  1. Oregon-Michigan State laden with meaning

    Ted Miller

    There will be no "real" Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, 2015. The "real" Rose Bowl, whose purity previously had been diluted by the BCS, is a casualty of the College Football Playoff this season. While that will make many of us old fogies wince, the only constr...

  5. Season wrap: Oregon

    Ted Miller

    Oregon was ranked No. 3 before the season, therefore an obvious national title contender. Oregon was 8-0 and ranked No. 3 in the BCS standings in Week 11, and the general consensus was that if the Ducks won out, their Pac-12-fueled strength-of-schedu...

  12. Heisman shaft for Pac-12

    Ted Miller

  16. BCS: Stanford is top two-loss team

    Ted Miller
