If they did, their coach would be fired. Since he is the best they will ever get, they needs to make sure he gives 110% effort
I just dunno how a player would rationalize it in their head. They have no bowl game to play for, they go out there leave it all on the field.... so their instate rival can share a championship?

That'd be a pretty crappy attitude for any athlete to take into a game.

How about they leave it all on the field because they want to win, regardless of the opponent and how it might affect a team they've already played?
player psyche is part of any game and every athlete, this is a fact. I am sure players play harder in "must win" games than other ones. This game is not must-win, their season is over, and beyond all that they would be doing their rivals a favor. Tough spot to be in.

Think 2013 cajuns vs. USA. Post-season and championship already locked up for ULL, USA playing for eligibility, ULL get destroyed.

I suspect you've never played competitive sports. Correct?
