The Players’ Tribune: Les Is More - December 22, 2017

Bowl Season is upon us, and Les Is More is back to tell you everything you need to know! Coach is once again joined by his daughter, Smacker, and close friend and former Michigan quarterback, John Wangler. Les begins the show by confessing his love for the Camping World Bowl (7:02) before previewing the game’s explosive matchup between Oklahoma State and Virginia Tech (7:43). Up next, Coach announces his lock of the week, which comes from the Michigan State–Washington State Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28 (9:46). The crew then breaks down the matchups in two battles between the Big 10 and the Pac-12 — No. 5 Ohio State vs. No. 8 USC in the Cotton Bowl (19:37), and ninth-ranked Penn State vs. 12th-ranked Washington in the Fiesta Bowl (23:07). Next up is the Orange Bowl, with Miami and its turnover chain taking on 12–1 Wisconsin. Finally, Les and his partners look ahead to the first games of 2018 and try to answer one of New Year’s Day’s biggest questions: Can UCF continue its undefeated run against powerhouse Auburn (35:52)?
