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.

The Boise State Broncos ended their season at 12-1 with 26-3 win over number 20 Utah in the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Doug Martin gave the Broncos a big lift with an 84-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, as the 10th ranked Broncos dominated the game from that point on.

Boise State had turned the ball over three times and was trailing 3-0 when Martin’s run turned the tide in the game.

Kellen Moore threw two touchdown passes as the Broncos won their 12th game of the year.

The Broncos by beating a good Utah team, showed why they’ve only lost one game in the past two years, to Nevada on two missed field goals in November.

Boise State ends the year at 12-1, while Utah falls to 10-3.


* Would’ve been a BCS team until their loss to Nevada in November.

* This was the last game for Boise State as a member of the Western Athletic Conference. It’ll join the Mountain West Conference.

* The Broncos have a solid defensive front, allowing 103.5 rushing yards per game and they lead the nation in sacks at 3.8 per game.

* They use multiple spread formations to use Kellen Moore’s passing ability by still rushed for more than 200 yards a game with the tandem of Doug Martin and Jeremy Avery.

* The Broncos have played in seven consecutive bowl games decided by seven points or less.

* QB Kellen Moore threw for 72 touchdowns and eight interceptions the last two years. He ranks second nationally in passing efficiency behind only Cam Newton of Auburn.

* WR Titus Young has a school record for receiving yardage in a season with over 1,200.

* Kicker/Punter Kyle Brotzman broke the school career record for points by a kicker. He did however miss the two crucial field goals against Nevada.


* The Utes were 8-0 at one point and was on its way to a BCS Bowl until a loss to TCU put those hopes to rest.

* This game was the last for Utah as a member of the Mountain West Conference. In 2011, they move to the Pac-12.

* Utah had a 9-game bowl winning streak coming into the game, the longest active streak in the country and the second longest ever, behind Florida State’s 11.

* Utah has a tough run defense, allowing 104.2 yards a game.

* Starting QB Jordan Wynn is out of a shoulder injury.

* Backup QB Terrance Cain, a senior, has a 9-1 career record as a starter. Is more athletic than Wynn but is not a threat in the passing game.

Pacific 10 Conference extends invitation and Utah accepts without hesitation

compiled from staff and wire reports

Utah’s road to the BCS  has just received a helping hand and a big boost.

As the Pac-10′s newest member, the utes will be playing for a guarenteed spot in one of college football’s elite bowl games rather than hoping and relying on upsets to get in as an at-large team playing in the Mountain West Conference.

Utah officially joined the Pacific 10 Conference on Thursday, leaving behind the Mountain West Conference for the more lucrative opportunities of a league that has access to the Heisman Trophy, Final Four and national titles are all possible instead of dreams.

The Pacific 10 offered Utah to join the league on Wednesday and University President Michael Young officially signed the agreement in front of a crowd of boosters on Thursday.

After playing one final season in the Mountain West this coming fall, Utah will join the Pac-10 in 2011.

The announcement by Utah was held at Rice-Eccles Stadium, where the Utes have enjoyed two undefeated seasons in the past six years. The utes received invitations to the Bowl Championship Series in 2004 and 2008, but they were at-large berths.

Michael Young reminded the media and fans that the Utes are 7-3 against the Pac-10 in the last 10 meetings, including wins over Arizona in 2004 and Oregon State four years ago during Utah’s two unbeaten runs to the BCS.

The gigantic leap by Utah takes them from the Mountain West, where national television are rare, to the major markets of the Pacific-10, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Phoenix.

Utah was the only unbeaten team in 2008, and didn’t even get a chance to play in the BCS title game. A rout of Alabama in the Sugar Bowl helped Utah’s claims of being more than worthy. The Utes ended up finishing number 2 in the final AP poll, the school’s highest finish ever.
