When University of Cincinnati QB Zach Collaros fractured his ankle in the November 12 loss to West Virginia at Paul Brown Stadium, it looked he was finished for the year.

But during his rehab since that date, Collaros has been ahead of schedule by two weeks according to doctors.

There is a chance that Collaros could play in today’s (December 31) game in the Liberty Bowl against Vanderbilt.

Collaros passed for 1,860 yards and 14 touchdowns. While he was absent for three games, head coach Butch Jones used the two-QB system of Munchie Legaux and Jordan Luallen that was good enough to win a piece of the Big East championship.

The Bearcats (9-3, 5-2 Big East) are returning to the postseason after last year’s diasppointing 4-8 record.

Their opponent, the Vanderbilt Commodores finished at 6-6 overall, 2-6 in the SEC. They’re making just its fifth bowl game ever and have a 2-1-1 record in the postseason. This will be their first-ever appearance in the Liberty Bowl, which is located in Memphis, four hours from the school’s home in Nashville.

UC and Vandy have two common opponents in Connecticut and Tennessee. The Commodores beat UConn 24-21 and lost to the Volunteers in overtime, 27-21. The Bearcats beat UConn 35-27 and lost to the Vols 45-23.

Oakland University is a mid-major Division I university located between Auburn Hills and Rochester, Michigan between Detroit. It has 18,553 students.

The Golden Grizzlies play teams like Tennessee, Dayton, Cincinnati, Butler and other big-time schools to make money to fund their basketball program. They figure that they’ll lose but sometimes they pull an upset.

The school, a member of the Summit League, pulled a nice upset against Tennessee.

Keith Benson had 26 points and 10 rebounds as Oakland beat the seventh-ranked Volunteers 89-82, three days after losing to Michigan State by a point. The Spartans were ranked in the top 10 as well.

The loss was only the second time that Tennessee, now 7-1, has lost on their home court to a non-conference team in Bruce Pearl’s six seasons.

The Volunteers led 76-68 with 7:18 to play in the game. But the physical play inside by the Vols drew several fouls down the stretch as the Golden Grizzlies used to their advantage to get back in the game. They had a 13-0 run of mostly from free throw shooting to take an 81-76 lead that it never lost.

Tennessee missed four free throws and several three-point attempts down the stretch.

Oakland is now 6-5 on the season.
