2007 Bowl Predictions (Day 2)

Another day, another Bowl game.  Today we get a classic match up between Florida Atlantic and Memphis in the New Orleans Bowl.  Once upon a no so distant past, this was North Texas territory, but as I said, we get a different sort of compelling game between the best in the Sun Belt and the fourth or fifth best in Conference USA.  To be honest, I am not even sure why they schedule this sort of game.  The $325K payout is pretty much a joke, but let’s move on to the prediction.

I am going to give this one to Schnellenberger’s Owls because their non conference schedule was more compelling than Memphis.  The Owls lost to Oklahoma State, #14 Kentucky, #6 South Florida, and #12 Florida.  They also beat bottom of the bottom of the Big Ten barrel, Minnesota.  Memphis?  Does playing Mississippi (perennial SEC joke) and Jacksonville State (who?) count as a non conference schedule?

2007 Bowl predictions:  0 – 1.
