Wyoming/Kent State, Kent State +3
The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. I think while Wyoming might be the better team, the better team doesn’t always win. Wyoming was wildly inconsistent down the stretch and is missing one of their top receivers in this one, their defense is the one to watch but I don’t think that will faze Kent State. The Golden Flashes have played great down the stretch covering in 4 of their last 6 and maintaining a Top 12 offense in College Football. They started the season with big time opponents to see what that level of play looks like and now their in a bowl game against a team that isn’t near the B1G/SEC status. I’m going to take +3 for the insurance but don’t be surprised by a Kent State win.
UTSA/San Diego St, UTSA +3
The Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl is a G5 Clash of the Titans. I was really debating on just taking an O/U in this one but I think I’m confident in the Meeps. Their offense has been electric all year, and even without their All-American running back, the back up, Brenden Brady, is no stranger to a heavy workload and has shown up big time in games this season already. San Diego State is a very good defensive team but has shown hiccups including their devastating loss to Utah State in the Mountain West Chip. They also have several injury questions marks including their starting QB and TE. The Meeps have only lost one game this season, have covered the spread in 7 of their last 8, and are playing this game in Texas. I like the Meeps to help me out one last time.
