Georgia Bulldogs Battle the UCF Golden Knights in the Liberty Bowl

The Auto Zone Liberty Bowl features an SEC powerhouse in Georgia as they take on the Golden Knights from Central Florida. The Bulldogs are looking to end the season on a high note, while the Knights look for their first bowl victory ever.
The latest college football odds as posted by SkyBook for this bowl game have the Bulldogs listed as 6.5 point favorites with the total set at 54 this quality bow matchup.
On paper this game looks like a mismatch as the Bulldogs play in the superior conference and boast a NFL wide receiver in AJ Green. Young Aaron Murray leads the Bulldogs at quarterback and has had a year that he learned from and grew as one of the best signal callers in the SEC. How can Central Florida match up with that?
The Knights have one of the best ground games in all of football averaging a ton of yards, ranking 25th in the Football bowl Subdivision and leading the way in Conference USA as one of the best rushing attacks.
The Knights won the Conference USA Championship and can play with any team in the country as they seek their very first bowl victory.. Head coach George O'Leary has the Knights headed in the right direction and a win against an SEC team could spark recruiting, ushering UCF into a new level of college football lore. Although Freshman Jeff Godfrey is the quarterback this team is playing like seasoned veterans.
This game provides some poor sports betting trends for the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are 9-19 against the spread (ATS) in their last 28 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game and 1-6 ATS when facing a team with a winning record.
The sports betting trends favor the Knights in the Liberty Bowl. The Knights are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0 and 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
It will be interesting to see if the Golden knights can get their first ever bowl victory against a Georgia team searching for an identity.
