Bowl Game Blowout! Open Thread for the FedEx Orange Bowl

FedEx Orange Bowl


Iowa Hawkeyes (10-2) vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (11-2)

1/5/10 at 8:00 PM EST
Miami, Florida


Initial Thoughts: I'd rather be at Bucks/Nets.
Most Awesome Player: Jonathan Dwyer, Georgia Tech RB (221 attempts for 1,346 yards and 14 touchdowns)
Most Awesome SponsorPlaymaker. Because Michael Irvin is more than just the guy who would rather have one perfect season than three Super Bowl rings.

The Line: Georgia Tech -4
Over/Under: 50.5
Chad Millman's blog says: Any game involving Georgia Tech is a difficult puzzle to figure out because of its offense. Right now Georgia Tech is getting all the love and Iowa is being discounted as a team that doesn't deserve a BCS bowl, but I do like Iowa at this number. It is getting its quarterback back from injury, which I think will help, and I think the number is a bit inflated because it is a Big Ten team. I made this game three.
Accuscore says: Georgia Tech 27.3, Iowa 26.3
ESPN says: Iowa 28, Georgia Tech 24
Who you should be rooting for: The triple option!
