Colts stun the Texans on TNF, 19-16

Everyone wants to win, right? Even if you're willing to pass up a first overall draft pick? Dan Orlovsky had some late game heroics as he beat his former team on Thursday nights with a TD pass to Reggie Wayne with :19 left, giving the Colts their second win of the season... All I can say is Orlovsky is a selfish dude. So what if you have a personal vendetta against a team that released you last year, maybe it's cause you aren't that good! So if you can help out the Colts by losing out and be satisfied by being Lucks back-up when he leads the Colts to glory,that sounds like a pretty good deal! Orlovsky has seriously put his teams position with the first pick in jeopardy, but maybe a team will be impressed by his 244 yards and 1 TD to give him a third spot on their depth chart.

Boise State routs ASU for the Las Vegas Bowl, 56-24

Kellen Moore capped off his stellar career at Boise St. with a bang, but yet again, against an inferior opponent. His 50th win is the most for any QBs career in college football as he passed for 292 yards, however his RB Doug Martin won MVP. The Sun Devils could simply not stop the bleeding from their regular season as they let up big play after big play, including a Doug Martin opening kick-off return TD. By letting up a bunch of TDs to the Broncos, Brock Osweiler saw plenty of time on the field and put up good numbers with the thanks to his top wide receiver, Gerell Robinson. This will probably be the last we see of Boise in the Las Vegas Bowl since they're moving to the wide-spread Big East next year.

Cats maul Bryant to end non-conference play, 100-60

The Wildcats concluded non-conference play with a big win against the Bryant Bulldogs at the McKale center for a 9-4 record. Five wildcats finished in double-figures, including Brendan Lavender who went 6-8 from three-point range for 18 points. All the Cats on the roster saw some playing time against the Bulldogs. Showing offensive muscle like the Cats did last night was extremely important since conference play starts on New Years' Eve against the Sun Devils.
