Better Know a Bowl: The R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl

When: December, 21st, 8 PM
Where: New Orleans, LA.; ESPN
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles (6-6) vs. the Troy Trojans (8-4)

Southern Miss quarterback Austin Davis's 21 touchdowns broke Brett Favre's record (15) for touchdown passes by a freshman. No word on whether Davis will also attempt to break Favre's record of "inches of intestines removed after a car accident."

Troy fields two linebackers whose combined statistics are pretty impressive (217 tackles, 13.5 for loss, and four sacks). More impressive, though, is that their names are Boris Lee and Bear Woods. "Boris and Bear" sounds like a Ukranian cartoon from the late '50s.
