Indeed, peradventure the utmost prepossessing non-BCS matchup of the 2006 bowl season, Arkansas resistant Wisconsin, will be plague by storming Vikings, obtuse dads cashing in bad frequent-flier miles, and David Spade as a call-center employee. Thank surface for Tivo.
The Capital One Bowl, hereafter referred to as the Former Florida Citrus Bowl, happens in Orlando, and habitually boasts the close, the manic and the cockamamy. This one and the same Wisconsin unit force off a beautiful big 24-10 in a panic over and done with Auburn second year; two age ago, Iowa interconnected on a last-second Hail Mary to stun LSU; in 2004, Georgia toppled Purdue in overtime; in 2003, Auburn overpower Penn St. 13-9. This year's halt will fact institute football's unsurpassed freshman moving back, Wisconsin's P.J. Hill (1,533 yards rushing, 15 TDs) in opposition school football's longest sophomore running back, Heisman competition Darren McFadden (1,558 yards rushing, 14 TDs). At this prickle in their careers, McFadden is the more insidious player, and is a truthful home-run threat on all play, time Hill is a big (242 lb.), downward-sloping criminal who punished Big Ten opponents almost all destiny he got in '06.Post ads:

The concrete interrogate on all sides of the FFCB is: How "real" is Wisconsin's 11-1 record? They only vie one intensely better team, and missing at Michigan, 27-13. Their non-conference programme incorporated Bowling Green, Western Illinois, San Diego St. and Buffalo, for which they should be embarrassed. (Arkansas may have vie cupcakes suchlike Utah St., Southeast Missouri St. and Louisiana-Monroe, but at least possible they hosted USC.) By a queerness of the schedule, Wisconsin too avoided Ohio St. this year, and piece they did win at traditionally hard to chew places similar Purdue and Iowa, the Big Ten was furthermost to be sure downfield over again in 2006. So the beyond compare cumulative book of numbers the Badgers collected in '06 are at slightest a puny questionable. Sure, statistically Wisconsin boasts the nation's second-best pass defense, the third-best general defense, and the third-best marking defense in the country, but their single stratified opponent, those vexing Wolverines, scored a season-high 27 on them, and ran for 111 yards spell throwing for 199. Arkansas's rush beat 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 enclose the Razorbacks to not as much of than 150 yards on the soil.
That said, I don't suppose that needfully disqualifies them from successful this crippled. Wisconsin's defending scheme will be to key on McFadden similar to crazy, and try to mark out his flight wherewithal (as all right as his accumulation Felix Jones's). The Badgers will try and put the orb in the custody of Arkansas quarterbacks Casey Dick and Mitch Mustain, who've done zero this yr to transmission they're experienced of carrying a unit (combined, they've thrown 19 TDs and 13 INTs - 16 TDs with 11 INTs in SEC dance - and only just eclipsed a 50% execution charge per unit). The Badgers simply gave up 139 yards passing per hobby (second in the land), and allowed six TD passes compared beside 13 interceptions. There's elfin inquiry Houston Nutt and Arkansas will have to plan a crippled draft to do quite a few sabotage via the air, and I reflect that'll be unyielding for Dick and Mustain to get that through with.
On the otherwise line-up of the ball, Hill has the dominance of moving down OT Joe Thomas, who could be a top-five pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. But unrelated Arkansas, Wisconsin has shown they can chuck it a little: they rated 48th nationally in slip away yards per lame (and 26th rushing), and will specially be buoyed by the reappear of starting QB John Stocco, who unconnected a body part and uncomprehensible the Badgers' ultimate two games. TE Travis Beckum (team-high 56 receptions for 821 yards) will be a hard target for the Razorbacks' linebackers to be with, and Stocco (15 TDs, iv picks) will promulgation the game equipment nigh on to his wideouts. Arkansas gets a remarkable pass by gush from DE Jamaal Anderson, and the team was nice resistant the rush (3.7 yards per fetch and 124 yards per game, 47th locally).Post ads:

For me, this halt comes fuzz to whether McFadden's positive starring influence overcomes Arkansas's deficit of impolite equilibrium. We're talking something like the #4 running barrage and the #105 endorsement ambush. The Badgers won't be competent to slow McFadden and Jones, but if they can lazy them down, that may perhaps be adequate. Wisconsin is 8-1 in opposition the distributed in their end cardinal non-conference games, 19-7-2 ATS in their final 28 games as an underdog, 4-0-1 ATS in their ending 5 antagonistic teams with in the lead records, and 7-2-1 in their end 10 after straight-up wins. By contrast, Arkansas is 1-5 ATS in their concluding six non-conference tilts, and 0-5 ATS in their later v in games successive contests in which they allowed 200 or more than running game yards (and 2-5 ATS in their second 7 shadowing a straight-up loss). It's alarming to trust on a Wisconsin squad that wasn't challenged by a chiefly hard schedule, and it's startling not to amass the squad who'll part the top musician in the team game. If Arkansas can brainstorm the run-game explosiveness that traumatized Auburn (at Auburn), Wisconsin won't have a colourful in part. But I focus the Badgers can stricture McFadden's large show business (they'd improved), breed the quarterbacks conveyance much of the load, and construct adequate long drives of their own on discourtesy to hold on to the lame very much nestled. For these reasons, and for the trends I've mentioned, I'm winning Wisconsin ( 2) concluded Arkansas in the FFCB. And I expectancy by Monday afternoon, once you ask me what's in my wallet, I'll have a small-scale more to extravaganza.
Regular Season: Our finishing choice of the college football routine season, San Jose St. handsome cardinal resistant Fresno St., was a comparatively natural cover, as the Spartans won antagonistic the hostile Bulldogs, 24-14. That helped us shroud up other productive body field game season, beside an overall journal of 9-5 resistant the broadcast. Here's hoping we can hang on to it active through with the vessel period of time.
