Here is a quick rundown of the bowl matchups for today:
2:30 East Carolina (6-6) Vs Maryland (8-4) in the Military Bowl – Such a marquee matchup should pull a couple hundred viewers away from General Hospital.
Half Assed Prediction – Pirates are notoriously scared of Turtles, and I don’t argue with nature…MARYLAND 27 ECU 13
6:00 Illinois (6-6) Vs Baylor (7-5) in the Texas Bowl – How about instead of just two mediocre teams who managed 6 and 7 wins respectively, we fill the stadium with trap doors, each containing tigers or alligators that pop up at random times to snatch a leg? I would definitely watch that.
Half Assed Prediction – Since the NCAA is clearly too scared to run with my trap door idea, I predict that people will be watching Seinfeld or Friends reruns instead of tuning in to what will turn out to be an entertaining game…ILLINOIS 31 BAYLOR 30
9:15 14 Oklahoma State (10-2) Vs Arizona (7-5) in the Alamo Bowl – Tune in a 915 folks, I hear Pee Wee Herman will be riding his bike out from the Alamo Bowl’s basement to perform the coin toss. If that wasn’t enough to wet your whistle…Wednesday’s best matchup features Big 12 player of the year Justin Blackmon, who is set to break Larry Fitzgerald’s sophomore receiving record, and the rest of the top ranked Cowboy offense against and Arizona team that was ranked 9th early in the season.
Half Assed Prediction – OKLAHOMA STATE 41 ARIZONA 31
