Time: 2 p.m. EST
Venue: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium — Annapolis, MD
For the first time since 2018, Duke is set to play in the postseason. The Blue Devils soared past expectations this year in head coach Mike Elko’s first year at the helm.

According to the numberFire college football bowl projections, UCF has a 55.9% chance of winning the Military Bowl.

Kansas Jayhawks (6-6, 3-6 Big 12) vs. Arkansas Razorbacks (6-6, 3-5 SEC)
Time: 5:30 p.m. EST
Venue: Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium — Memphis, TN
The longest postseason drought in all of college football will come to an end in Wednesday evening’s Liberty Bowl. After getting off to a 5-0 start, Kansas struggled throughout most of Big 12 Conference play this season. However, the Jayhawks were able to get a November win to become bowl-eligible for the first time since 2008.
What’s more, QB Jalon Daniels is expected to be close to 100% after missing multiple games in the second half of the season with an injury. Of course, having to tussle with a proud SEC program like Arkansas won’t be easy. The Razorbacks have a star quarterback of their own in KJ Jefferson, leading many to believe that a shootout could transpire in Memphis.
According to the numberFire bowl game projections, Kansas has a 54.0% chance of winning the Liberty Bowl.
