Lemmy and Bucky Pick the Bowls: December 26th


Little Caesars Pizza Bowl - Toledo (8-4) vs. Florida International (6-6) - 8:30pm ET - ESPN

Winks: For those people that don't like the NFL, the NCAA is giving you quite the alternative on Sunday night. Little Caesars is sponsoring a bowl game that features a team making the postseason for the first time in five years (Toledo) against a team that is in a bowl game for the first time ever (Florida International). This is some riveting stuff. Record-wise, I would usually go with Toledo but I'm not doing very good in the picks right now so let's change up the strategy. FIU is on a bit of a hot streak anyway, winning six of their last eight, so let's ride the hot hand and go with Florida International

LemmyWhen we think Little Caesers, we think of Pizza, Rome and Toledo Rockets football. Notice that Florida International is not a part of that corporate brand name association. Toledo makes another apperance in this pizza bowl and should make use of the shorter travel time and familiarity in this particular game. While FIU has been a nice story down the stretch, we still remember the brutal 0-4 start to the season and think that the problems they had against stiffer competition should rear their ugly heads in Detroit. Et tu, Toledo?
