Bowl Games SoC
« on: December 15, 2017, 09:59:50 PM »

Mt Union kicks things off with a 12-0 victory in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl. 

A touchdown, a field goal, a safety, an extra point and a shut out. 

13th National Championship since 1993.

Heading to a friend's house later on, for a steak and lobster meal. I'm making a scratch Caesar salad and a mushroom/polenta dish for an appy.

It looks as though the best Bowl Game today will be Boise and Oregon in Vegas.

that would be sweet. 
In reading a preview of that game, it turns out that Scott Frost was the Oregon AC that had to restrain Blount from charging into the stands after he sucker punched the Boise player.

Coaching change + star senior RB sitting out = Boise win
I thought I settled my debts that night on the ride home
But I have still got hell to pay

Boise would've won anyway. 

They've never lost to the perennially overrated Ducks.

Highly doubtful. But Boise State's past history vs the Ducks is 100% irrelevant regarding the outcome of today anyways although it's worth noting this BSU team is a shell of the ones that beat Oregon.

And this Oregon team is a shell of the ones that Boise beat. So that's a push. 

NC A&T won the Celebration bowl. Hbcu NCs. 

Troy won the New Orleans bowl.

These small time western bowls - New Mexico, Las Vegas, defunct Poinsettia - are great appetizers.

Nice to hear Herbstreit doing the Vegas Bowl. Boise St LB Vander Esch dominating the LOS Vs an otherwise absent Ducks team today. Agree with Herbstreit re the Ducks not showing up - if the Duck players made such an effort to voice support for internally promoting Mario Cristobal why not show up and play like you wanted him as your coach?

I definitely want to do a Vegas Bowl someday; Vegas is at its cheapest this time of year, save New Year's Eve. But will wait until that new stadium is built closer to the Strip. I've been to that Sam Boyd Stadium before, where UNLV plays, and it's way out of the way and in the last of its nine rusty lives.

Oregon returns a goal line pick 6 to pull within 10 before the half.
