The 2007 Emerald Bowl matches a pair of teams on the opposite ends of the momentum spectrum

The 2007 Emerald Bowl matches a pair of teams on the opposite ends of the momentum spectrum. Oregon State played its best football of the season down the stretch, winning six of its L7 games, both straight up AND ATS. Maryland was 2 & 4 straight up AND ATS in its L6 games, and finished with just a .500 record. Still, with a month between the teams' regular season finales and this bowl game, the slate is wiped clean. The Beavers are a 4 & point opening favorite and looking for their fourth straight bowl game victory. The Terps are trying to match that same feat, both straight up AND ATS. Also in favor of HC Ralph Friedgen club is the fact that the underdogs have won the L3 Emerald Bowl games, both straight up AND ATS. However, their offense will be matched against OSU's #1 ranked run defense, 2.1 YPR.
