Foster Farms Bowl Matchup

The Utes opened their season on an impressive 7-1 SU run. But the club struggled down the stretch, losing three of its final four regular season contests. Utah has also produced mixed results at the sportsbooks, going 7-5 against the spread, including outright losses as betting favorites to California and Oregon.

It has been a different story during the postseason for the Utes, who have easily covered in each of their three recent wins. Utah paid out as 2.5-point chalk in a 35-28 win over BYU in last year's Las Vegas Bowl, and is an impressive 10-3 ATS over their past 13 bowl game appearances.

The Utes have enjoyed considerable success when favored by eight or more points, winning 14 of 16 SU. However, they have struggled to pay out consistently, going 3-6 ATS in their past nine.

The Hoosiers ended a seven-year absence from bowl season a year ago with an appearance in the Pinstripe Bowl, but they suffered a stunning 44-41 loss to Duke as 3-point favorites, and have failed to cover in their past two bowl game appearances.

Indiana is just 3-7 SU all-time in bowl game appearances, with their most recent win coming at the 1991 Copper Bowl, a 24-0 victory over Baylor. However, the Hoosiers have enjoyed success in recent games away from Memorial Stadium, going 4-3 SU and 5-2 ATS in their past seven overall.

It has been 14 years since these two squads last met. The Utes claimed a 40-13 win as 14.5-point chalk in September 2002, after posting a 28-26 victory as 2-point road underdogs a year earlier, and are 2-1 SU in three all-time meetings with Indiana.
