COLLEGE FOOTBALL BOWL PICK: Take Arizona. According to latest college football trends, Nevada is 0-7 ATS L7 with a total of 63+ points, 2-8-1 ATS last 11 non-conference games and are 0-4-1 ATS last 5 bowl games. Arizona is: 11-2 ATS last 13 off a home game scoring and allowing 31+ points.  The similarities between Arizona and Nevada are striking.

This is shaping up to be a high-scoring New Mexico Bowl as both teams have high-powered offenses. Arizona (7-5) got as high as No. 22 in the poll after opening 3-0, which included a 59-38 victory over then-No. 18 Oklahoma State on Sept. 8. Nevada got off to a 6-1 start to become bowl eligible but also finished 7-5. The Wolf Pack are allowing an average of 32.5 points and are 13th-worst in the FBS against the run, giving up 213.2 yards per game. One of their biggest weaknesses is on third down, as they let opponents convert 47.2 percent of the time for the nation's 12th-worst mark. Arizona has their own issues defensively but they've played a tougher schedule in the Pac-12.  The Wildcats are seventh in total offense at 521.8 yards per game and average 37.3 points, while the Wolf Pack check in just behind them in both categories, averaging 502.8 yards and 37.0 points. Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey should have a monster game against a terrible run defense. In directing the spread offense, QB Matt Scott ranked third in the Pac-12 with 3,238 passing yards and had 24 touchdowns to 12 interceptions. Eight of those picks came in three losses, though, and the Wildcats are 6-2 when he has one interception or fewer. Expect a shootout early and then Arizona settles down and gets enough stops to win this big.
