Game Picks

Last week: 1-0-0
Season: 48-39-2

Saturday, December 20th, 12:30 PM PST
ROYAL PURPLE LAS VEGAS BOWL
Colorado State (+3) over #22 Utah

As the nation's best punter, Australian Tom Hackett won the Ray Guy Award and was named as a consensus all-American. This just helps my prediction that by 2020, all head coaches will make a recruiting trip Down Under at least once a year.

Saturday, December 27th, 11:00 AM PST
HYUNDAI SUN BOWL
#15 Arizona State (-7.5) over Duke

The Sun Devils have signed a new apparel deal with Adidas, leaving its contract with Nike next summer. This is great news, but now all of my t-shirts are obsolete :(

5:00 PM PST
NATIONAL UNIVERSITY HOLIDAY BOWL
#24 Southern California (-6.5) over Nebraska

LenDale White is still pushing for Justin Wilcox's firing:

Tuesday, December 30th, 7:00 PM PST
FOSTER FARMS BOWL
Maryland (+14) over Stanford

What's former head coach Jim Harbaugh up to? Other than being seriously linked to Michigan, it came out this week that Harbaugh won a game of laser tag by repeatedly shooting a 10-year old child. Hey, you can't leave those points on the field.

Wednesday, December 31st, 1:00 PM
VIZIO FIESTA BOWL
#20 Boise State (+3) over #10 Arizona

This is actually all part of an elaborate snap cadence:

Thursday, January 1st, 2:00 PM PST
ROSE BOWL GAME PRESENTED BY NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL
#2 Oregon (-9) over #3 Florida State

On second thought, maybe Mariota will stay at Oregon for his senior year.

Friday, January 2nd, 3:45 PM PST
VALERO ALAMO BOWL
#11 Kansas State (+1) over #14 UCLA

UCLA players will receive a GoPro for participating in the Alamo Bowl. ASU players will receive hair dryers for participating in the Sun Bowl. While UCLA might have won the regular season meeting between these two, its safe to say that the Sun Devils have prevailed in bowl swag.

7:15 PM PST
TICKETCITY CACTUS BOWL
Washington (-5.5) over Oklahoma State

Why is this game on January 2nd?

Anyways, bye, everybody! Happy Festivus! Hopefully I have one more game to pick this season.
