Emerald Bowl Was Jewel of a Game

Wednesday night's Emerald Bowl between UCLA and Florida State was arguably the most entertaining postseason game to date. Our friends at Image of Sport were at AT&T Park in San Francisco (top) and sent us several outstanding images. Center Robert Chan and his Bruin linemates get ready to go toe-to-toe with the Seminoles. Florida State's Lorenzo Booker was named offensive MVP rushing for 91 yards, catching five passes for 117 more and scoring two touchdowns, much to the pleasure of coach Bobby Bowden (below). ...
... Jj Thacker and Byron J of Seminole County performed at halftime. Thacker is the sister of Florida State defensive tackle Budd Thacker. Quarterback Drew Weatherford had some rough moments (below), but recovered to lead the Seminoles to the 44-27 victory. ...
... UCLA's cheerleaders toughed it out in windy conditions, and Myron Rolle (below) was smiling after his interception in the final minute. Rolle, you may recall, received a text message on his cell phone last January from Florida Governor Jeb Bush during his recruitment by the Seminoles. Image of Sport, a sports photography wire service and digital archive designed to meet the demands of daily newspapers and editorial publications, has several other images from the game. You can view them by clicking here. ... ... A reminder that if you are headed to a postseason game and would like to share an image or two, we'd love to hear from you.

UCLA's juggler, towel waver and Dewayne "Greatest Defensive Coordinator in the History of UCLA Football" Walker weren't enough for the Seminoles. UCLA is 7-6. SC wins the PAC-10 and is headed to the Rose Bowl. Order is restored to the universe.
