SALT LAKE CITY — It's the last couple of weeks of college football, and we're already wishing the 2015 season was here — well, sort of. The bowl games will be a nice end note to the local teams' seasons.
Utah State will get the ball rolling as it faces UTEP in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl on Sat., Dec. 20 at 12:15 p.m. MT. Agains the Miners, the Aggies look to extend its postseason winning streak to three.
Utah will follow as it faces Colorado State in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl on Sat., Dec. 20 at 1:30 p.m. MT. The Utes face a familiar Mountain West Conference opponent in Colorado State as the program looks for its first postseason win in three seasons.
BYU will travel to Miami to take on Memphis in the first-ever Miami Beach Bowl on Mon., Dec. 22 at 12:00 p.m. MT. The Cougars look to bounce back after last season's loss to Washington in the Fight Hunger Bowl.
The KSL sports team has been close in its predictions all season, and there doesn't appear to be much change for the bowl games. Matt Glade is the current leader and will likely win it all unless Memphis beats BYU and Jon Oglesby ties it up at the top spot. In that case, we all win a participation trophy ... you know, for trying.
Each week the KSL sports team will give a simple prediction for all the local teams. Weigh in on our comment boards whether you agree with us or have a completely different take on the games.
