The name of the bowl game is a mouthful, but the Music City Bowl is one of the least exciting games of the bowl season. The game features the Tennessee Volunteers and the North Carolina Tar Heels, who finished at 6-6 and 7-5, respectively.
The Volunteers are one of the worst teams in the country to make it into a bowl game. At 6-6, Tennessee needed four straight wins to finish the season in order to be bowl-eligible. The Volunteers beat up on Memphis, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Kentucky, hardly a scary or impressive schedule.
Tennessee was 0-5 against ranked teams this season and lost its six games this season by an average of more than 20 points per game.
The Tennessee running game is not even ranked within the top 100 in the nation, and the defense gave up 38 points or more four times this season.
North Carolina started the season ranked but could not overcome the controversies and suspensions that plagued the Tar Heels throughout the year. The Tar Heels actually have a talented roster, and T.J. Yates is one of the better quarterbacks in the ACC this year. The Tar Heels will win this game easily, but then again, beating the Volunteers hasn't meant much this season.
