The Kent State Golden Flashes will take on the Wyoming Cowboys in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Tuesday afternoon.

The Wyoming Cowboys are 6-6 this season and finished the season losing 6 of their last 8 games. Wyoming only went 2-6 in conference play after opening the season 4-0. Wyoming beat Montana State, Northern Illinois, Ball State, UCONN, Colorado State, and Utah State this season and lost to Air Force, Fresno State, New Mexico, San Jose State, Boise State, and Hawaii. Wyoming is averaging 23.2 points per game and is giving up 22.5 points per game against, while also averaging 165.7 passing yards per game and 195.1 rushing yards per game. Levi Williams has completed 57.8% of his passes for 863 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. Xazavian Valladay has rushed for 984 yards and 5 touchdowns for the Cowboys.

The Kent State Golden Flashes are 7-6 this season and lost to Northern Illinois in the MAC conference championship game by a score of 41-23. Kent State finished the season winning 4 of their last 6 games, including that loss in the conference championship game. Kent State has beaten VMI, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Ohio, Northern Illinois, Akron, and Miami (OH) this season and lost to Texas A&M, Iowa, Maryland, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, and Northern Illinois. Kent State is averaging 32.6 points per game and is giving up 35.1 points per game against this season, while also averaging 237.5 passing yards per game and 243.3 rushing yards per game. Dustin Crum has completed 64.2% of his passes for 2,922 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions for the Golden Flashes this season. Marques Cooper has rushed for 1,080 yards and 11 touchdowns, while Dante Cephas has caught 78 passes for 1,124 yards and 8 touchdowns for Kent State.

Kent State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games. The over is 9-4 in Kent State’s last 13 games as an underdog. Wyoming is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 bowl games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games. The over is 4-1 in Wyoming’s last 5 games overall.

This should be a very entertaining game to watch as plenty of points should be scored. Kent State scored plenty of points this season, while also giving up a lot of points. Wyoming played in lower scoring games this year, but still should have no problem moving the ball against a bad Kent State defense. I like the over in this one.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
