You probably remember Brian Bosworth as the crazy linebacker with weird hair who was good in college but sucked in the NFL and once got trucked by Bo Jackson.

College Football Roundup: The Big 12 Meets the SEC


It's Oklahoma and Florida for the BCS Title—an imperfect end to a season when no football team was perfect. Except, you know, Utah and Boise State. But they don't really count.
