Throughout this bowl season, tBBC’s team looks at all the bowls to give you enough info to convince your family it’s worth watching. Enjoy!
The Basics: 5:30 PM ET on ESPN, from Boise Idaho. Ohio (9-4, 6-2 MAC) and Utah State (7-5, 5-2 MWC.
Ohio Bobcats- Frank Solich’s team made it all the way to the MAC championship as the East representative, and fell apart late to drop a heart breaker to Northern Illinois. They’re 39th in the nation in passing yardage, led by QB Tyler Tettleton’s 3100 yards and WR LaVon Brazill’s 1100 yards receiving.
Utah State Aggies – Rushing attack led by Robert Turbin’s 1400 yards is sixth in the nation. Took the defending national champs to the wire in the season opener, and destroyed Wyoming 63-19 early in MWC play.
Fun Facts- The Buckeyes have never played in this game, nor played Utah State (home of impressive gender role research). Brady Hoke believes he’s undefeated against the Bobcats (he’s wrong); Brandon Hanning is still a punk.
