We have the upper half of our bracket completed now as #5 Penn State - 1983 routed #12 Clemson - 1983, 84% to 16% to advance to the Joe Yukica Bracket final.
So in the Coughlin Final we will have #1 Notre Dame - 1993 vs #9 Notre Dame - 1994 and in the Yukica Final, #4 Texas - 1976 faces #5 Penn State - 1983.
Today is the first of our Ed Chlebek / Dan Henning Semi-Finals, featuring the #3 seed, the greatest comeback win in Boston College football history, the 38-31 win at Legion Field vs Alabama against perhaps the most underrated bowl win in BC history, the 12-7 Aloha Bowl win over #11 Kansas State and Bill Snyder seeded #14. Catch up on these two games at The Ultimate BC Football Game (Old Guy Edition).
Voting on this game ends at 11:55 PM on July 18.
The winner of this battle faces the #6 seed Cotton Bowl victory over Houston who will meet the #11 seed, the upset of the John Elway lead Stanford team in 1980 in the Chlebek/Henning final.
Still looking for feedback on which games from 2000-11 belong in the top 16 of the last 42 years, so please chime in.
