Thread: A look at possible bowl game matchups

  1. #1

    Default A look at possible bowl game matchups

    Here's a summary of key statistics for teams we might face in a bowl game. I left out the Mountain West teams even though State played a MWC team in the Cure Bowl a few years ago because I think that's unlikely. I'm also assuming we won't face any AAC team other than Tulane. Teams in red are playing in the CCG this weekend. I left Buffalo and UNCC out because they were already both selected.



    IMO, the issue isn't facing good QBs or good WRs as much as it is facing more pass-oriented schemes.

    The worst matchup to me looks like Central Michigan and Southern Miss. Both of those games would be Troy-esque matchups. Hopefully CMU will win the MAC CG and eliminate the possibility of that game. I would also prefer to not play Louisiana Tech. I also don't care to face Willie Fritz, Bill Clark (UAB), or Butch Davis (FIU) on extended periods of prep. Basically I'd like a MAC team other than CMU. The CUSA teams seem to present more of a schematic mismatch.

    Any team that passes a lot and effectively, and can stop the run is a nightmare for us regardless of record (see Troy).

    AAC picks bowls differently. Could see UCF or Temple if chips fall a certain way.

    I'm tired of playing MAC teams, bring on someone else.

    Something tells me that we have many years of playing Michigan directional schools in Alabama ahead of us, I’d like to avoid that whenever possible.
