Well it went to overtime on Saturday but it was still a loss.
The AP writes:
The Sooners (5-0) gave Michigan State (3-3) its third loss in 12 days, all against ranked teams and dropped the Spartans to their worst start since 1995-96, Izzo's first season as head coach.In happier news, the Michigan State football team will play Nebraska in the Alamo bowl on December 29 in San Antonio, Texas. The AP's write-up includes this tidbit:
The Spartans, led by quarterback Jeff Smoker, have won their last two postseason games against Florida in the Citrus Bowl four years ago and against Fresno State in Silicon Valley Bowl in 2001.Funny how Smoker didn't play in the team that went to the Citrus Bowl.
In a December 2 story, the BBC writes:
A flint object with a striking likeness to a human face may be one of the best examples of art by Neanderthal man ever found, the journal Antiquity reports.***
At the first dinner in the humble farmhouse, Nicole asks the Ledings if they hang out at Wal-Mart for fun. Paris asks, "What is Wal-Mart?"This seems to indicate that Paris Hilton is aware she plays a "Paris Hilton" character that is different from who she actually is.
