    Game: Las Vegas Bowl (vs. San Diego State), 3:30 p.m., ABC Even though he's only a freshman, Oliver is already one of the top five defenders in the country.

    Game: Las Vegas Bowl (vs. Houston), 3:30 p.m., ABC Kazee (5-11, 190, per school measurements) is not the largest corner in the country. Wyoming found out the hard way last weekend, though, that the senior makes you pay if you throw a poor pass in his direction, as he made two picks in the game. ...

    Thu, 15 Dec 2016

    Game: Las Vegas Bowl (vs. Houston), 3:30 p.m., ABC Scouts view Munson as a top-100 pick because he's an athletic, hard-nosed linebacker who's capable of playing outside or between the tackles.

    Game: Las Vegas Bowl (vs. San Diego State), 3:30 p.m., ABC Wilson is a senior, and while he doesn't get the hype that former Houston CB William Jackson did last season, he's still a more than capable player with good size and athleticism who could line up at corner or safety in the NFL.

    Game: Las Vegas Bowl (vs. Houston), 3:30 p.m., ABC Pumphrey is approaching Ron Dayne's record for career rushing yards (though Dayne's bowl statistics weren't counted in his total).

    Game: Las Vegas Bowl (vs. San Diego State), 3:30 p.m., ABC This senior from Cedar Hill, Texas, won't fit every NFL scheme as a 6-1, 225-pound inside linebacker.
