The line discrepancy in the Heart of Dallas game versus the Power Ratings is due to a quarterback injury for West Virginia.

Mountaineers coach Dana Holgorsen has ruled out junior Will Grier for the bowl game. That means a drop-off from Grier's 34 touchdown passes to sophomore Chris Chugunov's two.

The original line was Utah -4.5, suggesting that Grief is only a two-point value.

With the Cactus Bowl, UCLA will be missing their top quarterback, valued at close to 6 points on the line.

Likewise, Texas has injuries coming into the Texas Bowl against Missouri.

LSU will be without three defensive starters against Notre Dame for the Citrus Bowl. Pass rusher Arden Key and linebackers Corey Thompson and Donnie Alexander are all hampered with injuries that will keep them out of the Citrus Bowl.

According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, their replacements are young and inexperienced.

This is important as Notre Dame should already be the favorite here according to the College Football Betting Power Ratings and are listed as the underdog. 

With the Sugar Bowl being played in New Orleans, Alabama techically will have home field advantage over Clemson considering the short drive from southern Alabama to New Orleans (just two hours).  This appears to be reflected in the line already.
