2014 Hawaii Bowl open thread

Take a break during your Christmas Eve festivities by chatting about the Hawaii Bowl with us.

Fresno State takes on Rice in the Hawaii Bowl (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) on this Christmas Eve. The Bulldogs are hoping to not have a repeat performance of their 2012 game against SMU.

Consistency has been an issue for Fresno State this year, especially at the quarterback spot, but Brian Burrell has improved his play to go from just awful to close to an average quarterback in November.

The key for Fresno State winning is sticking to the ground game and giving the ball to Marteze Waller and Josh Quezada. Rice does have a formidable rush defense which gave up only 151 yards per game, but they do give up 4.36 yards per carry.

Stop by and chat and talk about all of these games, and provide predictions.
