Conference champions will be meeting for bragging rights in this year's GoDaddy.com Bowl as the Sun Belt Champion Arkansas St. Red Wolves will square off with the Northern Illinois Huskies of the Mid-American Conference.
According to our sports betting partner OddsShark, Arkansas State entered the week a mere one-point favorite and are now favored by 1.5.
The Arkansas St. Red Wolves punched their ticket to the second FBS bowl game in program history this year. It's the second postseason appearance for Arky State since the 1987 I-AA Quarterfinals. Their real reward comes in the form of incoming new head coach Gus Mazlahn.
Northern Illinois is on an eight-game winning streak after it lost its MAC opener to Central Michigan in a shoot out. The Huskies come into the bowl with a 10-3 record after rallying from 20 down to win the MAC Championship game 23-20 over Ohio University for their first conference title in 28 years. First year head coach Dave Doeren had a great deal of success this season as he led the program to its fourth-straight bowl appearance.
