Friday brings a bowl quintuple-header. Here are our plays.
[$25] Duke’s Mayo Bowl, 12 p.m. ET. (Maryland vs. NC State: Under 46) – The Wolfpack rank 115th in yards per play (4.6). The two defenses are legit.
[$35] Sun Bowl, 2 p.m. ET. (UCLA -7.5 vs. Pittsburgh) – UCLA ranks seventh nationally in yards per play (6.8), and Pitt QB1 Kedon Slovis hit the portal with star RB Israel Abanikanda opting out for the NFL Draft. The line has risen from 5.5 in two days.
[$20] Gator Bowl, 3:30 p.m. ET. (South Carolina vs. Notre Dame: Under 50) – The Irish ‘D’ rocks, and QB Tyler Buchner, returning from a shoulder injury, is rusty.
[$10] Arizona Bowl, 4:30 p.m. ET. (Wyoming +120 ML vs. Ohio) – Ohio QB/MAC POY Kurtis Rourke (knee) is out and will be replaced by C.J. Harris, who has accuracy issues.
[$10] Orange Bowl, 8 p.m. ET. (Clemson vs. Tennessee: Over 63.5) – The Vols rank No. 1 nationally in points per game (47.3), and the Tigers may air it out to advance the Cade Klubnik era.
