 29-16 victory against Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl on Saturday.
With the BCS’s 15-year rule atop college football about to close, let’s take a look back at the 10 worst head coach hires of the era – and see if we can learn anything from these disasters.
Each bowl game will carry a different storyline with its game, which helps to make each game unique. Colorado State has already served up one of the more unbelievable endings we will be sure to see this bowl season, with a wild rally against Washington State in the New Mexico Bowl. If that was a preview of things to come this bowl season, hang on tight!
Army will never be a dominant force in college football the way Texas can be, but both programs have a special place in college football’s history. Seeing them each reach their expectations is capable if the right coach is brought in.
Texas head coach Mack Brown is retiring after 16 seasons, with his final game to be the Dec. 30 Alamo Bowl against Oregon.
Navy beat Army 34-7 on Saturday for its 12th consecutive victory in the series. Keenan Reynolds’ 29th rushing touchdown broke the single-season mark for a quarterback.
In all likelihood, Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston will walk away with the prestigious award. The 19-year-old has thrown for 38 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions, completing 68 percent of his passing attempts.
Winston: “I knew I did nothing wrong. I knew I could respect the process and I’d eventually be vindicated. It was more about me being silent for my family because I didn’t want to put my family in those situations.”
The Navy Midshipmen has not only defeated Army 11 straight times — they’ve won 13 of the last 14.
Boston College running back Andre Williams is hoping to capture the Heisman Trophy.
The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.
Are the two best teams in the country right now scheduled to collide in Pasadena, California? It would be difficult to prove otherwise.
Winston will have plenty of company at the Heisman Trophy ceremony – though he’s not expected to have much competition.
The 19-year-old Heisman Trophy candidate was accused of raping a female student in December last year, but Meggs says there is not enough evidence for anyone to be charged in the case.
