Boca Raton Bowl Odds - Liberty vs. Toledo

2022 Boca Raton Bowl NCAA Football Betting

Toledo beat the Ohio Bobcats 17-7 to win the MAC Championship for the first time since 2017. With momentum on its side, Toledo will turn its attention to winning the bowl game, which has been an elusive feat in previous campaigns. The Rockets have played in a bowl game four times since 2016, losing each of those contests. Led by dual-threat QB Dequann Finn and a solid defense that ranks 22nd in opponent yards per play (4.8), the Rockets will look to end that postseason skid.

Liberty will be heading to its fourth bowl game and are 3-0 in previous bowl games. Last season Liberty beat Eastern Michigan 56-20 in the LendingTree Bowl. The team is in a transition position following the departure of former head coach Hugh Freeze to Auburn and the arrival of new head coach Jamey Chadwell from Coastal Carolina.

Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin helped rehabilitate his once lost career by leading Florida Atlantic to two Boca Raton bowls as CUSA champion. It also helped that the game is played on FAU’s home field. Kiffin did not coach in the 2019 edition, having left for Ole Miss, but the Owls were definitely his team.
