The Cheez-It Bowl is scheduled to kick off on Dec. 29 at 5:30 p.m. ET during the 2022-23 College Football Bowl Season. The game is held at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, which is also home to the Citrus Bowl (also sponsored by Cheez-It) and the game has been named many things over its 32-year history. The No. 13 Florida State Seminoles (9-3) play the Oklahoma Sooners (6-6). Below, we’ll look at Cheez-It Bowl odds and bowl history.

Florida State is a favorite over Oklahoma in the Cheez-It Bowl. Motivation plays a major factor in this game, as Oklahoma was one of the most underwhelming teams in the nation this year. Relegated to a low-level bowl, do the Sooners show up to play?
The Seminoles ride a five-game win streak into the postseason. They’re at full strength, too, with QB Jordan Travis returning for another season. Star defenders Jammie Robinson and Jared Verse both announced they would play in this game, both of whom are NFL Draft prospects. Their record bowl streak ended in 2018 and, since then, they’ve made just one bowl game (Sun Bowl, 2019).
Oklahoma is without running back Eric Gray and top defensive lineman Jalen Redmond, who declared for the NFL Draft. Perhaps most critical is both starting offensive tackles for the Sooners hit the transfer market. Receiver Theo Wease transferred to Missouri.
OU declined to field a defense this season. When the effort wasn’t there– like against Texas– the defense collapsed completely. While they improved over the season, so did their schedule. The Sooners allowed 40 or more points in five times this year.
Bowl schedulers set up a lopsided matchup in terms of interest in being there and talent on the field. In this instance, ranking does show the disparity between these two teams. Florida State sits atop my bowl confidence pools with a strong 42 points. One team wants to be here, the other is ready for 2022 to end.
Notable Opt Outs
Florida State: None
Oklahoma: RB Eric Gray, DL Jalen Redmond, WR Theo Wease, OT Anton Harrison, OT Wanya Morris
Cheez-It Bowl betting
Last season, Clemson missed out on their first College Football Playoff in six seasons and landed in the Cheez-It Bowl. They beat an underwhelming Iowa State 20-13 in a bizarre game with a strange final unforced fumble by Iowa State’s Brock Purdy. The Tigers won 20-13, covering a two-point spread, but the total of 45 wasn’t low enough and the under cleared.
The game quickly divulged into a meme across the internet, from the strange ending to seeing a college football power like Clemson in it, to the final scene of Dabo Swinney with a giant king Cheez-It mascot and a bowl full of Cheez-It crackers.
Clemson became the latest of six straight favorites to cover in the Cheez-It Bowl/Camping World Bowl. Five unders in that span also cashed. From 1996–2004, the over cashed every year. However, since then, 14 unders have cashed as opposed to just three overs.
Below are historical results of the Cheez-It Bowl.
The Cheez-It Bowl was first played in 1990– then called the Blockbuster Bowl– where Florida State beat Penn State 24-17 in a top-seven matchup.
