Camellia Bowl. . . ESPN/ESPN+. Saturday, Dec. 23. 2150. 6-6. 2294. 6-6

Camellia Bowl

Corey Rucker, WR, Arkansas State: Rucker began his career at Arkansas State before going to South Carolina for the 2022 season, where he caught just one pass, but it was for a TD. He returned to the Red Wolves this season and has 107 receptions and 15 touchdowns for his college career. He is most likely going to have to take the undrafted route to the NFL.

Courtney Jackson, WR, Arkansas State: A transfer from Syracuse, Jackson had his best college season this year and led the Red Wolves with 38 receptions for 658 yards and seven scores.

Antario Brown, RB, Northern Illinois: Brown is only a junior but he could be inclined to come out early after rushing for over 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns this year. He is definitely a name to keep tabs on in fantasy football circles.

Saturday, Dec. 23. 8-4. 501. 2364. ABC/ESPN+. Armed Forces Bowl. . . 11-1

Armed Forces Bowl

Ty Son Lawton, RB, James Madison: The Dukes have a completely split backfield and it was actually Kaelon Black who led the team in rushing this year, but he only had 26 more yards than Lawton. The former rushed for 568 yards and scored six touchdowns this season.

Emmanuel Michel, RB, Air Force: Running backs at the Air Force Academy don't often translate well to the next level, but Michel is an athletic player with some upside that deserves a look. He leads the Falcons with 747 yards rushing and nine touchdowns on the season.
