Holiday Bowl Pick

Holiday Bowl Thursday at 10:00 tonight live on ESPN
The washington huskies face off against the Nebrasak Cornhuskers tonight in the most wonderful time of the year for college football bowl bettors. Last time these two teams played the corn huskers got blown out of the water losing 56-21 and fought back winning the last 3 games this season to get here tonight.
Nebraska is currently a 14 point favorite against the spread according to our live College Football Lines that you can see with a 52.5 on the over. 

The Cornhuskers are playing in the Holiday Bowl for the second straight year. Last year they routed Arizona 33-0 and the oddsmakers see a similar type of game on Thursday night.  This is not a great Nebraska team though and Washington does have the revenge motive so perhaps the game will be closer than the two-touchdown pointspread.


Washington is led by quarterback Jake Locker who threw for 2,209 yards and 17 touchdowns this season. It was not a banner year for Locker whose draft status has fallen considerably from where it was a year ago. The Huskies do have a running game though, led by running back Chris Polk, who had 1,287 yards and eight touchdowns this college football betting season. Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse also had a good season with 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns.  Washington had major problems on defense this season as they allowed 31.2 points per game.  The Huskies were terrible against the run allowing 198.8 rushing yards per game and that is a major concern against Nebraska that ran over them in the previous meeting.


The game in September between these teams was a rout because Nebraska ran at will against the Huskies. They had 383 rushing yards as quarterback Taylor Martinez led the team with 156 rushing yards and three rushing TDs.  Martinez combines with running back Roy Helu Jr. to give Nebraska a potent backfield.  The Huskers have the talent to dominate Washington again but whether they are motivated to do so is a big question.


Here are the football betting stats for Thursday’s game. The Huskies are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Huskies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 bowl games. The Cornhuskers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 bowl games.


The Over is 4-0 in the Huskies last 4 vs. the Big 12. The Under is 6-1 in the Cornhuskers last 7 bowl game so get your picks and your winners right here at Coopers Pick with a free trial to prove to you that we know how to pick winners like an eskimo knows how to pick up ice and snow.
