New Era Pinstripe Bowl
No. 23 Pittsburgh (8-4, 5-3 ACC) vs. Northwestern (6-6, 5-4 Big Ten)
Dec. 28 – 2 p.m., ESPN
Yankee Stadium, Bronx, N.Y.

Average Line: Pitt, -5.5

This is a match-up between two blue-collar football teams. I have a lot of respect for the job that Pat Fitzgerald has done at Northwestern, but, I like Pitt in this one. What better way to send off James Conner than with a bowl victory?

Score prediction: 24-21 Pitt

Players to watch:

James Conner (RB) Pitt

Anthony Walker (LB) NW
