Bowl season is underway. The Ohio Bobcats and Wyoming Cowboys will compete for postseason bragging rights in the Arizona Bowl at Arizona Stadium on Friday at 4:30 PM ET. Neither team was able to collect many points in previous contests, so their meeting could have been low-scoring.
Ohio played the Toledo Rockets four weeks ago and lost 17-7. QB CJ Harris didn’t make much of a difference for the Bobcats. Harris threw one interception on the pass for just 163 yards.
Wyoming, on the other hand, was expected to struggle five weeks ago, and it did exactly that. They found themselves reluctant recipients of an obnoxious 30-0 punch against the Fresno State Bulldogs. Wyoming were in a tight spot by the half, with the score already 23-0.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Ohio finishing the favourites, just 1.5 points. They’ve consistently made money against the spread when it’s favorable (3-1), so it might be worth betting now.
Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your mind as you watch: Ohio comes into the game boasting 18th-most passing yards per game with 285.3. The Cowboys display their own offensive firepower as his rushing yards per game averaged 187.8, ranking him 37th in the nation.
