12/30 Bowl Game Thread: Michigan vs FSU and Nebraska vs Tennessee are on Deck

New, 479 comments

The Music City Bowl, a convenient home game for Tennessee, and the Orange Bowl are on tap today.

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Music City Bowl

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Tennessee Volunteers (-7) || 3:30pm ET || ESPN

Nebraska is dealing with injuries to big contributors on the offensive end as they come limping into what is a defacto home game for Tennessee in Nashville. Tommy Armstrong is doubtful to play in the game, although not officially ruled out, as well as Jordan Westerkamp, who has been ruled out due to a knee injury. To make it worse, Nate Gerry has been ruled ineligible to play, which is a significant blow to the secondary. This one could get ugly.

Orange Bowl

Florida State Seminoles vs Michigan Wolverines (-7) || 8:00pm ET || ESPN

Michigan takes on FSU in the Orange Bowl tonight, looking to make up for missing out on the playoff after tripping up against Iowa and losing to OSU in OT at the end of the season. Harbaugh should have the services of Wilton Speight and will look to wear down the FSU defense. On the other side of the ball, Michigan will need to contain Dalvin Cook in order to win the game. Cook is expected to go in the first round of the NFL Draft and possesses elite speed and acceleration. Expect the announcers to spend roughly 50 of the 60 minutes in the game fantasizingabout the Jabrill Peppers vs Dalvin Cook matchup occurring.
