Music City Bowl Breakdown
The spotlight will be on the quarterback position in the Music City Bowl as Texas A&M takes on Louisville at 7PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Louisville is favored in this bowl game, as the Cardinals are getting odds of -5 points against the Aggies. The over/under total for the game has been set at 49 points. These two meet today at 7PM ET on ESPN. The game will be held from Nissan Stadium in Nashville, TN.
Both teams come into today’s game with QB issues as Louisville (7-5, 6-6 ATS) has split time between Lamar Jackson and Kyle Bolin under center. The two have combined for 17 touchdown passes, but also have 14 interceptions. Neither man has been able to complete over 56 percent of their passes, but Jackson is a running threat with 734 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.
Texas A&M (8-4, 5-7 ATS) is forced to go with Jake Hubenak at QB due to both Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray transferring during the bowl break. Hubenak has appeared sparingly throughout the season and is just 12 of 27 passing for 92 yards with one touchdown in 2015. Oddsmakers have given Hubenak an over/under of 226.5 passing yards for today’s game. For the season, the Aggies are averaging 251.3 passing yards per game, so they can move the ball. However, Hubenak is unproven and he faces a Louisville defense that is giving up just 204.7 passing yards per game.
