The 2nd half of week 2 wasn’t the best, but picking bowls are like picking your nose after a dust storm. You never know what you’re gonna get.
Bowls: 24-13 (64.9%)
Regular Season: 100-46 (68.5%)
Overall: 124-59 (66.8%)
The final week of bowls has some good matchups. Some matter. Some don’t. The biggest one definitely doesn’t.
Arkansas vs. Penn State – Auburn obviously broke Penn State. They have gone downhill since Auburn went up there and battled valiantly in front of their white out. Arkansas, as always, is annoying and just has the funniest old man coach and isn’t he just so great!
Arkansas 28, Penn State 17
Arkansas 24, Penn State 10 – SUCCESS!
Vrbo Citrus Bowl
Kentucky vs. Iowa – There is nothing more boring than Iowa in a bowl game. There is nothing more fake than pretending Kentucky is good in football because they are better than mediocre against the SEC East.
Kentucky 24, Iowa 7
Kentucky 20, Iowa 17 – SUCCESS!
PlayStation Fiesta Bowl
Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma State – The Cowboys were an inch from possibly being in the playoffs. Instead they get a free PS5 and get to play Notre Dame. That’s a win. And they will win.
Oklahoma State 38, Notre Dame 28
Oklahoma State 37, Notre Dame 35 – SUCCESS!
Rose Bowl Game pres. by Capital One Venture X
Ohio State vs. Utah – This is just like a SEC vs. Big Ten non-playoff game, except Utah is playing the part of the Big Ten team and Ohio State is the SEC team. Ohio State doesn’t care and has tons of opt-outs. Utah is playing their life-proving Super Bowl. Utah is good, though.
Utah 31, Ohio State 27
Ohio State 48, Utah 45 – FAILURE
Allstate Sugar Bowl
Ole Miss vs. Baylor – Here are two teams that are historically bad, but cheated to get fast exciting players to play fast exciting offense. Perfect for New Orleans.
Ole Miss 41, Baylor 31
Baylor 21, Ole Miss 7 – FAILURE
TaxAct Texas Bowl
LSU vs. Kansas State – Well this is the forgotten bowl game. LSU is in a time of transition, and I forgot Kansas State played football this year. And this game is just stuck on the Tuesday between playoff weekends? Weird. I have no idea.
Kansas State 18, LSU 14
Kansas State 42, LSU 20 – SUCCESS!
CFP National Championship Presented by AT&T
Alabama vs. Georgia – If only there was a way to know that Georgia can logically not be the best team in the nation. Oh wait…
I’m not justifying this terrible system’s “championship game” with a pick.
Now that I’ve picked the bowls, you should go join the bowl pick’em. Just make sure you have them in prior to each game, but go ahead and do them all so you don’t have to worry about it. There’s prizes and stuff.
