Three Reasons Why You Should Watch The Redbox Bowl

In the category of Teams Trending Up – way, way up – Oregon is coming off a massive recruiting period under head coach Mario Cristobal, it won three of its last four games, and it appears to be on the verge of becoming a thing again.

Win or lose, this is going to be one of the IT teams going forward, but if the Ducks do pull this off, the narrative will be set. With the talent level coming in, and with the base in place, this would be a terrific nine-win season with a whole lot for Duck Nation to be jacked up about. Speaking of the needle pointing up …

Okay, so watching Michigan State football this season is about as much fun as sitting through Welcome to Marwen, but even though it was relatively disappointing seven-win season, with just about everyone of note coming back, this has the potential to be a big springboard for 2019. The Spartans might not be a scintillating thrill ride, but if this defense is on – and you like that sort of thing – they’ll be a sight to behold.

No matter what it’s called, this bowl game has always been a bit strange. It’s not in the ESPN rotation of bowls – it’s on FOX – it’s played in an area of the world that just doesn’t care that much about college football, and … it’s been really, really interesting over the last several season.

The last three have each been decided by eight points or fewer, and no matter what, there’s always a good storyline to come out of it. Whether it was Purdue winning a bowl last year, or Utah slipping past a game Indiana the year before, or Nebraska and UCLA getting into a firefight in 2015, for the most part, the last ten have been entertaining. This year, it should at least be close.
