Military Bowl Could Be Worth Trip For San Jose State Spartans

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

The college football bowl season will roll into overdrive after the Christmas holiday with the Military Bowl Presented By Northrop Grumman on December 27 between the 8-4 Bowling Green Falcons and the 10-2 San Jose State Spartans at 3 p.m. Eastern Time in Washington, D.C. This is at least a decent game for fans to watch while relaxing after the holidays. I do think that one team has a decided advantage on the other however.

San Jose State can throw the ball all over the field and is averaging over 75 yards more a game than Bowling Green but while the Spartans have that, the Falcons allow less than 106 yards per game through the air. Bowling Green gives up about 60 yards less on defense than San Jose State so a classic battle of offense versus defense will ensue in the nation’s capital. The place where things turn is that San Jose State scores 35 points a game which I think will be too much for Bowling Green to overcome.

While this game does boil down to which team’s strong side of the ball comes through, I do think that San Jose State just has too much offense even if Bowling Green does slow them down even a little. I’ll go with the Spartans taking home a 31-17 win back across the country. San Jose State will get their 11th win for the season, which is quite the accomplishment with Mike MacIntyre now departed as the team’s coach. This game should lead off a great day of college football for fans.
