    Why is Rice in a bowl game? Sagarin ranks them 70th, one behind perennial power North Texas and seven spots behind Fulmer's former team.

    North Texas is in a Bowl game too. We'll do a game thread on that one too. :)

    Man, when did ESPN commentators become so anti "run up the score"? They complained about every play MSU ran in the 4th quarter. It's a bowl game, those players earned it....let them play some football.

    Good for Mullen and Mississippi State... but the SEC needs to put an end to that cowbell crap.

    Agree on the Cowbell. As for Rice, I think there are so many bowls that a winning record gets you in. Guess Mullen lucked out drawing Rice, ends the year beating Ole Miss and Rice and puts off the wolves for another year.

    That said, given all the new names I have new clue on some of these bowls, where they are, who is in em, etc.
