I don’t like Detroit but I like this matchup if it happens!

Agreed. Of the match-ups in the article that would be the most high profile and give us a shot at another boneyard victory over a SEC team. On the other hand, we are 3-5 in Ford Field; as I said in another thread while we have had some success, Ford Field has not been too friendly to us.

With how firm NIU was in not wanting to play in that bowl last year, would that be a problem in accepting a Detroit bid? I get the feeling there will be a discussion whether to accept it, if its in Detroit.

I'm hoping for something in Florida so that I can make it to the game. I would be curious to see some rumors as well.

I keep seeing a lot of Potato Bowl versus Utah State. I'm hoping the teams gets a little nicer destination than Boise in December.

Pretty sure MAC champ goes to mobile unless they shop us around, which is possible. I'm kinda hoping for a matchup that favors us. Want to end the year on a high note going into next season.

I doubt we will be shopped. The reason for shopping would be (1) TV Ratings (ESPN motivated) and (2) Fans expected to travel (Bowl Partner motivated).

I think ESPN will recognize NIU is a ratings risk since we have not shown we have a consistent prolific offense. However, they may try to promote a high octane offense team vs SS and an dynamic NIU defense. The Bowl Partner will also look at our home attendance and MACC attendance and compare that to other options.

Mobile was very fun the last time we were there.

I wouldn't mind a mobile matchup with Troy. Don't want to play Georgia southern with the triple option they run.
