Default Poinsettia Bowl-12/20

this one kicks off the bowl season folks! can't find any possible NFL studs to watch for, so this one will be strictly for the pleasure.

Utah vs. Navy
Dec. 20, 9 p.m. CST (ESPN)


40-second analysis: Somewhat mystifyingly, the Utes have become December's Team. They've won six straight bowl games under three different coaches, covering the spread in the last five. They're solidly favored over the Midshipmen in a game that matches strength (Navy's offense) on strength (Utah's D). Utes allowed only 9.5 points per game the last half of the season. Middies led the nation in rushing offense and averaged 40 points per game, but were just 1-3 against bowl teams this season. And their coach is leaving for Georgia Tech.

Players to watch per gbnreport.com

Utah vs Navy; Poinsetta Bowl, San Diego, December 20, 9 PM ET; ESPN: The 2007-8 bowl season gets off to a pretty good start with a potential offensive outburst with Utah playing Navy in San Diegoís Poinsetta Bowl. Unfortunately, while both teams feature explosive offenses, there arenít a lot of legitimate prospects for the upcoming draft. Utah, though, does feature a number of solid second-tier prospects on the other side of the ball including DB Steve Tate (#28, 5-10, 195), LB Joe Jiannonni (#44, 5-11, 235) and DTs Martail Burnett (#93, 6-2, 262) and NT Gabe Long (#94, 6-2, 300). Meanwhile, veteran WRs Derrek Richards (#26, 5-10, 175) and Brian Hernandez (#16, 5-11, 185) are a pair of steady enough possession receivers with Richards doubling as one of the better punt returners in college football. In fact, the Utes best players are juniors including QB Brian Johnson (#3, 6-1, 200), RB Darryl Mack (#6, 5-11, 220, OG Robert Conley (#66, 6-1, 320) and all-America K Louie Sakoda (#35, 5-10, 180). On the other hand, Navy isnít likely going to have anyone drafted anytime soon, but are fun to watch nonetheless with college footballís most efficient ground game featuring junior QB Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada (#10, 5-11, 195), FB Adam Ballard (#22, 6-0, 236), and speedy HB Reggie Campbell (#7, 5-6, 170).
