NCAA Football: Las Vegas Bowl-Brigham Young vs Utah Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Jeremy and Matt are back to put a bow on the coaching searches within the conference and then dive deep into the bowl games that kick things off on Saturday.

We discuss the Las Vegas Bowl which is one of the better matchups in all of the bowl season as San Diego State is taking on Houston. There are a lot of things to like about the Cougars but they have a coaching change with Tom Herman heading for Texas and then promoting from within by naming Major Applewhite the head coach.

The New Mexico Bowl has the Lobos hosting UTSA who is making their first ever bowl game in the Roadrunners brief FBS history. The Lobos have the edge in their ground game which is capable of big plays, while the UTSA offense is their best when they are balanced and they will need to do that if they are going to pull off the upset.
