The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl
Marshall Thundering Herd (6-6) vs. Ohio Bobcats (9-4)
12/26/09 at 1:00 PM
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 Sponsor: Accident 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.

Initial Thoughts: I think I'll go see Avatar this weekend. During this game.

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!

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?

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!
