A pair of 6-6 teams will be playing in the Music City Bowl in Nashville (today) on Friday, December 30.

Wake Forest, under head coach Jim Grobe, defied all the predictions in the Atlantic Coast Conference by going to a bowl game. The Demon Deacons were picked to finish last.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs were expected to have a better record and a better bowl. Head coach Dan Mullen has yet to turn things around in Starkville, Mississippi.

Both teams are vying for a winning season.

Wake Forest did not play well down the stretch as they lost four of the last five games. The Demon Deacons are playing in their first bowl game since 2008 and are looking for their first winning season since then.

The Bulldogs are 9-6 in bowl games, which included a 52-14 win over Michigan in last year’s Gator Bowl. This is the second straight year that Mississippi State has made it to a bowl game, the first time since 1999-2000 that the school has gone to back-to-back bowls.

With UD leading 51-49 with 1:02 remaining, Dillard converted a three-point play to extend the Flyers lead.

Holding a five-point advantage with 31 seconds to go, Dayton forced three missed Fairfield shots to clinch the victory.

After opening the Old Spice Classic with an offensive explosion, defense was the focal point in the Fairfield contest.

Dayton held the Stags to 18 percent shooting from three-point range with Fairfield converting only 2-of-11 attempts. UD also forced 14 turnovers and had seven steals.

After being held scoreless in the Wake Forest contest, Parker went 5-for-10 from the field and 3-of-8 from beyond the arc.

Josh Benson added nine points, while Chris Johnson and Paul Williams tallied five points apiece.

Roberts, Elflein commit to OSU’s 2012 class

 

Patrick Elflein

The Ohio State football program received commitments from two local players this past week.

The hiring of former Ohio State and NFL linebacker Mike Vrabel as the new linebackers coach helped one of the players make up his mind about deciding on becoming Buckeyes.

Lancaster linebacker Luke Roberts and offensive lineman Patrick Elflein from Pickerington North, told head coach Luke Fickell they’ll be joining the class of 2012.

The 6’3, 285-pound Elflein accepted the scholarship after Lakewood St. Edward’s Kyle Kalis decommited and went to Michigan.

Ohio State now has two offensive lineman from Pickerington in the 2012 class; Jacoby Boren of Pickerington Central is also in the fold.

Elflein also considered Purdue, Northwestern and Indiana.

Luke Roberts

Roberts, who is 6’2, 225-pounds, has a 4.3 grade-point average, chose OSU because of its business school and the hiring of Vrabel as assistant coach.

Roberts also considered Cincinnati, Purdue, Wake Forest and half a dozen other schools.

Artificial Turf coming to OSU’s Bill Davis Stadium

Ohio State baseball coach Greg Beals had been thinking for awhile about having Bill Davis Stadium’s surface changing from natural grass to artificial turf.

There are several colleges who have the the GameDay Grass surface that Beals desired, Duke, Wake Forest, Wichita State and pro teams, Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays.

Illinois, Texas and the Cincinnati Bearcats also play baseball games on artificial turf.

So, Ohio State will be joining in that group in the fall.

AstroTurf GameDay Grass will be installed in time for the beginning of fall practice. The turf will cover every part of the field except the pitcher’s mound, warning track, batter’s box and the base areas.

Former Ohio State baseball star Nick Swisher, a two-time all-Big Ten performer and current New York Yankees outfielder, donated a genorous amount of money to get the project started.
