NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Britton Ransford weighs in today with a fun little piece he was assigned. The top 5 most memorable WSU Cougars football moments he can remember in his lifetime. Big plays and stifling defense highlighted the 2003 Holiday Bowl. Who forgets the 1997 Ryan Leaf Apple Cup, or 2007 at UW Alex Brink’s last game?
NWSportsBeat.com Oregon sports blogger Matthew Martz tells us his reasons and projections for why the 2012 Rose Bowl will be won by the Oregon Ducks football team. A little LaMichael James, Kenjon Barner and De’Anthony Thomas, plus the fact that the Ducks outran the Badgers by nearly 800 yards on the year for starters.
NWSportsBeat.com Oregon sports blogger Matthew Martz sat down with Oregon Ducks offensive lineman Ryan Clanton this week for a quick chat about the team, the preperation, Chip Kelly, and the scouting report for the Ducks vs. Wisconsin Badgers 2012 Rose Bowl game in Pasadena California. Clanton, along with freshman center Hroniss Grasu have only allowed 10 sacks in 2011.
It’s time for the 2012 Rose Bowl between the Oregon Ducks and the Wisconsin Badgers. The matchup in the Rose Bowl – a game between two top-10 teams and each of which was mentioned in preseason national title talk – is highly thought of. Power vs. Speed. Should be a classic. LaMichael James vs. Montee Ball for all the roses.
