2006 Liberty Bowl Odds

South Carolina over Houston by six in the 2006 Liberty Bowl odds is what the lines makers are posting. The Cougars had a very successful season for the school after going 0-11 only a few years ago. This year though the team is 10-3 and captured it’s first Conference USA title in 10 years. Houston also has plenty of motivation to play well since they haven’t won a bowl game since back in 1980, were beaten 42-13 last year in the Fort Worth Bowl. Offense is the name of the game for the Cougars as they are putting up nearly 33 ppg, gaining 4.9 yards per rush and 8.6 yards per pass attempt.

Spurrier has been known as an offensive genius, but the Gamecocks have been playing SEC-like defense. Away from home South Carolina is giving up only 15 ppg against some pretty good opponents. Spurrier does have the passing game under control with 62% pass completions and 8.2 yards per pass attempt, so don’t expect them to slouch on that side of the ball. South Carolina has lost it’s five game to ranked teams, but is coming off a big win over in-state rival Clemson. Spurrier is hoping for a better bowl performance out of his squad this season though, last year they blew a 21 point lead to Missouri before losing in the Independence Bowl.
