Hook 'Em, Horns!
Texas and Ohio State are in the Fiesta Bowl tonight. I'm rooting for Texas, in part because I fell in love with the school on a brief visit in '87, partly because a cousin went there, partly because burnt orange is strangely cool, but mostly for national-championship-chaos reasons I will discuss more tomorrow.
Yahoo has Texas as an 8-point favorite, down from a 10.5 open. Sportsbook.com has the Longhorns minus 8.5 with 77% of the money going UT's way (numbers provided for entertainment purposes, of course).
