Arizona vs. Nebraska
December 30, 2009, 7pm Central
San Diego, California
Network: ESPN/ESPN Radio
The Holiday Bowl has a reputation for shootouts, but the 2009 game will likely be a struggle dominated by defense.
For the second year, Texas Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy has been named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. Other finalists include:
- Tim Tebow, QB, Florida Gators
- Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama Crimson Tide
- Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford Cardinal
- Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska Cornhuskers
Even after McCoy's less than Heisman-worthy performance Saturday night, I like his odds of winning. Many of the votes were probably cast prior to the Big 12 Championship against Nebraska, when his stellar game against Texas A&M was still front of mind.
