Texas reinstates Monroe for BCS title game

Austin, TX (Sports Network) - Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown announced the reinstatement of versatile freshman kick returner/wide receiver D.J. Monroe at a press conference Monday leading up to next month's BCS National Championship game.

Brown met with the media to discuss the state of the team in preparation for its trip to Pasadena on January 7 against Alabama and indicated Monroe would be with the team.

Monroe had charges of driving while intoxicated dismissed last week. He was arrested on November 15 and was suspended for the Longhorns' final three games of the season -- sitting against Kansas, Texas A&M and for the Big 12 Championship game versus Nebraska.

"I wanted him to learn from it and be more accountable, but he's been practicing with our team every day. So he is not behind. He has not missed anything, and he's had a great attitude since his incident," Brown said Monday.

While listed as a receiver, Monroe served almost exclusively as the team's kick returner this year. In 10 games, he racked up 501 return yards and two touchdowns, averaging a whopping 35.8 yards on 14 returns. The speedster also got into the running game with 110 yards on 20 carries.

Alabama RB Ingram wins Heisman Trophy first in Tuscaloosa History

Alabama RB Ingram wins Heisman Trophy

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Alabama running back Mark Ingram has won the 2009 Heisman Trophy, college football's most prestigious honor.

It was the closest voting ever for the award and the first Heisman Trophy in Alabama's storied history. Ingram edged Stanford running back Toby Gerhart by just 28 points; Texas quarterback Colt McCoy finished third, Nebraska defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh fourth and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow fifth.

Ingram becomes the third consecutive sophomore to capture the award, joining Tebow, the 2007 winner, and Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, last year's recipient. Ingram amassed 1,542 yards and 15 touchdowns on 249 attempts, helping the Crimson Tide go 13-0 and advance to the BCS title game against Texas.

"It's truly a team award. They've had a lot to do with my tremendous success," said Ingram. "I just want to thank all of them, especially the offensive line."

Ingram was the first Alabama player to be a Heisman finalist since quarterback Jay Barker in 1994; no player from the school had ever finished higher than third in the voting.

"It's a great honor to be a member of the Heisman fraternity," said Ingram. "I'm just so excited to bring Alabama their first Heisman winner."

The vote totals showed Ingram with 227 first-place tallies and a total of 1,304 points. Gerhart had 222 first-place votes and 1,276 points.

McCoy, who was last year's runner up to Bradford, compiled 203 first-place markers and 1,145 points. Suh finished fourth with 815 points.

Having set an FBS record for most career collegiate wins with 45 this season, McCoy threw for 3,521 yards and 27 touchdowns, leading the Longhorns to a 13-0 record, a Big 12 championship and a berth into the BCS title game against Alabama and Ingram.

Gerhart helped Stanford advance to its first bowl game since 2001 by rushing for 1,736 yards and an incredible 26 touchdowns -- both tops in the Pac-10.

Suh was attempting to become the second true defensive player to win the award, as former Michigan cornerback and current Green Bay Packers standout Charles Woodson captured the Heisman in 1997 for the national championship- winning Wolverines.

There are currently 926 voters for the Heisman Trophy, comprising of 870 media representatives, 55 living Heisman winners and one overall fan vote.

Tebow had 390 total points, followed by Clemson running back C.J. Spiller (223), Boise State QB Kellen Moore (100), Houston quarterback Case Keenum (37), Cincinnati wide receiver Mardy Gilyard (23) and Notre Dame wideout Golden Tate (21).

Ingram was the top finisher from the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South and Midwest regions with Gerhart second each time. Gerhart won the West region, while Suh captured the Southwest.

Oregon State vs. Oregon

Game-day: 12/3/2009

Game-time: 9:00 pm EST

The only two teams capable of winning the Pac-10, the Oregon State Beavers and the Oregon Ducks, face off this Thursday at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon.

The Ducks have lost only twice this season, to the Stanford Cardinal and the Boise State Broncos. They are fresh off of a fantastic 44 to 41 overtime victory over the Arizona Wildcats, and should be geared up to get into the Rose Bowl. Their top rivals, the Oregon State Beavers, will have something to say about that.

Oregon vs. Oregon State is one of the little known rivalries in college football. Dubbed the Civil War, the game between Oregon and Oregon State is the 7th oldest rivalry game in college football. It was first played in 1894.

The Ducks lead in the series overall 56-46-10 but in Eugene, surprisingly, things have been very close, Oregon is up on Oregon State 25-23-3. That should really tell how close these two teams have been in this game.

Let’s take a look at the BetUS football betting odds in this game.

Oregon State Beavers +9 ½ -110 +300 O 62 -110

Oregon Ducks -9 ½ -110 -370 U 62 -110

Here are a few NCAA football betting trends for this game:

* The Oregon State Beavers are 13 and 3 against the spread in their last 16 games following a bye week.
* The Oregon Ducks are 5 and 0 against the spread in their last 5 games at home.
* The Oregon State Beavers are 4 and 0 against the spread in their last 4 games versus a team with a winning record.
* The Over is 7 and 0 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
* The key in figuring out the best bet in this game is to understand which team will be on this Thursday.

That’s easy, actually. Both teams will be on so to speak. Oregon hasn’t put up less than 40 points in 5 straight games. The Beavers have put up over 40 points in two straight games.

When it comes to the stop game, neither Oregon nor Oregon State is all that great. Oregon’s defense is ranked 28th in college football and gives up, on average, 23 points a game. When facing a team that doesn’t put up a lot of points, the Ducks do okay, keeping UCLA to 10 and Washington State to 6 in their games against those teams this year, but the Ducks also gave up 51 points to Stanford and 41 points to Arizona.

Oregon State, overall, has done much better defensively than Oregon lately allowing 19 to UCLA, 14 to California, 21 to Washington and 10 to Washington State. What it shows is that the Beavers are capable of playing a defensive, well as defensive as possible, game if they need to.

What that means is that betting the total might not be the best wager in this game. What is then?

Oregon State has won four games in a row including a victory over California at California. Not only that, but Oregon State actually beat Stanford this season 38 to 28. Oregon couldn’t get past Stanford.
