As I'm sure many in the US experienced, my first day consisted of waking up to temperatures well below zero and wind chills in the -20s. Luckily, I didn't have to go outside, but I did anyways... for a very short time.
The rest of the day consisted of watching New Year's Six Bowls. First up was Auburn vs UCF in the Peach Bowl. I was pulling for UCF because of their head coach Scott Frost. Unfortunately, he is headed to Nebraska next year (us KSU fans don't want Nebraska to have much success after deciding to leave the Big XII. It was a very entertaining football game. In the end, UCF pulled off the upset, winning 34 - 27.
Next up was the game I was the most pumped for... Oklahoma (where I plan on going to school) vs Georgia in the Rose Bowl, or, the Grand Daddy of 'em all! These two teams had never met before in history. That's just insane! The Sooners got off to a fast start, and led 31 - 14 just before the half. The game then consisted of back and forth swings of momentum. Unfortunately, the Sooners fell on the wrong side of that momentum in double overtime, with their field goal getting blocked, and Georgia going on to score a TD.
Finally, Alabama and Clemson faced each other for the third time in three years. This was the least entertaining game out of the bunch, as Alabama pretty much dominated from the start. It ended with a score of 24 - 6.
Overall only 1 out of the 3 teams I was rooting for one... And the National Championship will consist of two SEC teams... not particularly interesting for me to watch. Of course, I still will, and it's going to be very sad having to say goodbye to College Football once again for several months it's my favorite sport to watch, by far).
By the end of the day I was so tired I fell right asleep.
