Early Saturday Bowl preview

Saturday will offer five College Football games!  First up is the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl from Fort Worth, Texas.  This game is on at 11:45 am EST and will feature Rice vs. Air Force.  (Go Air Force!)

3:15 pm EST: New Era Pinstripe Bowl from Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY  West Virginia vs. Syracuse   (Two departing Big East teams will face off)

4:00 pm EST: Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl from San Francisco, CA  (great city!!)  Navy vs. Arizona State  Go Navy!  Arizona State will be the favorite, but never hurts to pull for the academies!

6:45 pm EST: Valero Alamo Bowl from San Antonio, Texas  23 Texas takes on 13 Oregon State  This should be the premier match up of the day.  This game is marred by a bit of unsettling news coming out of San Antonio.  Two Texas players, QB Case McCoy (younger brother of Colt McCoy) and LB Jordan Hicks have been sent home and will not play as they reportedly missed curfew.  In addition, two unnamed Texas players are under investigation for an alleged sexual assault incident.  I want to repeat, this is an alleged assault, no charges have been filed.  Still, not a pretty picture coming out of San Antonio.

Finally, at 10:15 pm EST: Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl from Tempe, Arizona  TCU faces off against Michigan State.

Hold on folks, things are heating up as we head towards New Years eve, New Years Day and the week after leading up to the January 7th BCS Championship Game!
