The one thing that stands out about this bowl game is its name. Wow the pizza bowl? They seem to be getting more and more interesting every year but let’s focus on the game. In this game Ohio takes on Marshall to see who the winner of the prestigious pizza bowl will be.  

Marshall is going through a lot as they head into this game. They do not have a current player on a team that has ever played in a bowl game and they are off a very disappointing bowl season in which they fired the head coach. Now interim head coach Rick Minter will have three weeks to get his kids ready for this bowl game.  

Ohio finished the regular season 9-4, 7-1 MAC on the season.  The Bobcats lost the Marathon Mid-American Conference Championship to Central Michigan, 20-10, on Friday, Dec. 4 at Ford Field. They have a very talented offense and will be up for a big challenge against the Thundering Herd.  

The Herd’s defense has actually gotten worse as the season has progressed and they have allowed 36 points per game in the last three. That should get better with time to rest but with inexperienced kids in a bowl game and an interim coach the Bobcats have the edge. The Thundering Herd are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. MAC and the Bobcats are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games. Take the cats and surrender the small number.  

Bowl Pick: Ohio -2.5
