Three Presagia Sports customers took home major victories, kicking off the New Year with impressive football wins. The Bowl Championship Series (BCS) marks some of the biggest college football games in the U.S. and three of those games – the Rose Bowl, the Orange Bowl and the title BCS Championship game – had Presagia Sports customers competing for the title.
On January 1, the Stanford Cardinals won the Rose Bowl with a 20-14 win against the Wisconsin Badgers. While it wasn’t a very high scoring game, Stanford took the game in a different kind of way – by blocking Wisconsin from scoring any points in the second half. The 99th edition of the Bowl marked the first Stanford Rose Bowl win since their 1972 victory against the Michigan Wolverines.
Also on January 1, the Florida State Seminoles defeated the Northern Illinois Huskies 31-10 for the Orange Bowl title, their first Bowl game win since 2000, when they defeated Virginia Tech for the national title.
The Alabama Crimson Tide took home a huge victory on January 7, when they won the title BSC Championship game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish with an extraordinary 42-14. For Alabama’s Crimson Tide, this marks their second national title in a row and third national title in four years, all with Nick Saban as the coach, who left the NFL’s Miami Dolphins for an eight year contract with the Crimson Tide.
A big congratulations to all who contributed to these wins!
