COLLEGE FOOTBALL BOWL PICK: Take the under. According to latest college football trends, the under is 5-0 in Toledo’s last five games overall and 5-0 in its last five games following a loss. The under is also 6-0 in Utah State’s last six non-conference games and 11-3 in the Aggies’ last 14 games overall. Utah State is eighth in the nation in scoring defense (15.4) and 15th in total defense and while Toledo has a talented duo of David Fluellen and Terrance Owens, neither played in the Rockets’ final regular-season game on November 20th. With a full month off for two of its stars, look for Toledo to come out of the gates slow offensively and for this one to fall under the total.
