When: December, 20th, 2:30 PM
Where: Uh, New Mexico? Albuquerque, to be exact. And also ESPN.
Who: The Colorado State Rams (6-6) vs. the Fresno State Bulldogs (7-5)
This game's got the distinction of being the first bowl game of the season! Which basically means it sucks big time. Strange to think that a few months ago, Fresno State was being talked about as a potential BCS buster. Whoops.
Look, I tried to come up with a compelling reason to watch this game, but all I could come up with is that there's no other football on. Really, if you're getting lathered up for a game pitting the fifth place team in the Mountain West and the fifth place team in the Mountain West, you might be wise to reexamine your interests. But if you still want something more tangible, how about this: Colorado's angling for their first winning season since 2003 and each team fields a young, impact linebacker: Mychal Sisson (redshirt freshman, Colorado State) and Ben Jacobs (sophomore, Fresno State). Wow, sign me up!
