The University of South Florida Bulls battle the Clemson Tigers in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in what should be a tightly contested game. The latest college football odds for this bowl game have the Clemson Tigers listed as slight six point favorites with the total set at 40.5.

This game will be all about changes as this will be the last year of the Meieneke car Care bowl as next year it will take the name of the Belk Bowl. However there could be another change, but this one could be on the on the field.

South Florida comes into this game with a question at the most pivotal position on the field. Head coach Skip Holts has to decide who his signal caller will be leading up to this bowl game. Holtz can choose sophomore B.J. Daniels, but was quoted earlier in the season saying that if he had a better option he would use it. Not exactly a glowing endorsement for the mobile passer.

His other option is freshman Bobby Eveld, the walk-on from Jesuit High that impressed in a few games this season when he replaced Daniels. Whoever gets the start for the Bulls will have to be on the lookout for Da'Quan Bowers.

Bowers is a top five draft pick in the NFL and a terror on the defensive line. Bowers could easily set the schools record for sacks in a season in this bowl game and is an anchor on a defensive line that is very good at stopping the run, this makes the quarterback for USH even more of a pivotal player.

The Bulls are 22-10 against the spread (ATS) in their last 32 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 against the ACC. The Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last six neutral site games, 1-5 ATS in their last six Bowl games as a favorite, and 1-4 ATS in their last five bowl games overall.

The Tigers have a strong defensive line, but other than that are weak. South Florida will use this game as a building block and could get the upset win over Clemson.
