First and foremost, I want to wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas because this post is only for the bowl games on Christmas Eve. So far it has been a great bowl season with several close games and there should be many more before it’s all over with. Today there are a couple of games on deck and let’s see how things go with my predictions because my last post got me a 2-3 record, moving my bowl record to 7-3 and my overall record 56-26. My overall winning percentage falls from 70.1% to 68.3%!! Let’s Get Started!!
The first game of the day is a battle between the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders facing the Western Michigan Broncos in the Popeye’s Bahamas Bowl. The Raiders come into this game with a 7-5 record, finishing 2nd in the Eastern division of Conference-USA and on a 4 game winning streak to finish the season. Can they finish the season with a five game winning streak and build momentum for next year? The Broncos also finished with a 7-5 record, finished in a four-way tie in the Western Division of the MAC conference and finished the season with an upset over Toledo. This should be a good game and I think the Broncos will win!!
Broncos Win 45-42
The second game on Christmas Eve is between the San Diego State Aztecs facing the Cincinnati Bearcats in the Hawai’I Bowl. The Aztecs had a phenomenal season lead by RB Donnel Pumphery, who’s been mentioned with the great Marshall Faulk as he attempted to tie his record for the most 100-yard games. With a win, the Aztecs could get to 11 wins on the season. The Bearcats finished the season with a huge win over East Carolina to finish the season as they finished behind Temple and South Florida in the Eastern division of the American Conference. I’m going with the Aztecs to win this one!!
Aztecs Win 34-24
