Live Game Thread: Kansas State Wildcats vs Michigan Wolverines in Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl

A tradition unlike any other: The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

Seriously though, it has been about 7,000 years (approximately) since Kansas State last won a bowl game, and that streak needs to end soon. Preferably tonight.

The matchup would seem to bode will for K-State. After a 5-0 start, Michigan lost five of their last seven, and struggled to find consistency on offense in a weak Big 10. Additionally, Michigan will be starting a freshman quarterback tonight, Shane Morris. It’ll be Morris’ first career start. So it would seem like the door is open for K-State to win a bowl game for the first time in a decade.

K-State comes into Tempe pretty healthy, including the return of Ty Zimmerman according to some reports. Add in a rested and healthy Daniel Sams – who had been dealing with a banged up shoulder – and a fresh John Hubert. Hubert should be pretty motivated as this will be his last game at K-State.

You can find the game preview here while you wait for kickoff. My prediction for the game is a narrow K-State victory, say 31-27. What do you guys think?

(Note: Look for random updates to this post throughout the night in addition to live thread below.)

 

 

I’m sure Michigan fans feel like this Maple Leafs fan right now…
