So, far the college football bowl season has been pretty uneventful. I have watched some games like the Baylor vs. Washington game for example, was an exciting, high scoring track meet, but overall college fans have not seen much that would make them jump out of their recliners. Don't worry the big bowls are still to come, and a SEC National championship is sure to heat up fans this winter. Here are my predictions for the important bowls. I will say sorry ahead of time to the college football purest, I did not waste my time on the small bowls.
Monday, January 2
Houston (19) vs. Penn State (22)
Ticketcity Bowl ESPN U 12:00 PM ET
Penn State 31-27
Penn State will win the game in the trenches.
Nebraska (20) vs. South Carolina (9)
Capital One Bowl ESPN 1:00 PM ET
South Carolina 34-20
The SEC teams are too big, mean, and fast.
Michigan State (17) vs. Georgia (16)
Outback Bowl ABC 1:00 PM ET
SEC, enough said.
Ohio State vs. Flordia
Gator Bowl ESPN 2 1:00 PM ET
Ohio State 35-27
The Gators have not been the same since Urban Meyer left, and now he is at Ohio State, oh irony!
Wisconsin (10) vs. Oregon (5)
Rose Bowl ESPN 5:00 PM ET
I like Wisconsin, Russell Wilson and Montee Ball are great. Wisconsin will score a lot points in this shootout, but in the end Oregon is too fast and speed kills!
Stanford (4) vs. Oklahoma State (3)
Fiesta Bowl ESPN 8:00 PM ET
Oklahoma State 45-38
Someone has to win in this shootout.
Tuesday, January 3
Michigan (13) vs. Virginia Tech (11)
Sugar Bowl ESPN 8:30 PM ET
Michigan is ready to make a statement on the big stage.
Wednesday, January 4
West Virginia (23) vs. Clemson (15)
Orange Bowl ESPN 8:30 PM ET
Clemson is just too athletic and fast.
Friday, January 6
Kansas State (8) vs. Arkansas (6)
Cotton Bowl 8:00 ESPN PM ET
I will take the SEC team almost everytime. This game should have a ton of offense.
Monday, January 9
Alabama (2) vs. LSU (1)
BCS National Championship ESPN 8:30 PM ET
The best two teams are playing in the BCS National Championship game and that is all college football fans can ask for. LSU maybe the best team in the country(and could be the best college football defense I have ever seen), but it is tough to beat a team as good as Alabama twice. Bama could have won the 1st game, but they missed two field goals. Alabama should find the mark this time and get the win in a defensive struggle. A win for Saban will put his name among the great coaches of all time!
