We have finally reached bowl season! In this game on New Year’s Eve it’s the Military Bowl when the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Virginia Tech Hokies face off at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
The home team has won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Cincinnati Bearcats were expected to maybe win five or six games this year but they have shocked a lot of people with their play this year.
Coming into this game they have a 10-2 record with their only losses coming against UCF and the Temple Owls. For the Bearcats the offense is good but it’s all about the defensive side of the ball.
They are currently giving up only 16.1 points per game and there shouldn’t be any reason they can’t lower that number.
On the offensive side of the ball the Bearcats are led by Desmond Ridder who has thrown for 2359 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions.
In this game the Bearcats need to get out to the fast start. If they can get out to a fast start and then have the defense lock down they should have a good chance to come out with a win.
Virginia Tech Hokies
On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Tech Hokies who needed a win in a makeup game just to get a Bowl Game.
This really has been a bad season for the Hokies but wins in their last two games was enough to get them into this game.
A big problem the Hokies have is they had to turn to their backup quarterback after Josh Jackson was lost for the season due to injury.
Ryan Willis has stepped in and he as been decent. So far this season he has thrown for 2497 yards, 22 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.
In this game Willis can’t turn the ball over. If they give the Bearcats offense short fields that will be troublesome for their chances.
