Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan will host the 2019 Quick Lane Bowl between the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Eastern Michigan Eagles in what looks to be a bit of a mismatch, at least on paper.
The last time these two locked horns was in 2007 in a game which Pittsburgh came out on top in blowout fashion with a 27-3 victory.
This Pittsburgh Panthers team did well to end the season 7-5 given the tough schedule they had to deal with. Their 7 win record earned themselves the opportunity to finish the season on a high and it looks like they should have the necessary firepower to get the job done in this spot.
Taysir Mack has been the main pass catcher for this team and has amassed over 700 yards and 2 TD’s on the season. Passing him the ball was Junior QB Kenny Pickett who has been decent this year, but has struggled with throwing picks as he has 9 on the season.
The real strength of this team is the defense who has been solid all year round and is led by sophomore DB Paris Ford who has 3 interceptions and 86 tackles this year. Given the types of offenses the Panthers have faced this year, it is likely this Panthers team comes up with another big performance here and cap off the year with a bowl victory.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eastern Michigan Eagles have had an up and down season and have finished off their campaign with a 6-6 record. That is not all that great given the quality of their opposition, as they have not gone up against any real top opposition this year.
Senior QB Mike Glass has been solid so far on the year and will be looking to wrap up his college career with a bang on Thursday in front of a big crowd at Ford Field. He certainly does have the ability to lead his team to a victory here as he has gotten nearly 3000 passing yards this season and a respectable 22-10 TD to interception ratio.
This Eagles defense has been below par this year as they have allowed their opponents to score over 30 points per games. They do have one standout performer on defense, however, with linebacker Kobie Beltram getting over 100 tackles and having a very strong string of games down the stretch.

Quick Lane Bowl NCAA Football Pick
The Pittsburgh Panthers are the better overall team and I am trusting them to cover the 11 points here. The Eagles have not played against too many quality defenses this year and I do not see them being able to operate their offense well enough to keep this one close here especially with the Panthers front 7 putting constant pressure on Mike Glass.
