Conference Championship Week-
Its been a few weeks, but we’re back with the final Pick ’em of the year for the most important bowl games this season. It’s been close all year and it all comes down to these last few games. We might pick the title game if it ends in a tie, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. We’ve got some fun games to pick this week, including the New Years 6 bowls and Playoff games, lets get into it.
Cheez-it Bowl, TCU Vs Cal-
Gary Patterson is very good at getting teams prepared after a long rest. TCU wins by 7+
I think the frogs end this strange season on a high note.
New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Miami Vs Wisconsin-
The U’s defense is top notch. Can they control LOS against talented Wisconsin team? I believe so.
I think the Badgers can win the trenches and take this one.
Texas Bowl, Baylor Vs Vanderbilt-
Bears finish year strong and a get a big bowl victory.
Baylor probably feels like their too good to play Vandy, although they’ve been nothing for 3 years now…
Camping World Bowl, West Virginia Vs Syracuse-
No Grier. Big problem for WVU. Give me Dino Babers and company.
I hate this trend of players skipping bowl games, it will bit the Mountaineers in this game.
Alamo Bowl, Iowa State Vs Washington State-
Ozzie- Washington State
Mike Leach and company continue their torrid pace of offense and beat ISU.
Josh- Iowa State
I trust Matt Campbell to have his team prepared. His defense is known to stop air raid offenses, Cyclones when a close one.
Liberty Bowl, Missouri Vs Oklahoma State-
Mizzou and their offense is too much of OSU.
Josh- Oklahoma State
Similar to TCU, I think the Cowboys finish off their strange season with a W.
Citrus Bowl, Kentucky Vs Penn State-
Ozzie- Penn State
Penn State finishes a very roller coaster year and gets their 10th win.
Josh- Penn State
My Nittany Lions didn’t get where I thought they would this year… But if you think I’m bailing on Trace McSorley right night than you are McSorely mistaken!
Gator Bowl, NC State Vs Texas A&M-
Ozzie- Texas A&M
The Aggies finish their season on a good note. Maybe that big recruiting class coming in can help push them to a higher level next year……
Josh- Texas A&M
Kellon Mond has a big game to lead the Aggies to a close victory.
Chick Fil’a Peach Bowl, Florida Vs Michigan-
Shea Patterson rebounds after a rough finish to season. Keep Harbaugh around a bit longer.
I haven’t once this year thought that Florida was actually good. This one could get ugly.
Fiesta Bowl, LSU Vs UCF-
No Milton causes a big issue for UCF. Their win streak comes to an end and they snapback to reality. LSU by double digits.
Im a believer in the Knights. They win another big time bowl and the momentum for expanding the playoffs only grows.
Rose Bowl, Washington Vs Ohio State-
Ozzie- Ohio State
I believe this offense is too much and they come out to prove a point to the CFP committee.
Josh- Ohio State
A Buckeye blowout will also serve as momentum to expand the playoffs.
Sugar Bowl, Texas Vs Georgia-
Sam Ehlinger had a month to get healthy. This senior class wants to finish with a 10 win season. Herman and company make a big statement.
I truly believe in this Texas team, I think they will be a possible playoff team next year. But this year, they’re over matched against a Georgia team.
Orange Bowl and College Football Playoff Semi-Final, Alabama vs Oklahoma-
Tua going “full send” is a big issue to Oklahoma’s defense. Will be a shootout but Alabama is too deep.
This one will be extremely close. Last team with the ball likely wins.
Cotton Bowl and College Football Playoff Semi-Final, Clemson Vs Notre Dame –
Trevor Lawrence and company setup ANOTHER matchup between Bama and Clemson.
Notre Dame had a phenomenal season, but they aren’t ready for Clemson.
