43 bowl games
The Cure Bowl
Teams: University of Texas at San Antonio (USTA) vs. Troy
When: December 16th at 12 PM Pacific
Match-up Overview: These are two equally-matched teams in both skill and heart. Both have won 11 games this season, with Troy winning 10 straight after a close loss against App State early in the season. USTA is averaging around 500 yards per game while Troy’s defense has been allowing only 17 points per game. This will be a test of whether offensive or defense truly wins games.
Odds: Troy +1.5 as of 12/11/22
The Holiday Bowl
Teams: Oregon vs. North Carolina
When: December 28th, 5 PM Pacific
Match-up Overview: North Carolina is the ACC runner-up with a 9-4 record and quarterback Drake Maye who had 4,000 yards, 35 scores, and 7 picks this season. Oregon has a similar-looking season at 9-3 and an equally impressive quarterback in Bo Nix, who threw 27 touchdowns and ran 14 more. It’ll be a close game and ultimately up to which team can help their QB shine the brightest.
Odds: North Carolina +13.5 as of 12/11/22
The Alamo Bowl
Teams: Washington vs. Texas
When: December 19th, 6 PM Pacific
Match-up Overview: The Alamo Bowl is often referred to as “The Opt Out” Bowl, and this year is no exception. The top 3 players for Texas have opted out, which makes way for a more interesting game in terms of watching #12 Washington. Texas will be playing their QB2 against Washington’s elite Michael Penix, who went 4,300 yards with 29 touchdowns this season, making him the lead in total passing for college football. With high-scoring potential, this game could be a nail-biter if Texas decides to opt in for a fight.
Odds: Washington +6 as of 12/11/22
The Orange Bowl
Teams: Clemson vs. Tennessee
When: December 30th, 4:30 PM Pacific
Match-up Overview: Both teams have a shot at the Orange Bowl title this year as they are each going with a new QB than at the beginning of their season. Clemson’s is by choice with DJ Uiagalelei opting to transfer in 2023, but Cade Klubnik has the potential to lead his team to a W. The Vols Hendon Hooker had an ACL tear, so Joe Milton is stepping up and filling Henson’s shoes just fine. This game will be an intriguing insight into which team can better adapt and overcome.
Odds: Clemson +7 as of 12/11/22
