The holiday bowl should be a joy to watch as the upstart Arizona Wildcats will take the field against the Nebraska cornhuskers. 

For Arizona Stoops has lead them to a very good year and if not for a close loss to the Ducks they would have been BCS bowl bound as winners of the Pac-10. They rebounded quite nicely after that loss and managed to upset USC on the road and get an invite to the holiday bowl. 

Nebraska enters this game off a narrow defeat in the Big 12 Championship. They played toe to toe with the #2 ranked team in the country and have the best defense player in the country. The problem is the offense has problems getting started and often will cost this teams victories like they did in the Big 12 Championship. 

Both teams have stellar defenses and will have a fan base that will travel to see this bowl game. This game will be a close one with both defenses playing great all season and Suh patrolling the front line for the Huskers. The offense of the cats will be the difference. 

The Cornhuskers are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game. The Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on grass and they are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The cats win this on a late score and cover the little number. 

Holiday Bowl Pick: Wildcats -1.5
