Line Move and Action

The line has moved from Buffalo -3 to -1 with action mostly balanced.

The Dollar General Bowl

The Dollar General Bowl is a postseason NCAA-sanctioned Division I FBS college football bowl game that has been played annually at Ladd Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama, since 1999. The game currently matches teams from the Sun Belt Conference and the Mid-American Conference.


ESPN.com’s Phil Steele:

While Buffalo will be excited about being in a bowl, it is traveling 1,152 miles while Troy is traveling just 167 miles -- essentially making this a Troy home game in Alabama. Buffalo has the big names in this game, with NFL-caliber quarterback Tyree Jackson and NFL-caliber receiver Anthony Johnson. The Bulls have the edge at running back and on the offensive line, which gives them the clear advantage on offense. But Troy is stronger on the defensive line, led by Trevon Sanders and linebacker Hunter Reese, who were both first-team All-Sun Belt.

Troy has a top-five special-teams unit, while Buffalo comes in at No. 95 in my rankings. Troy head coach Neal Brown is 2-0 in bowl games. With the crowd edge accounted for, I have Troy as four points better despite them being the betting underdog in this one.

Lean: Troy +2
Score: Troy 28, Buffalo 24
