We’re Going Bowling

Boise State faces Baylor in the Cactus Bowl on Dec. 27 and the Bears have a new head coach next year in Matt Rhule, previously Temple’s head coach, and a player on this Bears team that has lost six in a row is guaranteeing a victory over the 10-2 Broncos.

That is strong talk from K.D. Cannon who in his own right is a very good football player who has caught 73 passes for 989 and 11 touchdowns, all of which lead the Bears passing attack.

Baylor probably thinks Boise State is just some random non-power five team and not a team that won double-digit games this year and is just a few years removed from winning a Fiesta Bowl.

This is nothing new for Boise State, or any other non-power program, but Baylor has been awful the last half of the season and there is also a reason why the Broncos are a touchdown favorite from Las Vegas, and Bill Connelly’s projections give Boise State an 84 percent chance to win and the average margin of victory of 17 points.

Baylor can obviously win this game as they do have a pretty good offense that is fifth in yards per game, but their defense has a lot of issues and are giving up 30 points per game on the year and during their losing streak have allowed 43.6 per game during that stretch.

Baylor's Petty rallies Jets past 49ers, 23-17 in overtime

Bilal Powell ran for 145 yards, including the game-ending 19-yard touchdown in overtime. San Francisco (1-12) led 17-3 at halftime, but fell flat after that and lost a franchise-worst 12th straight game.

Powell took over from there and scored his second TD of the game on New York's first possession of overtime after Petty's scramble and 26-yard pass to Robby Anderson put the Jets in field goal range.

Petty, who went 23 for 35 for 257 yards in his second career start , rallied the Jets back from a 17-3 deficit in the first half by leading two fourth-quarter scoring drives. New York used a 15-play, 66-yard drive to cut the deficit to 17-14 with 5:04 left when Powell bowled his way in for a 5-yard run and Petty ran in the 2-point conversion .

New York then forced a punt and Petty led the Jets 33 yards to tie the game on Nick Folk's 50-yard field goal with 38 seconds left.
