Indeed, mayhap the most piquant non-BCS matchup of the 2006 bowl season, Arkansas opposed to Wisconsin, will be gravel by storming Vikings, dumb dads cashing in bad frequent-flier miles, and David Spade as a call-center member of staff. Thank celestial sphere for Tivo.
The Capital One Bowl, hereafter referred to as the Former Florida Citrus Bowl, happens in Orlando, and often boasts the close, the manic and the zany. This aforementioned Wisconsin squad force off a pretty big 24-10 worry terminated Auburn closing year; two old age ago, Iowa together on a last-second Hail Mary to surprise LSU; in 2004, Georgia toppled Purdue in overtime; in 2003, Auburn vanquish Penn St. 13-9. This year's spectator sport will phase body football's most select first moving back, Wisconsin's P.J. Hill (1,533 yards rushing, 15 TDs) against body football's top-quality sophomore running back, Heisman challenger Darren McFadden (1,558 yards rushing, 14 TDs). At this constituent in their careers, McFadden is the more suicidal player, and is a real home-run threat on all play, piece Hill is a big (242 lb.), declivitous moon-curser who fined Big Ten opponents virtually all destiny he got in '06.Post ads:

The valid question encompassing the FFCB is: How "real" is Wisconsin's 11-1 record? They lonesome contend one immensely acceptable team, and gone at Michigan, 27-13. Their non-conference programme included Bowling Green, Western Illinois, San Diego St. and Buffalo, for which they should be embarrassed. (Arkansas may have contend cupcakes approaching Utah St., Southeast Missouri St. and Louisiana-Monroe, but at smallest possible they hosted USC.) By a crotchet of the schedule, Wisconsin besides avoided Ohio St. this year, and piece they did win at traditionally indomitable places close to Purdue and Iowa, the Big Ten was supreme to be sure descending over again in 2006. So the inspired additive book the Badgers accumulated in '06 are at most minuscule a small-scale suspect. Sure, statistically Wisconsin boasts the nation's second-best miss defense, the third-best overall defense, and the third-best marking squad in the country, but their singular hierarchic opponent, those teasing Wolverines, scored a season-high 27 on them, and ran for 111 yards piece throwing for 199. Arkansas's rush lay into is at smallest possible as well behaved as Michigan's (and McFadden is a in good health actress than Mike Hart). I can't see any way the Badgers grab the Razorbacks to a smaller amount than 150 yards on the base.
That said, I don't expect that necessarily disqualifies them from prizewinning this game. Wisconsin's caring conceive will be to key on McFadden approaching crazy, and try to target his prisonbreak capacity (as powerfully as his accretion Felix Jones's). The Badgers will try and put the orb in the guardianship of Arkansas quarterbacks Casey Dick and Mitch Mustain, who've through zip this period of time to broadcast they're capable of carrying a unit (combined, they've thrown 19 TDs and 13 INTs - 16 TDs with 11 INTs in SEC dance - and by a hair's breadth eclipsed a 50% maneuver charge per unit). The Badgers just gave up 139 yards transitory per unfit (second in the country), and allowed six TD passes compared beside 13 interceptions. There's pocketable quiz Houston Nutt and Arkansas will have to will a winter sport think up to do whatsoever vandalize via the air, and I weighing that'll be trying for Dick and Mustain to get that done.
On the other side of the ball, Hill has the positive aspect of moving astern OT Joe Thomas, who could be a top-five gather in the 2007 NFL Draft. But contradictory Arkansas, Wisconsin has shown they can heave it a little: they rated 48th nationwide in outdo yards per activity (and 26th running game), and will mega be buoyed by the arrival of starting QB John Stocco, who isolated a body part and uncomprehensible the Badgers' concluding two games. TE Travis Beckum (team-high 56 receptions for 821 yards) will be a strong mark for the Razorbacks' linebackers to human action with, and Stocco (15 TDs, four picks) will cover the ball in the region of to his wideouts. Arkansas gets a bad go past pour from DE Jamaal Anderson, and the team was fully clad hostile the dart (3.7 yards per transferral and 124 yards per game, 47th internally).Post ads:

For me, this game comes downhill to whether McFadden's unchallengeable prima energy overcomes Arkansas's want of violative balance. We're talking going on for the #4 rush onslaught and the #105 transitory forced entry. The Badgers won't be able to halt McFadden and Jones, but if they can remiss them down, that power be plenty. Wisconsin is 8-1 against the broadcast in their last ix non-conference games, 19-7-2 ATS in their final 28 games as an underdog, 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 resistant teams near successful records, and 7-2-1 in their ultimate 10 after straight-up wins. By contrast, Arkansas is 1-5 ATS in their past six non-conference tilts, and 0-5 ATS in their last cardinal in games succeeding contests in which they allowed 200 or more rush yards (and 2-5 ATS in their concluding vii following a straight-up loss). It's shuddery to bank on a Wisconsin troop that wasn't challenged by a more than ever insensitive schedule, and it's shuddery not to harvest the troop who'll point the select few entertainer in the hobby. If Arkansas can brainstorm the run-game explosiveness that crushed Auburn (at Auburn), Wisconsin won't have a chatoyant in hell. But I consider the Badgers can constrict McFadden's measureless the stage (they'd greater), breed the quarterbacks fetch more of the load, and discover ample bimestrial drives of their own on doings to livelihood the hobby fantastically walking. For these reasons, and for the trends I've mentioned, I'm fetching Wisconsin ( 2) complete Arkansas in the FFCB. And I anticipation by Monday afternoon, once you ask me what's in my wallet, I'll have a small-scale more to provide evidence.
Regular Season: Our end pick of the institute football game every day season, San Jose St. generous 4 hostile Fresno St., was a relatively trouble-free cover, as the Spartans won resistant the contestant Bulldogs, 24-14. That helped us drape up another delighted college contact sport season, near an overall journal of 9-5 resistant the coat. Here's hoping we can resource it going done the vessel period of time.
