RESULTS - Round of 512

(117) 2005 Ohio State - 30
(396) 2002 Washington State - 19
Troy Smith and Ted Ginn Jr. couldn't be touched as they piled up the yards and touchdowns against Wazzu. And much like the 2002 matchup between these teams, Jason Gesser and the WSU offense never really got going.

(373) 1998 Penn State - 17
(140) 1983 Florida - 20
In a tight contest that featured great linebackers on both squads (LaVar Arrington and Brandon Short for Penn State and Wilber Marshall for Florida), the lone bright spot on offense was Florida QB Wayne Peace. Peace threw for 211 yards and 2 touchdowns. RB Eric McCoo provided the lone highlight for the Penn State offense with this amazing bounce pass to himself.

(245) 2004 California - 34
(268) 2004 Arizona State - 23
In a remath, Cal once again routed Arizona State to advance. J.J. Arrington ran for 187 yards and 2 touchdowns, and Marshawn Lynch added 101 yards and a touchdown. Dirk Koetter's ASU offense never got going because his O-Line couldn't block Cal's solid D-Line (Lorenzo Alexander, Brandon Mebane, Ryan Riddle). QB Ryan Walter was sacked 5 times, which negated the impact of playmakers WR Derek Hagan and TE Zach Miller.

(524) 2006 Boston College - 16
(12) 1989 Notre Dame - 29
Rocket Ismail returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and Tony Rice accounted for 334 yards of total offense as Notre Dame easily got by Matt Ryan and BC.

Bracket Semifinals:
(117) 2005 Ohio State vs (140) 1983 Florida
(12) 1989 Notre Dame vs (245) 2004 California
