Cal beats ASU in Tempe, 47-38, ASU fails to make the PAC 12 championship game

Sofele, Anderson, and Maynard stomped the ASU defense and Dennis Erickson's last game in Tempe. Earlier today, Colorado upset Utah to eliminate ASU from the PAC 12 championship game race as UCLA will make the visit to Eugene. ASU had nothing to play for except the difference betweenthe Las Vegas Bowl and the Kraft Fight the Hunger Bowl and their pride on Senior night. They had no pride as they committed 11 penalties for 121 yards including a few personal fouls from Vontaze Burfict. ASU wrapped up their season with four losses to poorer teams and Erickson will definitely be dismissed after a promising start and an awful end.

Canucks blank the Coyotes, 5-0

Maybe the Yotes ate too many turkeys on Thanksgiving cause they laid an egg and the Canucks ripped them apart. Out-shot and routed, the crowd at Arena didn't seem to mind since half of the folks in attendance were Canucks themselves. Mike Smith was overwhelmed by the peppering of shots by the Canucks offense while Cory Schnieder had a quite night and an easy shut-out.

LSU is No. 1

LSU went into Death Valley ready for an upstart and upset-minded No. 3 Arkansas team. Many analysts were preparing themselves for BCS tumult, but Les Miles prepared his team to take down Petrino's team. Arkansas kept pace with LSU in the first half, but Tyler Wilson was rattled all day and the LSU run offense ran away with the game. LSU has two more games (likely in domes) since they'll play for the SEC championship game against the Georgia Bulldogs. If the Tigers can handle the Dawgs, LSU will play for the BCS title in New Orleans.
