Wyoming and Central Michigan meet
The college career of quarterback Josh Allen will come to a close on Friday when the Wyoming Cowboys plays the Central Michigan Chippewas at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise.
Allen did not play particularly well this season, but has demonstrated the elite arm strength that scouts of the NFL are looking for.
Current projections have the junior being selected in the first 10 picks on the 2018 NFL Draft despite the down year, in part because of a diminished supporting class.
Wyoming comes into the Bowl game with a two-game losing streak after falling to Fresno State and San Jose State to round out the regular season.
Allen played in neither game after being injured in a victory over Air Force, but the long lay-off between the season finale and the Bowl season has allowed the signal caller to recover.
Meanwhile, Central Michigan arrives in town with a five-game winning streak as they overcame losing four of five earlier in the campaign.
Ball State, Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Kent State and Northern Illinois all fell down the stretch as the Chippewas rallied to finish second in the MAC West Division with an 8-4 record, one game back of Toledo in Conference play.
Saturday there are three more Bowl games with Texas Tech facing South Florida in the pick of the bunch.
The Bulls lost two games all season by a total of 11 points, while the Red Raiders finished an even 6-6 with an all-offense, no defense style of play that saw plenty of points scored at either end.
Meanwhile, Alabama are 2.80 to win the NCAAF Championship, with Clemson 3.25 and Oklahoma 4.50.
