Picks Trying Not to Suck: Bowl Special

Northern Illinois vs. Louisiana Tech (PK)
Independence Bowl
Shreveport, La.
Dec. 28

Talk about a dog of a game. This has to rank up there with the Rice-Western Michigan game in the Texas Bowl when it comes to the least compelling match-up of the bowl season.
From a handicapping standpoint, though, it's pretty enticing. Homerism isn't going to pretend like he knows anything about either team. I do know that the game is being played about an hour away from La. Tech's home in Ruston, where the Bulldogs went 5-1 this year. That's good enough for me--sometimes, it's better not to overthink.
Homerism Says: Tech.
