Valero Alamo Bowl UCLA Bruins vs Kansas State Wildcats Start Time, Betting Odds, Free Pick

The UCLA Bruins take on the Kansas State Wildcats today in the Valero Alamo Bowl. The game is scheduled for a 6:45 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ESPN. Currently the Betting Odds for the game have the Wildcats listed as a small favorite to get the win in this one.

Hard to believe there are as many bowl games scheduled after the playoff games last night, but it's still college football. UCLA and Kansas State are both ranked inside the Top 15 nationally and were very solid programs this season. This Alamo Bowl features one of the best matchups in any of the bowl games this season as both schools ended the regular season with 9-3 records.

UCLA dropped its most recent game to Stanford, getting beat up pretty good. Prior to that the Bruins had ripped off five straight wins and looked very good doing it. Now Jim Mora Jr. and the Bruins have to find a way to get prepared again as Kansas State is a very good football team. UCLA brings in an offense that can run the football and has no problems allowing QB Brett Hundley to throw it around. Hundley can also make plays with his legs, giving the Bruins a dual-threat option in this game tonight.

Kansas State has their own dual-threat quarterback in Jake Waters, who had a combined 3,600 yards of total offense this season with28 touchdowns. The Wildcats piled up an average of almost 36 points per game as well, but the Big 12 wasn't exactly the best defensive conference in the country. 

UCLA put up 33 points per game themselves, with a very solid running game led by Paul Perkins, who finished with almost 1,400 yards and seven TDs for the season. Hundley was second best in rushing yards for the Bruins, but his arm could be the key to this one. UCLA has a bevy of solid wide receivers that can get up the field and make big plays for the Bruins.

Kansas State is favored by a smidge in this one, and it should be a good game. Both offenses can move the football and we expect that tonight.

Free Pick: UCLA 34, Kansas State 31
