Two of the nation's top running backs will square off Dec. 31 when Arizona faces Boston College in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl.

Boston College's Andre Williams leads all Football Bowl Subdivision players this season with 2,102 yards rushing this season. Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey has rushed for 1,716 yards and ranks second nationally with 156 yards rushing per game.

The AdvoCare 100 Bowl -- formerly known as the Independence Bowl -- typically matches an Atlantic Coast Conference team against a Southeastern Conference school, but the SEC didn't have enough bowl-eligible teams to send someone to Shreveport this season. The AdvoCare 100 Bowl instead invited Arizona (7-5) from the Pac-12.

Boston College has been one of the ACC's biggest surprises. The Eagles went from 2-10 in 2012 to 7-5 this season.
