Houston is off a very good year and they had the usual offensive explosion. They head up against the Air Force in this bowl and when a team plays a service academy it is never easy. The disciplined style of football will begin to wear on even the best teams in the country. 

Houston had a good run and one ten games but came up short in the championship game losing to East Carolina. Case Keenum has been an outstanding quarterback and has put up some big numbers against opponents this year. This is the time for them to make up for that game. The Air force academy has lost to many of the high power offenses they have faced on the season such as BYU and Utah. They will face another tough offense that averaged over 43 points a game on the season when they face the Cougars.  

Air Force has always been a tough opponent but they are in way over their head for this game against Houston. The Falcons are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog and 2-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Cougars are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss. Take the Cougars as they will win this game by double digits going away. 

Armed Forces Bowl Pick: Houston -4.5
