The bowl season continues tonight on ESPN, as the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl has a 7:30 pm start at Ford Field in Detroit.

With a $1.5 million payout, Western Kentucky (7-5) plays local favorite, Central Michigan (6-6).

Three years ago, the Hilltoppers were 0-12 and in 2011, they finished at 7-5 but did receive a bowl invitation.

In 2012, despite a 2-4 stretch run, Western Kentucky found out that its 7-5 record was good enough this time around, but they had to wait until the final hours and minutes on December 2 that they’d be playing in the Motor City.

The Hilltoppers are making their first bowl appearance as an FBS member.

Central Michigan is making its fifth bowl appearance in the last seven years and first since 2009.

The Hilltoppers are led on offense by Antonio Andrews with 1,609 rushing yards and have one of the top tight ends in the country in Jack Doyle who is 6’6, 255 pounds. He has caught 47 balls for 530 yards.

Western Kentucky has the best defense in the Sun Belt Conference, allowing 342.8 ypg and 136.6 on the ground.

The Chippewas of Central Michigan started the season at 2-5 in the Mid-American Conference but was able to get bowl eligible by winning its final three games against Eastern Michigan, Miami (Ohio) and Massachusetts.

CMU has a very porous defense allowing 441.2 yards per game and 197 on the ground.

But the Chippewas have a deep and talented receiving corps with Titus Davis, Andrew Flory, Courtney Williams and Cody Wilson. At running back, they have Zurlon Tipton with 1,391 yards and 19 TD’s, QB Ryan Radcliff who threw for 20 TD’s and 2,905 yards.

REVISTED: Ohio State 31 Central Florida 16; Defensive mistakes, no QB pressure, new stars found

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Just like the week before in the Miami, Ohio game, the Ohio State defense made a boatload of mistakes.

The defense had trouble with pass coverages and long runs by the running back.

Freshman DE Noah Spence

On Central Florida’s first touchdown, Storm Johnson, the Miami Hurricanes transfer, rumbled 48 yards down the right sideline and would’ve took it to the house if he hadn’t ran out of gas at the Ohio State 12.

On the Knight’s second touchdown, on a fourth-down, a 2-yard pass to fullback Billy Giovanetti out of a three-receiver cluster formation. The fullback simply got open and one was arround to defend on defense for the Buckeyes.

Another area which was suppose to be strong was the pass rush with John Simon, Johnathan Hankins and Garrett Goebel around. But for the second straight week, was a no-factor due to QB Blake Bortles quick release to get the pass out. He was not hurried, was sack once and threw three interceptions only because of his careless, not the OSU pass rush. Simon, to be fair here, was double-teammed most of the day.

The defense with nine pass breakups was a positive sign.

Freshman DT Tommy Schutt

The defense did have its stars in Travis Howard, Orhian Johnson and Etienne Sabino all with the interceptions

The fans did get to see some new stars from three freshman, DE Noah Spence, DT Tommy Schutt and DE Adolphus Washington. Remember those names, because they’ll be the next All-Big Ten performers on the defense.

Jamestown Greeneview High School basketball player Evan Bradds decided to make his college choice now and get it out of the way.

At the end of verbally committed to the Ohio University Bobcats basketball program saying “that it was the right fit for him.”

Bradds, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound post player, averaged 17.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and shot 52 percent from the field as a sophomore last season.

He helped lead the Rams to their second straight appearance in the Division III district championship game, and was named Division III District 9 Player of the Year.

Bradds also considered offers from Miami (Ohio), Akron, Toledo, Wright State, James Madison and Albany.

If the name Bradds sounds familiar, it should. His dad, David, played at the University of Dayton, and his grandfather, Gary, a former legend at Ohio State, was an NBA first-round draft pick.

Bradds, who’ll graduate from high school in 2013, has the ability to be a big-time scorer shooter, he’s tough in the lane and can drive the basketball according to scouting reports.
