SBC Bowl Games

Unread post by appchicago » Sat Dec 16, 2017 5:53 pm

Sun Belt faring well in bowls so far.

Troy takes out North Texas 50-30 in NOLA and GaSt looks poised to top the Hilltoppers in the Cure Bowl (27-17 with just over 2 min to play).

stAte hits the field in Montgomery in 2 hrs.

Today is exactly why I roll my eyes at people when they say CUSA is better.

I thought Troy would roll a NT team with no defense, but I’m surprised at how easily GA St won, great start.

While I agree with the point you're making it is worth noting Ark State and Georgia State are playing teams that finished 6-6 with a 4-4 conference record. I will say though to aid your point, Co-Champ Troy beating division winning North Texas pretty easily does speak volume. I look forward to future games with Troy. Glad the divisions have us together.

Ark St is better than MTSU if they’d get out of their own way.

Yea lots of mistakes leading to MTSU points. Ark D looked aggressive as hell out of the gate.

Remember FAU also blew them out in the conference title game.

North Texas has a garbage defense and Ark St make at least a dozen mistakes, what a frustrating game.

Arky let the Fun Belt down once again. They’re the worst.

I agree. I get losing games that you should win. It happens to us all. But Arky St. makes it an art form. They bring the perception of the conference down by finishing in the top half of the conference each year after crapping their pants OOC.

Let's not be premature about stAte embarrassing the conference. Not that I think we will but one never knows until the game is played.

It’s not premature; they’ve been doing it for years. And yes, if we finish 0-4 outside the conference while sharing the league title that would be an embarrassment too.

Even though it's their last year, come on New Mexico....bring home the 4-1.

Doesn't mean much, but it's the little things.

The SBC has never won the bowl cup, good chance if NMSU pulls off the upset. Would love it for that fan base and honestly a heck of a team this year.

I want them to win so that we can all point the Arky St. as the weak link.
