Myrtle Beach Bowl Odds - Marshall vs. Connecticut

2022 Myrtle Beach Bowl NCAA Football Betting

At the onset of Jim Mora Jr’s arrival at Connecticut was despair. Many college football observers and gamblers scoffed at Mora’s hiring. And they rolled their eyes at UConn having a football program. In fact, there were calls for UConn to fold the program. The Huskies are a former member of the American Athletic Conference. But they were kicked out of the AAC because they moved their basketball program to the Big East. Following several warnings, UConn put basketball first. And their program collapsed. Yet Mora has worked the miracle of producing a bowl in his first season.
