SBNation’s Bill Connelly Has Maryland Winning 2016 Quick Lane Bowl

But by the slimmest of margins....

NCAA Football: Connecticut at Boston College Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

If you haven’t already, SB Nation’s Bill Connelly is a must follow on Twitter. He’s smart, insightful and funny. As part of his yearly analysis of teams and matchups he made a projection today of all the upcoming bowl games. Bill makes his projections through his S&P projection system. Vegas has Maryland as a one point favorite, and Bill Connelly doesn’t disagree.

Yes, Bill has the projected win margin as .1. That is about as slim of a victory projection as you can get. And as you look at it further, you can see that Maryland just barely has the edge in terms of win probability. In fact BC/Maryland has the closest projected margin/win probability, followed closely by LSU/Louisville in the Citrus Bowl and UNC/Stanford in the Sun Bowl.

Boston College and Maryland will face off in the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit, at 2:30 on ESPN on December 26th. Of course check back here at BC Interruption for all of your analysis and coverage lea
