My Prediction: Louisville has limped into this Bowl game by winning its last game to do so. Before that, they had lost 4 of 6. Southern Mississippi won 3 of their last 4 including an impressive win at C-USA Champion Central Florida. I don’t like taking cold teams in Bowl games especially those with 6-6 records. I will take the points in this one.
Southern Mississippi +3
