College Bowling on X-Mas

One year I had to spend X-Mas in Detroit at my sister in-laws.  I had not planned it out so it never happened but once I was there I realized I could have went to the Motor City Bowl.  This is one I wouldn’t have minded going to considering some of the match-ups that they have.

TINO Member Poll results: 87% in favor of Purdue.

Words from our resident gambling member, MCB:

Purdue should cover the 8 with little to no difficulty. Chippewas defense is awful. I watched a pathetic Akron team drop 30 something on them. Purdue should score 45+.

Some Preview action…

Motor City Bowl
Central Michigan (8-5) vs. Purdue (7-5)

Site: Ford Field, Detroit
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Network: ESPN (Dave Pasch play-by-pplay, Andre Ware analyst)
The line: Purdue by 9.5
Top storyline: Not an exciting ending for Purdue: The Boilermakers finished the season on a three-game losing streak and have lost five of their past seven. Now, they face a team they’ve already beaten this season (45-22 on Sept. 15).
Player to watch: Central Michigan sophomore quarterback Dan LeFevour is only the second player with 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in the same season. The other is Vince Young.
Watchability factor: The first meeting between these teams this year wasn’t too exciting. Why should the rematch be any different?
