The Sun Bowl will feature two of the most storied college football programs in the country when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish play against the Miami Hurricanes. The latest college football odds for this bowl game as posted by Diamond Sportsbook International (DSI) have the Hurricanes listed as three point favorites with the total set at 47.

Offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland will be the head coach of the Hurricanes for the Sun Bowl. He will be replacing Randy Shannon, until this game is over and then Al Golden will officially become the new coach of the Miami Hurricanes.

Stoutland will have one decision to make for this game and that is who will take the field as the starting quarterback. The choice will be between freshman Stephen Morris or junior Jacory Harris as the team matches up against the Irish. Stoutland has said that he will announce his decision soon and he refuses to go with a two quarterback system. Whoever the decision is, they will lead the Canes up against the Irish and possibly into the future of Miami football.

For Notre Dame the future is now. Brian Kelly took over the program before the season started and although expectations were high, the Irish never met them. They did play well enough to get to this bowl game and a win over the Canes could help Kelly on the recruiting trail. The Irish enter this game with three straight wins and can make it four if they beat Miami. This is quite an accomplishment when you figure that the Irish played one of the toughest schedules in the country playing 11 teams with a record above .500 on the season.

The Hurricanes are 1-4 ATS in their last five Bowl games as a favorite; 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. The Fighting Irish are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0.

The Fighting Irish get the win and have a great recruiting season.
