Utah 31, Alabama 17.

For those keeping track, non-BCS schools are now 3-1 in BCS Bowls.

Also, Nick Saban may be coach of the year, but he was flat-out out-coached by Kyle Whittingham in the Sugar Bowl.

NP ... I'm not on very many people's good list right now ...
and you're right ... the last group is where I really messed up and any one of the last 3 games would have changed things.
Thanks for hosting this again. :)

Not so fast, Chapagne.

For reasons I can't fully explain, I gave Chadwick a freebie pick in the Independence Bowl (NIU did not win). Sorry, dude.
