Bowl Games in Phoenix

  1. CFP National Championship
  2. BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl
  3. Motel 6 Cactus Bowl

cfp-natlChamplogoThe CFP National Championship teams will be decided New Year’s Eve. The two bowl games that decide the championship teams will be played New Year’s Eve. Yes, New Year’s Eve, NOT New Year’s Day as is typical. Plan accordingly.

BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl

Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Ohio State Buckeyes have won the honors of participating in this season’s BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl.

It is a rematch of the 2006 Fiesta Bowl which Ohio State won 34-20. Ohio State enters the game as heavy favorites, but many of Notre Dame’s strengths appear to match up well against the Buckeyes.

fiestaBowlLineUpwstats

The defending national champs are apparently disappointed about playing in the Fiesta Bowl. (Boo! Hiss!) That being said, it is still has the potential to be an amazing game.

Controversy swirls as Tim May, of the Columbus Dispatch, notes that Ohio State senior defensive lineman Adolphus Washington has been suspended for the Fiesta Bowl. He was recently charged with a first-degree misdemeanor. No Buckeyes lineman pressured the quarterback more than Washington this season.

In Washington’s absence, all eyes will be on the star of Ohio State’s defense, Joey Bosa. Normally lining up on the left, this will match him up against Notre Dame right tackle Mike McGlinche. Scouts are hoping to see Bosa versus Ronnie Stanley since both prospects are potential top-10 picks in next year’s NFL draft.

It will be just the sixth meeting between the schools, with Ohio State winning the last three. The Irish last took down the Buckeyes in 1936.



Fiesta Bowl Predictions

Campus Insider and The Bleacher Report are well known and credible sources for bowl game predictions.

Both have an interesting and entertaining perspective on the topic.


Campus Insider Fiesta Bowl Predictions

Tailgate at the Fiesta Bowl!

Campus Insiders takes you deep inside college sports. A platform that broadcasts the games, covers the events, provides the highlights, and tells the stories of college sports.

Honest enough to admit that their programming will be lively, provocative, and even include controversial debates tied to the issues of the day in college sports. Who doesn’t love a little controversy?

Jordan Cornette, of Campus Insiders, gives the win to Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish. His reasoning is that they have something to prove. Notre Dame returns to the Fiesta Bowl after a 2006 loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Read about the last encounter here: http://espn.go.com/college-football/recap?gameId=260020194

Campus Insider promises to give you the inside scoop.

“Our embedded Insiders will…not only report on the Xs and Os [but also what’s] happening in the locker rooms and on the fields of play… it’s time for all of us to mix it up the same way we all have done at our tailgates throughout our lives.”


Bleacher Report Fiesta Bowl Predictions

Partner_Logo_Bleacher_Report2Ryan McCrystal , Featured Columnist at the Bleacher Report, goes right after what may be the Fiesta Bowl’s first controversy. That is, the defending national champs are apparently disappointed about playing in the Fiesta Bowl. Boo!

McCrystal assures us that the Buckeye’s coach, Urban Meyer, will not let his team disappoint the fans. He has an impressive 8-2 record in bowl games.

The Buckeyes are a little disappointed and many of them are headed to the NFL in April. Taken together, the underdog would normally fare well in this scenario. However, McCrystal is going with  the bookies in predicting a Buckeye win. Prediction: Ohio State 38, Notre Dame 21

The teams are the No. 20 Boise State Broncos and the No. 10 Arizona Wildcats. This year Boise State went 11-1. Arizona Wildcats had an overall record of 10-3 and a Pac-12 record of 7-2.

The game should be an exciting one even though neither team has any hope of being in the playoffs.

Brian Pedersen , of the Bleacher Report thinks this game will be, “…the most exciting and enjoyable non-playoff matchup of the postseason.” And Bill Connelly of SB Nation, has ranked this Arizona-Boise State showdown as “…the fourth-best bowl in terms of excitement and No. 8 overall in how watchable it will be.”
