The bowls yesterday were good (especially Clemson’s last second win over LSU). The bowl games today should be great.
(Gator Bowl) Northwestern 23, Mississippi State 20: I’m always hesitant to pick a Big Ten team over an SEC team, but Mississippi State has struggled against good teams.
(Heart of Dallas Bowl) Oklahoma State 31, Purdue 20: Yawn.
(Outback Bowl) South Carolina 17, Michigan 13: South Carolina is one of the best teams not in a BCS bowl. Michigan is “only” very good. It won’t be a route, but I like SC.
(Capital One Bowl) Georgia 44, Nebraska 14: Nebraska let up 70 points in the Big Ten Championship game.
(Orange Bowl) Florida State 30, Northern Illinois 14: Northern Illinois could easily be 13-0. That doesn’t make them good enough to take down FSU.
(Rose Bowl) Stanford 17, Wisconsin 13: I really think Wisconsin will play well, but Stanford is tough. Incredibly tough. Just ask Oregon.
