How to watch Sun Bowl online, TV schedule, radio and more


Previewing the 2012 Sun Bowl, which features the USC Trojans and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

When the USC Trojans and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets meet in El Paso, the Sun Bowl will pit two teams with different mindsets.

The Trojans began the season ranked No. 1 in some polls, and many had them set on a BCS National Championship. Matt Barkley and crew were unable to live up to the hype, and now they're looking to salvage anything from their disappointing season. As Conquest Chronicles wrote earlier this month, many at USC just view this game as extra practice for some of their underclassmen.

As for the Yellow Jackets, their triple-option offensive attack led them to another mediocre season in the ACC. After dropping a heartbreaker in the 2011 Sun Bowl, they are looking to make a statement against another Pac-12 foe this time around. Georgia Tech features a losing record of 6-7, and they had to apply for a postseason waiver in order to make the game.

Most pundits feel USC will have their way against the Jackets and their inconsistent defense, but as From The Rumble Seat wrote, it appears Tech has begun making some adjustments to their defensive scheme in recent weeks.
