Baylor vs. UCLA,

Score: 49 - 26
Point Spread: +3/-110 Baylor
I like Art Briles and his Baylor Bears to take care of business here against UCLA. Too bad the Bears could not put together more efforts like the one they exhibited against Kansas State back on November 17th when they took to the field as an 11.5 point dog and manhandled the Wildcats destroying any hopes K-State had of appearing in the national title game. I thought Nick Florence did a helluva job this fall stepping into the QB role following Griffin.
UCLA is still depressed about losing their conference championship and had higher hopes than this bowl game. In my opinion for the Bruins to have their best chance in this shootout is to put pressure on Florence and that could be much easier said than done. The Baylor offensive line did a more than reasonable job this season keeping Florence upright considering he tossed a total 451 times and was sacked a mere 16 times over the duration of the season. I see Baylor pulling away in the 2nd half unless the Bears have a horrific night with turnovers. Play on BAYLOR plus the points.
