Bowl Preview Part II

12/09/2011 8:09 AM ·

Seventy teams played in last year’s 35 bowls with only 8-4 Temple and 6-6 Western Michigan getting left out among bowl-eligible schools. This year’s bowl season again features 35 games and again, just two schools were left out of the mix among bowl-eligible teams. Miami-Florida was 6-6 but had a self-imposed bowl ban, leaving 6-6 Ball State and 7-4 Western Kentucky as the only two schools not going ‘bowling’ among teams... Read more

Boise State coach Chris Petersen unleashed his frustration with the BCS on Monday. His 11-1 Broncos finished No. 7 in the final BCS standings but were left out of all five of the BCS Bowls (national championship game plus the Fiesta, Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls). "Everybody is just very tired of the BCS," Petersen said. "I think that's the bottom line. Everybody is frustrated. Everybody doesn't really know what to do... Read more

More than three weeks before Auburn and Oregon will play in Glendale, Arizona in the BCS national championship game on January 10, 2011, the 2010-11 bowl season kicked off this past Saturday. I'll have much more on the Auburn/Oregon matchup in future Bowl Journals but let me point out that Oregon has never won a national championship and Auburn owns just one. The Tigers began the 1957 season on probation and were bowl... Read more

The current bowl season really 'heated up' this past weekend with five games apiece on Thursday (Dec 31), Friday (Jan 1) and Saturday (Jan 2), before yielding to the NFL's final Sunday of the regular season. The 2009-10 bowl season concludes with a battle of unbeatens in the Fiesta Bowl (13-0 Boise St vs 12-0 TCU) on Monday, Iowa vs Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl, Troy vs Central Michigan in the highly-anticipated GMAC...

Monday's Independence Bowl featured Georgia playing Texas A&M. The game was scoreless until the late second quarter when the Aggies took a 7-0 lead. However, Brandon Boykin returned the ensuing KO 81 yards for a TD, setting a school record with three KO return TDs this year, while tying the SEC single season record. Less than a minute later, Georgia blocked a punt (Bulldogs had two in the game) which set another TD, giving... Read more

The season's first five bowl games all went over the point total with individual games averaging 66.8 PPG and surpassing the total on average by 12.6 points per contest. The Hawaii Bowl was the first game to stay under, as SMU's 45-10 win over Nevada stayed just more than two TDs under the closing total of about 70. Underdogs were 5-1 SU and ATS in the six pre-Christmas bowl games. The bowl season resumed after a Christmas... Read more

They are called minor bowls for a reason. The bowl schedule now features 34 games which means 64 schools are participating. With that many bowl openings, there almost has to be, by very definition, room for some schools which would qualify for the "cash for clunkers" program. Wyoming was surely one of those schools but the 6-6 Cowboys, who had four wins by three points or fewer and hadn't stayed within single digits... Read more
