The New Orleans Bowl finishes out Day One of the 2015 college football bowl season. It's features Sun Belt Conference champion Arkansas State against Louisiana Tech, the second-best team in the C-USA West division. C-USA has arguably gotten a touch lost in the shuffle among Group of Five conferences as the Sun Belt and the MAC have both raises their profile over the past couple of seasons, and The American and Mountain West being the conferences with the best shots at the G5's spot in the New Year's Six bowls. A Bulldogs win over the Sun Belt conference champion Red Wolves could give C-USA a boost in prominence.
