|Brick is standing right in front of Shreveport.|
Shreveport in December would never be confused for Iceland, but it can still be colder than many bowl destinations. Rain, sleet and even snow have been factors in the past Independence Bowls. When I found out that BC would be playing Arizona, I hoped we would get bad weather. So much for that. The forecast for December 31 is 54 degrees with 0% chance of rain. Now we cannot expect rain to slow the Wildcat spread or a chill to break their spirit. It will have to be Andre and our ground attack to break their spirit instead.
