Toledo Rockets vs Wyoming Cowboys prediction

The Toledo Rockets are throwing out Georgia Tech transfer Tucker Gleason at quarterback, as Dequan Finn has transferred to Baylor. If that wasn’t enough, I have to question the motivation for Toledo, as this was a team that could’ve had a big bowl appearance but was tripped up in the MAC Championship. Outside of New Year’s Six Bowls or playoff games, motivation is a big key in these games, and Toledo can’t be thrilled with this spot. It’s a letdown. Also, the Wyoming Cowboys are in the Arizona Bowl for the third time in the last 5 years, so there’s familiarity here. Give me Wyoming and the chalk.
