Indeed, perhaps the record good-looking non-BCS pairing of the 2006 vessel season, Arkansas in opposition Wisconsin, will be chivvy by storming Vikings, dim dads cashing in bad frequent-flier miles, and David Spade as a call-center member of staff. Thank celestial sphere for Tivo.
The Capital One Bowl, lifespan referred to as the Former Florida Citrus Bowl, happens in Orlando, and recurrently boasts the close, the chaotic and the silly. This said Wisconsin unit force off a pretty big 24-10 indignant over and done with Auburn ultimate year; two time of life ago, Iowa coupled on a last-second Hail Mary to confuse LSU; in 2004, Georgia toppled Purdue in overtime; in 2003, Auburn cadence Penn St. 13-9. This year's crippled will element academy football's cream of the crop first-year running back, Wisconsin's P.J. Hill (1,533 yards rushing, 15 TDs) in opposition body football's select few intermediate running back, Heisman rival Darren McFadden (1,558 yards rushing, 14 TDs). At this constituent in their careers, McFadden is the more insecure player, and is a apodeictic home-run danger on every play, spell Hill is a big (242 lb.), descending outlaw who rebuked Big Ten opponents all but both accidental he got in '06.Post ads:

The existing query around the FFCB is: How "real" is Wisconsin's 11-1 record? They just compete one really polite team, and lost at Michigan, 27-13. Their non-conference diary integrated Bowling Green, Western Illinois, San Diego St. and Buffalo, for which they should be sheepish. (Arkansas may have compete cupcakes same Utah St., Southeast Missouri St. and Louisiana-Monroe, but at smallest possible they hosted USC.) By a queerness of the schedule, Wisconsin likewise avoided Ohio St. this year, and spell they did win at traditionally feisty places like Purdue and Iowa, the Big Ten was maximum no problem feathers over again in 2006. So the consummate additive book the Badgers amassed in '06 are at least a trifling shady. Sure, statistically Wisconsin boasts the nation's best miss defense, the third-best general defense, and the third-best rating defense in the country, but their simply graded opponent, those pesky Wolverines, scored a season-high 27 on them, and ran for 111 yards while throwing for 199. Arkansas's running play volley is at lowest as virtuous as Michigan's (and McFadden is a more musician than Mike Hart). I can't see any way the Badgers surround the Razorbacks to a lesser amount of than 150 yards on the terrain.
That said, I don't reckon that needfully disqualifies them from conquering this lame. Wisconsin's en garde outline will be to key on McFadden like crazy, and try to limitation his escape cleverness (as well as his backup Felix Jones's). The Badgers will try and put the orb in the safekeeping of Arkansas quarterbacks Casey Dick and Mitch Mustain, who've through with nil this time period to extravaganza they're surefooted of carrying a unit (combined, they've thrown 19 TDs and 13 INTs - 16 TDs next to 11 INTs in SEC unbend - and hardly eclipsed a 50% pass completion charge per unit). The Badgers just gave up 139 yards transient per halt (second in the administrative district), and allowed six TD passes compared beside 13 interceptions. There's diminutive interview Houston Nutt and Arkansas will have to testament a crippled think up to do quite a lot of interfere with via the air, and I assume that'll be problematic for Dick and Mustain to get that through with.
On the remaining edge of the ball, Hill has the advantage of moving trailing OT Joe Thomas, who could be a top-five gather in the 2007 NFL Draft. But divergent Arkansas, Wisconsin has shown they can fling it a little: they rated 48th across the nation in slip away yards per hobby (and 26th running game), and will even more be buoyed by the official document of protrusive QB John Stocco, who split a shoulder and incomprehensible the Badgers' final two games. TE Travis Beckum (team-high 56 receptions for 821 yards) will be a hard-bitten target for the Razorbacks' linebackers to linger with, and Stocco (15 TDs, iv picks) will distributed the globe about to his wideouts. Arkansas gets a severe exceed run from DE Jamaal Anderson, and the unit was clothed against the well up (3.7 yards per carry and 124 yards per game, 47th nationwide).Post ads:

For me, this activity comes downhill to whether McFadden's incontestable stellar clout overcomes Arkansas's shortage of loathsome go together. We're discussion give or take a few the #4 rushing volley and the #105 transient volley. The Badgers won't be competent to hold back McFadden and Jones, but if they can laggard them down, that possibly will be adequate. Wisconsin is 8-1 opposed to the transmit in their last cardinal non-conference games, 19-7-2 ATS in their ultimate 28 games as an underdog, 4-0-1 ATS in their concluding five in opposition teams near ahead records, and 7-2-1 in their second 10 after straight-up wins. By contrast, Arkansas is 1-5 ATS in their last six non-conference tilts, and 0-5 ATS in their closing 5 in games later contests in which they allowed 200 or more running play yards (and 2-5 ATS in their final vii shadowing a straight-up loss). It's shivery to believe on a Wisconsin social unit that wasn't challenged by a specifically resilient schedule, and it's alarming not to deciding the squad who'll part the first-rate participant in the unfit. If Arkansas can find the run-game explosiveness that devastated Auburn (at Auburn), Wisconsin won't have a changeable in part. But I deduce the Badgers can issue McFadden's limitless drama (they'd improved), trademark the quarterbacks take more of the load, and compose adequate monthlong drives of their own on doings to livelihood the halting dreadfully hand-to-hand. For these reasons, and for the trends I've mentioned, I'm attractive Wisconsin ( 2) done Arkansas in the FFCB. And I anticipation by Monday afternoon, once you ask me what's in my wallet, I'll have a petite more than to prove.
Regular Season: Our closing harvest of the institute contact sport official season, San Jose St. bounteous four antagonistic Fresno St., was a relatively glib cover, as the Spartans won antagonistic the competing Bulldogs, 24-14. That helped us coat up different thriving body football game season, with an overall record of 9-5 in opposition the dispersed. Here's hoping we can support it active through with the bowl season.
