Ohio St. vs. Texas
I could have done better in the wild card games yesterday but I look to redeem myself in tonight’s game between Ohio St and Texas.
Texas has to be wishing they were in a bigger bowl game and that alone could leave them with no motivation in tonight’s game and you could get a similar reaction that Alabama had playing in the sugar bowl.
For Ohio St. the motivation is there as they have been known to lose the big game and to lose it badly and if they do not pull the win out in this game the reputation will get only worse.
Here are five things you may not have known for this game tonight.
1) Tressell is working on several different offensive looks to employ against the Texas defense with multiple QB’s running the show.
2)Texas has been a bad bet in bowl games.Texas is just 8-16 ATS all-time in Bowl games and 5-12 ATS as Bowl favorites.
3)Ohio State is 4-1 all-time in the Fiesta Bowl winning three in the last six years.
4) Ohio St returns 19 retuning starters and will be experienced in the big bowl game.
5)The Fiesta Bowl has seen the underdog win and cover five of last seven
All of these lead me to believe that the points are the way to go in this one tonight!
Ohio St. +8.5
