We are entering the meat of the college bowl schedule. New Year’s Day approaches. Here are my picks for today’s three bowls:
(Independence Bowl) Louisiana-Monroe 33, Ohio 14: After winning their first seven games, Ohio has lost four out of their last five. I expect the Warhawks to win comfortably.
(Athletic Bowl) Virginia Tech 20, Rutgers 17: Going back to an ugly win over Army, Rutgers has not been playing that well. I think Virginia Tech will come out prepared and squeak out a win.
(Car Care Bowl) Texas Tech 42, Minnesota 17: Minnesota does not have enough offensive fire power to stay with Texas Tech.
