New Orleans Bowl Preview

New Orleans BowlLet me start off by apologizing for not providing a preview on last night’s Las Vegas Bowl game between BYU and Oregon. Not only did I slip up and not write a preview, but I also didn’t get up my bet of the day to let all my peeps know BYU was going to cover. All the Christmas parties this week caught up with me so last night it was definitely time to rest.

The New Orleans Bowl pits 7-5 Rice versus 7-5 Troy. These two teams are very evenly matched and both have explosive offenses. Rice rolls into this bowl on a six game winning streak and just a year ago were 1-10. Troy won six of their last seven games and almost beat FSU in Tallahassee earlier this year. All things lead to a very close game with one of these teams pulling out the victory at some point in the fourth quarter. Please stop by later to see who I pick to win the game.

Player to watch: You probably haven’t heard about Jarrett Dillard yet, but remember this name. Dillard is a phenomenal wide receiver for TCU and has caught a touchdown pass in 14 straight games and caught 20 on the year.
