The Tulane Green Wave is set to take on the Southern Miss Golden Eagles in the Armed Forces Bowl, in a game between two former conference opponents. It’s a bit of an early kickoff starting at 11:30 a.m. EST.
Tulane is coming into this game losing five of its last six games to finish at 6-6 and qualify for a bowl game. The Green Wave finished 3-5 in the conference for a fourth place finish in the American Athletic Conference West division.
Southern Miss finished the season 7-5 overall including 5-3 in the Conference USA West division for third place. The Golden Eagles also did not finish off their season on a high note with an 18-point home loss to Western Kentucky followed by a 34-17 road defeat to FAU.

The Best Bet
It’s tough to decide a winner here especially with the way these teams ended the season. My best bet is to go with Southern Miss to cover as touchdown underdogs. Something about losing five out of six games and being favored by seven in a bowl game doesn’t feel right. Take the Golden Eagles and start your Saturday off on a high note.
Pick: Southern Miss +7
