DCS National Championship Game
Today is bowl day in the world of College Football, games such as the Outback Bowl, Capitol One Bowl, Tostito's Fiesta Bowl and the Nokia Sugar Bowl are all being played today but the most important game of them all the first annual "Widmer Heffeweizen DCS National Championship Game" took place in my living room this morning. About two weeks I started my quest to crown a real undisputed national champion in Division 1A college football and by all accounts the "DCS National Championship Tournament" was a smashing success.
The Championship game matched the Penn State Nittany Lions against the USC Trojans. Lead by the running of Reggie Bush and the arm of Matt Leinhart USC took an 7-0 lead. The Nittany Lions responded as USC could not stop Penn State Quarterback Michael Robinson in the first half. Robinson confused the USC defense with his arm and his legs, he finished the first half with 200 yards passing two two touchdowns an 36 yards on the ground. Penn State went into halftime leading the trojans 20 to 13.
The second half began with more of the same from the Nittany Lions as Robinson took them down the field on 75 yar touchdown drive to give them a 27-14 lead. USC would respond with adrive of their own capped by 19 yard Reggie Bush touchdown to make it 27-21. Penn State would come right back with another drive capped by Robinson's fourth touchdown pass of the game. Trailing 34 to 21 late in the third USC needed someone to make a big play. On the kickoff following Penn State's touchdown, USC Sophomore Running Back Desmond Reed fielded the kick at the 13 yard line and took it 87 yards for a tochdown making it 34 to 28. Following a Penn State interception USC took the lead on 34 yard touchdown by Reggie Bush. Reggie Bush Bush wasn't done though as he returned two second half punts for touchdowns to give USC 49-34 lead in the fourth quarter. Late in the fourth he added one more rushing touchdown to give USC a 56 to 34 lead. That would be the final score, following the game Bush was named MVP his numbers for the game, 206 rushing and four touchdowns, 22 yards recieving, 188 return yards and two touchdowns for a total of 416 all purpose yards and 6 touchdowns. Congratulations to the Undisputed champions of College Football the USC Trojans.
