New Orleans Bowl

Another day, another bowl we could care less about.  The first four years this bowl was around, North Texas represented the Sun Belt, and posted a 1-3 record.  Last year Arkansas State did not fare much better.  This year Troy will try to shock the world and show that the Sun Belt Conference Champion is better than a middle tier Conference USA team.  Not going to happen; Rice will win.

I am not even sure if Troy (formally Troy St.) has ever played in a bowl and it has been over 40 years since the Owls last sniffed a bowl appearance.  I am not sure what the line is for this one, but I have to believe that a mediocre C-USA team is 8 points better than the best the Sun Belt can muster.
