Sun Bowl 2012

Today the Sun Bowl has the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets of the Atlantic Coast Conference playing against the USC Trojans of the PAC 12.  Let's take a look at each team using the NCAA FBS Production Model.

Georgia Tech finished the regular season at 6-7 (losing the ACC title game to Florida State) playing against an average strength of schedule.  Georgia Tech best game was a 68-50 win against currently ranked #20 North Carolina.  Their other five wins came against teams currently ranked 88th and higher.  Georgia Tech's worst game was a loss to currently ranked #74 Miami of Florida.  Georgia Tech is currently the #59 most productive team in the football bowl subdivision with the #36 ranked offense and the #82 ranked defense.

USC finished the regular season 7-5 playing a tougher strength of schedule than the average of the "league".  USC's best game was a 38-17 victory of #31 Arizona State and their worst game was a 36-39 defeat to #62 Arizona.  USC is currently ranked as the #29 most productive team in the NCAA FBS with the #27 ranked offense and the #37 ranked defense.

The model "predicts" that USC will be victorious over Georgia Tech in today's Sun Bowl.
