Louisiana-Monroe takes on Ohio in what promises to be a shootout. A Yankee Stadium tilt and a true battle at the Alamo are also on tap this weekend.
The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks hope to cap a great season with a win against the Ohio Bobcats in the AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl in Shreveport today.
The Warhawks started the season with a stunning overtime upset of the Arkansas Razorbacks, with the Hogs ranked eighth at the time. The 8-4 regular season is the first winning record coach Todd Berry has posted in his three years at ULM. Junior quarterback Kolton Browning has powered the offensive attack, racking up 27 passing touchdowns. Meanwhile, Ohio gets its offensive mojo from junior running back Beau Blankenship, who amassed 1500 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground.
Other bowl highlights this weekend include the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, which pits the Syracuse Orange against the West Virginia Mountaineers at Yankee Stadium, and the Valero Alamo Bowl, featuring the No. 23 Texas Longhorns and the No. 13 Oregon St. Beavers.
