2021-22 Bowl games

The Pac-12 is in some great matchups and I hope the league can make a strong statement, culminating of course in the Granddaddy of 'em all.

Good read here, ranking all the bowls from best to worst. Check out #3, 7 and 13.

3. Rose Bowl: Ohio State (10-2) vs. Utah (10-3)
Utah is a scary team at the moment. The Utes have won six straight games and dominated Oregon twice in that timeframe. Ohio State, meanwhile, has the best trio of wide receivers in the country. Utah’s ferociousness up front will be a challenge for Ohio State’s offensive line. The Buckeyes couldn’t handle Aidan Hutchinson and Michigan. Will they be able to stop the Utes?

Now here’s a bowl to see, :rofl:

32. Duke’s Mayo Bowl: North Carolina (6-6) vs. South Carolina (6-6)

UNC started the year ranked No. 10 in the AP poll but went just 6-6. The Tar Heels have one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Sam Howell, but that defense hasn’t stopped anybody. South Carolina is in its first season under Shane Beamer and exceeded expectations to get to a postseason game.


#29 out of 32 bowl games…OUCH!

29. Independence Bowl: BYU (10-2) vs. UAB (8-4)

No offense to UAB, but we were hoping to see BYU play UTSA in this one. The Cougars ended the season in the top 15 of the College Football Playoff rankings and are in this game via an agreement with the Independence Bowl before moving to the Big 12. While UAB nearly handed UTSA its first loss of the season, this is a team that also lost to Liberty and Rice. The Cougars are going to be big favorites.


Are there only 6 teams bowl eligible? That’s wild.

Yeah it worked out well that the 7th bowl tie-in (San Francisco, f/k/a Redbox) was cancelled again this year.

Yeah. :grimacing: All 6 teams in the MAC West were bowl eligible. Different conference and strength, but still. PAC12 really did not pick up the needed pre-conference wins and then beat each other up.

Wazzu vs. Miami in the Sun Bowl is a rematch of 2015. I hope it’s another massive blizzard where half the country learns, once again, that yes it snows in El Paso-Juarez.


El Paso gets cold.

Ask Lane Kiffin. :wink:
