The USC bowl went as I expected. USC dominated, front to back, and Penn State was flat for the entire game. Penn State was over rated at 8th, and I would have rather have seen USC play Texas. USC is clearly a top 5 team, and I am not sure that Penn State is even a top 10 team.
The Dolphins continue to get no respect. While I agree that the Ravens are a better team on paper, they are still going to have to win on the road with a rookie QB leading the team. The last time the teams met, the Ravens easily won, and I expect them to be favored to win. However, I think there is something special about this Dolphin team, and I am going to predict the upset. I think their QB is going get a bit rattled, and will not be able win the game in the 4th quater. I am expecting a tight game, and I think it will come down to a team executing in the 4th quarter to win. Looking back over the past 6 match ups, the teams are tied at 3-3.
The computers are picking the Ravens to win the game, but it does not become official until the teams actually hit the field and play some ball.
Score: 21-20 Dolphins. Its going to be a tight game.
