Frisco Bowl – Projection: Houston vs. North Texas
The potential matchup of Houston and North Texas in the Frisco Bowl is the best pre-Christmas tilt a viewer could ask for — two star quarterbacks battling it out in a race to 50 points.
Boca Raton**: Houston (AAC/C-USA/MAC) vs. FAU (AAC/C-USA/MAC)
The Boca has a bizarre setup now. Several bowls have fallback conference ties, in case one of their main leagues can’t produce enough bowl-eligible teams, but the Boca is just divvying two bids among three conferences. I figure an AAC team is a solid bet, while hometown FAU is also a decent pick.
