Picking The New Year’s Day Bowls!

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.
