Popeye’s Bahamas Bowl:
Eastern Michigan vs. Old Dominion (1pm ET, ESPN)
Old Dominion hasn’t done to bad in their transition period. In the first year they were eligible for a bowl, the Monarchs accepted a bid to the Popeyes’s Bahamas Bowl. Two days before Christmas, I wouldn’t mind playing some football in the Bahamas.
Both of these teams are trying to work their way into being a competitive FBS team. It’ll be interesting to see how well these two play. They’ll both be looking for a win to jump start their programs.
For Old Dominion, they want to one day be considered a top FBS team. Eastern Michigan is just hoping to make a leap in their rebuilding process. This game will be interesting to watch. If you’ve got some free time or a laptop at work, take some time and watch.
