One down, two to go…

Military Bowl from Washington, DC today was actually a good one.  The game see sawed back and forth with 24 San Jose State solidifying their top 25 ranking with a 29 – 20 victory over Bowling Green.

In Charlotte, NC, the Belk Bowl is underway with Duke leading, 16 – 10 over  Big East Co-Champion Cincinnati.  If Duke were to prevail, it would be their first bowl victory in over 50 years.  Duke jumped out to an early and impressive lead, 16 – 3 and then had a shot at another TD which was fumbled away and Cincinnati recovered.  The Bearcats proceeded to close the gap.  With under three minutes to go in the first half, Duke punted the ball away and put Cincinnati on their own one yard line.  Cincinnati proceeded to drive down the field and take the lead, 17 – 16.  Duke then mounts a drive a kicks a 53 yard field goal which was nullified by an illegal substitution call against Cincinnati on defense.  Duke then missed the 48 yard field goal attempt (heartbreak!)  This looks like it is going to be a good one.  Gotta pull for Duke, and the ACC.  Halftime – Cincinnati leads 17 – 16.

Later tonight the Holiday Bowl from San Diego should be a good one as well,  Baylor vs. 17 UCLA.  Expect some scoring.

Recap of these games to follow along with preview of three more bowl games tomorrow, Independence Bowl, Russell Athletic Bowl, and Meineke Car Care Bowl (all on ESPN).

Come on guys, you gotta love College Football and bowl season!
