Duck Soup Bowl 07 #1

So, your faithful football fan Sparky Duck is back again this year with another preview of the upcoming bowl games for 2007. Now, I hate the entire BCS system, its imperfect and its all about a money grab for some of the big conferences, but that does not mean I am going to take it out on the football games. But, there is no way I am going to be able to cover all of the damn games, too many games, too little time.

The bowl season kicked off with the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl in well San Diego, with Utah defeating Navy. I totally blinked out and missed it. Last Night was the New Orleans Bowl, with an amazing win for Florida Atlantic University, there first win ever in a Bowl game. Football is obviously king in Florida, unless of course you are a Miami Dolphin fan.

There were/are three games today, the Papa Johns Bowl, The New Mexico Bowl and the Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl. I do not mind that I missed the Papa Johns game, though it was Jeff Bower, the coach of So. Mississippi, which makes it a tad interesting. The New Mexico bowl pit, surprise New Mexico, against Nevada. High scoring game that only the Mountain Time zone would care about. And finally, its the Las Vegas Bowl, sponsored by Pioneer, with UCLA facing BYU. Another interim coach here for UCLA after Karl Dorrell was fired at the end of the year. And again, another game that you really need to be a football fan to watch. I may check it out, maybe.

Of course, who doesn't want another glimpse of some UCLA Cheerleaders?




Predictions

Nevada over New Mexico 44-28
BYU thumps UCLA 35-10

Did you have to wait out the Duke B Ball game for the Utah Navy one? Me and my Gramps did. Stupid ESPN. I quote Gramps, "I am on hospice I could go any time, bring on my bowl game!"
