Surprisingly, these teams haven't played since 2015 and that one was all Alabama, as the Tide came away with a 38-10 victory. It's bound to be a little bit closer this time around, as the teams are fairly similar.

The final college bowl game of the day is the Sugar Bowl between Clemson and Alabama. Late money has come in on Alabama and pushed the line to Tide -3 (-120) and the total on the game is 47, which is a bit lower than we've seen in the championship game the past two seasons, as both of those games easily sailed over the total.

A 3-3 day on Friday, as we're still laboring a bit in the bowl games and sit at 16-15 playing every game, which isn't the best strategy, but we'll go at it again Saturday, beginning with the Taxslayer Bowl from Jacksonville, where Louisville is favored by 7 over Mississippi State and the total has climbed to 63.

An interesting game between Northwestern and Kentucky in the Music City Bowl is the third game of the day on Friday and at first glance, this one looks to be a bit of a mismatch, as Northwestern was 9-3 straight-up and against the spread, while Kentucky was 7-5 straight-up and a dismal 3-9 ATS.
