New Era Pinstripe Bowl Matchup

Following seven straight losing seasons Indiana just hoped to win six games this season and make a bowl. And thanks to consecutive victories to finish the season the Hoosiers made it. Indiana started 4-0, but then lost six games in a row, several in frustrating fashion, including four by one score or less. But the Hoosiers then won at Maryland and at Purdue to finish 2-6 in the rough Big Ten East, 6-6 overall.

Indiana finished the season on a 3-0 ATS run, and on a 6-0 run on the OVER, as the last six Hoosiers games averaged a very healthy 83 total points.

On the ACC side of this matchup Duke seemed a candidate to regress this season, but instead is playing in a bowl for the fourth straight year. Duke started 6-1, and 3-0 in ACC play, but then came that brutal robbery of a victory at Miami, which began a four-game losing streak. The Blue Devils then salvaged some semblance of success, winning at Wake Forest to finish at 4-4 in conference play.

Duke is only 1-4 ATS over its last five games, and 5-1 on the OVER during the second half of this season.

The Hoosiers are playing in their first bowl in five seasons under head coach Kevin Wilson, and their first since losing the Insight Bowl to Oklahoma State back in 2007.

Indiana's Jordan Howard, who leads the team in rushing with 1,213 yards, hurt his knee in the Maryland game and is questionable to play in this bowl.

Duke is 0-3 SU but 2-1 ATS in bowls under head coach David Cutcliffe, and could have won any of those games. Last year the Blue Devils led Arizona State 31-30 with five minutes to go in the Sun Bowl, but lost 36-31.
