San Jose State: A trip to the Military Bowl in the nation's capital is the Spartans' (10-2 straight-up and against the spread) reward for a second-place finish in the WAC. San Jose State finished the season with six consecutive wins, covering five in that stretch, and cashed seven "over" tickets in the last 10 games.

Bowling Green: The Falcons (8-4 SU and ATS) closed the regular season with seven wins in their last eight games, covering the spread in all seven victories. Bowling Green was an "under" bettor's dream with a 10-1 record to the low side of totals, a credit to the defense that ranked seventh nationally in fewest yards allowed (289.7 per game) and eighth in scoring (15.8 points per game allowed).

Cincinnati: Part of a four-way tie for the Big East title, the Bearcats (9-3 SU, 7-4-1 ATS) head to the Belk Bowl without Coach Butch Jones, who was lured away to take the same job at Tennessee. Steve Stripling will serve as the interim coach before Tommy Tuberville takes over in 2013. Cincinnati finished the regular season on a 4-1 run both SU and ATS.

Duke: Despite closing 0-4 both SU and ATS, the Blue Devils (6-6 SU and ATS) are taking part in the bowl season for the first time since 1995. Senior quarterback Sean Renfree directed the Duke offense with more than 2,700 yards passing and 18 touchdowns through the air, throwing for over 400 yards in the regular-season finale along with four TD strikes, including a 99-yarder to his favorite target Jamison Crowder.
