You’re an idiot if you actually think that was a good game. As an Auburn fan I’d love to watch it again, but it was far from one of the 25 best games of the season. Heck…it wasn’t even one of the best 25 games of the BOWL season.

Missing BYU-Houston. That 47-46 thriller was an incredible offensive showcase on both sides. Too bad it was missed.

Beating alabama in the sugar bowl will be something oklahoma fans will hang their hats on for like twenty years lol cause they probably wont win a national championship for thirty years. especially since they have taken a back seat to baylor, oklahoma state, and next year texas!!!

Said the guy whose team just kicked seven of its players off the team. Keep on dreaming Longhorn.

Middle Tennessee state vs. Marshall 51-49 MTSU scores on 4th and goal on last play of the game

anyone who has any football brains would put the UCF-Louisville game as THE top game- they just need to see it to believe it. The only game most people saw was the Baylor ‘smackdown’.

OU/Alabama was the biggest upset of the year.OU had to to come from behind in every game they played. For them to beat Alabama with such a weak team was something.

Backseat to OSU?! OSU has beaten OU ONCE in 11 years! Baylor has beaten OU TWICE in program history! And you’re crazy if you think OU is going to lose to Texas next year.

Nebraska/Northwestern… hail marry… should be there. Probably not top 10 but still…

isu/wvu 24 point 4th quarter comeback and then3 ot’s. Would have been great but isu ended season at 3-9 so that I understand.Still a great game to watch tho
