Hawaii Bowl Matchup

The biggest question mark heading into this bowl game will be the status of Middle Tennessee's sophomore quarterback Brent Stockstill. Stockstill passed for 2,703 yards and 26 touchdowns with just five interceptions through Middle Tennessee's first eight games, leading the team to a 6-2 SU and 4-2-2 ATS record over that stretch. That impressive run of play came to an end in Middle Tennessee's 45-25 loss to UTSA as Stockstill left the game with a broken collarbone.

With seven weeks separating the day of the sophomore star's injury on November 5 from the Hawaii Bowl on December 24, Stockstill hopes to return but his status remains in doubt. The Blue Raiders will turn to freshman John Urzua to start if Stockstill is unable to go. Urzua has eight passing touchdowns and eight interceptions this season.

Sitting at 4-7 SU and 5-5 ATS through 11 games, the Warriors were in serious jeopardy of missing out on a bowl bid for the sixth consecutive season. But with narrow wins over Fresno State and Massachusetts, Hawaii earned a trip back to the postseason and its first appearance in the Hawaii Bowl since 2010. The Warriors are 3-3 SU in six all-time appearances in this bowl game.

Taking on the first head coaching job of his coaching career, Nick Rolovich did an excellent job in turning around a team that went 3-10 SU and ATS just one year ago. Hawaii improved to 6-7 SU and 5-8 ATS this season thanks in large part to an uptick on offense, going from 118th in the nation with 17.6 points per game in 2015 to 81st with 26.5 points per game in 2016.

With or without Brent Stockstill, the Blue Raiders will have the clear talent edge on the offensive side of the ball in the Hawaii Bowl. Middle Tennessee is 0-4 SU and ATS in its last four games played in the month of December, but this group is good enough to break that losing streak.
