Bowl Season Open Thread: The Orange Bowl


Ugh….here we go again. Out of all the people on FOX’s coverage last year there was one person I couldn’t stand more than any other…..Barry Alvarez. But hey that’s just me and maybe he’s improved like Charles Davis. See you around 8ish for fun.

Anyone up for drinking every time the bands are shown?

#8 Kansas vs. #3 Virginia Tech
The Orange Bowl
8:00 PM ET, January 3, 2008
Dolphin Stadium, Miami, FL

Weather: 53 Degrees, Chance of Showers 30&
Spread: VT -3.5, O/U 52
AA’s Pick: Tough one here. I’ve seen VT play a lot this season and they’ve never really beat anyone by that much. That was until their last 5 games of the season. VT -3, buy the half (Record 16-10-2)
Announcers: Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, and Barry Alvarez (FOX)
