    Shocker in New Orleans?

    Utah up 21-0 at the end of the first quarter.

    89.3% on ESPN predicted Alabama would win this game.

    I'm kinda torn on who to pull for. The SEC has only lost one bowl game so far, but I always dig the underdog.

    This isn't that much of a shocker. Alabama is really good, but they were never a great team. And Utah is much better than people give them credit for. People are way too in to brand name when they think about these games.

    I would love to see Utah pull off the upset. They're playing really well tonight.

    I don't really see this as a shocker, Utah is undefeated.

    Now, Tex Tech getting blown out by Ole Miss...

    Prepare yourself for the talking heads proclaiming the Utes #1.

    In retrospect...the lack of support for USC in the title game was ridiculous.

    As much as this season proves the flaws in the BCS is it also shows that a plus-1 system would be just as flawed. There were at least five teams with legit claims to the championship and two more if you include Texas Tech and Alabama who looked legit before the bowl games.
