Three Reasons Why You Should Watch The Cheez-It Bowl
– It’s the first Power Five vs. Power Five matchup of the bowl season, and it’s okay if you’re a little confused. The Cheez-It Bowl moved names from Arizona to Orlando – this used to be the Camping World Bowl – and there’s a whole lot to prove from every angle, starting with the game itself.
The Camping World Bowl was a disaster last year – Notre Dame easily got past Iowa State 33-9 – and the Cheez-It Bowl owns the gold standard for bad bowl games with TCU’s 10-7 overtime win over Cal in 2018. And then there’s this …
– How bad has Miami been in bowl games? It beat West Virginia in the 2016 Russell Athletic Bowl. That’s it since 2006, dropping nine of the last ten including a 14-0 clunker to Louisiana Tech in last year’s Independence. Combine that with a 62-26 loss to North Carolina to end the regular season, and the pressure is on. Unlike last year, though, the offense has QB D’Eriq King and a whole lot more pop.
– Oklahoma State – who has gone 3-1 in the last four bowl games – was supposed to be a true challenger for the Big 12 title, but it faded late with three losses in the last six games. However, the offense is better and improving – even though star RB Chuba Hubbard has opted out – and a blowout to Oklahoma is the only real dud game. It’ll make this an offensive show.
