Line: Toledo by 3.5

Series record: Toledo leads 2-0

What's at stake: Arkansas State is trying to win its third straight GoDaddy Bowl. The Red Wolves beat Kent State in 2013 and Ball State in 2014. Toledo is trying to improve the program's all-time bowl record to 10-4 and end the season on a three-game winning streak.

Key matchup: Arkansas State's defense against Toledo RB Kareem Hunt: The 5-foot-11, 200-pound sophomore has been spectacular this season, with 1,360 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns despite missing three games in the middle of the season with a sprained ankle. He's run for at least 100 yards in all nine games he's played and is averaging 7.9 yards per carry. Arkansas State hasn't been great against the run, ranking 91st in the nation after giving up more than 191 yards per game.

Players to watch: Arkansas State: QB Fredi Knighten. The 5-11, 189-pound junior has quickly adapted to first-year coach Blake Anderson's offense, throwing for 2,874 yards and running for 775 more this season. He's thrown for 19 touchdowns and rushed for 11. Toledo: LB Junior Sylvestre. The 6-0, 222-pound senior was a first-team All-Midwestern Athletic Conference selection for the second straight season after leading the Rockets with 94 tackles, including 9.5 for a loss.
