One thousand, eight hundred, seventy-three… that’s the number of points scored in the entirety of the 2012-2013 Bowl Blitz Invitational, 70 teams over 35 Bowl Games in one Bowl Season. With special attention paid to scoring plays in the tracking of this year’s games as compared with last year’s project, we are very excited to share with you the details of how the points ended up on the scoreboard in this year’s project; read on for all of the details!
One of the first pieces of data we’re looking at from the 2012-2013 Bowl Blitz Invitational is the Player of the Game data from the 35 Bowl Games played using NCAA Football 13 for this Bowl Season. In a sport that has become increasingly dependent on the quality of players at the quarterback position, one would have reasonably expected to see that position dominate this category from the project. Read on to find out if that expectation played out in this year’s games!
The 2012-2013 Bowl Blitz Invitational presented by STAT BOX STORIES continues with the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, which matches up the TCU Horned Frogs (7-5, 4-5 Big 12) and Michigan State Spartans (6-6, 3-5 Big Ten). STAT BOX STORIES owner Brian Parker took control of the Horned Frogs looking to bring home a bowl win for the Big 12 in TCU’s first season as members of the conference.
Perhaps no conference exemplified the ever-changing face of college football quite like the Big XII Conference over the past few years. The conference—in just over a year’s time—went from nearly being dissolved completely to where it is now, bidding farewell to Texas A&M and Missouri as they move on to the SEC and welcoming TCU from the Mountain West Conference and West Virginia from the Big East Conference to return the conference to ten members. It is this most recent realignment which sets up today’s game here at STAT BOX STORIES; a showdown between the Horned Frogs and the Mountaineers, new conference rivals.
After perhaps the craziest game I’ve ever played in any NCAA Football title yesterday between Miami of Ohio and Ohio, the hope was for today’s game to feature much more defense and strategy. Would these two schools be up to that task? Click below to read on and find out!
