    Rivals Ranks the Bowl Matchups

    Monday with Mike: Ranking the bowl matchups - College Football - Rivals.com

    We come in at 30 out of 35. As expected, the Rerun "Title" Game doesn't come in at #1.

    30. Pinstripe Bowl, Iowa State (6-6) vs. Rutgers (8-4), Dec. 30: A Big 12 also-ran meets a Big East also-ran. One selling point, though: That Big 12 also-ran kept Oklahoma State out of the national title game.

    Because OU is in it and the storyline is actually pretty interesting.

    Just like everything else BcS related - it's about the name of the school more than how they are currently.

    Re: Rivals Ranks the Bowl Matchups

    Honestly I don't really care what they all say anymore. Remember when we beat UNI by 1 and everyone said we'd win 2 games all year. Then we beat Iowa and everyone said we'd win 4 games all year. Now we're in a bowl game with the #2 schedule in the nation and still no one cares..just gotta get used to it for a while.

    Re: Rivals Ranks the Bowl Matchups

    Here's Scout's rankings.

    Scout.com: Ranking of the 2011-2012 Bowls - No. 18 to 27


    19. Rutgers vs. Iowa State
    New Era Pinstripe Bowl
    December 30, 2011 Bronx, NY, 3:20 pm ESPN

    Three Reasons Why You Have To Watch This Bowl
    1. Rutgers and head coach Greg Schiano have spent the season trying to turn the program around. With a great young nucleus, a win over the Cyclones would mean a second nine-win season in the last three and would be really, really big going into the offseason. Winning in New York City could be a big boost for local recruits.
    2. It’s Iowa State’s second bowl appearance since 2005. Good enough to blow away Texas Tech and ruins Oklahoma State’s national title dream, the Cyclones have just enough young talent to use this as a stepping-stone. Led by quarterback Jared Barnett, this is an up-and-coming program.
    3. Can the game be half as good as the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl? Syracuse’s controversial win over Kansas State was the best game of the 2010-2011 bowl season, and both Iowa State and Rutgers should play at a high level.

    And Why You Shouldn’t Care A Lick: Yeah, Iowa State had a few nice wins, but it also struggled to get by Kansas 13-10 and lost six of its final nine games. The Scarlet Knight defense could shut the Cyclones down cold.

    Three Names To Drop To Make Every Man Want You And Every Woman Fear You
    1. WR Mohamed Sanu, Jr. Rutgers
    2. LB Jake Knott, Jr. Iowa State
    3. RB Jawan Jamison, Soph. Rutgers

    Gut-Reaction Pick That Might Change In The Next Few Days On A Whim: Rutgers 35 ... Iowa State 31
