Bowl Season Continues On:
We’re reaching the bigger bowls, so I’ve decided to mix things up with individualized previews a la my Lehigh Football previews.
ADVOCARE V100 BOWL
Arizona Wildcats (7-5, 4-5 Pac-12) vs. Boston College Eagles (7-5, 4-4 ACC) at 12:30 on ESPN
Arizona Offense vs. BC Defense
Points Per Game: 32.8 vs. 27.8 Edge: Arizona
Rush Yards Per Game: 265.8 (11th in the Nation) vs. 154.2 Edge: Arizona
Passing Yards Per Game: 186.8 vs. 267.4 Edge: Boston College
The Wildcats have a very formidable rush attack that the Eagles will look to stop. Ka’deem Carey and QB B.J. Denker are a duel threat having combined for over 2,600 yards and 29 touchdowns, both of which beat Denker’s passing statistics: 2241 yards, 14 TDs, and 7 Ints. Arizona Offense edges out BC Defense
BC Offense vs. Arizona Defense
Points Per Game: 28.4 vs. 24.7 Edge: Boston College
Rush Yards Per Game: 218.1 vs. 169.8 Edge: Boston College
Passing Yards Per Game: 150.8 vs. 235.5 Edge: Arizona
BC Offense edges out Arizona Defense
If you can’t tell, one team is looking to run over the other. Both teams have great rush attacks, but so-so passing games. Alex Amidon of BC is the only receiver with more than 550 yards. The difference maker for me is that Arizona has a dual-threat QB in B.J. Denker. JSB and Matty D agree, we’re all going with Arizona.
Shoutout to JSB’s girlfriend Kaitlin Keller, hailing from the great state of Arizona.
