Independence Bowl: A reeling Ohio faces Louisiana-Monroe

A week ago I was seriously wondering if the Ohio Bobcats may not play in a bowl game, given that they lost three of their last four games and suffered numerous key injuries about their roster. This may have been the case ... until Louisiana Tech refused to play ULM in the Independence Bowl for whatever reason. And that's how Frank Solich got OHIO to a fourth straight bowl game.

(Maybe they'd have gone somewhere else. Who knows.)

It's important to remember that this is not the same Bobcats team that beat Penn State, just like it's not the same ULM team that took down Arkansas in the first week. Potentially the Bobcats defense could heal up and rebound back to their peak performance. They'll need to, because ULM can score fruitfully.
