Poinsettia Bowl Live Thread: Cal vs Utah

Can The Mountain West Give The Pac-10 Another Bowl Beating? [Poinsettia Bowl Live Thread]

The University of California will be without their star RB Jahvid Best, which will be a huge setback in tonight's Poinsettia Bowl against Utah.

69% of FanIQ users picked Utah to win, which would be the second night in a row that a Moutain West team beat a Pac-10 team in a bowl game.

Personally, I think Cal could have pulled it off if Best was coming back, but without him, they'll have a hard time against the Utes.

The game starts at 8:00 pm EST, and can be seen on ESPN. If you're watching, chat it up with us here, and as always, enjoy the game!

Utah has the current Bowl Winning streak in the Nation with 9 straight Bowl wins.... Amazing that this team doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

I think that what it REALLY means is that the team isn't getting the bowl games they deserve. Notre Dame had a pretty long bowl losing streak, because they were continuously put in bowls they didn't deserve. Utah, on the other hand, gets snubbed almost every year, and consistently gets placed in a lesser bowl game than they deserve.
