Prediction & Game Preview To Come
Citrus Bowl Stadium, Orlando, FL, 7:00 ET, CBS Sports Network
UCF, American Athletic, 6-6
How are the Knights doing it? The defense has been just good enough against the bad teams to survive. You have to beat the teams on your schedule, but UCF doesn’t have a win over a bowl bound team. Head coach Scott Frost is in the spotlight - he turned the team around from an 0-12 2015 to 6-6 in just one year. Now he’s considered one of the brightest young head coaches around – he’s a rental for UCF.
Arkansas State, Sun Belt, 6-5
The Red Wolves managed to roar after a miserable 0-4 September, getting a piece of the Sun Belt title winning seven of their last eight games. The ground game wasn’t up to its normal ASU snuff, but the defense was able to pick up the slack with a secondary that shut down the mediocre Sun Belt passing games, and with enough takeaways to overcome an offense that didn’t go on enough good drives.
