Bowl Game Challenge

The WEPM College Bowl Challenge

Here’s how it works, Pete, George, Joe, Efren and Greg will pick a winner of the 35 bowl game schedule.

 The scoring breaks down as such:                                                        

 5 points for each correct game winner

 1 bonus point for each exact final score
 
Example: WV-56 Syracuse 24, if I had those exact scores as the finals, that’s 2 pts on top of the 5 pts for having the correct winning team, a possible total of 7 pts.
 
For BCS games, the points double. 10pts for each correct game winner and 4 bonus pts for each exact score.
 
In the unlikely event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be who ever comes closest to the point total of the BCS Championship game without going over.

Here is a listing of all the bowl games, opponents, dates, times and locations!

Pinstripe Bowl

Tomorrow West Virginia will take on Syracuse at 3:15 in the New Yankee Stadium. Having DirecTV let's me have New York stations and if you love snow according to those tv reports then you folks are in for a treat. As tv had forecasted snow and lows in the low 30's all afternoon. Perfect football weather!

Digging out the media guide this evening for the Mountaineers it had me wondering what A. The overall series record between the Orange and Mountaineers was (Syracuse leads 32-27) and B. What was West Virginia's record in bowl games in my lifetime I remember (6-11).

I will start with column b of the bowls I remember.There are those I always love remembering The 2006 Sugar Bowl when the Mountaineers beat the Georgia Bulldogs 38-35. The 2008 Fiesta Bowl when the Mountaineers beat the Oklahoma Sooners 48-28. And of course last years Orange Bowl when the Mountaineers beat the Clemson Tigers 70-33. But there are those i love erasing from my memory. Like the 1989 Fiesta Bowl when the Mountaineers lost to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 34-21 (an undefeated season before that game). Or the 1994 Sugar Bowl when the Mountaineers lost to the Florida Gators by a final of 41-7 (again an undefeated season before that game). The Gator Bowls i do not need to name scores there those where just straight up nightmares for the gold and blue faithful .

Column a has me thinking of really two games. Sure there where alot more but two really stuck out to me. 1998 when Syracuse came to Morgantown with a high ranking the Mountaineers rose to the challenge and won by a final of 35-28. And another game I remember that I would LOVE to erase is last year when the Mountaineers went to the Carrier Dome and got romped by a final of 49-23. Again there are many in between the two but those are the ones that i do honestly remember,

So for as far as tomorrow goes. I see the Mountaineers avenging last year's loss to the Orange and winning in a shootout. After all it is Bailey,Austin, and of course Smith's swan song so they cant loss rigth?

Do not forget the game tomorrow can be heard here in Sports Radio 1340 WEPM starting at 1:15 pm for a 3:15 pm kick.
