There’s another Michigan vs. Alabama football battle coming up.
College football bowl season begins Dec. 16, and while most eyes are focused on No. 1 Michigan in the Rose Bowl Jan. 1 against the Crimson Tide, Eastern Michigan will be the first (and only other) Michigan college in a bowl game when it takes on South Alabama on Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
It’s the 68 Ventures Bowl – they’re a home building company – that’s the latest name for the bowl game in Mobile, which includes the Mobile Bowl, GMAC Bowl, GoDaddy Bowl and Dollar General Bowl over the years.
Michigan sportsbooks already have odds and props on each one of the 43 college football bowl games (yes, that’s a lot). DraftKings lists the Eagles as 16-point underdogs, while BetMGM has them at 15.5.
