New Year’s Day is upon us and this always marks the day when some really big bowl games start with big conferences and big teams facing off against one another for bragging rights and a bowl win.

This year the Outback Bowl will get the Northwestern Wildcats out of the Big Ten squaring off against the Auburn Tigers out of the powerful SEC.

Auburn plays in a very tough conference and its no surprise that they struggled mightily this year as they are just not skilled enough to compete with the elite in the SEC and this year the SEC was stacked with talent with such great teams to include Florida, Alabama, Ole Miss, and LSU just to name a few. 

Northwestern had a tough conference in the Big 10 but they also had inconsistent play that plagued them for most of the season. They were inconsistent at times and would lose to mediocre teams and beat powerhouses. The passing attack was the strength of this team and they thrived as underdogs. 

The Wildcats are 21-6 ATS in their last 27 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0 and Auburn has a myriad of trends that will oppose them in this game. The Tigers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite. Auburn will not be able to stop the passing attack and slow down Northwestern. 

Outback Bowl Pick: Northwestern +7.5
