From HOF JDawgBBall9's write-up:
Friday, December 28
-- Ohio vs. Louisiana-Monroe, AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl in Shreveport, ESPN (Dave Lamont, Kelly Stouffer & Cara Capuano), 2 PM – As previously mentioned, Ohio got the invite after Louisiana Tech took their time to accept the bowl invitation to play their little brothers and the ACC didn’t have seven bowl-eligible teams. Ohio was a trendy pick and poked their heads into the rankings for a week before faltering down the stretch while Louisiana-Monroe hasn’t done too much since their opening win against Arkansas. However, don’t sleep on this match-up, it could be another high-scoring affair.
-- Rutgers vs. Virginia Tech, Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, ESPN (Joe Tessitore, the hopelessly unstoppable Matt Millen & Maria Taylor), 5:30 PM – Formally the Champs Sports Bowl, the Hokies somehow made it to Orlando during their worst season in 20 years and their second consevutive season without a QB. Their reward? The third-ranked Scarlet Knights. Don’t expect a pretty game, but hey- it’s football.
-- Minnesota vs. Texas Tech, Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas in Houston, ESPN (Mark Jones, Brock Huard & Jessica Mendoza), 9 PM – Tommy Tuberville made headlines deserting his team for Cincinnati while Minnesota has just about the least sexy 6-6 BCS record you’ve ever seen. This bowl game usually gets some good attendance, but you have to imagine it will be mostly bitter Texas Tech fans that wouldn’t have bought tickets if they knew Tuberville was bolting.
reeeeeeally mad I'll be missing the bulk of the Independence Bowl
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
On paper not the best slate of games. Tomorrow looks promising though.
Go away, KA!
Not related to today's games but interesting (or perhaps ominous would be the better word choice):
@ChipBrownOB: Mack Brown said 2 players suspended, sent home for breaking team rules amid police investigation into alleged sex assault
The players weren't identified. Howevah...
@BobbyBurton247: Two sources tell Hookem.com that Case McCoy and Jordan Hicks have been ordered home from Alamo Bowl.

the UL Monroe QB may be the worst in the history of football. Statham bad.
UL Monroe is my most hated college football team.
They have 2 plays in their playbook: 1) QB draw where the QB slides 7 yards in front of the 1st down marker (even though he has a clear path) and 2) throw INT or 15 feet out of bounds.
hands down the worst bowl game of all-time.
Oregon State-Pitt Sun Bowl a few years ago.
this is giving that game everything its got.
what a POS/BOD game.
Did UL Monroe really just go for it on 4th and Goal from the 11?
How great would it be if VT finished 6-7?
Not much different than 7-6?
I really need RutgersAl to give me a breakdown on this Rutgers team.
What was the line on Ohio today? It started at them +7 I think.
I got them at +7.5 (-125) in a parlay close to kickoff
way to show up UL Monroe.
let's go RUTGERS.
Not as great as if they had missed out on a bowl entirely for the first time in 20 years.
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
LMAO great start
just about what I expected out of this game
lol, just get this season over with already
lol run it up scarlet knights (can't believe i'm saying that)
Kyle Flood has a really shiny head
Also what is that traitor Schiano doing there?
Nova sucks so much.
Balls to the wall
Nu-VT is an up and coming basketball school. This game is meaningless.
Congrats to the 2011 Suqueboard WPT Champion: Amyeg
These are 2 of the worst offenses I have ever seen. When will we move Thomas to TE? He is hopeless at QB
The receiver is well covered, I suck at throwing the ball, and I can easily pick up the first down with my feet... So I should pass it, right?
