Bowl Game Blowout! Open Thread for 12/26/09

 

The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl

12/26/09 at 1:00 PM
Detroit, Michigan

Initial Thoughts: That pre-game party looks promising.
Most Awesome Player: Theo Scott, Ohio QB (185/318 for 2,258 yards, 19 touchdowns, 10 interceptions)
Most Awesome SponsorAccident Fund.  No, seriously, they have a sponsor called Accident Fund.

The Line: Ohio -3
Accuscore says: Ohio 26.6, Marshall 21.9
ESPN says: Ohio 27, Marshall 20
Who you should be rooting for: I really don't care about this game at all.  I'm going with Ohio because I picked them in the Bowl Pick'em, so I suppose that's as good a reason as any.

 

 

The Meineke Car Care Bowl

 


Pittsburgh Panthers (9-3) vs. North Carolina Tar Heels (8-4)
12/26/09 at 4:30 PM
Charlotte, North Carolina

Initial Thoughts: I think I'll go see Avatar this weekend.  During this game.
Most Awesome Player: Dion Lewis, Pittsburgh RB (297 rushing attempts for 1,640 yards and 16 touchdowns; 24 receptions for 190 yards and one touchdown)
Most Awesome Sponsor: Hey, maybe I should go bowling instead.  At Strike City Charlotte!  Notable: Their website is completely useless and provides zero information about their business.  Great design there.
The Line: Pittsburgh -2.5
Accuscore says: Pittsburgh 25.8, North Carolina 20.7
ESPN says: North Carolina 23, Pittsburgh 21
Who you should be rooting for: Pittsburgh.  Because Dave Wannstedt's mustache rules!

 

 


The Emerald Bowl

USC Trojans (8-4) vs. Boston College Eagles (8-4)
12/26/09 at 8:00 PM
San Francisco, California

Initial Thoughts: I miss those Emerald Nuts commercials.
Most Awesome Player: Taylor Mays?  Damian Williams?  Joe McKnight?  DC and Paragon, help me out here.  Who hasn't been disappointing for USC this year?
Most Awesome Sponsor: I'm told MoMo's is kinda cool.

 

The Line: USC - 7
Accuscore says: USC 26.4, Boston College 18.2
ESPN says: USC 35, Boston College 24
Who you should be rooting for: USC, if only because I am completely apathetic towards Boston College.  And Paragon and DC are cool!
