Bowl Preview VIII

Jan 8, 9 PM, ESPN, Mobile, AL
Arkansas State by 1.5

Northern Illinois can feel the rath of a fully operational Death Star


QUICK ANALYSIS: A great rushing team vs. a great passing team with a strong defense.  Two evenly matched teams that should have played about three weeks ago instead of wasting The Bowl of Who Cares right before the national title game.

MAX: Both of these teams plays mostly garbage all year, but based on the record of the garbage teams in bowls, I think Arkansas State had a tougher schedule.  This really is a very even match up, with both teams winning ten games, and putting up decent stats.  I expect this one to be close.  I think Northern Illinois can put up points, but man, they give them up just as fast.  Arkansas State’s defense will step it up in this game, they win 27-17.  Take Arkansas State to cover, but take the under.
