In NCAA Football Birmingham Bowl, we will see Boston College at Cincinnati.
Boston College is 6-6 and it received an invite for this bowl game due to their last win over Pittsburgh. The Eagles had a rough schedule, facing both Clemson and Notre Dame. The team showed that it is poised offensively but on the defensive end, things do not look good at all. The team is scoring 30.9 points while allowing 31.7 points per game. The team is also going back and forth with its quarterbacks Anthony Brown and Dennis Grosel- both of them did not impress at all.
The Cincinnati Bearcats are ranked 21st and they only lost to Ohio State and Memphis this year, twice to the latter. The team also had a great game against UCF and managed to win many close games. It appears that these guys have the mental strength, in order to secure victories in hostile circumstances. The Bearcats are averaging 31 points per game and allowing just 21.
Both teams rely on the rushing attack but Cincinnati knows how to defend against it. The Bearcats are a ranked team and Boston College struggles against such.
