But the biggest edge is that Lotto Annihilator Review for second half wagers, you have the opportunity to watch half the first half, giving you a chance to scout a team's strengths, weaknesses, situations and potential game strategies. Look at Saturday's USC/UCLA game. The total for the contest was roughly 47, but if you watched the first half you saw two rugged defensive teams, with USC holding a 9-7 halftime lead. That was a far cry from a year ago with USC winning 66-19. Both teams in 2005 had super-talented and versatile offenses, but this season both offenses had lost most of their best offensive talents, including their starting quarterbacks. It will come as no surprise Saturday night when Ohio State's Troy Smith name is called as the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner. He'll be the Buckeyes' seventh Heisman winner (tying Notre Dame and USC) and their first since Eddie George won in 1995. However, Archie Griffin won the award twice (in 1974-75), meaning Ohio State will own more Heismans (eight) than any school in college football history. Smith should win the award easily. Ohio State opened as the nation's preseason No. 1 team and never relinquished the No. 1 spot. In fact, the Buckeyes posted the BCS' first perfect ranking (1.000) over the final two BCS polls. Smith established himself as one of this year's favorites for the award, by leading Ohio State on a season-ending seven-game winning streak in 2005. During that span, he completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 246.4 YPG with a 13-2 TD-to-INT ratio. He also averaged 50.7 YPG on the ground (4.9 YPG) and scored six more TDs. Smith finished this season with a completion percentage of 67.0 percent, threw for 2,507 yards and fashioned a brilliant 30-5 TD-to-INT ratio. He made a conscious decision not to run as much this year, so his rushing numbers fell dramatically from 611 yards (4.5 YPC and 11 TDs) in 2005, to 233 yards (3.8 YPC and one TD) this year. However, there's little doubt that Smith was even better this year, than last.
