Bowl Predictions: Why The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl Can Go To Heck.

Tyler Lockett doing Tyler Lockett things is well worth your time. - Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Bowls. There are a ton of them, and one of them is solely responsible for thwarting a matchup between the Georgia Bulldogs and Michigan Wolverines which many of us were hoping to see. That bowl is the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, sponsored by purveyors of crappy, bulk buffalo chicken wings. These are the guys who passed on Nebraska to take Michigan to face Kansas State, and I'm not sure I'll ever forgive them for that.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in 30 seconds or less.

It's played in Tempe, Arizona, has been around since 2012 (though in fairness it used to be the Insight Bowl), and is run by a bunch of people who clearly set out to ruin your bowl season, Bulldog fans. 7-5 Michigan (-3.5) is the favorite over 7-5 Kansas State.

It's Bill Snyder's comeback, the rest of us are just hangin' out on his lawn.

It's hard to believe that Kansas State is even here, given that at the season's halfway point they were 2-4, including a season opening loss to North Dakota State. Yet here they are, led by wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who's gone for an impressive 1146 yards on the season. In what was supposed to be a bit of a rebuilding year, and which began to look like a disaster,

It now appears that Michigan QB Devin Gardner will miss the game and be replaced by freshman Shane Morris. My sense is that if you gave those 3.5 points at took Kansas State, you've found some money to replace your holiday spending. Fitzgerald Touissant is now not only the best named Wolverine offensive player, but also the most valuable. Unfortunately the offensive line he'll be running behind has struggled at times this season. I just don't think Michigan will be able to put enough points on the board in this one.Kansas State has lost its last five bowl games, and hasn't even covered the spread in any of them. This is finally their year, though.

Dawg Sports Prediction: K-State 27, Mee-chigan 24.
