In NCAA Football Independence Bowl, we will see Louisiana Tech at Miami Florida.
The Miami Hurricanes are 6-6 on the year mostly because of their inconsistent offense. The defense is allowing just 20 points per game but we can expect everything from the offense. It can score 52 on one week as it did against Louisiana and then score just 17 two weeks after that. Freshman QB Jarren Williams is completing 62% of his throws for 2093 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions. RB DeeJay Dallas is helping him with 693 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns.
On the other side, we have a Louisiana Tech team that is 9-3 but they faced mostly less respectable opposition. The Bulldogs conceded losses against Texas, Marshall, and UAB but the offense showed that it can compete even with the best teams. Louisiana Tech is averaging 34 points per game which is tied for 27th best in the NCAA and allowing 23 points per game.
Miami has better talent but they are 3-6 against the spread as favorites this year. Louisiana Tech also has the better and more experienced QB- J’Mar Smith who is completing 66% of his throws for 2814 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. Miami better not come out flat in this one because otherwise, they will be upset.
