San Jose State: San Jose State has won 10 games for the first time since the 1987 season. The Spartans are making just their second bowl appearance since the 1990 California Raisin Bowl. Quarterback David Fales has passed for 3,798 yards. Wide receivers Noel Grisby and Chandler Jones caught 19 of Fales' 31 touchdown passes. San Jose State has a chance to win 11 games, which would be a new school record for wins in a season.   

Bowling Green: The Falcons possess a talented defense that allowed only 15.8 points per game, the top defense in the Mid-America Conference. Coach Dave Clawson's team is equally efficient against the pass and rush, surrendering 173.0 passing yards per game and 116.7 rushing yards per game. The linebacker corp of Martin, Woods, and Swan is arguably one of the best trios in the nation.
