College Bowl Wrap-up (12-27-08)

Two of the day's three big bowl games have played out with thrilling results. West Virginia University's senior QB, Pat White, became the first-ever to win four bowl games as the starting QB after lifting his Mountaineers to an exciting 31-30 victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. White threw for 332 yards and 3 TD's, ending his college career on a high note. The Moutaineers finished the season with a 9-4 record while dropping the 'Heels to an overall record of 8-5.

Sophomore RB Noel Devine added 61 yards on the ground and an 18-yard first quarter TD run. West Virginia--and College Football, as well--will indeed miss Pat White, dearly, but will get the chance of watching the elusive Devine for at least one more season.

Like the Moutaineers, the Florida State Seminoles finished their 2008 campaign on a high-note. Florida State, 9-4, defeated the struggling Wisconsin Badgers (7-6) 42-13, earlier today as well. Badger RB, senior P.J. Hill, ran for 140 yards, but Wisconsin's three lost fumbles came back to haunt them as FSU rolled on to a 28-0 run in the third and fourth quarter.

Florida State's sophomore QB Christian Ponder's 2 TD passes and mistake-free play made up for Wisconsin's 201 yards on the ground, giving FSU the Florida Citrus Bowl game trophy and the thrill of victory.

Looking for more Bowl action?? May want to check out the Emerald Bowl (Miami FL. v.s. California) on ESPN. Currently, the Golden Bears from California are ahead of the 'Canes, 17-14, with the fourth quarter begining. California's two TD's are credited to sophomore RB Jahvid Best. Best has accumulated 167 yards and two TD's on the ground through the first 3 QTR's of play.

Still want more football?? There's always week 17 NFL action tomorrow from 1 PM ET until around 11 PM ET tomorrow.
