In a Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve, we'll have the privilege of watching two of the better offenses in the country, one lead by June Jones (former Hawaii coach) and one by Derek Carr (brother of David Carr). Both offenses can score lots of points, and can do it on the ground and through the air.
Couple that with two likely Top 64 picks defensively for both teams and 10 possible...
