Happy New Year: Bring on the B1G Day of College Football

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year, as it was a great New Year's Eve for Iowa and Creighton's basketball teams, with conference opening victories last night. Texas A&M pulled out the Chick-fil-A Bowl over Duke, with a late Pick 6 to overcome the deficit ...

Now, four B1G New Year's Games to open the year 2014!

Georgia vs. Nebraska at 11:00 a.m. on ESPN2 (HD)
It has been an emotional season for coach Bo Pelini and the Cornhuskers, as two teams face off 2014, as they did 365 days ago!

Heart of Dallas Bowl:
North Texas vs. UNLV at 11:00 a.m. on ESPNU (HD)
The Mean Green coach Dan McCarney is an old Big Ten guy; but they face a MWC replacement, since no B1G teams were eligible for the Big Ten bowl slot.

The 100th Granddaddy of them all will be a classic game of smash mouth, physical football with strong play at the line of scrimmage, as the Spartans return, after a 26 year drought vs. a Cardinal back in Pasadena for the New Year!

Fiesta Bowl:
Baylor vs. UCF at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN (HD)
