First favorite? That'd be the greatest game ever played, Boise St's Fiesta Bowl.
But Friday's game was awesome. Utah won the Sugar Bowl in convincing fashion. My favorite play, the one that epitomized the way Utah dominated the game, was when Alabama's running back tried to block a Utah blitzer and was pasted. They kept showing him lying face down on the sideline, until finally a few minutes later they reported he had gotten the wind knocked out of him.
Last undefeated team from a "real BCS conference" indeed.
