Prediction & Game Preview To Come
Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA, 8:30 ET, FOX
Utah, Pac-12, 8-4
The Utes were the last team to beat USC. Other than that, it’s been a non-descript season, failing to come up with a win over a bowl-bound team the rest of the way, but with a few fun performances. The return of RB Joe Williams from a retirement of a few games, the ground game fits the tough-guy attitude of the Utah team perfectly, but there’s not enough of a passing attack to bomb away consistently. There were chances late to get into the Pac-12 title picture, but losses to Oregon and Colorado ended that. A bowl win is a must, or this year will suddenly seem sour.
Indiana, Big Ten, 6-6
Well, now what? With head coach Kevin Wilson shockingly dismissed, the program is in limbo as it needs to find another coach who can crank up the same success, only without the drama and apparent issues. This isn’t your older brother’s Indiana team – it plays defense – but with the entire offensive backfield returning, the bowl practice season is vital no matter who the next head man will be.
