Independence Bowl: Ohio vs. Louisiana-Monroe

Ohio: The Bobcats beat Penn State, stayed undefeated through mid-October with unimpressive wins, and then closed losing four out of five. Tyler Tettleton is playing. Thus, we get the obligatory “isn’t it great his dad was a professional athlete” article. We presume his father’s experience taught him the finer points of unorthodox batting stances and dipping.

Louisiana-Monroe: The Warhawks impressed early, taking Arkansas and Auburn to overtime and hanging with Baylor in a 47-42 game. They dropped two games in November to finish 8-4, though they were missing quarterback Kolton Browning at the time.

Better Things To Do: Louisiana Tech tried to keep the Independence Bowl on hold. The Independence Bowl ditched them for Ohio.

Gnome: Ohio brought and credentialed a gnome for the bowl game.

Recreational Prediction: ULM [-7]. Home-field advantage. Better team. Bowl Record ATS: 8-3
