Score: 43 - 10
Point Spread: +12½/-110 Southern Methodist
Fresno State comes into this game at 9-3 and 7-1 in conference play. At 12 point favorites, the public is leaning heavy on Fresno State getting the easy win here, but they have a 1st year coach in DeRuyter and this is his 1st bowl game while SMU's Jones coaches his 10th. SMU has a veteran coach who knows how to prepare his team for the bowls especially in Hawaii. SMU is a young team, but with a month to prepare for this game, I like them getting 12 points.
