Bowl season rolls along tonight with one of the best named postseason games: the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.

Marshall and USF square off in this game, which is essentially a home game for the Bulls. The game will be played at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium, where USF hosts games during the season.

A win for Marshall makes them 9-4 on the season, while USF can finish 8-5 with a victory.

If ESPN's FPI is correct, this is going to be a tight matchup. The prediction indicates that.

USF is favored, but only slightly. The computer gives them a 51.2 percent chance of winning.

ESPN prediction for USF-Marshall.

USF and Marshall will kick off at 8 p.m. ET tonight.

ESPN will broadcast the game.
