Preview: In San Francisco, California, the final bowl game before the National title game will be the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. The game will feature the Nevada Wolf Pack and the Boston College Eagles.

This is the sixth straight bowl game for the Wolf Pack. It is estimated, that since Reno to San Francisco is just four hours, the Wolf Pack will send close to 10,000 fans.

The Eagles of Boston College finished with a 7-5 record. After starting the season 2-5, the Eagles won their final five games; including wins over Clemson and Syracuse. The Eagles were the best defensive team against the run; allowing just 80.2 yards per game. Boston College boasts a dynamic duo of linebackers in Mark Herzlich and Luke Kuechly. Kuechly was a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, as he led the nation with 171 tackles. This is the first time these two teams have played.

My Betting Picks: Nevada’s offense is way too good. Wolf Pack win 38-14.
