The Liberty brings in a team from the SEC and Conference USA and this should be good for both of these teams as the locals can travel to this game and provide great support. Not only that but these teams should put on a good show for all to see. 

Arkansas finished the year at 7-5 and that is pretty good for the tough SEC. They possess a vicious pass attack that averaged over 300 yards a game and came inches away from beating Florida in the swamp. If not for a questionable call the Hogs may be in a different bowl game this year. 

East Carolina stunned the experts and upset Houston in the Championship game and finished an impressive 9-4 on the season. The Pirates are moving in a positive direction and do it with a balance on offense and a bend don’t break mentality on defense. 

This game could set up well for the Pirates. They just faced an explosive offense in Houston and now how to defend against it. The Hogs have a great offense but they have been sputtering only scoring 18 points on average in the last three games. The Pirates thrive in the underdog role as they are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog of 3.5-10 points. This line is close but it is just too many points in the long run to give this scrappy Pirates team. 

Liberty Bowl Pick: East Carolina Pirates +7.5
