Forde-Dash picks us to win!

R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl (5)
Memphis vs. Florida Atlantic
Dec. 21, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN2)

Why watch: Because there's a certifiable coaching legend on one sideline (and no, we're not referring to Tommy West [6]). And because you've never seen the FAU Owls play in a bowl game before. Most of you have never seen the FAU Owls, period. Bonus points to anyone outside the Sun Belt who knows their colors.

40-second analysis: Nobody made the postseason by a skinnier margin than 7-5 Memphis, which won five games by three points or less. The Tigers were 0-2 against Sun Belt teams, while Howard Schnellenberger's Owls went 6-1 in winning that league. Quarterbacks Martin Hankins and Rusty Smith shouldn't have too much to worry about in the pocket, facing defenses that rank 107th (Florida Atlantic) and 111th (Memphis) nationally in sacks.

Dash pick: Florida Atlantic 45, Memphis 38.

Re: Forde-Dash picks us to win!

i really like this guy's analysis…minus one thing:

sacks…….

we WILL bag Hanky Boy more than once…

One thing no one is taking into account, is that this is NOT a spread offense team…which we have seen ALL aseason long minus OSU and UK…

BIG plus for FAU's defensive attack…

i think we will rattle this guy, and make that a priority, especially in the second half if we get a good enough lead…

He sounds good, and I agree with his prediction. ;D  Again, the more we're on ESPN, the better for us and our future.
