Top five pre-Christmas college football bowl games to watch

Quote:
ARMED FORCES BOWL
Houston (8-4, 5-3 AAC) vs. Army (10-2)
Saturday, Dec. 22; 3:30 p.m., ESPN
The Buzz: Army is back in the Armed Forces Bowl for the second straight year after putting together another 10-win season. The Black Knights, who knocked off San Diego State in last year's game, are looking for their first 11-win season if they can knock off Houston. The Cougars come into this one on a bit of a down note, having lost three out of their last four games. They'll be without their best offensive (D'Eriq King) and defensive (Ed Oliver) players for this game, which is bad news when facing the second-best rushing team in the nation.

Remember when Army had 11-loss seasons?

I was trying not to mention that part.

Actually back in those days everyone played 11 games so they'd be 1-10, but the point remains...

2000 they were 1-10 with us being their only win
2002 they were 1-11 with us being their only win again

2002 Army went 1-11. They beat us 14-10 (Hawaii Bowl year). We turned the ball over I think 7 times and still "coulda" won.

A few years ago, a Ron Zook led Illinois team started 6-0 before losing their last six. In 2015, Baylor managed the same ignominious feat. It's not quite as bad, but starting 7-0 and finishing 0-6 is pretty rough. Those Illinois and Baylor squads won their bowl games too.

For Strong this is just like Texas a few years ago. It's like he goes brain dead mid-season or the team has unlimited bar tabs. Marshall ?? Come on, Charlie. Way to represent.

I predicted strong would crater in Tampa... that last year was the result of having taggarts players. Didnt think it would happen halfway through this season though. His seat is warm for sure. Makes our big win there look not so big.

Their offensve numbers didn't fall off hugely. Their rushing defense did. Their schedule was backloaded as well, apart from their outlier win versus Georgia Tech. Five of those first seven wins were against Elon, UMass, ECU, UConn, and Tulsa. And they struggled with those teams for the most part. After we beat Tulsa I was very confident that we'd have a real shot at USF.

On offense, Barnett threw half as many TD's as Flowers but nearly twice as many int's. Barnett was notably more accurate but I guess that was just between the 20's. I tried to tell people here in the summer that Barnett was fool's gold but they looked at his old, worthless stars.

I thought Strong could have a "Skip Holtz at La Tech" tenure at USF but this year's finish... The jury will be in quick next season.

Agree with LG, after we stomped them I went and looked at their schedule and prior results and followed the link someone posted to their board, and it was pretty clear that they were not that good, had an easy start to the year and a rough end, and even their fans saw it coming.

I still hoped they could beat Marshall though...

First team to ever start out 7-0 and finish up at 7-6. They say.

Not quite as far a fall, but Tulane 1974 started 5-0 and finished 5-6 back when it was an 11 game schedule. It may be worse throwing in a bowl game loss too but 1974 was painful.

That's true for pretty much every team on Marshall's schedule for me, though.....

Also, for USF:
