College football: January bowl predictions
One week of college football left. Time to predict the January bowl games:
TicketCity Bowl: Houston vs. Penn State. Cougars 44-10. Case Keenum says good-bye to college football. Does college football say good-bye to Penn State?
Gator Bowl: Ohio State vs. Florida. Buckeyes 19-10. Ohio State’s problems were off-field induced. The Gators’ problems were not.
Capital One Bowl: South Carolina vs. Nebraska. Cornhuskers 21-19. Do you realize Taylor Martinez still has a year of eligibility left? Seems like he’s been in Lincoln forever.
Outback Bowl: Michigan State vs. Georgia. Bulldogs 17-13. The consolation bowl. Two conference title game losers meet in Tampa.
Rose Bowl: Oregon vs. Wisconsin. Ducks 41-38. Can someone tell me why Stanford is ranked ahead of Oregon? The Ducks won at Stanford. The difference in record is that Oregon played LSU.
Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma State vs. Stanford. Cowboys 35-33. The other two Big 12/Pac-12 bowl matchups went according to script. Texas-Cal? Defense expected to reign, and it did. Baylor-Washington? Offense expected to rule, and it did. So OSU-Stanford should be high-scoring.
Sugar Bowl: Virginia Tech vs. Michigan. Wolverines 58-17. What a career for Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson. Absolutely splendid.
Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs. Clemson. Mountaineers 52-45. Big 12 upset special. Neither team is great. Let’s see. Michigan, Clemson, Virginia Tech, West Virginia. All BCS teams. Do we have too many BCS bowls?
Cotton Bowl: Arkansas vs. Kansas State. Razorbacks 39-21. How will Arkansas defend the KSU single wing?
BVAA Compass Bowl: SMU vs. Pitt. Mustangs 30-20. National upset special. Pittsburgh is a program in turmoil.
GoDaddy.com Bowl: Northern Illinois vs. Arkansas State. Huskies 59-33. These schools have both sent head coaches to major conferences in the last 13 months — NIU’s Jerry Kill to Minnesota, Ark State’s Hugh Freeze to Ole Miss.
