PROTEST PLAYOFF '08: Sweet Sixteen (Day 2)

2008-16B

FOUR DAYS UNTIL KICKOFF!

Sugar Bowl: Although No. 1 seed Oklahoma's region was available with the first pick, the Sugar Bowl stuck with its SEC affiliations in taking Florida's region.

Holiday Bowl: The Holiday Bowl got a rare treat - if Texas advances, it would mark one of the few times that bowl has had one of its actual tie-ins advance during the playoff era.

Oh, a few upsets. Been a while since we had any of those. How fresh.
