Bowl Games Gameday Thread (Part 1): January 2nd, 2009

New, comments

This morning will kick off the first of five more bowl games. The International Bowl will feature The (7-5, 3-5) South Florida Bulls and The (7-5, 5-3) Northern Illinois Huskies. The Bulls finished 6th in the Big east while the Huskies finished 2nd in the MAC - West. Both teams like to run the ball so I can't see a lot of points going up, although it is college football and anything can happen. Below the jump, we will take a look at both teams and their players.
