Longhorns meet the Sun Devils at the Holiday BowlTuesday, December 25th, 2007
Now that THAT is out of the way, the culmination of the 2007 NCAA college football season continues with the Holiday Bowl on December 27 when the Texas Longhorns lock horns with the Arizona State Sun Devils.
And although missing a BCS bowl game should definitely be a disappointment for the Arizona State Sun Devils and their fans, they still are coming off their best season in over a decade and they should still be excited about their date with the Texas Longhorns at Qualcomm Stadium two days after Christmas.
Hell, it’s not easy to go 10-2 with ten being the most victories the football program has got since they won 11 back in 1996 when they won the Pac-10 title.
And although first-year Arizona State Sun Devils head coach Dennis Erickson may beg to differ about his team missing out on a BCS bowl game, he knows the BCS ranking system can sometimes be unfair.
”It’s working as well as it can,” coach Dennis Erickson said of the BCS. ”They have to make decisions. That’s the system. They made their decisions; they voted and it’s over and done. I remember when Auburn was 13-0 (in 2004) and didn’t make it into the championship game. That’s just how it is.”
Facing the Texas Longhorns is no…
