2014 Bowl Spectacular **Update**

On day one of the 2014-15 bowl season the MBBPS prognosticators got off to a bit of a stumbling start, as we combined to forsee just five of a possible ten outcomes. After the first five bowl games, I hold a narrow 3-2 lead by way of the Air Force Falcons, who took down Western Michigan by a final score of 38-24 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bow. Meanwhile, Matt’s pick of Utah in the Las Vegas Bowl turned out about as well as one could hope, as the Utes annihilated Colorado State (whom I picked) 45-10.

But by far the best game of the day took place in Montgomery, AL in the Camillia Bowl, where Bowling Green and South Alabama hooked up in a shootout that wasn’t decided until BG quarterback James Knapke found Roger Lewis for a 78 yard touchdown pass with just over a minute to play. Final score Bowling Green (whom we both picked) 33 – South Alabama 28.

On a final note, I’d like to state that I did, in fact, watch as least some of each of the five games. I saw the ending of the New Orleans Bowl, New Mexico Bowl, and Camellias Bowl, while catching much of the first half of the Idaho Potato Bowl and the second half of the Las Vegas Bowl.

That about does it for now! Check out the chart below for our current standings, and stayed turned for further updates! Until next time!
