Texas beat Tech, what, 51-21
If that doesn't justify the fact that Texas should be and is in a BCS bowl over Cal, I don't know what would.
Numbers, numbers, numb.
What was the score when the mighty Longhorns played those juggarnaughts Arkansas and Mizzu? Eeking out wins against weak opponants doesn't exactly impress.
Blow outs in bowl games are the most over-rated stats to use because of the amount of rest between games and the fact that both teams are pretty good just to be there. Early momentum, or comming out flat, can be harder to overcome because of the layoff. Players just aren't as sharp and are less likely to recover from the early flow of a game.
