The 2019 edition of the Camellia Bowl pits the FIU Panthers against the Arkansas State Red Wolves in what should be a tight game that goes right down to the wire.
The last time these two teams met was in 2012 with the Arkansas State Red Wolves coming out on top by a score of 34-20.
The FIU Panthers started off their season with a disappointing game against the Tulane Green Wave, as they were beaten 41-14 in a game that was basically a pick em’. They followed things up the next week with a tough 20-14 loss against Western Kentucky University, who actually turned out to be quite a good team.
They then went on to go 4-1 in their next 5 as they took advantage of a soft stretch of their schedule. They finished 2-3 in their last five games to wrap up what is a bitter sweet season at 6-6. Given the hype this FIU Panthers team had coming into this season 6-6 was not good enough, but this season will always be remembered by Panthers fans for the win against the Miami Hurricanes which must go down as the biggest win in the program’s history.
Capping the season off with a bowl win certainly would make the season more sweet then bitter, and they do have the talent on this squad to do just that.
Their QB play has been great with James Morgan only throwing 3 interceptions on the season and throwing 13 TD’s and over 2200 yards. They also have two serviceable running backs between Anthony Jones and Napoleon Maxwell who have combined for 17 TD’s on the season.
Arkansas State Red Wolves
The Arkansas State Red Wolves also struggled a bit early on in the season, but that was mostly down to a pretty stiff schedule as they had to face SMU and Georgia early on. Once they hit the softer part of their schedule they started rolling as they finished 4-1 to get to 7-5 and earn themselves their trip to the Camellia Bowl.
Freshman QB Layne Hatcher was solid all season and it looks like he will be one to keep your eye on for the future as threw for over 2500 yards and had a 23-9 TD to INT ratio. This FIU secondary has been exposed at times this year, so he could be in for a big game especially since he has the best offensive weapon in this game with Omar Bayless.
Bayless was the Sun Belt player of the year, and with reason, as he ended the season with nearly 1500 years and 16 TD’s. He should be highly motivated for this one for the obvious reason that it is a bowl game, but he will also be looking to improve his draft stock going into the 2020 NFL draft.

Camellia Bowl NCAA Football Pick
The QB play in this game is strong and I do not trust either of these teams to come up with a big stop. Bayless should crush here and I thoroughly expect this game to go over the total.
