December 21st Bowl Game Prediction – 2008

After a shaky 1 – 3 start on bowl game predictions, I hope to increase my winning percentage tonight with this one:

New Orleans Bowl

Southern Miss vs. Troy

Prediction:  Troy

Why?

It’s hard to pick a team that went 1-2 in Louisiana this season.  However, the Troy Trojans routed the last two teams they faced by over 30 points a game.  On the flipside, Southern Miss has won 4 games in a row just to quality for this bowl game.  Although Southern Miss has the most momentum going into this game, Troy has only lost to one unranked team all year.  In fact, 3 of the 4 teams that Troy has lost to (including:  Ohio State, Oklahoma State, and LSU) qualified for a post-season bowl game.  This game should be decided by 6 points or less.  Let’s see if this Troy team can pull it off tonight…
