Tuesday afternoon the Russell Athletic Bowl showdown with the North Carolina Tar Heels taking on the Baylor Bears in Orlando, Florida.
North Carolina is coming off a disappointing loss in the ACC championship game to number one in the country Clemson.
Baylor got embarrassed down the stretch losing key games to TCU and Texas, although they did have their fourth string QB in the game for the Texas bout.
Baylor although riddled with injuries in the second half of the year had a great year all around going 9-3.
At the Quarterback position though they were spread thin when third string Chris Johnson went down with a concussion and did not play in their last game against Texas.
Chris Johnson should be back for the bowl game in late December and the Baylor Bears should somewhat be on track.
Expect a heavy dose of the run game no matter who is at quarterback, the Bears will have to rely heavily on their defense to round out the season and really just survive towards next year with everything that has gone on to key young players.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels have had a break out season this year going 11-2 and almost took down the number one team in the country in the ACC championship.
With a balanced attack the Tar Heels running back Elijah Hood has almost rushed for 1400 yards and added 17 touchdowns on the ground as well.
Astonishingly enough as well the quarterback for the Heels’ has passed for almost 3000 yards adding to an already explosive group on offense.
Watch for the pass game to be huge in this game for the Tar Heels as the Bears have quite a bit more experience with their front 7 on defense.

Free Russell Athletic Bowl NCAA Football Prediction
North Carolina is the most underrated team in the country by my standards, with no national attention and almost beating the number one team in the nation they will come out with something to prove and really show the country what they are made of.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: North Carolina ATS
North Carolina will put up the points they need to and stop the Baylor offense as well so not only do I like them to win the game but they should cover the spread nicely.
