The Dollar General Bowl began in 1999, and it’s gone through a few different names. It began as the Mobile Alabama Bowl for a few years before becoming the GMAC Bowl in 2001, and then the GoDaddy Bowl in 2011. While it isn’t a premier bowl game with its ties to the MAC and Sun Belt, it usually gets the runners-up in both conferences, which makes for some interesting matchups.
Troy: The Trojans has been one of the most powerful Group of Five teams in the country under Neal Brown. In his four seasons, the Trojans are 34-16 and enter this game with a 9-3 record. A win over Buffalo would give the Trojans at least 10 wins in a season for the third consecutive year, and the only three times in program history. This will be Troy’s eighth bowl game, and the Trojans are 4-3 in their first seven postseason games.
The Trojans have a solid ground game, but aren’t great in their passing game. Then again, Buffalo struggles against the pass, and if the Trojans can open up the field with their ground game, it’s possible that QB Sawyer Smith might find the openings he needs to put up some points on the Bulls defense.
The game will be nationally televised on ESPN, and you can likely find a stream on WatchESPN on the day of the game. Otherwise, head on over to the college football streams subreddit on Reddit.com.
While the Bulls may be favored heading into this matchup, they tend to underperform when they need it most. The Trojans are the opposite, as they rise up to the challenge against better teams. We believe they’ll pull off the upset.
