New Orleans Bowl Lines - Jacksonville State vs. Louisiana Odds

2022 New Orleans Bowl NCAA Football Betting

It has been a long and winding road for Jacksonville State head coach Rich Rodriguez. RichRod nearly won the 2007 national championship at West Virginia. But he proved to be the worst possible fit as HC of the Michigan Wolverines. He recovered at Arizona, where he won a division title and Pac-12 coach of the year, only to destroy himself with an extramarital affair. But at Jax State, Rodriguez is again thriving. Jacksonville State faces Louisiana at the New Orleans Bowl.
