FAMOUS IDAHO POTATO BOWL STORYLINES

1. Ohio and Nevada both parlayed strong finishes into invitations to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Jan. 3 in Boise, Idaho. The Bobcats won four of their final six games, including back-to-back blowouts of Bowling Green (66-24) and Akron (52-3) to end the season and get to the six wins necessary for bowl eligibility, while Nevada won three of the final four games to earn its second straight bowl berth. Ohio, making its fifth consecutive bowl appearance and 11th in the past 14 years, and Nevada will be meeting for the first time.

2. Although Boise is about a seven-hour drive from Reno and Nevada is familiar with playing on the unusual blue "Smurf Turf" at Albertsons Stadium during Mountain West play, the Wolf Pack may not own much of an advantage playing close to home. Nevada has lost 11 straight games at Albertsons Stadium dating back to 1997 (nine versus Boise State and two bowl games). Ohio, meanwhile, earned its first-ever bowl victory on the blue turf in the 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl 24-23 over Utah State.

3. Nevada will be without three defensive starters for the game - nose tackle Hausia Sekona, safety Austin Arnold and cornerback Daniel Brown - and also linebacker Gabriel Sewell for the first half of the game after they were suspended by the Mountain West for their roles in a post-game brawl in their regular-season finale with UNLV. Arnold, who started the melee when he blindsided UNLV quarterback Kenyon Oblad from behind during the Rebels' postgame celebration, received a two-game suspension while Brown and Sekona, both seniors, received one-game bans which ended their college careers. The Wolf Pack also will be without defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel and assistants David Lockwood and Mike Chamoures who were fired after the UNLV game.

TV: 3:30 p.m. ET, ESPN. LINE: Ohio -7.5

ABOUT OHIO (6-6): Senior quarterback Nathan Rourke earned first team All-MAC honors for the Bobcats after completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 2,676 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions while also rushing for another 780 yards and 12 scores. Ohio averaged 216.5 rushing yards per game which ranked 22nd nationally with Rourke, freshman running back O'Shaan Allison (823 yards, six TDs) and junior running back De'Montre Tuggle (547, 10) all topping the 500-yard mark in rushing while sophomore wide receiver Isiah Cox led the receiving corps with 36 catches for 590 yards. Senior defensive back Javon Hagan garnered first team All-MAC honors for the second year in a row after finishing with a career-high 99 tackles to go with seven pass breakups.

ABOUT NEVADA (7-5): Freshman Carson Strong finished the regular season eighth in the Mountain West in passing yards, completing 206-of-325 attempts for 1,933, but threw just 10 touchdown passes compared to seven interceptions. Sophomore Toa Taua led a ground game that ranked 11th in the Mountain West (122.8 yards per game) with 759 yards on 190 carries and six touchdowns while junior wide receiver Elijah Cooks led the team in receptions with 62 for 729 yards and seven touchdowns. The loss of Brown, who was tied for second in the Mountain West with four interceptions, is a big one for the Wolf Pack as they ranked 10th in the conference in pass defense - allowing an average of 259.8 yards per game.

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.

Ohio Bobcats vs. Nevada Wolf Pack

Ohio rushed for 285 yards, led by De'Montre Tuggle's 97 yards on 10 carries, and the Bobcats held off a late rally by Nevada for a 30-21 win in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Friday at Boise, Idaho.

Ohio quarterback Nathan Rourke completed nine of his 17 passes for 144 yards. He also rushed for 87 yards on 10 carries.

Nevada (7-6) struggled defensively for most of the first three quarters without defensive backs Daniel Brown and Austin Arnold and lineman Hausia Sekona, and also linebacker Gabriel Sewell for the first half. Those four were suspended by the Mountain West for their roles in the postgame melee that followed Nevada's overtime loss to UNLV on Nov. 30.

The Wolf Pack were down 30-9 to start the fourth quarter. They scored two touchdowns after two Ohio fumbles to close the lead to 30-21 with 8:42 left in regulation.

Ohio (7-6) limited Nevada to 29 rushing yards and prevented quarterback Carson Strong from leading his team to the end zone until he completed an 8-yard touchdown pass to Elijah Cooks with 10:48 left in regulation to cut the lead to 30-15. The point-after attempt was blocked by Dylan Conner.

After Rourke fumbled on a sack by Dom Peterson, fellow defensive end Sam Hammond recovered the ball at Ohio's 21-yard line with 9:39 left. The Wolf Pack scored three plays later on a 1-yard run by Devonte Lee with 8:42 remaining to cut the lead to 30-21. A two-point conversion pass failed.

Nevada drove to the Ohio 6 on its next possession but the drive ended on a fumble by Lee on a reverse play that was forced by Austin Conrad and recovered by Marcus Coleman with 3:12 left.

In one last gasp, Nevada had the ball on the Ohio 9 on the following possession but Strong tossed four straight incompletions to end the threat.

Strong completed 31 of 49 passes for 402 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. Cooks caught 14 passes for 197 yards.

In the first half, Ohio scored on all four of its possessions, including after a 71-yard, 15-play drive that took 7:47. The drive was capped by Julian Ross's 12-yard touchdown run to give the Bobcats a 10-3 lead with 12:28 remaining in the second quarter.

On Ohio's next drive, Rourke had a 38-yard pass to Isiah Cox and scored on a 35-yard run with 6:21 left in the quarter to give the Bobcats a 17-6 lead.

Ohio drove 50 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter after linebacker Keye Thompson recovered a fumble by Carson. Tuggle rushed 2 yards for the score with 5:26 left in the quarter to give Ohio a 30-9 lead.
