Toledo won the MAC Conference convincingly. Appalachian State only got a split of the Sun Belt title, but both teams earned a spot in the General Dollar Bowl just two days before Christmas.
Mobile, Alabama is the site of a bowl games that strives to make a positive economic impact and provide a lending hand to the youth in the Mobile area.
Toledo was a well-deserved champion of the MAC this season. The Rockets lost just one game in the conference, a slip-up on the road against Ohio. Other than that, the only loss the Rockets suffered all season came against Miami early in the non-conference.
Toledo had wins by 20, 27, 41, 29 and 27 in the conference. It also won the championship game against Akron at Ford Field by 17 and it could have been more than that. Logan Woodside threw four touchdown passes and Terry Swanson ran for 180 yards out of the backfield, including two touchdowns. The Rockets opened up a 38–0 lead and just coasted from there.
Head Coach Jason Candle is getting some attention as a 38-year-old head coach who could move up to a bigger job after the season but all indications thus far are that he wants to stay with Toledo. He took over as the head coach late two years ago and led his team to a win at the Boca Raton Bowl Game but lost the Camellia Bowl in his first full season as the top dog last year.
The offense has some gaudy numbers on the season. Logan Woodside threw for over 3700 yards in his senior season with 28 touchdowns to just five interceptions. He should top 4000 yards on the season in this game and will likely eclipse 30 touchdown passes, too.
It starts with Woodside but three Toledo backs each have over 100 carries this season and combined to score 28 touchdowns on just about six yards per carry. This offense is multidimensional and dangerous.
Appalachian State Mountaineers
Appalachian State started Sun Belt play with three wins in a row before stumbling with back-to-back losses in early November, though only one was against a conference opponent. The Mountaineers got back up, though, and won their final three games of the season to earn a share of the conference championship with Troy.
The two teams atop the standings didn’t meet in the season. Troy’s only loss came against South Alabama. App State’s one loss was to Louisiana-Monroe by a touchdown in a shootout, 52–45.
Taylor Lamb has had an outstanding senior season at quarterback. He may top 3000 yards and 30 touchdown passes with a good game in Mobile. As it stands now, he’s thrown 27 TDs to just six interceptions. He’s also got over 500 yards rushing and five TDs on the ground.
Jalin Moore leads the ground game with 161 carries and nine touchdowns. He’ll be looking for an 1000-yard season, as he is less than 90 yards away from that milestone now. There are four other ballcarriers (including Lamb) who have ran more than 50 times for Appalachian State.
Free Dollar General Bowl Game NCAA Football Pick: Appalachian State shows the MAC and wins outright.
He’s been out for some time now, but Cody Thompson’s absence as Toledo’s number one wide receiver will have an effect on this game. I like Appalachian State’s chances of storming into Mobile and taking this game as a 7.5-point dog.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Appalachian State +7.5
With two senior quarterbacks having outstanding seasons going head-to-head, this game should at the very least be close. There’s an excellent chance it comes down the final possession so to get 7.5 here feels like a good spot.
