   Its been a long season and now we are in the final two weeks of the regular season. The Bowl matchups will begin to fall into place over the next week. We’ll take a quick look back at last week and check my Top 25.

Hampden-Sydney  23    JHU      21                        Hopkins  23-7

    I am finishing the year strong with a 7-2 record. One of the two I missed was the Hopkins playoff game. Good for the Bluejays that I underestimated them.

   Best Game by a BCS Team:    Mississippi

 By beating LSU, the Rebels showed some of what was expected of them at the beginning of the season. In doing so they probably locked up a pretty good bowl berth.

 

  Best Game by a non-BCS Team:   Ohio U.

By defeating N. Illinois and Temple over the last two weeks, coach Frank Solich has gotten the Bobcats into the MAC championship game and into a bowl again.

 

    Best Individual Performance of the Week:   Jeremiah Masoli, QB Oregon

   In a must win game for the Ducks bowl hopes, Masoli came through in the second half and overtime. The Oregon team needed inspiration to pull out the 44-41 win and Masoli provided it with 6 TD’s combined through the air and on the ground.
