It’s bowl season, and the games are now in full flow. Over the next couple of days, there is plenty of action to look forward to and NFL prospects to keep an eye on. Today, we’re focusing on the games on December 29th.

Kentucky vs Northwestern
Wildcats versus Wildcats! The fact that the two teams share a mascot might be the most entertaining part of this game, to be completely honest. Kentucky has a negative scoring margin on the season, while Northwestern has a stout defense that only gives up about 19 points a game. While their 9-3 record indicates a strong team, I’m not sold on these Wildcats. They’re 4-1 in one score games, and also got throttled 41-17 by a Duke team that isn’t great. However, Northwestern ranks 43rd in S&P+, while Kentucky ranks 94th so it looks to be a substantial mismatch. I don’t expect this to be a pretty game by any stretch.
