CHAMPS SPORTS BOWL
Dec. 28, 5 p.m. (ESPN)
Boston College (10-3) vs. Michigan State (7-5)
Eagles v Spartans
A powerful majestic bird versus greek warriors.
I'll go with the Spartans
Dec. 28, 8 p.m. (NFL Network)
TCU (7-5) vs. Houston (8-4)
Horned Frogs v Cougars
Two Texas teams playing in Houston - should be a rip roaring time. The Horned Frog, as we have learned, over the years, is a frog like (not really a frog) lizard that, when attacked, shoots a sanguinesque substance from it's eyes - that's pretty fierce.
A Cougar, on the other hand (or paw, if you will) is a wild cat.
Here kitty kitty - Cougars
Dec. 28, 8:30 p.m. (ESPN)
Maryland (6-6) vs. Oregon State (8-4)
Terrapins v Beavers
A turtle and a beaver. Do you think that OSU will be able to gnaw through UM's shell? I do.
MEINEKE CAR CARE BOWL
Dec. 29, 1 p.m. (ESPN)
UConn (9-3) vs. Wake Forest (8-4)
Huskies v Demon deacons
A pretty fluffy dog and a passionate preacher.
Dec. 29, 4:30 p.m. (ESPN)
Mississippi State (7-5) vs. UCF (10-3)
Bulldogs vs Golden knights
I kinda like both of these teams - they're scrappy and fun to watch it should be a fun game. But I'll choose the Knights to win.
Dec. 29, 8 p.m. (ESPN)
Penn State (8-4) vs. Texas A&M (7-5)
Nittany Lions v Aggies
I couldn't really get any confirmation from human and/or online sources as to just what is the t a&m mascot - a collie? a agriculturally minded military man? the 12th man? It really doesn't matter - Penn State is going to win.
Dec. 30, 8 p.m. (ESPN)
Colorado (6-6) vs. Alabama (6-6)
Buffalo v Crimson Tide
ugh. Both of these teams have had a rough year(s) - bad press and bad karma abound. Both had some quality wins and some, shall we say "catastrophic" losses. I see the Buffalo winning this one.
