Utah State Aggies: Looking for bowl redemption
Utah State is working for its first post-season win in 19 years and some redemption after last year’s bowl loss at the same stadium. Leading by 13 over Ohio late in the third quarter last year, the Aggies wound up on the losing end 24-23 on a touchdown with just 13 seconds left in the game. Now, the Aggies are in position to grab a post-season win after finishing the regular season 10-2 overall and 6-0 in the WAC.
Toledo Rockets: Working towards 10-win season
Toledo has not posted a 10-win season in over 10 years, but the Rockets have a shot after finishing the regular season with a 9-3 overall record and a 6-2 mark in the MAC. The Rockets were victorious in their bowl game last season against Air Force in the Military Bowl by a score of 42-41. Toledo is 9-3 all-time in bowl games. At one point, Toledo reeled off eight straight wins after losing its opening game.
