The opening day of bowl season Saturday will include a matchup between two ranked teams when No. 20 Fresno State takes on No. 25 Southern California in the Las Vegas Bowl.
With several quarterback-needy teams projected to be picking in the top 10 of the 2014 NFL Draft, many will be focused in on Fresno State standout quarterback Derek Carr as he plays the final game of his college football career against a defense that ranks 16th nationally with 341.2 yards allowed per game.
Carr is just one of a number potential 2014 NFL draft selections playing in Saturday’s game, which is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff in Las Vegas and will be televised on ABC.
