Today’s second entry comes from another EA SPORTS Game Changer and administrator at The Gaming Tailgate: Tommy Gschwend, better known online by the alias gschwendt on Twitter and other forums. His take on the BOWL BLITZ INVITATIONAL here at STAT BOX STORIES is a bit different from what we’ve seen from guest contributors so far; we’ll still have the statistics and some screenshot highlights, but Tommy also recorded full game highlights of this showdown between Georgia Tech and Utah. Enjoy!
2011 marks the 77th edition of the nation’s second oldest bowl game–the Sun Bowl–with a match-up of the Utah Utes and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. These two teams have met once previously, also in a bowl game, during the 2005 Emerald Bowl. In that matchup, Georgia Tech won decisively, 38-10.
On the field, the two teams bring are lead by two recognizable offensive minds in Norm Chow and Paul Johnson. Chow’s offense is a Pro Style attack but makes good use of his mobile quarterback while Johnson is considered a Triple Option guru.
While Utah slightly outmatches Georgia Tech in the ratings between the two teams, the difference is minor which can lead to an anything-can-happen game. I took the reigns of the Yellow Jackets to see what I could produce in a grind-it-out option offense. Watch the full length highlights below or skip further if you want to see how the stat box tells the story.
Major kudos to Tommy for this unique take on BOWL BLITZ INVITATIONAL here for STAT BOX STORIES; sometimes, you don’t need words when you have the talent necessary to cut together a full game’s worth of highlights!
