For those who like to get their chicken wings on late, Michigan and Kansas State will meet after 10 PM Eastern in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

It’s the first meeting ever between these two schools, which is kind of surprising. Both teams are 7-5, and both have some tantalizing NFL prospects on the roster. Read the rest of this entry »

The Miami Hurricanes and Louisville Cardinals meet up in a foreshadowed conference matchup as Louisville joins the ACC next season.  Each side has multiple prospects on both sides of the ball worth keeping an eye on, but their quarterbacks will be under the brightest spotlight.

The Cincinnati Bearcats make their second consecutive appearance in Charlotte for the Belk Bowl.  This time around they meet up with a different foe from the state of North Carolina, the Tar Heels.  A win for the Bearcats would get them to the 10 win mark for the sixth time in the last seven seasons.  North Carolina just hopes to finish out above .500 after a disappointing season.  Let’s take a look at some of the top prospects in this matchup.

If scouts came to watch only one player in this game, it would be Tar Heel junior tight end Eric Ebron (#85).  Ebron is one of the biggest difference-makers in the North Carolina offense and has all the tools of a first round pick. Read the rest of this entry »

Last year’s game was memorable for West Virginia QB Geno Smith having a brutal afternoon in the snow. Syracuse rolled the Mountaineers and left the draft community stunned. There will be several future NFL players on the field this year too.  Read the rest of this entry »

Syracuse and Minnesota head to Reliant Stadium in Houston to square off for the Texas Bowl, which lacks a snappy title sponsor this year after being brought to us by Meineke and Gallery Furniture in recent years.

Minnesota played in this very bowl a year ago, losing an intense barn-burner to Texas Tech. I was at that game, and that’s where I first really took notice of star DT Ra’Shede Hageman (#99). He was all over the field against the Red Raiders, and he figures to make quite an impact here as well. Read the rest of this entry »


Military Bowl Scouting Preview

If you’re looking to spend your Friday afternoon glimpsing a multitude of first round talent, you may come away disappointed in this one.  Marshall and Maryland are fine teams in their own right, but lack the type of high-level talent that will litter the top of draft boards.  Football is still football, and there are a few late round type prospects worth checking out here.
