The 78th annual Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas, to some folks is an unknown bowl.

Most people don’t realize it is the second-oldest bowl in the nation to the Rose Bowl.

The game takes place at 2 pm ET on CBS-TV and has Georgia Tech (8-4) going up against Utah (7-5).

The Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech ended the season by losing four of its last six games. They ended 2010 in almost the same fashion going 1-5. Tech started the season at 6-0.

Tech has lost six bowl games in a row and their senior captains, Steven Sylvester and Roddy Jones, have not enjoyed a bowl win in their fantastic careers.

Tech was picked to win the ACC’s Coastal Division but ended up tied for second.

The Utah Utes were in contention in the South Division of the Pac-12, but had an upset loss to the lowly Colorado Buffaloes on November 25.

The Utes have a good defense which ranks seventh nationally in rushing defense, allowing 97 yards a game. They rank 18th in points given up at 19.7.

Georgia Tech ranks third nationally in rushing, averaging 316.8 yards a game.  The Yellow Jackets rank 34th in scoring at 34.9 a game.

Colorado Buffaloes wide receiver Toney Clemons caught 4 passes for 31 yards in Saturday’s 37-17 loss to Ohio State on Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio.

Clemons knows the Buckeyes quite well. He grew up in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, which is northeast of Pittsburgh and was invited to their Junior Day as a 2007 football recruit.

Clemons said that “Ohio State was a team I grew up wanting to play against when I was little. I was fortunate to get a chance to do it-twice.”

And Clemons took two losses. He played two seasons at Michigan (2007, 2008) before transferring to Colorado in 2009. In his freshman year in Ann Arbor, Ohio State visited and won 14-3. In 2008, Michigan played in Ohio Stadium and left with a 42-7 whipping. Clemons, played in 19 games with three starts while at Michigan, did not register a stat in either game against the Buckeyes.

With Saturday’s loss in Columbus, Clemons has faced Ohio State three times and is 0-for-3.

(megasportsnews.com photo)

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Colorado Buffaloes came into the game one of just eight schools to have committed just one turnover in the first three weeks of the season, but that good run of luck ended on the fumbled exchange in the first quarter between Tyler Hansen and Rodney Stewart.

Colorado went 133 minutes, 9 seconds between turnovers.

* WR Tyler McCulloch had his first career touchdown reception of 14 yards from Tyler Hansen in the fourth quarter. It came on his fifth career catch.

* TE Ryan Deehan had a career-high 71 receiving yards, beating his old high of 70 against Baylor in 2010 on seven catches.

* PK Will Oliver, a freshman, remained perfect on the season, 6-for-6 on field goals and 11-of-11 on point after touchdowns for 29 points. Only Jeremy Flores has made more field goals without missing to start a career at Colorado than Oliver. Flores made his first seven over the 2001 and 2002 seasons.

* OLB Josh Hartigan recorded a pair of sacks today, giving him four on the season and 11 in his career.

COLORADO AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Buffaloes beats arch-rival Colorado State for first win of 2011

 

The Colorado Buffaloes won their first game of the season and it came against their in-state arch-rivals in Denver at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Senior quarterback Tyler Hansen marched CU on an 85-yard, 10-minute fourth-quarter drive, topping it off with a 2-yard sneak to help get the Buffs past Colorado State 28-14.

The win was CU’s first of the new season and the first in the coaching career of former Buffaloes star tight end Jon Embree.

Colorado which buried CSU 24-3 in 2010, has won seven of the 11 games with its intrastate rival played in Denver. The game in 2011 of the Rocky Mountain showdown, now sponsored by Cinch Jeans, drew just 57,186, the lowest crowd in 11 CU-CSU games played off campus.

The Buffaloes are 1-2 and play at Ohio State this coming Saturday.

Rodney Stewart

Senior tailback Rodney “Speedy” Stewart was nearly a one-man offensive show for Colorado, rushing 19 times for 98 yards and catching seven passes for 93 to account for 191 yards in total offense. Hansen completed 17 of 32  passes for 215 yards. He led the Buffaloes to 4 TD’s, two rushing and two passing.

The CU defense shut down the Rams. They allowed just 67 yards rushing and held Rams quarterback Pete Thomas to 18 of 28 passing for 157 yards. He came into the game averaging 218.5 yards a game through the air.

One bug-a-boo Colorado has is penalties. They have 29 in three games, including 10 for 114 yards against Colorado State.
