Today is Humanitarian Day

All college football fans have been waiting for today’s game because it’s the Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl on the famous blue turf in Boise, Idaho. This is a bowl game where you aren’t that good of a team and if you actually accept the invitation you get to play in Idaho in the middle of winter. Today’s game will more than likely be played in a snow storm with a high of 34 and by end of game it will be 27 degrees. This is why they play in the day so it’s a bit warmer for the fans.

When will the NCAA decide that bowl games in snow are worthless and they will not ever have proper fan attendance? Unless of course you are Idaho and this is your first bowl game since the 1998 Humanitarian Bowl.

Idaho is playing a Bowling Green team basically in a home game. The good thing is we will be able to see the best receiver in CFB this year.  Freddie Barnes is about to play his final college game in Wednesday’s Humanitarian Bowl and Barnes has a chance at an NCAA record that’s stood for 20 years. Already with an eye-popping 138 catches this season, Barnes is five grabs shy of breaking the NCAA record for receptions in a single season (142) set by Houston’s Manny Hazard in 1989.

Both teams score well, but look for Idaho to run more as BG gives up almost 200 yds on the ground and 400 total yds per game.

I am betting Idaho +1.5 to cover
