The orange bowl brings two very surprising teams to the forefront this year. The Iowa Hawkeyes and the Georgia Tech Yellow jackets battle to see who will be named the Orange Bowl Champions. 

The Iowa Hawkeyes were not picked by the experts to compete in the Big Ten with the likes of Ohio St and Penn St, but Iowa did more than compete. They beat Penn St again and if not for the loss of QB Richard Stanzi the Hawkeyes could very well be playing in the Rose Bowl. 

Georgia Tech made the triple option popular again and ran all the way to the ACC Championship. Head Coach Paul Johnson has brought his offense from Navy and it has worked out great for the Yellow Jackets and now they go for a bowl victory.  

Georgia Tech can run the ball but look at the defense that the Hawkeye’s bring to the table. They allow just an average of 12 points per game on the road and can play great against the run. The Hawkeye’s were crushed the last time in the Orange Bowl and they look to avenge that showing. The Yellow Jackets are the popular pick and because of that the line has jumped over 3 and now is four. The Hawkeyes are 10-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 36-17 ATS in their last 53 games as an underdog. The Yellow Jackets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Bowl games as a favorite and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games as a favorite. Take the Hawkeyes to pull the upset. 

Orange Bowl Pick: Iowa +4.5
