You’ve Read This Far, So You Get Three Honest Thoughts On The Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl

America is owed a good Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl. This thing has been an utter disaster over the first four seasons, with all four games ugly blowouts decided by an average of 28 points per game. Last year, Florida Atlantic rocked Akron 50-3 for the third time in four games that someone hit the 50-point mark. Be shocked, though, if that happens in this version with these two offenses.

America is owed a good bowl game with Northern Illinois in it. This program has been an utter disaster in bowls under head coach Rod Carey, losing five in a row going back to 2011, with four of them in ugly blowouts.

But it’s not like UAB has shown up, either. This is just the third bowl trip for the program – it didn’t get off the bus last year in the Bahamas, losing 41-6 to Ohio.

– This game catches a break by being a standalone bowl game on a Tuesday night. Be shocked if this is an offensive firefight in any way, and it would probably get lost in the shuffle if it was part of a Saturday bowl glut. It’s a primetime game, and it’s a bowl. That should be enough to get attention – now it has to be decent.

Super. So Who’s Going To Win The Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl?

First one to score two touchdowns wins? The two defensive fronts should dominate the game, but there’s one big key – NIU’s offensive line struggles in pass protection, and UAB’s doesn’t. The Blazers have a more consistent offense, they’ll own the clock, and … it’s Northern Illinois in a bowl game. However, this should be tight with these two defense.
