It’s a nice slate of bowl games this season and this should be a good one. The UCF Knights and the Marshall Thundering Herd face off in the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.
This should basically be a home game for the Knights.
Most teams in college football wouldn’t be disappointed sitting with a 9-3 record heading into a bowl game, but that has to be how the Knights feel. This is a team that always expects to be one of the best in football, and they didn’t even really compete for the AAC title this year.
For the Knights it’s all about the offense and they have been elite on that side of the ball this year. On the season the Knights are averaging 46 points per game which is 6th in football.
They have been strong with the run on the pass but the pass has been a little better. At quarterback the Knights are led by Dillon Gabriel who has thrown for 3,393 yards, 27 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
In this game it’s going to be all about the offense running up the score. If the offense runs up the score they should have no issue winning this game. A shootout would be the base case scenario.
Marshall Thundering Herd
On the other side of this matchup is the Marshall Thundering Herd who played a tough schedule to start the season but it made them better for the end of the season. Coming into this game they have won six of the last seven games with the loss coming against Charlotte 49ers.
For the Thundering Herd the offense has been fine, but it’s been the defense that has made the difference. On the season they are giving up only 23.1 points per game which is 41st in college football.
In this game it’s going to be all about the defense having success. If the defense struggles in this game the Thundering Herd really don’t have the offense to keep up.
