The 11-1 Fresno State Bulldogs take on the University of Southern California Trojans in this bowl matchup. The Bulldogs have had a fantastic season, only losing their last game of the season and therefore missing a shot at the BCS Championship game.

Despite their phenomenal season, the Bulldogs have struggled historically in Bowls with just an 11-13 record including 4 straight losses. The Trojans however are the second most winning team in bowl history with 31, only trailing Alabama. The Trojans have struggled with injuries and the revolving door of head coaches this season, but managed to recover somewhat toward the end of the season with a 9-4 record. Sports network is predicting a win for the Trojans, and they go in at 5/12 with Paddy Power. The Bulldogs are 11/5 with William Hill.

Ladbrokes are offering 10/11 for the score to be under 31.5 at the end of the first half, and the Bulldogs to score over 34.5 points is 17/20 with Bet Victor.
