These predictions and previews may change and may not reflect my choices in pick'ems etc... NEW ORLEANS BOWL- DECEMBER 16 Troy St vs North Texas 12:00 ESPN I found this one really intriguing because of a couple of things... (1) The Troy win over LSU and (2) The quick emergence of UNT the past 2 years with their current HC at the helm... I really like Troy in this one who has already cemented their 2nd straight 10 win season. They have the talent pool to make quick work of this one if they execute. Troy by 10. FRISCO BOWL- DECEMBER 20 Louisiana Tech vs SMU 7:00
Greenville vs Sulphur Springs Greenville is coming off an embarrassing loss at Longview where they seemingly didn't even get off the bus. Sulphur Springs is coming off a victory over Mount Pleasant. Last time these teams got together, Sulphur Springs started taking knees...with SIX minutes left in the game. It was not well received in Lion Land. This is always a heated rivalry that has been heavily slanted towards the Wildcats as of late. (Sorry 'bout the SS logo...couldn't find a large one, so had to blow this one up to size, hence the jaggedness.)
This game kicks off District 15-5A play this year. Greenville has ended a few losing streaks in nondistrict play (first overall win, first road win, first home win, first nondistrict win, all since 2009) but beginning this week, the games now count towards making the playoffs and the degree of difficulty rises exponentially. Greenville has not defeated the Tigers in the last decade, losing their last four contests, the most recent occurring in 2011, falling 21-14. Greenville's main motivation this season has been simply to snap the insanely long losing streak they had coming into this seas
