BUFFALO VS TROY | 12/22 | 7:00 PM EST
DOLLAR GENERAL BOWL — Troy is looking to reach double-digits in victories for the third straight season, while Buffalo is making just its third bowl appearance in school history. The Bulls are coming off a heart-breaking defeat to Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship Game, but feature an explosive offense led by quarterback Tyree Jackson, who threw for 2,857 yards and 27 touchdowns this season. However, my simulations say Troy, with its stingy defense, should not be an underdog in this spot. The Trojans rank 28th nationally in total defense, allowing just 345.6 yards per game. In my simulations, Troy is covering over 60 percent of the time. Take the points.
