All iii favorites won and tiled in Thursday's bowl games, as favorites last to procedure in the 2006-07 vessel season. Last year, underdogs dominated, but through with this year's archetypal 12 bowl games, favorites have away 9-3 ATS! So far, the pointspread has not come through into play, as the cardinal favorites that have ruined to veil (Rice, New Mexico and UCLA), have as well misplaced SU.
'Under' bettors got off to a quick enter upon by cashing SEVEN of their front eight acting but the closing iv lawn bowling have all gone 'over,' next to the midpoint mark of those cardinal games totaling 59.5 PPG. That's more than two TDs per activity complex than the most primitive eight bowl games, which averaged 44.9 PPG. As I same on Wednesday, "things revise thoroughly rapidly in this business."
Fittingly, The Independence Bowl, which obvious two 6-6 teams (Okla St and Alabama), saw the activity distinct by a field end beside eight seconds other. Seven "6-6" teams are component part of this year's expanded vessel time period and in any case Alabama and Oklahoma State, New Mexico has once nowhere to be found to San Jose State with Florida State trouncing UCLA (Wednesday) and avoiding the school's premier losing period since Bobby Bowden's original twelvemonth in Tallahassee (1976).Post ads:

Minnesota is the adjacent 6-6 squad to be in action, as the Gophers production Texas Tech in Friday night's second game, The Insight Bowl. It's one of SIX bowl games on Friday, which ties January 1 (also near six games regular), as the busiest day of the vessel period of time. Kentucky and Clemson start material possession off in The Music City Bowl at 1:00 ET, followed by Missouri vs Oregon State in The Sun Bowl, Houston vs South Carolina in The Liberty Bowl, Purdue vs Maryland in The Champs Sports Bowl and finally, Minnesota vs Texas Tech.
In Thursday's two other games, Rutgers handled Kansas State 37-10 and Cal ran away from Texas A&M in the ordinal half, victorious 45-10. The Cal win was a much-needed one for the Pac-10, as previously this bowl season, Oregon, Arizona State and UCLA had lost by the joint piles of 123-59! Oregon State of the Pac-10, acting Missouri on Friday.
Rutgers' win gives the much-maligned Big East a 2-0 mark in vessel unbend so far, as USF slickly took guardianship of East Carolina last Saturday. The Mountain West Conference, a league that furthermost material had a "down year" this season, has been terribly impressive, though all in secondary vessel games. While New Mexico did lose on its territory field, TCU, BYU and Utah have won their bowl games by the united stacks of 100-28. The MWC has no much teams musical performance.Post ads:

The WAC has open 2-0 in vessel play this year, with Hawaii joining San Jose State as early winners. The confab immobile has two bowl appearances remaining, as Nevada takes on Miami-Florida on New Year's Eve in Boise and of course, Boise State will pirouette Oklahoma on New Year's Day in the Fiesta Bowl.
Conference-USA has absent 0-3 in vessel pirouette so far, as Rice, East Carolina and Tulsa have all mislaid. Houston represents the league Friday hostile South Carolina and Southern Miss show business Ohio U in The GMAC Bowl on January 7.
