Doc's 2006 Gator Bowl Preview by Greg Davis - 12/26/2005

2005 Holiday Bowl Preview Oklahoma Vs. Oregon by Greg Davis - 12/23/2005
The Oregon Ducks are hoping for a much better outcome to this year's Holiday Bowl than fellow Pac-10 representative California experienced last year. Despite their No. 5 ranking in the final BCS standings, Oregon (10-1, 7-1) was passed over much the same way the Cal Bears were a year ago. The Ducks will have to guard against the same letdown potential that Cal suffered in an embarrassing 45-31 defeat to Big 12 representative Texas Tech -- a team they were supposed to dominate.

2006 Outback Bowl Preview by Dallas Jackson - 12/12/2005
When you think of Iowa football, you don't usually think of air-it-out passing, nor do you think they will burn their opponents with a ground game offense. What you think of most in regards to Iowa is a hard-hitting defense. However, this year's Iowa squad managed to put up 30.5 ppg this season. How? I don't exactly know. In fact, I rechecked my math to make sure I had that right. What I do know, is that as Drew Tate goes, so do the Hawkeyes.

2005 Alamo Bowl Preview by Dallas Jackson - 12/09/2005
Michigan is third from the bottom in the Big Ten in terms of points per game (28.8), yards per game (382.6) and total rushing yards (1809), but somehow managed to lead the conference in time of possession (32:59).
