What to watch for...

With the Holiday Bowl already locked down and the spread on the game being nearly 30 points, it seems like the Big Game is not that big. So here are some things to watch for...

Marshawn vs DeSean
Both are tied for the conference lead in total touchdowns with 13 a piece. This should be a good chance for both to score plenty. Marshawn will probably come out ahead in the TD battle unless Stanford punts to DeSean, then all bets are off.

Levy vs Ayoob
Who will get the call in the fourth quarter of a blowout? Will it be last year's Big Game hero (Levy) or the backup QB (Ayoob)? Isn't that enough to keep you watching till the end?

Bishop vs Mebane vs Follet vs Pimentel
Who will knock TC Ostrander, Stanford's QB, out of the game? I remember watching his play in the 2004 Big Game and get sacked over and over. It got so bad I was hoping Stanfurd would take him out of the game for his own safety. Smart money is on Mebane but Follet can absolutely destroy QB's on blitzes. TC better have his head on a swivel.

There is an article about Ayoob in some Marin paper. It actually puts him in a good light.

you should put it up, ayoob performs well in practice and then freezes up during gametime. i don't trust him.
