December 27 Bowl Games Open Thread

Fooch's Note: It's Emerald Bowl time.  Don't forget to get your predictions in for tomorrow and Monday.


We've got 3 bowl games going on today, including the California Golden Bears.  I just thought to put this up so if you're watching the games today, feel free to throw out your thoughts about the youngsters on the field today

West Virginia's all-everything QB Pat White just launched a beautiful 44 yard touchdown pass to Alric Arnett in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.  White is an option QB with an impressive arm.  He looks like he could be a much more athletic version of Michael Robinson (just to make a comparison).  Does anybody think he can make it as a QB in the NFL?  He's got a solid arm and great athleticism, but he seems like he might end up like Tim Tebow, being converted to some other position.  We'll see.

Oh and if you're not watching it, I highly recommend flipping on the Meineke Car Care Bowl.  It's sitting at 14-14 with almost 5 minutes left in the first quarter.  UNC just ran an end around with WR T.J. Yates who then threw a nice little pass to a wide open Hakeem Nicks.  Nicks nicely broke a couple tackles and currently has 139 yards on 2 touchdown receptions.  Not too shabby.  Fooch's Note: Just before posting this West Virginia scored again with 2:35 to go in the first quarter and it's 21-14.  Ridiculous.

So, enjoy your day of college football.  All games are on ESPN, running consecutively in the following order.  The links are to the SB Nation blog for the respective team.

Meineke Car Care Bowl: West Virginia vs. North Carolina

Champs Sports Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Florida State

Emerald Bowl: Miami, Fl vs. California

I'm definitely watching the Emerald Bowl and I'm guessing a few of you out there might actually be going to the game.  If so, have fun.  And don't forget to get your Week 17 predictions in before tomorrow morning.
