Where we endeavor to get you as pumped as possible for football games that you couldn't pay me to watch in person.
Initial Thoughts: What's a better indicator that we have too many bowls at this point: two teams that have no national profile playing in New Mexico, or a bowl being sponsored by a county credit union?
Most Awesome Player: Ryan Mathews, Fresno State RB (245 attempts for 1,664 yards and 17 touchdowns)
Most Awesome Sponsor: The U.S. New Mexico Federal Credit Union. We have too many bowls at this point.
Accuscore says: Fresno State 35.3, Wyoming 22.8
ESPN says: Fresno State 38, Wyoming 24
Who you should be rooting for: Fresno State. So Tedford's in a good mood.
Initial Thoughts: I'm really quite embarrassed that my grad school alma mater only managed a 8-4 record against this schedule:
|9/07||Cincinnati||0-1 (0-1)||L 47-15|
|9/12||Howard||1-1 (0-1)||W 45-7|
|9/19||FIU||2-1 (0-1)||W 23-15|
|9/26||@ Maryland||3-1 (0-1)||W 34-13|
|10/10||Texas Southern||4-1 (0-1)||W 42-0|
|10/16||Pittsburgh||4-2 (0-2)||L 24-17|
|10/23||@ Army||5-2 (0-2)||W 27-10|
|10/31||@ Connecticut||6-2 (1-2)||W 28-24|
|11/12||No. 24 South Florida||7-2 (2-2)||W 31-0|
|11/21||@ Syracuse||7-3 (2-3)||L 31-13|
|11/27||@ Louisville||8-3 (3-3)||W 34-14|
|12/05||No. 23 West Virginia||8-4 (3-4)||L 24-21|
Realistically, Syracuse was the team's only inexplicable loss. But man, that was truly inexplicable.
Most Awesome Player: Anthony Davis, Rutgers LT - though I'd expect to see a healthy dose of Mohamed Sanu out of the wildcat formation since the team can't run out of standard formations.
Most Awesome Sponsor: Beef O'Brady's!
Accuscore says: Rutgers 23.8, UCF 21.8
ESPN says: Rutgers 27, UCF 17
Who you should be rooting for: Rutgers. If not for me, then because the Scarlet Knights were the last team that Cal defeated during the Holmoecaust.
