The TRUTH about Sports

Week 15 College Bowl Picks

top252.jpg1- BCS Title Bowl – Ohio State better than everyone thinks. LSU not as good as everyone thinks. Close throughout, but look for the Buckeye defense to be the difference. Take Ohio State +4.5..
2- The Rose Bowl – Another Rose Bowl, another USC appearance. The Trojans one of the hottest teams in the nation. Illinois with their hands full, but they did beat the number one team in the nation earlier in the year. SC more powerful, more talented, more experienced. Illinois won’t know what hit them early, may make a run late. I like USC -14.
3- The Sugar Bowlpadlock3.jpg Maybe the second hottest team in the nation, the Georgia Bulldogs look to feast on some Warriors. Hawaii has their hands full. They will realize what it’s like to play a real team. Georgia routs. My lock! Take Georgia -9.
4- The Fiesta Bowl – Not a bad consolation game for a team who thought they were on their way to the national championship game. Still have a lot to play for, Kansas will have their hands full proving to the nation they are a football powerhouse. Virginia Tech getting better as the season progressed should take care of business. I like Virginia Tech -4.
5- The Orange Bowl – No championship game… no head coach either. Rodriguez leaves and so will the Mountaineer’s winning records. The Sooners, already the favorites in this one, should cruise past a West Virginia team coming off their worst losses of the season. Their coach and their last game. Take Oklahoma -8.
6- Capital One Bowl – The best three loss team in the nation, the Florida Gators look to start their national championship run for next year with this years bowl game. Michigan may have found their new head coach, but they won’t find a way to beat the faster, more talented Gators. Take Florida -10.5.
7- Cotton Bowl
– Missouri with a lot to prove, will come out with guns blazin’ in this one. Arkansas happy to be there, won’t know what hit them. The Tigers the better team, but they have to find a way to stop Run DMC. Razorbacks will keep it close early, but won’t be able to outscore the Tigers. Take Missouri -3.5.
8- Gator Bowl – Should be an entertaining game throughout. Evenly matched, the team to make the least errors will prevail. Both Texas Tech and Virginia looked good at times throughout the season, but inconsistent play prevented better records. I like Virginia +6.
9- Outback Bowl
– Badgers started off the season strong, tailed off in the middle, and finished strong. Better than their record indicates, but inconsistent play was their downfall. Tennessee should have beaten LSU in the last game of the year, but costly turnovers blew the game. Turnovers will decide this one as well. The Vols learned their lesson. I like Tennessee -3.5.
10. Chick-Fil-A-Bowl
– Two teams who underachieved this year, look for an entertaining game. Close throughout, the better and more experienced coached Auburn team will prevail over Clemson. Take Auburn +2.
