No cure

Liberty played in the Cure Bowl on Saturday-evening and tried to shorten playing time before taking a 34-34 lead over unbeaten Coastal Carolina. The fire didn’t expect the ball to hit the goal line.

This decision was taken while the Liberty was in the red zone:

Beach fight and… Gold Diver?

Like most, it was an interesting day at Myrtle Beach on Monday. Our favorites Marty & McGee worked on the sidelines and took advantage of the local flair while things got a little dirty on the field. Finally, North Texas did not do so well against the Appalachian state and its unique lateral support. To find out more about the ram, click here.

MVP come season so far

Analysis of cup matches

Healing Cup: Freedom 37, #12 Coastal Carolina 34 (OT)

It was worth the wait, especially for Liberty, who ended the most successful season in the history of the school thanks to Elijah James who blocked overtime in one of the strangest finishes you’ve ever seen. Both teams were scheduled to play in a long-awaited game on December 5, but problems with COVID-19 forced Liberty to suspend all football related activities, paving the way for BYU to take the field and face Coastal Carolina in one of the games of the year. But this one can do even better. Liberty, who finished 10-1 in the second season of Hugh Freeze as coach, came close to winning in the last seconds of the line. But Joshua Mack made a mistake on the 1-yard line when it looked like the Flames weren’t going to score a touchdown, but took a kick at goal to get Coastal Carolina out of the game as soon as possible. It was a heartbreaking defeat for the Chanticleers, who ended the game 11-1 and struggled with double-digit deficits throughout the game. They tried to become the first Sun Belt Conference team in history to end an undefeated season. In the end, Liberty quarterback Malik Willis was too strong for luck with his four rushing touchdowns and key-by-key play after key. The Flames played their first game since their 45-0 victory over UMass on November 27 and were far from unbeaten in their second full season at FBS level after a 15-14 loss to the state of North Carolina. — Chris Lowe


SERVPRO First Response Bowl: #n° 19 Louisiana 31, UTSA 24

Louisiana took a 17-point lead before UTSA captured the score at the beginning of the fourth quarter. At that point, the Cajun Ragin’ Cajuns attack imposed his will with a 72-yard shot in 12 shots that lasted 6:09 minutes before Trey Ragas’ run for the touchdown gave Louisiana the decisive advantage. The road workers fought bravely given the situation: They were without their head coach Jeff Traylor, who tested positive for VIDOC-19 earlier this week. The UTSA also missed seven key players. Finally, the game of the Cajun Ragin’ Cajuns – Ragas and Elijah Mitchell together for 225 yards – made the difference.

The Cajun Ragin’ Cajuns ended the season with 10 victories for the second time in the history of the school and the second straight season with an impressive 10-1 record. Louisiana coach Billy Napier has an impressive 20-4 record over the past two seasons. — sam hahn,jr.

Wooden cup: Georgia 39, Western Kentucky 21

With the exception of an early score from West Kentucky that gave Hilltoppers a narrow lead, the State of Georgia controlled the lead throughout the game. QB Cornelious Brown IV connected to seven different receivers and threw three touchdown passes, Destiny Coates walked back for 117 yards and the Panther defense made key play and became the first team this season to intercept the WKU QB Tyrrell Pigrome, who entered the game with the most passes thrown this year without a pickaxe. The Panthers intercepted Pygrom twice.

The Panthers ended the season on a three-winner streak, the first time in the history of the team that they ended the year this way. This is Coach Sean Elliott’s third bowl in four seasons and his second win. It is also the second victory of the Panthers at the WKU since they defeated the Hilltoppers in the Cure Bowl of 2017. — sam hahn,jr.

Camellia Bowl (25 December): Buffalo 17, Marshall 10

Marshall and Buffalo advanced to the Camelia Bowl, where the Bulls won 17-10 despite the lack of leadership of Jarrett Patterson. Kevin Marks Jr. scored on a 2 yard run with 1:09 over to give Buffalo their second straight win. Marshall’s quarterback Grant Wells reduced the Thundering Herd to 20 points with a chance to tie the game, but the Buffalo defense was able to seal the deal with a bag at the fourth attempt.

The Bulls had to settle for a racing game without Patterson, who didn’t play after a knee injury in last week’s MAC championship game. Buffalo quickly took a 10-0 lead, but the Bulls could do nothing against the country’s second-best defense until the final pitch of the game. Marshall’s fighting on the attack, Wells is only over for 114 yards. It was a disappointing end of the season for Marshall, who finished with three straight losses after a 7-0 start and a one-point lead from 15th place. – Andrea Adelson

New Mexico Bowl (24 December): Hawaii 28, Houston 14

Hawaii put pressure on Houston from the start, turning two early reversals into touchdowns that led to a 28-14 win. Although the Cougars tried to return to the game in the second half and brought the score back to 21-14 in the third quarter, Hawaiian Kelvin Turner sent the kickoff 92 yards out to put the game out of reach. Turner ended the game with 252 yards and two touchdowns. Freshman Hawaii coach Todd Graham won his 100th career game when the Rainbow Warriors finished their third season in a row with a victory.

As far as Houston is concerned, this year was as scattered as any other school during the pandemic, with eight games postponed, cancelled or rescheduled. But it wasn’t a great performance, and Houston scored 7-13 in his first two years as head coach Dana Holgorsen. Next year he will be put under pressure as he tries to steer things in the right direction. – Andrea Adelson

R+L Carrier New Orleans Bowl (23 December): Georgia South 38, Louisiana Tech 3

The Eagles arrived at the New Orleans Bowl in a difficult situation for a programme that is generally one of the most competitive teams in the Sun Belt. After three of her last four losses, Georgia Southern faced Louisiana Tech. Quarterback Shai Werts led the team with 71 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and 126 passing yards and a touchdown.

Georgia Southern makes a smooth blue electric guitar for touchdowns, and it’s often used against the Bulldogs. Defensively, the defensive line of the Eagles repelled the Bulldogs four times and was very well appreciated. — Harry Lyles, Jr.

Montgomery Bowl (23 December): Memphis 25, Florida Atlantic 10

Memphis took the lead 18-0, and for a moment, it looked like Florida Atlantic could take an 18-10 lead with a goal halfway through the third quarter. But the Tigers held on to win the Montgomery Bowl because the Owls couldn’t do anything on the field. In total, Florida Atlantic ran the ball 39 times for only 139 yards, an average of 3.6 yards.

Memphis quarterback Brady White scored his first career touchdown in a perfect performance, finishing 22 out of 34 passes with three touchdowns and only one interception. He ended his academic career with a victory, and it doesn’t get much better than that. — Liles.

Fault! The file name is not specified. Game


Zach Wilson threw for 425 yards and three touchdowns and added two touchdowns in BYU’s 49-23 victory over UCF. Boca Raton Bowl (22 December): BYU 49, SEE 23

Oh, what could. When BYU decided to play Coastal Carolina at the last minute, they knew that a loss would almost certainly take the place of the team in the Sixth Bowl New Year. And that’s exactly what happened. Instead, BYU arranged for a gig in’s Boca Raton Bowl against UCF, where the Cougars took another unbalanced victory in what has already been a very successful season.

Quarterback Zach Wilson delivered another brilliant performance and shows why he generated the Heisman buzz all year round. He made 26 of 34 paces for 425 yards and three touchdowns, and running back Tyler Allgeier rushed for 173 yards and a touchdown at 19 paces.

BYU took a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and 35-7 in the second quarter to decide the game early. — Kyle Bonagura

Idaho’s famous potato bowl (22 December): Nevada 38, Tulane 27

After losing the state of Ohio at last year’s famous Potato Bowl in Idaho, Nevada bounced back with an impressive season in which the Wolf Pack posted the second highest percentage of mountain-western victories. Despite a better record than Boise State, Nevada failed to qualify for the Mountain West Conference Championship and had to return to the Potato Bowl. Nevada did it this time and led from start to finish with a 38-27 victory.

Nevada took a 26-7 lead early in the second quarter and survived a short comeback of Tulane with quarterback Carson Strong completing the game 22-28 for 271 yards and five touchdown passes. Devonte Lee (105 yards) and Toa Taua (102) both rushed over 100 yards.

For Tulane, who has won four of his last five regular season games, this was his third straight performance in the cup – the first in the history of the school – but the first that ended in defeat. — Bonagura

Myrtle Beach Bowl (21 December): Appalachian state 56, North Texas 28

Prior to the season, Appalachian State was sown as part of New Year’s Six Bowl. After a 13-1 campaign that resulted in the Sun Belt title, the mountaineers certainly looked good. But the year of COVID-19 didn’t go as planned, and App State lost its second game of the year to Marshall and then spent most of October dealing with viral issues.

But if the 2020 season didn’t live up to expectations, the final at least served as a reminder of how talented this team is. The Mountaineers beat North Texas 56-28 for 502 yards on the ground at the Myrtle Beach Bowl, led by Cameroonians 319 yards and five touchdowns.

The fact that UNT fought back is not shocking. A handful of beginners decided to play a game of jeu de boules. But we can still see how the ground game of nations and mountaineers was not made easy by the UNT defense. App State can now focus its attention on 2021, as Sean Clark seems comfortable in the head coach’s office and people will return. — David M. Hale
