Pop-Tarts 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 Pop-Tarts 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 Pop-Tarts Bowl.
The Pop-Tarts Bowl was first played in 1990 – then called the Blockbuster Bowl – where Florida State beat Penn State 24-17 in a top-seven matchup.
