Pick: Kansas -12.5 (-110)
College football bowl season resumes on Tuesday night with the guaranteed rate bowl between the Kansas Jayhawks and the UNLV Rebels. Both of these teams put together quality, regular seasons, and both of them will be looking to cap the year off with a huge victory in this bowl game to give themselves as much momentum as possible heading into the off-season. This is a successful season for both of these programs that have been down over the last couple of seasons, and now they will face off here in this one as one of them looks to end their year on a high note. This should be one of the best of the slate here in this one in the guaranteed rate bowl between Kansas and UNLV.
The Kansas Jayhawks put up one of their best seasons in over a decade and a half with their performance this year. They will look to build on their successful campaign and end the year with a victory in their bowl game against UNLV, as they look for their ninth victory of the season. A win in this game would give Kansas plenty of momentum, heading into the off-season as they look to further establish themselves as a potential contender within the college football world in the near future. Kansas picked up eight wins throughout the regular season, and they were pretty competitive within the Big 12 conference, where they will instantly become one of the top teams in the conference after the exit of the Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas Longhorns in the middle of next year.
That is something they will likely use to motivate them throughout the off-season, especially with the fact that they beat Oklahoma on the way out of the conference. Despite a couple of heartbreaking losses to Texas Tech, and Kansas State during the backstretch of the season, they did end their year on a high note with a blowout win over Cincinnati. That is something they will look to build off of throughout this game as they look too further improve with another quality performance against UNLV. As the Kansas Jayhawks look to win their second consecutive game to wrap up the college football season.
