Ravel's "Bolero" is one of those pieces of music that, much like the college bowl season, features a long, slow, smoldering buildup before ending in a spectacular burst.
This is a two-part question.
First bowl will be the Pizza Bowl in Detroit. Both the Gophers and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are no strangers to being passed over in their conference pecking order. The Gophers may have earned their spot here the hard way, but the Yellow Jackets should have gone higher in the draft. On top of that, it's Paul Johnson's last game at the helm. Think his triple option will come through in a big way?
How many rushing yards will the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets generate v. Minnesota?
And for the second bowl question, we head to Arroyo Seco, where this all starts and ends. It's an old school Rose Bowl, with the Pacific Coast and CIC champions playing. Washington's defence went to Pullman and put Wazzu's air raid out of business. Ohio State made a previously good defense in Michigan look like a mince pie gone to rot.
How many yards of offense will Ohio State generate v. Washington in the Rose Bowl?
Deadline for Question 1 is Wednesday, December 26 at 4:15 PM CST.
Deadline for Question 2 is New Year's Day, Tuesday, January 1, 2019 at 4:00 PM CST.
Good hunting, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
