Gasparilla Bowl
FIU vs. Temple

A local team makes the list on a Thursday night prior to Christmas. If that’s your only reason to watch this one, you’re not alone. This game might not be a good one, but a least Philadelphians will get to see Frank Nutile play one final time this season. Nutile has been shades better than opening day starter Logan Marchi. The Owls won three of their final five games with Nutile under center, finishing a very pedestrian 6-6. They weren’t good this season, but did just enough, including beat an FCS team, to become bowl eligible. On the other side of the field is FIU, which finished the season 8-4 and on a two game winning streak. The Panthers are bowl eligible for jsut the third time in program history and the first time since 2011. The Panther score 27.5 points a game, but have score 104 over the last two. While I don’t like to admit I can’t watch every game every weekend, I can say I’ve seen an extensive amount of Temple football. The team isn’t good. FIU gets my pick.

FIU 27-Temple 17

From the Butch presser...

Approximately 30 buses sold out for the students? Hmm...I wonder if they are including the give away tickets from last weekend.

So if the average charter bus holds ~53.75 students....that yields approximately 1,612.5 students to attend the game.

Not bad at this point in time

Did Coach say we have 30 buses taking students!??? Unless those buses take 1-2 students each there is no way that’s accurate. Lol anyways hope we get at least a couple hundred students out there. These are the type of games that could potentially make fans out of some students.

30 buses? Maybe they're short buses? Or rent-a-vans...
