The Wyoming Cowboys will play the Ohio Bobcats on Friday afternoon in the college football Arizona Bowl at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Arizona.

The Wyoming Cowboys are 7-5 this season after they lost to Fresno State by a score of 30-0 in their last game. Wyoming only gained 191 total yards and turned the ball over two times in the loss. Wyoming lost their last two games of the season, but did win four games in a row prior to that. The Wyoming offense is averaging 20.9 points per game with 127.8 passing yards per game and 187.8 rushing yards per game. Andrew Peasley has thrown for 1,388 yards, nine touchdowns, and eight interceptions for the Cowboys this season. Wyoming is in a tough spot with their rushing attack, as their top four rushers are expected to miss this game. The Cowboy's leading receiver is also missing this game. Wyatt Wieland was the second-best receiver for Wyoming this year, with 21 catches for 289 yards and one touchdown. The Wyoming defense is giving up 23.4 points per game and 369.3 yards per game.

The Ohio Bobcats are 9-4 this season after they lost to the Toledo Rockets by a score of 17-7 in the MAC Championship game. Ohio was out gained by a total of 390-262 and turned the ball over three times, including two turnovers on downs. Ohio won seven of their last eight games to end the season. The Ohio offense is averaging 31.9 points per game with 285.3 passing yards per game and 139 rushing yards per game. CJ Harris has thrown for 393 yards, one touchdown, and one interception for the Bobcats this season. Sieh Bangura has rushed for 940 yards and 12 scores, while Sam Wiglusz has caught 69 passes for 850 yards and 11 touchdowns for Ohio. The Ohio defense is allowing 28.4 points per game and 437.4 yards per game.

Ohio is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 bowl games. The under is 4-1 in Ohio’s last 5 neutral site games. Wyoming is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 bowl games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Friday games. The under is 5-0 in Wyoming’s last 5 games.

Wyoming comes into this game after being out scored by a total of 50-17 in their last two games, and they have an offense that is only scoring 20.8 points per game. Ohio has a much better offensive attack, but they really struggled in the MAC Title game and only scored seven points. This is a game between two opposite teams, with Ohio playing fast-paced and Wyoming playing a slow, low-scoring style. Even with Wyoming not scoring a ton, I like the over here. Ohio’s poor defense will definitely help the Cowboys offense; while I also think Ohio will be able to move the ball fairly easily. Take the over here.

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