Bowl Previews – Armed Forces, Sun, Texas, Insight, Chick-Fil-A

There are five games today, so we’ll go through them quickly: Armed Forces Bowl Houston (-4.5) vs. Air Force 12 pm ET I can’t wait to see what happens with this one. Houston throws and throws and throws again. Case Keenum is exceptionally good at it, and few things in college football are more fun […]

Humanitarian Bowl and Holiday Bowl

I didn’t get a chance to write about the Humanitarian Bowl before it started, but as I write this it is nearing the end of the third quarter, and Bowling Green has just scored a touchdown to close the gap to Idaho to 28-21. This game is exactly why I love bowl season. I haven’t […]

Mike Leach, and EagleBank and Champs Sports Bowl Previews

Before we get into the bowl previews, I just want to look at one issue with the Mike Leach situation. I’m not going to try to decode whether he did what he is alleged to do, whether it is as bad as it seems, or what punishment he should face. I justwant to ask one […]

The Colts, and the Independence Bowl

Before we take a look at tonight’s bowl game I want to touch on the controversy surrounding what the Colts did yesterday against the Jets. If you’ve been under a rock then you missed that Indy got out to a 15-10 lead and then pulled Peyton Manning and the rest of the starters. They didn’t […]

Merry Christmas!

We’ll be back with more Bowl game goodness on December 28th. In the mean time, relax, have a great holiday, don’t eat too much turkey (unless you want to), and enjoy the season. All the best to you and your families. Happy Holidays!

Bowl Previews – Little Caesars, Meineke Car Care, Emerald, Music City

Little Caesars Bowl Ohio (-3) vs. Marshall Saturday, December 26, 1 pm ET If you are a big believer that motivation is a key factor in bowl games then you won’t have any problems picking a side in this one. Ohio hasn’t won 10 games since 1968, but they have the chance to do it […]

Bowl Previews – Las Vegas, Poinsettia, Hawaii

There are 31 bowl games left to play, and over the next several days we are going to look at each of them. Today we’ll begin by looking at three games, starting with tonight’s potentially brilliant Las Vegas Bowl. Las Vegas Bowl Oregon State (-3) vs. BYU Tuesday, December 22, 8 pm ET This matchup […]

Monday Notes

I love the craziness of kickers in the NFL. A couple of weeks ago Shaun Suisham was the bum in Washington when he missed a kick that would have let the Redskins beat the Saints. He was cut immediately after the game. This week Dallas’ Nick Folk missed a 24 yard field goal that would […]

New Orleans Bowl Preview

There is just one bowl game on tap for today, and it’s far from the best one of the season. It’s still worth a  look, though: New Orleans Bowl Middle Tennessee State (+3.5) vs. Southern Mississippi 8:00 pm ET As Brett Favre toils in the Sunday Night game for the Vikings, his alma mater will […]

And So It Begins

The three weeks of brilliance that is the bowl season gets underway this afternoon with the first of 34 games. There aren’t that many games that look like they could be massive blowouts, but the very first game out of the gate – the New Mexico Bowl between Fresno State and Wyoming certainly does. Here’s […]
