Northwestern vs. Texas Tech: Brutally Honest Ticket City Bowl Preview

NU cheerleaders

The college football game formerly known as the Dallas Football Classic is a pretty even-Stephen (like Colbert, a Northwestern alum) match on paper.

Same exact conference and overall records for both teams. Both programs don’t care much to run the ball, and they each have only one good win among their seven. Which is funny because the two teams they beat in those games (Iowa Hawkeyes, Missouri Tigers) played in a bowl a few days ago. Iowa beat Mizzou- good omen for NU?

Forget the double digit spread, this ballgame is a “pick’em.”

Northwestern to face Texas Tech in Dallas, New Year’s Day Bowl

Just as I predicted exactly after week eight of the regular season, the Northwestern Wildcats will head to Dallas for the Dallas Football Classic, (re-named Ticket City Bowl since I made the prediction) on New Year’s Day in the Cotton Bowl. This college football bowl game will feature the Big 12 eighth team, in this case the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

So you know this game will be to forward passing what tight t-shirts and hair gel is to young New Jersey males.
