Red’s Texas College Football Game of the Week

This week look no further than College Station for Red’s TCFGOTW as the University of Texas San Antonio Roadrunners head to Kyle Field to face the quickly fading Texas Aggies.  Just a couple of weeks ago, the Aggies were in the running to make the final four having lost only to unbeatable Alabama (and even looking pretty good for about a half).  But they followed that with losses to mediocre squads.  Meanwhile, the RR’s are enjoying a decent season by their standards coming in at 6-4 and possibly getting minor bowl consideration with a win over a ranked team.  The Aggies are a mere 98.2% favorite in this one, but never underestimate the spirit of a team that has been broken, stomped on, charred a bit and heaved in the dumpster behind the Golden Corral on Hwy 6.  The Aggies should cruise to a win, but that is why they play them.  Texas A&M 42 UTSA 17.

Texas Bowl Games or More Correctly, Bowl Games to be Played in Texas

The College football Bowl schedule for Texas is now set.  In addition to the national semi-final playoff game between Alabama and Michigan State at JerryWorld in Arlington (aka the Goodyear Cotton Bowl) on December 31, the overcrowded Bowl schedule includes the following soon to be classics:

December 26 –

Hyundai Sun Bowl at the Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso: Miami vs. Washington State  – featuring the return of former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach to Texas with the resurgent Cougars. 1 pm on CBS.

Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl at the Cotton Bowl Stadim in Dallas: Washington vs. Southern Miss  – just to make sure that all major college teams from Washington get to play in Texas this year. 1:20 pm on ESPN.  They didn’t want anyone to miss the kickoff at the Sun Bowl.

December 29

Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth: California vs. Air Force – a game sure to draw in thousands of fans, as in about 2000.  1 pm on ESPN

AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl at NRG Stadium in Houston: LSU vs. Texas Tech –  just to disappoint those looking for a Texas Tech/Texas A&M matchup8 p.m. on ESPN.

January 2

Valero Alamo Bowl at the AlamoDome in San Antonio: Oregon vs. TCU – which actually looks to be one of the more entertaining games on the undercard. 5:45 p.m. on ESPN.

In addition, several Texas teams will travel outside of the great state to end their seasons:

 Baylor will face North Carolina in the Russell Athletic Bowl at the Orlando Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida on Dec. 29 (4:30 p.m. on ESPN)

Texas A&M will match up against Louisville in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee on December 30 (6:00 pm on ESPN).

Houston will try to finish 13-1 against Florida State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia on December 31 (11:00 a.m. on ESPN).
