Suns rip the Trailblazers, 102-77

I'm not expecting a lot from the Suns this year, but it's great to see some vintage Phoenix basketball led by Steve Nash. Nash was perfect on ESPN on Friday night as he racked up 17 points and 9 assists. The suns had fresher legs and a more potent offense against the surprising Portland squad, but a tight schedule this year with too many back-to-back games could've been the difference as the Suns hit 100 points the first time this season as they climb to 3-4.

Arkansas tops Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl,

Kansas State has had a surprise season, but they were outmanned and outmatched against the Razorbacks. Collin Klein could never establish himself as a running QB, so once they got in a hole against Tyler Wilson's Arkansas offense, KSU had to throw. Kansas State fell in a 19-0 hole early on, but Klein led the Wildcats back to within three. However, the Razorbacks would put KSU away and walk away with the Cotton Bowl.
