The next to last game of the season before the Tostitos BCS National Championship takes place from AT&T Park in San Francisco on Sunday night with the 2011 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl as the Boston College Eagles take on the #15 ranked Nevada Wolf Pack on ESPN at 9:00pm EST. Online sportsbooks have opened with Nevada as a 7.5-point favorite in Hunger Bowl picks vs Boston College with an over/under betting total of 55. The money line at sportsbooks has listed the Wolf Pack as a -300 favorite in 2011 Hunger Bowl odds and the Eagles as a +250 underdog.

Nevada is an offensive juggernaut that finished 2nd overall in the country. Colin Kaepernick is a threat for both running and passing as he had 2,830 yards via the air and over 1,100 yards on the ground while Vai Taua was the leading rusher with over 1,500 yards. Nevada’s defense was good enough to rank 36th for points allowed. Heading into Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl picks as touchdown favorites, the Wolf Pack finished 12-1 straight up and 7-6 against the spread with 7 of their games going UNDER the total. Nevada won their final 6 games of the season while paying out 4 times in that span.

The Wolf Pack of course are best known for their thrilling overtime upset win over Boise State which earned them a share of the Western Athletic Conference title and their place in 2011 Hunger Bowl odds. Coach Chris Ault is a Hall of Famer. Heading into 2011 Hunger Bowl picks as underdogs, Boston College finished 7-5 straight up and 5-7 against the spread with 9 of their games going UNDER the total. Boston College is a physical “old school” team that ranked 11th for total defense and has a fine back in Montel Harris, who rushed for 1,242 yards and 9 TD’s. The Eagles won their first 2 games, then lost 5 consecutive but rallied to win their final 5 games of the season as 2nd year coach Frank Spaziani got a contract extension after the rally.
