Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl Football PredictionVenue: Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl Game

When: Saturday, December 17, 2016 - 3:30 p.m. ET / ABC

Where: Las Vegas, NV. - Sam Boyd Stadium

Who: Houston Cougars vs. San Diego State Aztecs

Some new blood is coming to the Las Vegas Bowl. For years upon years, it's felt like at least one school from the state of Utah has played in this game, and if either Utah and/or BYU wasn't there, it was Boise State representing the Mountain West.

This year, with the San Diego State Aztecs winning the MWC, they'll get to come to Sin City for the first time since 1998, and awaiting them at Sam Boyd Stadium will be the Houston Cougars, who will become the first ever AAC team to play in this game.

The Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl, is one of the first bowl games to take the field every year on the NCAA Bowl schedule and annually host the top choice from the Mountain West vs. a Pacific-12 Conference.

The Royal Purple Las Vegas bowl ( formerly the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas ) is an NCAA-sanctioned Division I-A post-season college football bowl game that has been played annually at 40,000-seat Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada since 1992.

The Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl this year will play on Saturday, Dec. 17th, 2016, at 3:30 p.m. with the fine folks at ABC.

As it played out, Western Michigan earned that spot, and that left both the Cougs and the Aztecs out of the big time bowl games. That said, they've got a great game against each other lined up in the Las Vegas Bowl on the first Saturday of the bowl bash, and this could end up being one of the most looked forward to games of the early portion of the bowl season.

Las Vegas Bowl Betting Tips

One of the first things to look for when examining the college football bowl odds is the current form of the teams. Some teams are coming into the bowl game playing very well, while others are coming in flat or disappointed.

Motivation is a big key factor when it comes to looking at college football bowl betting lines, we also have to look at other things.

Schedule strength, turnovers, recent form, and overall team power ratings are things to consider as the bowl games begin. You also want to take the individual game odds into consideration.

Las Vegas Bowl History

In 1992, the Las Vegas Bowl was created as a post-season game between the Mid-American and Big West champions, replacing the California Bowl and the Raisin Bowl. Since 1997, it has matched a WAC team against an at-large opponent.
