College Bowl Season

College bowl games

This morning it really felt like the sun was shining a little brighter and it seemed as if I had a little extra skip in my step. It took me until around lunch time to figure out why this was the case. Then I realized at lunch that today starts the college bowl season and everyday from here until early January is jam packed with college football. The first game of the bowl season is the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl hosting TCU vs. Northern Illinois.(what a mouthful) Northern Illinois has a running back named Garrett Wolfe who is the nation’s leading rusher at 158 yards per game. The problem is the Horned Frogs haven’t allowed a 100-yard rusher in their last 19 games and bolster the #4 rushing defense in the nation. The question will be whether Northern Illinois can initiate a passing game that could then hopefully allow for the running game to open up. If this doesn’t happen then you can forget Northern Illinois having a chance to win. Stay tuned to SportsUnderground in the coming days and weeks for more summaries of the bowl games.
