Bowl Game Blowout! Open Thread for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl

 

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl

Boise State Broncos (13-0) vs. TCU Horned Frogs (12-0)
1/4/10 at 8:00 PM EST
Glendale, Arizona

 


Initial Thoughts: I understand the rationale that if these are indeed the third and sixth best teams in America, this is a hell of a matchup. The problem is that a lot of people still don't believe that they are the third and sixth best teams in America and they may have been better served thrashing Iowa and Georgia Tech in separate games. I'm just saying.
Most Awesome Player: Lots of guys to choose from, but it's probably Kellen Moore, Boise State QB (254/392 for 3,325 yards, 39 touchdowns, 3 interceptions)
Most Awesome Sponsor: Let's just give this to Frito-Lay, the makers of Tostitos.

Frito-Lay: Good Fun!
The Line: TCU -7.5
Over/Under: 54.5
Chad Millman's blog says: This game surprised me. I made this game TCU -2.5 because I think Boise's victory over Oregon is more impressive than any victory as far as caliber of opponent that TCU has. My ratings are largely based on margin of victory and quality of opposition and that made me think this game was a shade under a field goal. I think this point spread is way too high.
Accuscore says: TCU 32.4, Boise State 24.9
ESPN says: TCU 24, Boise State 20
Who you should be rooting for: For a competitive game? I'm still crushed after the Eagles' loss.
