Here’s a score prediction for the Independence Bowl.

ESPN college football writer Adam Rittenberg has made score predictions for all 41 of this year’s bowl games.

You can view them all here.

Below is his prediction for the Independence Bowl, which features Florida State taking on Southern Miss.

Motivation level is a factor in a matchup like this, and the Seminoles brought the energy for interim coach Odell Haggins on Saturday and should want to send the coaching staff out with another win. Running back Cam Akers will end his freshman season with a big performance.

Prediction: Florida State 31, Southern Miss 14

The Independence Bowl is set to kick off at 1:30 p.m. E.T. on ESPN on Dec. 27.
