Where: Annapolis, Maryland
When: Dec. 31, noon
Who: Cincinnati vs. Virginia Tech
Line: Cincinnati by 5
Why watch: It’s too early for New Year’s Eve drinking at noon — but it’s not too early for football.
Dash pick: Cincinnati 35, Virginia Tech 24. The Hokies gave up 31 or more points five straight times between Oct. 25 and Nov. 23, first time Virginia Tech has done such a thing since it went winless in 1950. So a Cincy offense that has been good but not great should be able to score. Meanwhile, the Bearcats fielded one of the nation’s best defenses.

Says who?
Pat Forde - Dash

I read several predictions regrettably many are picking us to be upset. Who did VT beat:

FSU - this is not the FSU that used to be.
Duke - another weak ACC
W&M - Mediocre FCS
NC - a horrible team they beat by 3
VA - A mediocre team they beat by 3
Marshall - There best win in a buy game

Losses:
ODU a weak 4-8 Sun Belt team
ND
GT BC Pitt Miami all 7-5

The Bowl Gift List is out:

Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman (Cincinnati vs. Virginia Tech)
Dell Mobile Projector M318WL; $100 Amex Gift Card; ISlides

The Projector specs says it has 7GBs memory.
It can be powered by a 2 lb battery.
You may need a dongle.
The specs list a Throw Distance; it weighs 0.8 lb.
I guess you can toss it 75 feet -- but who would want to throw it that far?

Other Bowls just list a generic "gift suite".
The Cats have a nice Christmas present.

Is that throw distance with or without the 2lb battery attached?

I would expect to see a lot of Dell Mobile Projector M318WL on ebay come the first of the year.

Tech hasn't beaten anyone this season. But if we are honest - UC hasn't beaten anyone either.

UCLA - bad PAC 12 team
Miami - Mediocre MAC team
AA&M - FCS HBCU
OHIO - surging MAC team
UCONN - really bad AAC team
Tulane - .500 AAC team
SMU - mediocre AAC team
Navy - 3-10 AAC team
USF - probably the best win next to UCLA
ECU - bad AAC team


The teams that handled VT, like Pitt and BC pounded the ball. UC has to commit to grinding it out with the run game. Defensively, Tech is much softer than they have been the last 25 years.


Also, VT offense is erratic. The WRs can make plays. RBs are bad. Peoples is the go to RB and he is a "program guy" at best. Would have been a great FCS kid, but not a P5 RB. Eliminate big plays on the perimeter, you stop Tech's offense.

I think UC wins, but I think it will be close.
