Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl Preview

Never thought that I would see the day where a celebrity would have their own bowl game named after them. With that being said let me introduce you to the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl. We have a Mountain West vs Pac 12 matchup in this one, and I am very curious to see this game. This matchup is between Utah State (10-3) and Oregon State (7-5). With that being said here is my preview for the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl.

Utah State

The Utah State Aggies is coming off of their first ever Mountain West title and has a big matchup against a power five school in Oregon State. This offense’s explosiveness is the reason why they have been phenomenal so far in 2021. Quarterback Logan Bonner and wide receiver Deven Thompkins both broke school records this year. This duo is one of the best duos in the nation when it comes to production. Bonner threw for 3,560 yards to go along with 36 passing touchdowns which is a school record. While Thompkins has 1,589 receiving yards not only broke a school record, but he is second in the nation for most receiving yards this season as well.

The Aggies running back Calvin Tyler Jr also transferred from Oregon State so this will add another level for him. This team a season ago was a one-win team. Now they are Mountain West champions, the sky is the limit for this group. Defensively they are talented up front to put pressure on Oregon State and can make them readjust their gameplan on the fly which is worst case scenario for the Beavers. This game will be the icing on the cake for one of the best seasons in Utah State football history with a win here.

 

Oregon State 

The Oregon State Beavers are bowl eligible for the first time since 2013. This team though is a little difference when not playing at home. The Beavers only won one game in 2021 outside of their home stadium this year. Chance Nolan is a dynamic playmaker and Utah State’s defense will be on their toes if he gets going. However, the Beavers love to run the football and I think that B.J. Baylor will need to get going for this offense to flow well against the Aggies. You have to watch out for that Aggie defense which is fourth in the nation at generating negative plays per game. Baylor is the key to this offense because in games that he has over 100 yards on the ground, the Beavers are 5-1. Oregon State will need to have their offense on the field and keep that high powered Aggies offense on the sidelines for the majority of this one.

 

Prediction:

Oregon State are currently 7-point favorites and the over/under is at 67.5. I lean under in this matchup because I don’t think a bunch will be scored in this one. I see a 24-21 type of game. This is going to be a close one from start to finish. A lot of potential of a high scoring affair however, I lean the under here. My official play is Utah State +7. I love the Aggies in this spot here, Oregon State struggled away from home this year. They win the game outright, so I love the value at +240 for the Aggies. I will end up probably taking them on the money line, because I do think they will win this game. However, we will take the seven points for the preview.
