Joe D's NCAAF Fiesta Bowl Money Maker of the Year
Kansas State vs. Oregon,
01/03/2013 20:30 EDT,
Score: 17 - 35
Point Spread: -7½/-102 Oregon
Today's winner is Oregon over Kansas State. This is my Money Maker of the Year.
If it weren't for one stumble by each team, you would be seeing Oregon and K State in the BCS Title game. Oregon ranks 2nd in scoring at 50.8 PPG and 4th in Total offense. K State posts over 40.7 PPG. This is most-likely Chip Kelly's final game as the Ducks HC. Wildcats HC, Bill Snyder is a direct opposite of coach than Kelly. Snyder is into ball-control and believe it or not, a disciplined regimen. The difference here is that Oregon strikes scores within minutes while K State takes their time. Outside of the Stanford game, Oregon fell into a "sandwich" situation and was caught off guard. Their defense is by far the speediest in the nation. K State has given up quick points to lesser adversaries. The Ducks play mistake-free FB and their intelligence and speed will create TOs. Oregon leads the nation with 39 forced TO's. This is a squad that is pissed-off that they are not competing in the BCS Title game and will take it out on K State. The Wildcats are 0-4 ATS their L4 Bowl games and 10-21 ATS their L31 non-Conference games. The Ducks are 6-1 ATS their L7 games played overall and 5-1 ATS their L6 games played vs. teams with a winning record. Take Oregon. Thank you.
