January 1st Bowl Game Selections

Outback Bowl(at Tampa, Florida)

Northwestern vs Tennessee        -8.5     The Pick: Northwestern +8.5

NW tries to get it done with D and minimal offence, if Tenn gets off early the game is over, but A) I don’t trust Ten to be focused and B) this game has conisitently been good over the years so I like Ten to win a close one on atheticism and a lack of a passing game from NW

Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl( at Orlando, Florida)

Michigan vs Florida          4.5    The Pick: Michigan -4.5

This will be UGLY, Gators have too many red zone issues with offence and bad kicking game to overcome, even though the have the better defense

Battlefrog Fiesta Bowl( at Glendale, Arizona)

Notre Dame vs Ohio State           -6.5        The Pick: Ohio State -6.5

Assuming both teams show up mentally, which might not happen for different reasons for each team, OSU should get this done behind its running game

Rose Boel Game Presented by Northwestern Mutual( at Pasadena, California)

Iowa vs Stanford              -6.5        The Pick: Iowa +6.5

Given the way the two teams play, it shouldnèt be more than a FG type game, but having the Heisman runner up will be the difference as Stanford gets this done

Allstate Sugar Bowl( at New Orleans, Louisiana)

Oklahoma State vs Mississippi        -7        The Pick: Oklahoma State +7

SEC does not do well in this game, Ole Miss might actually be the better team but likely without DE Nkemdiche and States track record in Bowl games gives them the edge

Bowl Record: 15-16

Enjoy the games everybody and Happy New Year!
