RESULTS - Round of 512

(105) 1994 Alabama - 19
(408) 2005 Boston College - 17
Boston College gave Alabama all they could handle, thanks in large part to all purpose threat Will Blackmon and a talented defense. Blackmon caught a 55-yard touchdown pass and returned a kick 93 yards for a touchdown, but sophomore quarterback Matt Ryan threw three interceptions in an inefficient performance. Mathias Kiwanuka, Brian Toal and company helped hold Tide running back Sherman Williams to just 55 yards rushing on 22 carries, but quarterback Jay Barker stepped up and made the big throws when he needed to.

(361) 1994 Michigan - 19
(152) 1979 Oklahoma - 28
Oklahoma's defense, led by All American linebacker George Cumby, played a stellar game against a very good Michigan offense. Defensive back Basil Banks exceeded expectations by blanketing Amani Toomer, a player much bigger than Banks that many thought would give the Wolverines an edge in a potential upset. On the other side of the ball, Michigan had no answer for Billy Sims.

(233) 1987 UCLA - 22
(280) 2005 Alabama - 18
On the opening drive of the game, Alabama receiver made one of the best catches you will ever see for a touchdown, giving the Tide all the momentum. But on the next drive he suffered a broken leg and never returned to the game. From there UCLA running back Gaston Green took over, milking the clock against a good Alabama defense.

(489) 1979 Temple - 21
(24) 1996 Florida - 41
The ride is over for Wayne Hardin's 1979 Temple squad. Steve Spurrier made sure his Gators put the Owls away early, as Danny Wuerffel and the offense scored touchdowns on their first four possessions in building a 28-7 halftime lead.
