Leading up to the game, you will likely hear a lot of people say the UCF Golden Knights don’t deserve to be in a BCS game. But the Golden Knights have proven time and time again that they deserve the big stage this season. At the beginning of the season, the American Athletic Conference appeared to be Louisville’s to lose. However, a 38-35 victory on October 18 over the Cardinals put the Knights at the top of the conference standings. They never looked back. This was UCF’s first year in the conference and they were rewarded with the first BCS bowl in program history. Despite popular belief, UCF’s 11-1 record and No. 15 ranking is no joke. The team’s only loss comes against a tough South Carolina team—a

game UCF lost by just three points. This is UCF’s second consecutive double-digit win season and the fourth since head coach George O’Leary arrived on campus in 2005. The Golden Knights have a wellrounded gritty team that knows how to win close games. They rank 13th nationally in scoring defense with opponents averaging just 19.6 points per game. Just like their Texan counterparts, their quarterback is their star. Junior gunslinger Blake Bortles is projected to be a first or second round pick in the upcoming draft, and with good reason. His 6 foot 4 inch, 230 pound frame matched with elite ability has NFL scouts drooling. Bortles threw for 3,280 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2013 with a QB rating of 163.3. Baylor’s defense will certainly be keying on him. When Bortles goes, so does the UCF offense. Most analysts expect a blowout in this game, but they shouldn’t be so fast. The Golden Knights have only lost by more than 10 points twice over the last two seasons. Ever since Boise State beat Oklahoma in 2007, the Fiesta Bowl has been known for upsets. If UCF can force some turnovers and maintain good time of possession, they could be primed for the upset.

Baylor Bears Baylor offense didn’t skip a beat. Junior Antwan Goodley has caught for over 100 yards eight times this season and has a team-leading 13 touchdown receptions. In the backfield, Baylor has arguably the best running back tandem in the country starring junior Lache Seastrunk and freshman Shock Linwood. Seastrunk ran for 1,060 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2013, despite missing two games in the middle of the season, while Linwood 862 yards and 8 touchdowns in a slightly more limited role. The Baylor offense is so strong that sometimes it can overshadow the team’s impressive defense. Giving up just 21.2 points per game, Baylor’s defense doesn’t give up any easy points. How well they can contain UCF quarterback Blake Bortles will likely decide who takes home the hardware in the 2014 Tostito’s Fiesta Bowl.

From 1996 to 2009, the Baylor football program failed to put together a single winning season. But after years spent as the Big 12’s whipping boy, the Bears have finally become the big dogs. Currently ranked 6th in the AP Poll, the Big 12 champion Baylor Bears have a chance to make 2013 the best year in program history. No Baylor team has ever finished the higher than 9th in the AP poll, but the 2013 bunch is a Fiesta Bowl victory over UCF away from accomplishing that feat. The Bears walked most of their schedule with ease, scoring over 70 points on four occasions. But on November 23, Baylor had their lone slip up when they were blasted by Oklahoma State 49-17 in Stillwater. Baylor bounced back by winning their next two games, including a 30-10 victory over Texas to end the season and clinch the conference championship. Led by head coach Art Bryles, Baylor is the nation’s highest scoring team, averaging 53.3 per game. Everywhere you look on the Baylor offense, there are playmakers. Junior quarterback Bryce Petty has been dominant in his first season as a starter for the Bears. He ranks second nationally with a QB rating of 179.2 and eighth in terms of yards per game (320.3). To top it off, Petty has thrown 30 touchdown passes this season and just two interceptions. Much of Petty’s success through the air can be accredited to his talented group of receivers. Despite losing senior receiver Tevin Reese to a wrist injury mid-season, the

Michigan Wolverines The 2013 season was a year of woulda-coulda-shoulda games for the Michigan Wolverines. Aside from their blowout loss against Big Ten champion Michigan State, the Wolverines’ four other losses were by a combined 11 points. Needless to say, it is has been a frustrating year for head coach Brake Hoke and the Wolverines. Michigan was expected to compete for the Big Ten Championship at the beginning of the season. After a 5-0 start to the season, those dreams didn’t seem so far-fetched. However, they would go on to drop five of their next seven games and drop out of contention. Despite their record, Michigan has proven they can hang with elite

teams in 2013. In week two, they beat a solid Notre Dame team 41-30—a game in which they racked up 460 yards of offense. In the last week of the season, they gave the Ohio State Buckeyes all they could handle before falling by a score of 42-41. The biggest weakness for the Wolverines appears to be their offensive line. Their rushing attack is 100th in the nation and their quarterback, Devin Gardner, has been sacked 36 times. However when given time, Gardner can be deadly. The junior quarterback has thrown for 2,960 yards, rushed for 483 and has accounted for 32 total touchdowns on the year. Last game against the Buckeyes, Gardner had his best game of the year. Passing for 451 yards and four touchdowns, he brought the Wolverines within a twopoint conversion from a win. Since head coach Brady Hoke led his squad to a 11-2 record and a Sugar Bowl berth in his first season at Michigan in 2011, the program has regressed in each of the past two seasons. A loss in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl against Kansas State might put Hoke on the hot-seat in Ann Arbor. However, a win will give his program a little momentum toward next season. Being one of the most storied franchises in college football history, the Michigan fan base doesn’t get too excited about playing in these lowertier bowls. If they are not careful, they could fall victim to a well-coached Kansas State team.

Kansas State Wildcats star of the show. Mueller, a former walkon, is a menace to opposing offenses. He has accumulated 61 tackles on the year and is second in the Big 12 with 11.5 sacks. If the Wildcats want to win this game, they will need to pressure Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner. Luckily for K-State, Michigan has poor offensive line. Expect Mueller to end the game with multiple sacks and a number of hurries.

For Kansas State, the 2013 season started out a complete disaster. In the first game of the season, the Wildcats lost to FCS foe North Dakota State 24-21. After coming off a season in which they went 11-2 and played in the Fiesta Bowl, the loss had Kansas State running for the hills. Luckily for the Wildcats, legendary head coach Bill Snyder (in his 22nd season with the program) managed to turn 2013 into a respectable season. Aside from their loss against NDSU, the Wildcats took care of business against teams they were better than this season. Missing, however, was a marquee win against a highly ranked opponent. That being said, K-State put up good fights against BCS-bound conference foes Oklahoma and Baylor, and No. 13 Oklahoma State. A key player to watch will be junior wide receiver Tyler Lockett. Lockett earned first-team Big 12 honors this season after catching 71 balls for 1,146 yards and eight touchdowns. Against Oklahoma on November 23, Lockett set a Kansas State record when he racked up 283 receiving yards. However, despite those gaudy numbers, his biggest impact may be on special teams. Over the past three seasons, Lockett has compiled 1,760 kick return yards and four touchdowns. The Wolverines will likely try and kick away from Lockett as much as they can. On the defensive side of the ball, junior defensive end Ryan Mueller is the
