Okay folks, this is it! It's for all the marbles and the fun gets underway around 8 o'clock. I used the term "running quotes" above because this isn't going to be a specific live-blog (you don't need me telling you what you can see with your own eyes), but I will be updating this spot throughout the night. Feel free to leave your predictions in the comments, and I'll see you for the Championship Game later tonight!
Oh one more thing....your official "Band Shot" count will be at the top of the quotes starting at kickoff. Be sure to let me know if you see either and then....DRINK!

Wow that was terrible. Both Brennaman and Davis spent five minutes debating a fourth down call, and it was still third down. Thank god ESPN has taken this s**t show over.
