Southern Miss Golden Eagles vs. Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders
12/20/09 at 8:30 PM
New Orleans, Louisiana
Initial Thoughts: Oh no! The Red Raiders just blue themselves!Most Awesome Player: DeAndre Brown, Southern Miss WR (67 receptions for 1117 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2008, 43 receptions for 720 yards and 7 touchdowns, one horrifically broken leg in last year's New Orleans Bowl)
Let's take another look at that, eh?
Most Awesome Sponsor: R+L Carriers. At first I thought they would be more related to aircraft carriers than mail carriers, but oh well. I don't really see this bowl sponsorship lifting them to the same level as UPS and FedEx, but you never know.
ESPN says: Middle Tennessee State 34, Southern Miss 31
Who you should be rooting for: Middle Tennessee so they can raise their profile to the point that they reach a bowl game against the Red Raiders. So we can then see Al Davis draft the winning QB to lead the Oakland Raiders.
