  • Texas or USC?

    Man, it seems that no one is giving Texas much of a chance against USC. I just don't get it. Texas has been pretty much dominant all year while USC has had a few close calls, namely ASU, ND and Fresno St.

    Does anyone think Texas can get it done?

      Yep, Texas has got it, USC does not. They may have slowed down UCLA, but they still rank 27th in team defense and 40th in yards per game allowed. I think Texas exposes USC and stops the streak.

          USC gives up a touchdown more per game than Texas and they played in a down PAC 10 this year. However, they are still USC so that's all that counts. Texas has to force USC to punt at least twice more than the Horns. If they do that, Texas is your National Champion. If they don't, USC wins an unprecedented third National Championship.

            Texas for sure will win this game. If reggie Bush gets the plague, Lineheart hurts his ankle during his ball room dancing final, and pete Carroll decides to start his NFL coaching job early.

              I think it will be a good game but I also think that USC will win. I also think that Texas' defense is a bit overrated. They are good but how many offensive minded teams did they play this year, probably not much at all and they definitely haven't played a team with an offense like USC. If I remember right, wasn't Oklahoma's defense supposed to dominate USC last year and that didn't happen.

                I dont think that the texas d is overrated at all. I think there offense is very overrated. Vince Young has carried them on the ground and in the air. USC has it. As much as I want texas. As a ucla fan its just not gonna happen lets be realistic people they dont stand a chance

                  Love the fact that hardly anyone is giving Texas a chance. Keep coming with the negativity.

                  Texas will be the National Champions after the Rose Bowl of 2006.

                  And another thing, Texas Tech has a fairly potent offense don't they? and Texas hasn't played anyone? Really? What do you call going to Ohio State and winning that game?

                  You SoCal folks selling these Horns short just wait, you'll see.

                    Oh Im not selling them short at all. I think they are a great team. I just think that SC has basically a nfl team. Texas will not stop them. Believe me i want Texas I hate SC I am a UCLA fan. But its just not gonna happen. I would put money on that and give you the points. The spreads at 7? Thats a WHOLE touchdown!

                      I'll take 7.....this team is different from OU last year. Vince Young can scramble, and the WR's for Texas are big and fast.

                      We'll see.

                        Hey Tx, not all SoCal folks are selling Texas short. I think Texas is going to take it to SC. To me, they are dominant on both sides of the ball and SC isn't going to know what hit them. If Fresno State and ASU can give the mighty Trojans a game, Texas certainly can.

                                Texas Itching to End Sooners' Winning Streak
                                by DJRamFan
                                Longhorns looking for first win in six tries

                                Oct. 3, 2005


                                AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - After all the talk about beating Oklahoma and possibly ending the losing streak, this is the week the No. 2 Texas Longhorns finally get their chance to do it.

                                This year's Texas-Oklahoma matchup in Dallas is the 100th anniversary in a bitter border rivalry that has Longhorns fans more interested in its ugly recent history than its glorious distant past.

                                "We owe them one," Texas senior offensive tackle Jonathan Scott said before the season started.

                                Make that several.

                                Texas (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) hasn't beaten the Sooners (2-2, 1-0) since 1999, when Major Applewhite rallied the Longhorns from an early 17-0 deficit for a 38-28 victory. It was Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops' first season in Norman and his only loss to Texas' Mack Brown.

                                The Red River Rivalry has been all-Oklahoma since.

                                In 2000, it was a 63-14 romp that catapulted a developing Sooners program toward a national title. In 2003, it was another Oklahoma rout - 65-13 - that was Texas quarterback Vince Young's baptism by fire. Oklahoma thumped Texas again last year 12-0, the first time Texas had been shut out since 1980.

                                The Sooners' five-game winning streak has embarrassed the Longhorns and frustrated Brown's quest for his first conference title as a head coach.

                                So what makes Longhorns fans think this year can be different? Chalk it up to changes on both sides of the Red River.

                                Texas entered the season ranked No. 2 coming off its Rose Bowl win over Michigan and solidified its standing as a national title favorite with a 25-22 win at Ohio State on Sept. 10.

                                Young's leadership, the emergence of freshman tailback Jamaal Charles and the dominating play of a veteran defense give this year's Texas team an aura of toughness it hasn't had in recent years.

                                And Oklahoma is struggling. The departure of key players off last year's national title-game team, the hit-and-miss play of freshman quarterback Rhett Bomar and two early losses to TCU and UCLA make the Sooners appear ripe for their first loss in Dallas in the new century.







                                Oh, and sophomore running back Adrian Peterson is banged up. He left the Sooners' 43-21 win over Kansas State on Saturday night in the second quarter with an ankle injury. Stoops said after the game that Peterson will be OK to play against Texas.

                                Bomar hasn't played in this rivalry, yet hardly sounds nervous about what he might face in a game that has created nearly as many goats as heroes of late.

                                "This team, when it comes to the Texas game, we have confidence. We have that swagger," Bomar said. "A lot of people might count us out just like that, but we're going to go down there with all...

                                Sorry boys but why even watch this year. USC will be national champs no matter what team they play in the final game.
