On Wednesday, January 1st 2014 we have the first of the five BCS Bowls and this game with the #4 Michigan State SPARTANS (12-1, 8-0 Big Ten) playing #5 Stanford CARDINALS (11-2, 7-2 Pac-12) with the game kicking off at 5:10 pm ET on ESPN TV and coming to us from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California and another game weather should not be a factor.
For those who Bet on College football they have to know that this bowl game is the Granddaddy of all the bowl games, the Rose Bowl and this year's game may be the quickest game to end of all bowl games regarding the amount of time it takes to play the game. Why, because of the matchup of teams. Hard to believe but the statistics from SBG Global indicate that this is the Stanford’s team 14th appearance in the Rose Bowl and its second consecutive as last year they defeated Wisconsin 20-14. In those appearances the Cardinals are 6-6-1 in the 1st 13 Rose Bowls they attended, and yes there are ties. For the Spartans this is their 5th appearance and the first since back in 1988 when they beat Southern Cal 20-17. This game may belong to the quarterback that can make the big play!Continue Reading
Another great New Year’s Day Bowl game on Wednesday, January 1st 2014 with the game being played at the Raymond James Stadium (65,657) in Tampa, Florida with the Iowa HAWKEYES (8-4, 5-3 Big Ten) playing the # 21 LSU TIGERS (9-3, 5-3 SEC) with kick off at 1 pm ET and on ESPN TV.
At the sports wagering site for those that Bet on College Football the opening line at Bet Royal has the Tigers of LSU favored at -7 -115 with the total at 49 and -290 money line. The Tigers three losses where all road games as they lost to Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama and a feather in their cap is that they are the only team to beat the Auburn Tigers this year and that was with QB Mettenberger playing and he now is injured with a torn ACL in cannot play in this bowl game. A major concern for this game is can back-up QB Jennings while making his 1st start of the season will he get the job done? For his sake he has talented receivers with Landry and Beckham and RB Hill who has 14 TD’s on the year with 184 yards offense and averages 6.8 yards each carry. LSU ranks 21st averaging 27 points each game with an offense that is well balanced averaging 265.1 yards passing and 200.9 yards rushing per game.Continue Reading
