We talk about all of Saturday's bowls without once mentioning the title sponsors. Take that, we say!
• The Cal Golden Bears pulled out a 24-17 win over the Miami Hurricanes in Telecom Conglomerate Park in San Francisco after breaking out a winning preparation strategy (from the AP): "The Bears’ campus is roughly 12 miles from San Francisco, yet the team stayed in a hotel in the city during its week of preparation, crossing the Bay Bridge for daily practice in Berkeley." In other completely unrelated news, Cal-Berkeley would like to break away from the California state university tuition price structure so they can charge up to 25% more for the privilege of being a Berkeley student.
• Florida State 42, Wisconsin 13. More time was spent on the Billy Mays forced promotional tie-in than covering the game, which was all for the better. Just so we're clear, though: we're not touchers, Billy. We don't want to be touched. Keep your arms at your sides should we ever cross paths.
• And as covered here previously on "Baywatch Nights", West Virginia pulled off what seemed unlikely through most of the contest: a 31-30 win. Pat White aside, our new mancrush is on UNC receiver Hakeem Nicks. This catch makes our toes tingle still. Go your own way, young man.
