GMAC Bowl
January 6, Mobile AL 7 pm ESPN
Troy vs. Central Michigan

This Bowl Could Be Great Because ... two high-octane champions from non-BCS conferences should put on an amazing show. Levi Brown and Troy throw the ball as effectively as any non-BCS team outside of Houston, while Dan LeFevour will be close out his phenomenal career looking for his second bowl win. Expect lots of scoring, phenomenal quarterback play, and a game every bit as fun as any of the BCS matchups.

This Bowl Could Suck Because ... this has been the worst of the bowl games by far over the last few seasons. In the last five bowls, the victors have won by a combined score of 282 to 75. Ball State didn't even show up last year in a 45-13 loss to Tulsa, while Bowling Green was a disaster in a 63-7 loss to the Golden Hurricane in the 2008 game.

The Initial Knee-Jerk Reaction ... Troy's defense isn't like the Troy defenses of past years. Brown will bomb away for over 300 yards, but LeFevour should be spectacular in his final game. This should be the best GMAC Bowl since the classic 64-61 Marshall win over East Carolina in 2001.

"This should be the best GMAC Bowl since the classic 64-61 Marshall win over East Carolina in 2001."
That sums up the story that needs to be sold to the people of Mobile. If you want to see an air show come out to Ladd Stadium.
