After the first three New Year's Eve bowl games ended in blowout wins - for UCLA over Virginia Tech, Arizona over Boston College, and Ole Miss over Rice - Texas A&M and Duke treated us to a thriller in the fourth and final game Tuesday night, with the Aggies winning the Chick-fil-A Bowl 52-48.
Virginia Tech's defense is incredible, and the Hokies can make your defense look pretty good, too. Can UCLA drag the Sun Bowl's scoring into the 20s? Just saying: the Sun Bowl (Dec. 31, 2 p.m. ET, CBS) was the site of the last 3-0 bowl ...
Expect a shootout in the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl, where both Texas A&M's and Duke's offensive lines (and quarterbacks) hold solid advantages. Still, A&M's advantages are a little bigger, and the Aggies should win as a result.
In 2013, Mississippi State pulled a Rice, improving late in the season to reach a bowl and get its coach off of a relatively hot seat. Can the young Bulldogs ride quite a few defensive advantages to a seventh win?
