Utah State (-111) @ N. Illinois: Utah State's defense is legit ranked 7th allowing 17 PPG and during their 5 game win streak only allowing 10 PPG. Their offense isn't too shabby either scoring 32 PPG. NIU had dreams of another BCS bowl but lost to Bowling Green in the MAC championship. I think NIU will be suffering from a non-BCS hangover and really won't want to be in this bowl. Look for Utah St's defense to contain NIU's running game and win a close one.
Hawks (-3) @ Cavs: Atlanta is that third team in the East that could cause the big 2 some issues. We saw that most recently as they took the Heat to OT. They are playing efficient basketball and will have almost 10 more scoring opportunities to score than the Cavs. Look for the Hawks to cover easily.
Good Luck All!
