Texas Bowl Preview and Prediction: Arkansas vs. Texas

The Razorbacks and Longhorns meet in Houston.
Texas Bowl Preview and Prediction: Arkansas vs. Texas

Arkansas and Texas renew an old Southwest Conference rivalry in NRG Stadium on Dec. 29 for the ninth Texas Bowl matchup.

Liberty Bowl Preview and Prediction: West Virginia vs. Texas A&M

The scoreboard in Memphis should be active on Dec. 29 when West Virginia and Texas A&M meet in the Liberty Bowl. The Mountaineers and Aggies each average over 30 points per game, and there’s plenty of familiarity between the programs due to the coaching staffs. West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen worked under Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin at Houston, and both programs run a variation of the Air Raid offense.

Holiday Bowl Preview and Prediction: Nebraska vs. USC

Huskers and Trojans prep for first bowl meeting
Holiday Bowl Preview and Prediction: Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. USC Trojans

Nebraska fans must be asking themselves: Can Mike Riley start now?

 

The new Cornhuskers coach has many skills that will be welcome in Lincoln, but in the here and now, Riley's hex on the 2014 bowl opponent is of particular interest.

 

Despite a deficit in talent and resources, Oregon State tended to be a spoiler for USC in its glory days during the last 10 seasons. Three unranked, Riley-led teams upset three ranked USC squads in the last six meetings, including an upset of the No. 1 Trojans in 2007 and the No. 3 Trojans in 2006.

 

Pinstripe Bowl Preview and Prediction: Boston College vs. Penn State

Penn State makes its postseason return in classic Eastern matchup
Pinstripe Bowl Preview and Prediction: Boston College Eagles vs. Penn State Nittany Lions

The last Penn State bowl appearance was hardly an experience the Nittany Lions want to remember.

 

In 2011, Penn State went to Dallas to play in a bowl game televised on ESPNU in a crowded slot with more appealing matchups in the Capital One and Outback bowls. That the bowl was an afterthought was just fine.

 

Under interim coach Tom Bradley, Penn State lost 30-14 to Houston, ending a season in which the program was reeling from scandal.

 

This game will be different.
