Football Odds

It rules when traditionally crap teams suddenly play all awesome, and there have been plenty of them this college-football season. Along with Temple and Idaho, habitual stink-up-the-joint clubs like the Iowa State Cyclones are going bowling, which is a super oddity. That sure means they’ll be super into playing the Minnesota Golden Gophers during the Insight Bowl on Thursday, December 31. As far as the Gophers, who will be making a repeat visit to the game, they christened its new luxurious digs in Minneapolis with a bummer-ish 6-6 season. That probably means that they, too, will be hungry for a win.
