Jan 2, 12:00 PM | Grass of Cotton Bowl Penn State Nittany Lions vs Houston Cougars Odds 9-3TEAM RECORD12-1 The Houston Cougars nearly ran the table in 2011, losing the C-USA title game in an upset and they hit the TicketCity Bowl against the Penn State Nittany Lions as favorites against the marquee school. Of course, Penn State was shaken this year by the sex scandal involving Jerry Sandusky and they look to shake off a terrible 1-9 SU mark in their last 10 bowl appearances. [ Ticket City Bowl odds preview and wagering trends article ] Case Keenum threw for more than 5,000 yards and 45 TDs this year in Houston, so the OVER 56.5 looks tempting. The Cougars sport records of 12-1 and 10-3 ATS heading into this matchup, while the Nittany Lions sit at 9-3 and 3-8-1 ATS on the season. The over under records are 8-5 for the Cougars and 2-8-1 for the Nittany Lions. read more
