A capsulized look at Saturday’s college football bowl games.
Texas Tech (6-6) vs. South Florida (9-2)
Saturday, 9 a.m., ESPN
USF won this game last season, but somehow the school was still referred to by an incorrect name (South Florida University) on some of the official bowl merchandise this year. The Bulls are looking to reach double-digit wins for the second time in program history, after finishing 11-2 last year. Texas Tech had the country’s 11th-best passing offense (326.8 yards per game), led by quarterback Nic Shimonek (3,547 yards, 30 touchdowns) and receiver Keke Coutee (1,242 yards, nine touchdowns).

San Diego State (10-2) vs. Army (8-3)
Saturday, 12:30 p.m., ESPN
Rashaad Penny will break the San Diego State single-season rushing record if he runs for 107 yards, something he has done in all but two games this year. He leads the nation with 2,027 rushing yards and has topped the 200-yard mark in each of the Aztecs’ last four games. Army rushes for an FBS-best 355.8 yards per game, led by Ahmad Bradshaw’s 130.5 yards per game. The Black Knights won the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy this year for the first time since 1996 and are looking for their first 10-win season since then as well.
