BBVA COMPASS BOWL
(6-6, 3-4 Big East)
(6-6, 3-5 SEC)
1:00 PM ET, January 5, 2013
Legion Field, BIRMINGHAM, AL
Oh Legion Field, how I do not miss you one iota. Vinnie Sunseri's brother, Tino, quarterbacks his last game ever. This is the third straight year that Pitt has gone to this bowl beating Kentucky in 2011 and losing to SMU last season.
I'd like to see Ole Miss win because, well, you know: SEC! SEC! SEC!... but Hugh Freeze has cast some kind of spell over recruits and have them thinking that they are going to be some kind of contender in the near future. Ain't gonna happenin'.
Loser gets 6-7. Winner gets 7-6. Yee-haw.
