The closing football game of the Orange Bowls regular season was more reminiscent of that Ned Beatty scene from Deliverance than a day with a pigskin. Fortunately, today's FedEx Orange Bowlpromises to be better. And by better, I mean totally badass. The Virginia Tech Hokies face off against the Kansas Jayhawks. Dont be mislead by the teams pussy names, the monikers of the players more than make up for it: Dexton Fields, Victor "Macho" Harris, Tyrod Taylor. See? Badass.
But there's also this: the Jayhawks No. 2-ranked offense averages 44.3 points per game and features some lightning-fast players, and their coach could swallow a Christmas ham whole. The Hokies, meanwhile, have Beamerball, which sure does sound like something acquired during an unfortunate dodgeball injury, but is in fact not. It's actually what you call college football's No. 2 ranked defense. So, No. 2 offense meets No. 2 defense? It's badasserys perfect storm.
