Duke vs. Troy odds, line: 2023 Birmingham Bowl picks, college football predictions from proven simulation


The Troy Trojans can reach numerous historical milestones Saturday when they meet the Duke Blue Devils in the 2023 Birmingham Bowl. The Trojans (11-2) just won the Sun Belt championship for the second consecutive year and, with a Birmingham Bowl victory Saturday, they will reach the 12-win milestone in back-to-back seasons for the first time in program history. What’s more, they will become the first Sun Belt program to defeat a Power Five opponent in a bowl game. On the flip side, Duke (7-5) is seeking consecutive eight-win seasons for the first time in nine years. Both teams are playing for an interim head coach, while Duke quarterback Riley Leonard, who dealt with injuries this season and is now headed to Notre Dame, is the biggest name who will miss this game.
