Jimmy needed the day off to recover from yesterday's wild bowl games. I don't blame him. South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery led the Gamecocks to victory with 148 receiving yards and a touchdown, but was ejected for this fight with Nebraska defensive back Alfonzo Dennard. Both are expected to be first-round draft picks. Inspired by their Darth Vader helmets, Oregon put up 45 points on Wisconsin to win its first Rose Bowl since 1917. But the Ducks needed a failed clock-stopping spike by the Badgers to secure the victory. Also of importance, Wisconsin tight ends coach Joe Rudolph was caught picking his nose and eating it. Oklahoma State beat Stanford to win the Fiesta Bowl. Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson missed kicks at the end of regulation and in the first overtime but as this photo shows, the laces were in. Lastly, Houston quarterback Case Keenum threw for 532 yards and three touchdowns in the Cougars' 30-14 win over Penn State. If you missed it, here's a good rundown of yesterday's action.
