Humanitarian Bowl And Holiday Bowl Live Thread

Ndamukong Suh Feasts On His Final Helping Of College QB's Tonight [Bowl Games Live Thread]

12/30/09 in NCAAF   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

There are two bowl games on tonight, and you might be a little more interested in one than the other, but we'll have a live thread for both of them, mostly because there's really not a ton of other things to talk about, aside from how stupid the Colts are, and the Mike Leach firing.

First up is the Humanitarian Bowl, between Bowling Green and Idaho, starting at 4:30 pm on ESPN. This is one of those bowl games that probably don't even need to happen, but whatever... it's happening anyway. 57% of FanIQ users picked the Idaho Vandals to win, but I think I'm leaning towards Bowling Green. For those of you who have been tracking my success in picking NCAA football games, that means Idaho will probably win.

The next (and more interesting) game is the Holiday Bowl, with #20 Arizona and #22 Nebraska essentially fighting to see who finishes the season in the top 25, and who doesn't. The game starts at 8 pm, and you can see it on ESPN. 89% think Nebraska will win, and after watching them nearly beat Texas, I think I'd have to agree. Make sure you don't miss all-world defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh. He eats QB's for breakfast, and this is his last chance to reign destruction on college players before doing it in the NFL.

If you're watching the games, chat it up here all night and as always, enjoy the games!

Very much so Pat. I wasn't expecting the one sided game we had last night. Nebraska truly had the defense. As for Suh, he may not have won the Heisman, however, I see him being taken in the top 5.

Larry try top 1.  The team that passes on him could be in a "You passed on Jordan?!" situation, he's like John Randle in Marcus Stroud's body, scary good.

Right now, it would be almost shocking if Suh wasn't the top pick.

I agree... I think Nebraska fans have a lot to look forward to. That program is definitely improving.

I would like to see the Rams get Suh. After drafting Chris Long last year they could be onto something.

Nobody is probably watching the Humanitarian Bowl but keep an eye on Freddie Barnes at the next level.  150 catches this year, 17 in this bowl game for over 200 yards.  Some team is going to get a steal with him at this years draft

I did watch the game and it was a classic. What a finish!  Even on Smurf Turf, it was great.

This was a team that almost won the all-around best conference in the Pac-10 this season?

Arizona has been absolutely awful tonight.

Suh gets the credit, but this entire Nebraska D is incredibly impressive so far.

I like it and wish it happened more.  You dont get any more money if you win the bowl game so why not go for it.  Great call and a fantastic ending to that bowl game

That kick off may have been even more impressive than all of that, lol. Wow.

I'm glad Suh sold me on himself. I rarely see a good D-Lineman.

HOOK UM'. And go Suh, hopfully if Nebraska dominates tonite it will make Texas look better.

I think St Louis will be very happy with him

Ndamukong Suh, the rich reward for some lucky team's sucksational season.
