    I generally always cheer for whoever is playing the ul twins. And I usually pull (preemptive twss) for Tech's opponents.

    So no problems there ...

    Brett McMurphy still has us in Frisco vs. SMU
    * Florida State is pushing to get into the Gasparilla Bowl in St. Petersburg. The Seminoles technically would have to be bypassed by every ACC bowl to be available for a non-ACC bowl. But I’m told FSU is lobbying to play in St. Pete. If FSU is not successful getting to St. Pete, the Seminoles would probably end up in the Independence Bowl. If FSU gets to St. Pete, it’s unknown if they would play the American rep (USF) or C-USA rep (FAU). This one could get interesting.
    * Nothing’s official until Sunday but … these appear locked in (unless there are some major upsets in the conference title games that shuffle the bowl lineup):Michigan State-LSU in Citrus
    Kentucky in Music City, most likely vs. Purdue
    Virginia-Navy in Military
    Memphis-UCF winner to Peach
    Memphis-UCF loser to Liberty
    Michigan to Outback
    Utah to Heart of Dallas
    Fresno State (if it loses MWC title game) to Foster Farms
    SMU to Frisco
    FIU to Boca Raton
    North Texas to New Orleans

    New Mexico State, if eligible, to Arizona

    CUSA Bowl Projections:

    http://www.sunherald.com/sports/college/conference-usa/article187357953.html


    Armed Forces Bowl (Dec. 23) — La. Tech (6-6) vs. Army (8-3) — Louisiana Tech fans have traveled well to the DFW area and I’m sure bowl officials have taken note of that.

    The AFB is a very good bowl game (was #3 overall game last year), and is probably MUCH better than we deserve this year. Also, Army is probably a team that Tech matches up with very well this year. I like it.

    That would be the perfect game for us this year.

    Re: 2017 Bowl Games

    I would prefer not to go back to Ft. Worth again. Had a great time last year, especially at the game vs. "the un-ranked #25 team in the nation." TCU has a nice campus and the stadium is first rate. BUT! been there, done that. Of course, if it happens, I plan to be there.

    It was a lot of fun last year. Army is a team we can compete with - I hope, and it isn't Shreveport. At this point though, I just want A bowl.

    Oh they were ranked in a poll that only matters in seeding the top 4 teams and determining which G5 plays in the access bowl.

    Only Tech (or ulm) would tout playing and beating a "ranked team" not ranked in any of the traditional polls. ...the same peeps who are already saying, " for the first time ever qualified for 4 straight bowl games".

    As a Tech fan, I don't take pride in moral victories like almost beating (insert name) or the constant play on words our AD's peeps use to destroy Tech history and tradition that existed long before our AD and his band of Millennials took over. Those who are taken in by the poor salesmanship amaze me.

    Would love to see us in Frisco! Great city, new bowl location so local excitement. Would be nice have football for bowl game, baseball for Frisco Classic, and basketball for CUSA tournaments all in Frisco in four months.

    For Tech, this is the bowl for us. In the heart of the DFW market we are trying to recruit students. I suspect Tech attendance will be lower this year regardless of location and Frisco is a very small stadium which should be filled for the game. If we play SMU it will be a lot of blue and red.

    Ordinarily I would like the idea of playing SMU in the Frisco Bowl too. The only downside is, we don't match up well with an SMU team that passes the football 99% of the time. Tech might lose to SMU, 56-10. That's why I think a matchup with Army might be better.

    I like Frisco - only draw back is that I don't know if I could attend

    Selfishly leaning towards I-Bowl cause it fits my schedule
