The 2018 Holiday Bowl will bring two top-25 teams to San Diego on New Year's Eve as No. 17 Utah takes on No. 22 Northwestern. Both teams won their respective divisions in the Pac-12 and Big Ten but lost their conference title games, so they'll be looking for a win to help erase that sting of defeat.
Utah is a seven-point favorite with the total at 46 for the 7 p.m. ET kickoff. But before you lock in any selections, be sure to check out the projections from the advanced computer model at SportsLine.
