New Year's Day bowl games: TV schedule, game time, live streams for Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl

New, comments

Niners Nation's Jake Narayan has a look at the Rose Bowl and AllState Sugar Bowl, providing draft prospects for each team as well.

We are back for the last games of the day. In the Rose Bowl we have Iowa and Stanford squaring off. In the Sugar Bowl, we have the intriguing matchup of Ole Miss and Oklahoma State going head-to-head. Tomorrow will be the final day of bowl games before the National Championship, so tune back in.

Rose Bowl - Stanford vs. Iowa

Game time: 2:00 p.m.
Channel: ESPN
Live stream: WatchESPN

The Cardinal arrive at the Grandaddy of Them All for the third time in four postseasons. Stanford concluded the 2015 season with a Pac-12 Championship win over USC in Levi's Stadium, the new home to the 49ers. They totaled a final record of 11-2, their fifth 11-win season in the past 6 years. Two costly losses (Northwestern and Oregon) kept Stanford out of the College Football Playoff, although many believed they still deserved a shot. Through the past seasons, head coach David Shaw has been criticized for the conservative play calling, but the emergence of sophomore star Christian McCaffrey is what I believe, saved Shaw from much more scrutiny. The Rose Bowl berth was almost validation for David Shaw.

STANFORD DRAFT PROSPECTS:

  • #51 Joshua Garnett, OG, 6'5", 321 lbs.

  • #8 Kevin Hogan, QB, 6'4", 218 lbs. - 5th year senior

  • #4 Blake Martinez, ILB, 6'2", 245 lbs.

  • #17 Brennan Scarlett, DE, 6'4", 264 lbs.

Iowa was a surprise to all of us. They trekked to 12-0, but lost a nail-biter to Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship, cementing themselves unworthy of a shot at a National Championship. The Hawkeyes have a lot to prove in this game, considering their schedule was absolutely pathetic.

IOWA DRAFT PROSPECTS:

  • #33 Jordan Canzeri, RB, 5'9", 192 lbs.
  • #34 Nate Meier, DE, 6'2", 252 lbs.
  • #14 Desmond King, CB, 5'11", 200 lbs. - 8 INT's this year

AllState Sugar Bowl - Oklahoma State vs. Ole Miss
Game time: 5:30 p.m.
Channel: ESPN
Live stream: WatchESPN

Ole Miss is another overrated football team. They were praised after knocking off Alabama, but then soon lost Florida, Arkansas, and Memphis. The Rebels had a relatively disappointing season, despite being poised for greatness with another great recruiting class. Ole Miss is loaded with NFL talent, let's take a look at some of them:

OLE MISS DRAFT PROSPECTS:

  • #5 Robert Nkemdiche, DL, 6'4", 296 lbs.
  • #78 Laremy Tunsil, OT, 6'5", 305 lbs.
  • #1 Laquon Treadwell, WR, 6'2", 210 lbs.
  • #12 Tony Conner, SS, 6'0", 215 lbs.

Oklahoma State comes into this bowl game sitting at 10-2. The Cowboys have marquee wins over TCU, West Vigrinia, and Texas Tech, but they have failed to win games of large magnitude. Oklahoma and Baylor, the two hardest games of their season, were both losses of 10+ points. So how will Oklahoma State fare against another rigid team in Ole Miss?

OKLAHOMA STATE DRAFT PROSPECTS:

  • #38 Emmanuel Ogbah, DL, 6'4", 275 lbs.
  • #1 Kevin Peterson, CB, 5'11", 190 lbs.
