Billed as the national championship game for us misfits, the duel Boise's Kellen Moore and TCU's Andy Dalton will have in the Fiesta Bowl could potentially melt your eyeballs.
The two lead not only their conferences, but are first and fourth in the nation, respectively, in pass efficiency rating. No other bowl can come close to promising that.
Moore quarterbacks a true passing spread and has two receivers just shy of 1,000 yards on the year (though Austin Pettis may have to miss the game due to a leg injury), while Dalton is deadly accurate off the play-action, which is set up by the three-headed TCU rushing attack.
If there's one kid that will be prepared against TCU's atypical 4-2-5 defense, it will be Moore. What he lacks in stature and strength he makes up for in the film room.
Dalton needs to avoid Kyle Wilson, Boise's senior leader at cornerback and a future first-rounder in the draft. The shutdown corner could functionally remove Jeremy Kurley or Antoine Hicks from the gameplan, and Boise's defensive line, though not spectacular, won't give Dalton too much time to check down.
If this duel plays out as advertised, the Fiesta Bowl shouldn't disappoint...any more than it already has, that is.
