The Auto Zone Liberty Bowl features an SEC powerhouse in Georgia as they take on the Golden Knights from Central Florida. The latest college football odds for this bowl game have the Bulldogs listed as 6.5 point favorites with the total set at 54 this quality bow matchup.

On paper this game looks like a mismatch as the Bulldogs play in the superior conference and boast a NFL wide receiver in AJ Green. Young Aaron Murray leads the Bulldogs at quarterback and has had a year that he learned from and grew as one of the best signal callers in the SEC. How can Central Florida match up with that?

The Knights have one of the best ground games in all of football averaging a ton of yards, ranking 25th in the Football bowl Subdivision and leading the way in Conference USA as one of the best rushing attacks. The Knights won the Conference USA Championship and can play with any team in the country. Head coach George O'Leary has the Knights headed in the right direction and a win against an SEC team could spark recruiting, ushering UCF into a new level of college football lore. Although Freshman Jeff Godfrey is the quarterback this team is playing like seasoned veterans.

The Bulldogs are 9-19 against the spread (ATS) in their last 28 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game and 1-6 ATS when facing a team with a winning record. The Knights are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0 and 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.

The Bulldogs flop in the bowl game and Georgia begins to wonder if they should make a change at head coach.
