Citrus Bowl Odds - Purdue vs. LSU

2023 Citrus Bowl NCAA Football Betting

The LSU Tigers ended their season with a 50-30 loss to Georgia in the SEC championship. But they notched an overtime win over Alabama in the regular season that kept the Tide out of the CFP. LSU has been to a bowl in 21 straight seasons and has a 29-24-1 record in bowl games. Last season the Tigers lost to Kansas State, 42-20, in the Texas Bowl. The Boilermakers are headed to their 21st bowl game in school history and their second in two years after appearing in last season’s Music City Bowl. They emerged atop a chaotic Big Ten West to face Michigan in the Big Ten championship game and couldn’t keep up in the second half, falling 53-22. Purdue averaged 5.2 yards per play against FBS opponents this regular season and will look to notch another bowl game victory after edging out Tennessee 48-45 last year. Purdue lost its coach Jeff Brohm to the Louisville Cardinals less than a week after the Big Ten championship game.

Citrus Bowl Prediction

In this situation, LSU rates the call. Purdue could be disorganized and lacking motivation after Brohm walked out on them.

Citrus Bowl Format

The Citrus Bowl is now known as the Cheez-it Citrus Bowl and currently features schools from the Big Ten and the SEC. This game takes place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. This bowl began in 1947 as the Tangerine Bowl until 1982, when it was called the Florida Citrus Bowl. It was then known as the Capital One Bowl from 2003 through 2014.

The SEC has captured this bowl in nine of the past ten years. Georgia has had the most appearances in this bowl with six, and it's gone 4-1-1 in those games. Along with the Bulldogs, Tennessee is the only other school to win this bowl game more than four times.

Alabama defeated Michigan 35-10 in the 2019 edition; the third Citrus Bowl win for the SEC school.

In 2021, the Big Ten scored a 35-19 win by Northwestern over Auburn. But in 2022, Kentucky scored revenge for the SEC with a 20-17 victory over Iowa as the 'under' cashed. The 'under' is now 4-2 across the past six Citrus Bowls.

Previously, Oklahoma State won a thriller over Miami-FL 37-34. As it turned out, the win was a springboard to the Pokes' big year in 2021. In comparison, it was also a portent of the firing to come for Miami and coach Manny Diaz.

Originally titled the Blockbuster Bowl and sponsored by CarQuest and Micron PC, the game was born in Miami in 1990 and thrived in its first year with a marquee matchup between Penn State and Florida State, which drew more than 74,000 fans. Over the next 11 years, however, the game’s attendance declined, and it became apparent that it would not survive in south Florida.

Sensing a unique opportunity to bring a second bowl game to Orlando, the Florida Citrus Sports Board of Directors initiated a process of obtaining the bowl’s certification. In 2001, the bowl changed hands and was relocated to Orlando. In a tribute to Orlando’s original bowl game, the first contest was called the Tangerine Bowl with Pittsburgh, in its only appearance to date, knocking off NC State.

Three traditional powers, the Georgia Bulldogs, Michigan Wolverines, and Tennessee Volunteers lead with 4 all-time wins each at the Citrus Bowl. Michigan has played in the Citrus Bowl six times, including last year. Georgia, the Florida Gators, Auburn Tigers and Penn State Nittany Lions have also played in six Citrus Bowls.
