Kansas (6-5) vs. Houston (6-5)
Amon G. Carter Stadium, Fort Worth, Texas
Line: Kansas -3.5
DOUG - Kansas -3.5
Probably the worst bowl game thus far, and a possible sign that there are too many bowl games.
Predicted attendance: 18, 000 (at best)
For my money, I'll give the nod to Kansas purely based on schedule strength and Mangina.
As far as Houston goes, I haven't acknowledged that program since David Klingler became a Bengal. Just thinking about the University of Houston makes me sick. That damn "run n shoot" conned the Bengals into drafting Klingler, and set back the franchise five years. I refuse to root for that program in any game.
Kansas 23 Houston 14

I really have nothing to say about this game. I'd probably rather it wasn't played. Kansas supposedly has a great rushing defense. Houston has a qb Kevin Kolb that probably would have been better as closer for the Braves than freaking Danny Kolb. Edge - KU
On a totally different note, i drove across the great state of Pennsylvania today and it cost me a whopping $19 in tolls. They require me to pay $19 just to drive on their roads. I don't like that.
Prediction: Kansas 23 Houston 21
Wager: None, these teams aren't worth my hard earned money
