The College post-season has been set, and the two teams that I pull for are both playing in bowl games. The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (my alma mater) will be squaring-off against Northern Illinois in the Independence Bowl. And the LSU Tigers will be meeting Georgia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
The Bulldogs were able to sneak into this bowl because the SEC and the Big 12 didn’t have enough bowl-eligible teams to fill the slots. But that’s okay. The Bulldogs haven’t been in a bowl since 2002, and all of us Bulldog fans are grateful for whatever we can get. I think we have a good chance of winning this one.
LSU had a sub-par season, but teams like this one often go to bowls anyway. LSU has their work cut out for them in this game. Georgia Tech beat Georgia last week, and Georgia trounced LSU earlier this season. I am not so sure that the prospects look all that good for the Tigers. Nevertheless, I’ll be pulling for them.
