We covered each of these games in their own streams, but for the interest of SEC and ACC bowl record-keeping here’s an update for this general bowl stream too.
Chick Fil A Bowl: The Florida St. Seminoles made Jimbo Fisher the first FSU coach to ever notch a bowl win in year one, winning 26-17 and sending the South Carolina Gamecocks home as Georgia Dome losers for the second time this month. Both FSU QB Christian Ponder and Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore left the game early with injuries.
Liberty Bowl: In the most boring bowl game of the season thus far, except for the final two minutes, the Central Florida Knights tipped away a last-second lob by Georgia Bulldogs QB Aaron Murray to win 10-6, give UCF its first-ever bowl win, and give Conference USA its first Liberty win. The Dawgs wound up with their first losing season since 1996.
Independence Bowl: Also limping in with their first losing season since ‘96, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fell 14-7 to option-mates Air Force. Two consecutive flubbed punt returns after the loss of regular return man Jerrard Terrant contributed mightily, but Tech’s defense couldn’t get a stop when it mattered. Tech has now lost five straight bowl games.
