A brief bit of statistics

There have been five major post-season football games at Cardinal University of Phoenix Stadium since it opened. Two Fiesta Bowls, one BCS National Championship, Super Bowl XLII, and yesterday’s NFC Wild Card game.

In all five games, one team was heavily favored (and we know which one it was for the two Fiesta Bowls), and that favored team lost all four games. The 2007 Fiesta Bowl (OU vs. Boise State) was close, and the two NFL games were somewhat close, but the other two were blowouts for the underdog team.

The 2009 Fiesta Bowl is to be played in that stadium tomorrow night. The Texas Longhorns are heavily favored over the Ohio State Buckeyes.

I’m just sayin’.
