Where: Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona
Watch on: ESPN
Odds: Kansas State -6½
Total O/U: 61½

UCLA QB Josh Rosen has a concussion and is expected to miss Tuesday’s Cactus Bowl against Kansas State. If he declares for the NFL draft he’s expected to be a top-two pick as both the Browns and Giants are expected to draft QBs.

He led the Bruins to a 6-6, 4-5 record in the PAC-12. Throwing for 3756 yards and 26TDs. The offense averaged 33.8 PPG, but the defense was one of college football’s worst, allowing 36.8 PPG. UCLA will be coached by interim coach Jedd Fisch with NCAA coaching legend Chip Kelly set to take over the program going forward.

They’ll face another coaching legend as Bill Snyder leads the 7-5, 5-4 Kansas State Wildcats into battle. Plenty of controversy surrounds their program as the 78-year-old hasn’t confirmed yet if he’ll return next season. The Wildcats ended their season on a high note winning their last two, including a 45-40 victory over #13 Oklahoma State. Overall, they scored 32.1 PPG and allowed 25.8 PPG.

Kansas State Wildcats vs. UCLA Bruins Betting Trends & Predictions

Kansas State:
KSU are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 bowl games
KSU are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Bowl games

UCLA:
Over is 11-4 in UCLA last 15 vs. Big 12
UCLA are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall
UCLA are 7-16 ATS in their last 23 games on grass

The Bottom Line:
Kansas State is -6½ favorites and should be more taking on a team with such a weak defense while missing their franchise QB and led by a lame duck coach. Crazier things have happened, but I like the Wildcats chances. The Pick: Kansas State 42-24.
