Syracuse vs West Virginia: The Picnic World Bowl is not exactly the playoff game that West Virginia started in 2018 a few months ago. This is a team with a Big 12 championship, but in a game against Oklahoma and Oklahoma in November, a brutal defeat left the climber far from Arlington. Therefore, quarterback Wigrill, wide receiver Gary Jennings and offensive forward Udenika Jos will skip the bowl to prepare for the NFL draft.
However, this game has at least one interesting angle, because it is against the old rivals of the Syracuse historical team. For Orange, there are definitely many things that can be played. Orange can Breaking their best season since 2001, they can also get their first 10 wins at the same time. How will the bowl of the camping world develop? If you are lucky, you can still have many interesting points and finals.
West Virginia: Another way to see this game for climbers is that it is almost an advance next season (for this problem, some bowl games start to work for many teams in this way). Grier is out, so head coach Dana Holgorsen will switch to Jack Allison and maybe even newcomer Trey Lowe to attack. Ellison is the former Miami quarterback and has only 10 passes this season, but has been coached as a backup for Greer. In these types of games, getting additional exercises in the bowl can help start the next season. How is Alison’s offense? For West Virginia, the end of the 2018 season may be disappointing, but this game can provide an optimistic feeling of 2019.
Syracuse: West Virginia is not the only team that lacks the key players in this bowl. Orange will not have a defensive end, Alton Robinson, and nose tackle McKinley Williams is only considered “personal reasons.” In particular, Robinson is a great loss, as he is second in the ACC, with 10 kills (after the death of Clelin Ferrell, leader in the Clemson conference, 0.5). Although his offense has received a lot of attention, the passing impact of Syracuse has been implacable, second only to Clemson in the CAC. While Cajuste travels to West Virginia, Robinson may be a factor that deviates from the edge. However, the absence of Williams itself is excellent, as the West Virginia team’s inside line has been suspect throughout the season.
Prediction of the game, choice.
This looks like a smooth game on paper before all the consumption of both sides. Although the two teams did not do everything possible, the losses of Grier, Jennings and Cajuste were enormous. The climber’s defense, separated in the last month of the regular season, will look for the right one, but Cuse’s quarterback Eric Dungey is a single-player program and should be the difference. Choice: Syracuse + 1.5
