Justin Blackmon ascends to glory, Puddles meets roses for the first time in 95 years, and LOL, no, of course Penn State doesn't have a football coach yet.

The Hurry Up runs weekdays at SBNation.com's college football news hub.

Games

The highest-scoring Rose Bowl ever -- are you appeased, fans of championship-caliber-albeit-non-SEC schools? Probably not at all. Oregon fans are celebrating the end of a Roseless near-century, along with sharing some historical fun facts about the occurrence:

  • The last time Oregon won the Rose Bowl, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was the #1 movie in America.

Elsewhere, having a hard time figuring out whether Oklahoma State fans are happy about their Fiesta Bowl win or not (though let's remember what a big deal it's been for Stanford to rise this high as well):

Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes Go Pokes ...

Elsewhere still, the Capital One came down to Mark Richt's love of the field goal (and Michigan State fans have also gone all WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO), South Carolina overcame Alshon Jeffery's ejection to down Nebraska, Case Keenum goes out with 533 yards (and Penn State just goes out), and ugh the Gator Bowl.

Up next: the Sugar Bowl. Meet Virginia Tech blog Gobbler Country and Michigan blog Maize N Brew.

Penn State Coach Watch: The Grey Lady urges patience. Could today be the day, though?

Washington replaces Alamo'd defensive coordinator Nick Holt with Tennessee's Justin Wilcox.

Meet Notre Dame's new offensive coordinator: Chuck Martin.

Tennessee's probably not gonna change its mind on letting DeAnthony Arnett transfer to a BCS-level program near his ailing father.

* Pretty much definitely leaving us.

Recruiting

Is Tennessee's kicker breaking news of Randy Shannon replacing Wilcox?

Casual Hoya@CasualHoya What could possibly go wrong? RT@bomani_jones: ummm, ok. RT@YahooForde: Stan-ND in China could happen in '13.
