University of Houston bowl projections: Week 6


#1

I would be okay with the Frisco Bowl if we get to play Colorado (PAC 12)


(Jay C.) #2

If not the Peach Bowl as the G5 rep, Frisco vs. Pac-12 would be next best realistic option to me.


(Bryant Hargrave) #3

Frisco vs. Colorado = not bad, Frisco Bowl with the MAC= super lame


(Patrick) #4

Only way we’d get Colorado is if 9 teams are eligible from the Pac-12 or 8 teams are eligible and the Pac-12 misses the playoffs. Of course, Colorado just lost at home against Arizona so there’s no guarantee that they’ll be bowl eligible.


#5

Too early in the season, and too much football yet to be played, to not still be dreaming about NY6 bowl.


(Cary) #6

Wait… What? So we should be dreaming about NY6?


#7

I suppose it beats talking about the Birmingham or Frisco Bowls. But just by a little.


(Mark) #8

Maybe some bowl will come out of nowhere like last year.


(J V ) #9

Frisco over bham if that is the choice.


(Cary) #10

Houston could fill that stadium with their fans all by themselves.


(Patrick) #11

Yep, prefer not to play in a soccer stadium.


(Cary) #12

It is a nice stadium. I have been there for seminars in the club and to games for FC Dallas. We just travel really well typically and it seats 20k.


(Patrick) #13

That’s fine, just prefer not to play in a soccer stadium. Bad memories of playing in BBVA and the turf there.


(Jim Fletcher) #14

I’d like another shot at Colorado after our Bluebonnet Bowl loss to them in another lifetime. They had a great RB in Charles Davis and we had Robert Newhouse. We fell behind but were on the comeback, had just made a defensive stop and fell victim to a fake punt which completely changed the course of the game.


#15

Other than size most soccer stadiums are fine. The problem with BBVA is it was designed and built to block any breeze from getting to the field which makes it a h**l hole to play in.


(James Duncan) #16

Just looked it up - Dec 31 1971 only matchup vs the Buffs losing 17-29.

Would be a great opponent.


(Mark Jacob) #17

Nice long drive. When you finally hit Dallas, just keep going another hour. It’s way north. Go Coogs!


#18

The drive is not too bad for me. When I’m going that way I still have two states to go when I get past Dallas. When I get to OKC I would think about being able to drive up in the morning, attend the game, spend the night, and drive back on Sunday.


#19

Don’t think they could get a P5 team to play in a soccer stadium, just saying.
