This bowl could be one of the most exciting games of the week. Ohio and Utah State face off, and both teams were incredibly close to having stellar seasons—losing a combined seven games by seven or less points.
They only have nine total losses.
The X factor in this game is USU’s running back Robert Turbin, who has quietly rushed for over 1,400 yards and 118 per game. Ohio is one of the most balanced and complete teams in the country, and Tyler Tettleton could emerge as a star in the near future.
Based purely on momentum heading into the game, the edge goes to the Aggies because they have won five straight, whereas the Bobcats lost a heartbreaker in the MAC title game to Northern Illinois.
