Why to watch
If scoring turns you on, the Holiday Bowl is sure to satisfy. Texas' offense, which ranks fourth nationally in scoring offense, averaging 42.8 points per game, features a balanced attack led by dual threat freshman QB Vince Young, powerful junior RB Cedric Benson and the nation's most explosive senior wide receiver, Roy Williams. Washington State's offense is explosive in its own right, averaging 30.5 points per game, but is much more one-dimensional and relies heavily on the pitch-and-catch combo of QB Matt Kegel-to-WR Devard Darling.
