I think some of you people must not actually watch much college football. A few picks:
Motor City Bowl: Memphis vs. Akron. - You should all watch this game because it'll be damn fun. Akron has a heck of an offense and Memphis has one of the nations top running backs. Trust me. After that gutsy performance last weekend by Akron, where they got run all over but still won I'll pick them to do the same thing here.
Alamo Bowl: Michigan vs. Nebraska - hehe....heheheHAHAHAHAHA...oh yeah um Michigan. Definatly Michigan.
Holiday Bowl: Oklahoma vs. Oregon - If the PAC 10 wants any right to complain about being left out Oregon better win. But they won't, so shut up PAC 10.
Peach Bowl: Miami vs. LSU - LSU has not impressed me at all this season. They haven't looked dominating in any way, and struggled against weak teams. Miami sucks on offense, but their defense is more than enough to stop LSU. I'll take the Hurricanes in a low scoring game.
Fiesta Bowl: Notre Dame vs. Ohio State - Ok to anyone saying "blowout" here, what the hell are you smoking? How often does Ohio State blow out anyone? For years now they have played at the level of their competition, whether that's the best or worst team in the nation. You can say "if this" or "if that" then they'd have more blow outs, but you can always seem to say that about THE Ohio State University. Notre Dame hasn't proven as much as some people like to think, but they've got enough to hang in there. This will be very close and OSU will win.
Sugar Bowl(Atlanta): Georgia vs. West Virginia - Do they really have to play this one? Georgia has way more talent and will romp here.
Orange Bowl: Florida State vs. Penn State - Again I see people saying blowout, yet I can't see why. Florida is the only team that put it on FSU badly. Their defense can definatly slow down Penn State. It's just a question of if FSU's offense can keep up, which is hard to tell. With a month to get healthly it may be a different FSU team we see. The one we saw start the season that is. Remember they have been missing four o-lineman. Again it'll be a fun, close game and of course I'm taking FSU cause I have to.
Rose Bowl: Texas vs. USC. I don't get this. How are you people giving a USC team that has looked downright terrible on defense this much credit? This isn't last year when they had a more than solid defense. And this isn't a QB they can shut down like they did last year. USC almost lost to Notre Dame, but Texas can't hang? Whatever dorks. Vince Young will not die. Texas hasn't just won this season, they demolished everyone except for Ohio State, going back to the OSU never "blow out" or gets "blown out" theory. Yes the Big 12 is weak, and yes so is the Pac 10. These two teams will go at each other and it'll be every bit worth the hype. Texas has been to the Rose bowl against top competition(last year, Michigan) and won. And they will again this season.
