Last Year's Odds

During the 2021 edition of the Liberty Bowl, the Texas Tech Raiders faced the Mississippi Bulldogs. Both teams arrived at the event with a 7-6 season record each.

Still, the Red Raiders were placed as the favorite team at odds. That meant that a $180 wager on Texas Tech at a -180 moneyline would earn bettors a $100 profit. On the other hand, having taken a chance on the Bulldogs could have made bettors a $240 profit based on a $100 wager on a -240 Moneyline.

Those bettors who also took a chance and favored the +8.5 and the under 42.5 would have also nailed a solid profit.

Liberty Bowl Scores (Playoffs)

The first edition of the Liberty Bowl featured the Penn State Nittany Lions and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Although Penn State only managed to pull a 7-0 win over Alabama, the stage was set for the Liberty Bowl to become an NCAA football tradition in 1959.

Some editions of the Liberty Bowl have set the stage for large scores. However, only the Colorado Buffaloes were able to come close to breaking the 50-point mark by nailing the largest score recorded by a single team in the 1969 edition of the game.
