Hangover Sports Roundup: Boise State falls, Bears rise
Thanksgiving weekend provided a major shakeup in the BCS standings. Fans hoping for Auburn and Oregon to fall instead saw mid-major Boise State lose a heart breaker to Nevada. Despite Nevada being nationally ranked, Boise State can kiss their national title dreams goodbye. Now TCU remains the only non-BCS school contending for the national title and will have to hope Auburn and Oregon slip up. TCU will most likely get robbed, but at least this will be the last time they'll have to play politics with the BCS. Starting with the 2012 season, the Horned Frogs take their talents to the Big East Conference. While TCU gets to sit at the 'big kids table' the Mountain West Conference takes another blow towards national respect.
The Chicago Bears haven't been taken too seriously this season. After all, their schedule is pretty mediocre and quarterback Jay Cutler isn't exactly a fan favorite. But after the Bears stopped Michael Vick and the Eagles 31-26, maybe it's time to call the Bears an NFC contender. Vick had a good performance with 333 yards and two touchdowns, and the Bears were still able to get the victory. Chicago finally has a high-power offense to go along with their tough defense.
Normally the Buffalo Bills have nothing to play for in the months of November and December. Nevertheless, the Bills took the fight to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It ended with an overtime thriller which saw the Bills' victory slip away. Bills receiver Steve Johnson dropped the the game-winning pass in the endzone, eventually leading to the Steelers hitting the game-winning 41-yard field goal. After the game Johnson appeared dejected and stated he'll never get over his massive mistake.
