The Papa John’s.com Bowl is not the most glamorous bowl game that you will see this year but they managed to get some quality teams this year to play in this game. The SEC and the Big East will have two solid representatives in this contest this year. 

The Huskies of Connecticut will face the South Carolina Gamecocks. For the Huskies it has been a roller coaster year and they had to deal with plenty of adversity to include the death of one of their defensive players. They responded very well as they finished 7-5 on the season and made plenty of money for bettors finishing at a 10-2 clip against the spread. 

South Carolina had the tough challenge of playing in the most talented conference in the country but managed to put up a a good fight as they finished 7-5 on the season. Steve Spurrier had his struggles on the offensive side of the ball as his team just averaged 21 points a game and that is not good enough to compete in the SEC. 

This game should be a good one but the edge is to the Huskies. They averaged 39 points a game in the last three games and played well on the road finishing 6-0 on the year. With the defensive numbers about even look for the gamecocks to be outplayed and out coached. The Huskies are 35-17-1 ATS in their last 53 non-conference games and 7-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Gamecocks are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and will lose this game.
