Saturday's menu includes an appetizer of Dutch soccer, a main dish of college football, and desserts of NBA, NHL, and college basketball. Every Streaker should find at least one flavor to his liking.
We're using an Eredivisie match this morning so that early-risers can follow along with the action via ESPN360. Eindhoven hosts Twente, and the visitors get the draw included. Succes gewenst!
At 1:00 PM ESPN's bowl day kicks off when West Virginia takes on UNC in the Meineke Bowl. The game is in Charlotte, so we surmise that the crowd will be behind the Tar Heels. For the Mountaineers, senior QB Pat White hopes to finish his college career as a winner.
Three hours later, the Mountaineers return to the Streak - this time on the hardwood, as they visit a tough Ohio State team. Early returns favor the Buckeyes by about 25-1.
Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, FL: Wisconsin vs. Florida State
Two teams that prefer to run the ball clash in this 4:30 ESPN game. The key will be controlling the line of scrimmage, and the Seminoles are counting on their speed players to get around the huge offensive line of the Badgers. The trash talk started early for this game, but now its time for the walk to be walked.
At 8:00 PM, in an unusual proposition, Streakers have the option of predicting Best's best. California star tailback Jahvid Best has multiple runs over 50 yards this year - will he rip off a carry of 35+ yards against a stingy Miami Hurricane defense? So far Streakers are voting no, but how many of them saw Best run for more than 300 yards in only 35 minutes in his most recent major college football game?
In a far-too-common occurrence, Streakers were once again below 50%. You can blame this one on the Florida Atlantic Owls, who defeated the Central Michigan Chippewas despite being backed by only 3% of the Streakers who made a selection in the Motor City Bowl.
