The Boise State Broncos will extend their streak of consecutive years with a bowl game appearance to 14 with a trip to the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, after finishing their regular season with an 8-4 straight-up record. The Northern Illinois Huskies ride a two-game SU losing streak, including a 34-14 loss to Bowling Green in this year's MAC title game.

GoDaddy Bowl

GoDaddy Bowl

The Georgia Southern Eagles have brought back the strong play that netted them a Sun Belt championship in their first season in the FBS last year, qualifying for their first ever bowl game this year with an 8-4 record. The Bowling Green Falcons travel to the GoDaddy Bowl for a fourth straight bowl game appearance after topping Northern Illinois in this year's MAC title game.

Louisiana Tech Dominating the Sun Belt

Louisiana Tech football NCAA

Louisiana Tech was just one win away from competing for the C-USA Championship, but instead will face the Arkansas State Red Wolves in the New Orleans Bowl on December 19. The Bulldogs should enjoy seeing a Sun Belt opponent as they are 9-0 SU in their past nine against the conference. 

Former Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel has found success at Louisiana Tech, as the senior completed nearly 62 percent of his passes for 24 touchdowns and just eight interceptions this season. However, he had his worst outing of the season in his last game, throwing three interceptions in a rout to Southern Mississippi.

The Red Wolves have been dominating to close out the season as the team has averaged 42.6 points in eight consecutive wins. Arkansas State averaged 5.0 yards per carry (28th in the nation) while finding the endzone 33 times on the ground (11th in the nation).

Georgia State Covering Coming Off a Win

Georgia State Football

The Georgia State Panthers ended their season in a flurry with four consecutive wins to book themselves a trip to the Cure Bowl, but that winning streak also extended a profitable run at the betting window as Georgia State is 5-0 ATS in their past five following a win. The Panthers will take on San Jose State on December 19 in Orlando.

Georgia State has been in the midst of a minor miracle season, as the team has won just one game in the past two seasons before going 6-6 this year. After getting manhandled in the early half of the season, the Panthers defense excelled during the final four games with the team holding opponents to 14.3 points per game.

The Spartans are just one of three teams to make a bowl game with a 5-7 record this year. Tyler Ervin has carried San Jose State’s offense with the senior rushing for 1469 yards and 13 touchdowns this season.  Ervin has averaged 175.4 yards in the Spartans wins this season, but just 84.6 in losses.

Ohio Enjoying Success vs the Sun Belt

Ohio State Football

Ohio may be coming into the Camellia Bowl with two less wins than Appalachian State, but the Bobcats have beaten up on the Sun Belt with the team going a perfect 5-0 SU and ATS against the conference. Ohio and Appalachian State will clash in Montgomery on December 19.

 

Ohio closed out their season right with three consecutive wins by a combined score of 101-52. The Bobcats rushing game exploded in those three contests with Ohio tallying 895 yards and four touchdowns.

 

The Mountaineers don’t have a lot of holes to exploit with the team ranking in the top 20 in points scored and points allowed this season. The sixth ranked rushing attack will get the headlines, but quarterback Taylor Lamb is sixth in the nation in passer efficiency.

Utah Easily Covering Against BYU

Utah NCAA Football

Utah may have limped to the finish line, but a bowl game against BYU could spell good things to end the season for the Utes as they are 8-2 ATS in their past 10 games against the Cougars. Utah and BYU will meet for football supremacy in the state of Utah when they clash in the Las Vegas Bowl on December 19th.

 

The biggest variable in this game is the health of Utah star running back Devontae Booker. The senior missed the final two games of the season with a knee injury that will reportedly take four-to-six weeks to heal, which could put him in jeopardy to miss the game.

 

The Las Vegas Bowl will be the last game that Bronco Mendenhall coaches BYU as he has accepted the head coaching vacancy at Virginia. The Cougars offense has been amazing this season (averaging 37.0 ppg) despite starting freshman Tanner Magnum at quarterback. After Taysom Hill’s injury, Magnum stepped in to throw 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

AutoNation Cure Bowl

Cure Bowl

Last season Georgia State and San Jose State combined to go 4-20, as they struggled in their second seasons under new coaching regimes. This year, the Panthers and Spartans both made a bowl.
