There are three college football bowl games on TV today, Friday, December 28th. Purdue takes on Auburn in the Music City Bowl at 1:30 p.m. Eastern. Syracuse squares off with West Virginia in what should be an offensive shootout at the Camping World Bowl at 5:15 p.m. Finally, Iowa State and Washington State battle in the Alamo Bowl at 9 p.m. ESPN will broadcast all three bowl matchups.
These games will serve as the precursor to tomorrow’s College Football Playoff matchups. All Week 17 NFL games will be played on Sunday, December 30th.
According to OddsShark, the Tigers are a slight 3.5 point favorite over the Boilermakers. Syracuse is favored by two points over West Virginia who will be without quarterback Will Grier as he prepares for the NFL draft. The Cougars are a three-point favorite against the Cyclones in tonight’s finale.
The Mountaineers are expected to play both Jack Allison and Trey Lowe III at quarterback. West Virginia Dana Holgerson expressed his confidence in Grier’s replacements.
“I think Jack has been outstanding when it comes to a backup quarterback,” Holgorsen explained to the Orlando Sentinel. “The time that he’s been able to go in and play, I thought, he went in and played pretty well. Guys change quickly when they get out of the backup mentality, the backup role. Guys change. I’ve been excited and encouraged to see what he’s been doing with the practice reps that he’s gotten over the last couple of weeks. He’s attacked it the right way, and I’ve been satisfied with that.”
