AdvoCare V100 Bowl 2013

The AdvoCare V100 Bowl pits the Arizona Wildcats of the Pacific Athletic Conference against the Boston College Eagles of the Atlantic Coast Conference.  Here is some information about these two teams regular season in anticipation of this game today using the Complex Invasion College Football Production Model.  Below is quick view table of these two teams during this season and then after is more details and a "prediction".
AdvoCare V100 Bowl 2013

Wildcats Eagles
Wins 7 7
Losses 5 5
Total 56 72
Offense 57 66
Defense 58 69
SOS 62.58 67.67
Best 5 39
Worst 81 74

The Arizona Wildcats finished the regular season at 7-5, while playing against an "average" strength of schedule (SOS). The Wildcats best game this season (win over highest ranked team) was a 42-16 victory over currently ranked #5 Oregon; and their worst performance (loss over lowest ranked team) was a 17-24 loss to currently ranked #81 Washington State.  On the field Arizona is currently the #56 most productive team in the Football Bowl Subdivision, with the currently ranked #57 offense and #58 defense.

Boston College also finished 7-5, while also playing against an "average" SOS.  The Eagles best game was a 34-27 victory over currently ranked #39 Virginia Tech, and their worst performance was a 31-34 defeat by currently ranked #74 Syracuse.   On the field, the Eagles currently are the #72 most productive team in the FBS, with the currently ranked #66 offense and #69 defense - both just a little below average as compared to the rest of the "league".

 We have two very similar teams in that each has a great running back and each has played a similar schedule with similar results but Arizona has been slightly more productive on both sides of the ball as compared to Boston College.  Thus the model "predicts" that Arizona will be the winner of the AdvoCare V100 Bowl game this year.
