College Football Show: Orange, Cotton bowl previews
The latest edition of The College Football Show hosted by John Niyo and Tony Paul has The Detroit News writers analyzing two postseason extravaganzas involving our state teams.
In the Orange Bowl, No. 6 Michigan faces No. 10 Florida State on Friday (8 p.m. ESPN/WWJ). The Wolverines (10-2) desperately want that 11th win to help erase the memory of the devastating double-overtime loss to rival Buckeyes, which knocked them out of the College Football Playoff.
■ Michigan's Kyle Kalis relives the season's emotional roller coaster -- 1:05
■ UM beat writer Angelique S. Chengelis discusses if there is any hangover effect from the Ohio State loss, how the Wolverines have to stop the Seminoles' mercurial Dalvin Cook, and if the Michigan-Florida State matchup will be a lopsided affair -- 2:19
In the Cotton Bowl, No. 12 Western Michigan takes on No. 8 Wisconsin on Monday (1 p.m., ESPN). The Broncos (13-0) are undefeated while the Badgers (10-3) only only lost to top-six teams (Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State).
Niyo and Paul delve into WMU coach P.J. Fleck's future, which reportedly includes him working on extension with the Kalamazoo school. The pair also weighs in on the recent trend of college players skipping bowl games altogether.
