It’s New Year’s Day. Say what you will about the rest of the bowl season, but this still matters, the Rose Bowl is still a standalone sporing event that rises above the fray, and we have some season-makers coming up in the new year.

This is all just for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only. However, just in case you dabble …

Outback Bowl

Tuesday, January 1st
12:00, ESPN2, Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL 
Iowa vs. Mississippi State

– Don’t think too hard on this one. If this was played in mid-October, Mississippi State wins by ten.

– But it’s a bowl game, so of course you have to worry. Iowa has the defense to keep this close – at least, closer than the seven points.

– But Mississippi State has the defense to turn the lights out. This is going to be a jacked up Bulldog team with an O line that should destroy the Iowa running game. Nate Stanley and the Hawkeye passing game are gone, but no.

See what the props are on Iowa rushing yards. Whatever it is, go under.

– 41 for a point total in a bowl game? Yeeeeeeeeuck. If this game really does hover around that, it’ll quickly become ignored with the bigger games coming up.

– Nick Fitzgerald will be terrific, the Bulldog defense will dominate, and again …

– Don’t overthink this. Iowa won last year’s Pinstripe over Boston College. This Mississippi State team isn’t 2017 Boston College. Before that, the Hawkeys lost five straight bowls.
