Quest for Super Bowl XLVI begins

The Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints are set to clash in Lambeau Field Thursday night. The winners of the past two Super Bowls will look to win again in a match up that features two of the leagues top QBs in Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. This season looked as though it wouldn't begin this offseason due to a lock-out. Now, the race is on for the Lombardi Trophy.

Cats to take on Oklahoma State without Criner

The Arizona Wildcats will take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys in a rematch of the Alamo Bowl this Thursday. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, QB Nick Foles will be without one of the nation's top WR in Juron Criner. The Cowboys will look to rout Arizona in Stillwater as they did in the Alamo Bowl 36-10. Arizona returns with a new look defense and OSU returns most starters on both offense and defense including QB Brandon Weeden and WR Justin Blackmon. A win from the Wildcats could boost their hopes for this season but a loss could send them reeling into the Stanford and Oregon match-ups the following weeks. Expect this game to be a shooting rather than a blow-out as the Cats look for revenge.
