    December 26th Bowl Games:
    Traditionally these two games produce some great match ups. Tonight shouldn't be any different.

    Little Caesars Bowl - Pitt vs Bowling Green
    Pitt takes it 30-27 with 4 lead changes through the game. James Conner ends up with 226 yards rushing and some key QB pressure as a DE late in the game. This kid is fun to watch! A feisty game between two schools that don't play very often. Well done Little Caesars on selecting two schools that provided a great game.

    Poinsettia Bowl - Utah State vs Northern Illinois
    If you haven't watched Jordan Lynch yet here's your chance!! Plus Ottawa RedBlack draft pick Conner Williams is with Utah State.

    Utah State brings out their long distance kicker to attempt one from 52. Not even close and it's Northern Illinois ball.

    However the Huskies put the ball on the turf to give the Aggies another chance. Jordan Lynch doesn't fumble often but that was ugly.

    Jordan Lynch will need to convince NFL decision makers that he can do all the other things a QB needs to do. He's a pure leader though and gets results; but that wasn't enough for Dan LeFevour to survive in the NFL. Their loss is the CFL's gain.

    Down to the final minute of the first half with the Huskies working into FG range. It's a 7-6 lead for NIU.

    A fourth down gamble and the Huskies turn the ball over instead of taking the points. Aggies get the ball with 40 seconds to go starting from their 25.

    Utah State intercepts the ball on the first play of the second half and turns it into points. This stout Aggie D is proving that they can take on a top O here tonight. Lynch isn't usually a threat to give the ball away but is having issues with this scheme against him. Well done USU Coaches!

    13-7 in the 3Q.

    Northern Illinois may have the worst special teams of a Top 25 team in recent memory. Kicker missed another FG and has now missed 9 of his last 13 attempts. The punter shanked a 17 yard kick in the first half and thanks to a roll got a good one out in the second. Amazing. They need points but it'll have to be TDs from here out.

    13-7 Utah State with 11 minutes to go in the 4Q

    Love that Flash has managed to go 0 for 8 in the Yahoo Bowl Pick'em game this year. Honestly you could join the league now and still have a good shot to win.
