5 Thoughts: TransPerfect Music City Bowl Analysis

This was a (Trans)perfect non-New Year’s Six bowl. Sorry.

Tons of offense, tons of momentum swings, tons of drama, tons of energy, tons of fans in the stands, and one whopper of a controversy to close, this was what you want in a bowl game.

Tennessee was up 21-7, Purdue scored 16 straight points in the second quarter, the two teams traded shots back and forth in a wild second half, and then came the finish. Tennessee RB Jaylen Wright was stuffed on fourth down just before the goal line, kept creeping, got the ball in the end zone, and … forward momentum stopped. Purdue ball, field goal, ball game.

With close to 1,400 yards of total offense helped by five touchdowns of over 40 yards, it was one of the highest-octane bowls of all-time.
