35 bowls...35 predictions (and my Fave Five)

And, no, the corporate sponsors of these bowls are not included in this list unless I had no choice but to list them. (I think you'll get over it.)

NEW MEXICO: Temple over Wyoming
IDAHO POTATO: Utah State over Ohio
NEW ORLEANS: San Diego State over LA-Lafayette
ST. PETERSBURG: FIU over Marshall
SAN DIEGO: TCU over Louisiana Tech
LAS VEGAS: Boise State over Arizona State
HAWAII: Southern Miss over Nevada
INDEPENDENCE: Mizzou over UNC
LITTLE CAESAR'S: Purdue over Western Michigan
BELK: Louisville over NC State
MILITARY: Toledo over Air Force
HOLIDAY: Texas over California
CHAMPS SPORTS: Notre Dame over Florida State
ALAMO: Baylor over Washington
ARMED FORCES: Tulsa over BYU
PINSTRIPE: Rutgers over Iowa State
MUSIC CITY: Mississippi State over Wake Forest
INSIGHT: Oklahoma over Iowa
TEXAS: Northwestern over Texas A&M
SUN: Utah over Georgia Tech
LIBERTY: Cincinnati over Vanderbilt
FIGHT HUNGER: UCLA over Illinois
CHICK-FIL-A: Virginia over Auburn
TICKETCITY: Houston over Penn State
OUTBACK: Michigan State over Georgia
CAPITAL ONE: South Carolina over Nebraska
GATOR: Ohio State over Florida
ROSE BOWL: Oregon over Wisconsin
FIESTA: Oklahoma State over Stanford
SUGAR: Virginia Tech over Michigan
ORANGE: Clemson over West Virginia
COTTON: Arkansas over Kansas State
COMPASS: SMU over Pitt
GO DADDY: Northern Illinois over Arkansas State
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP: LSU over Alabama

And if I were "forced" to watch only 5 of these games (and my lovely wife would never do such a thing to me), then...

5. Baylor vs Washington (Robert Griffin is a dynamo)
4. Arkansas vs Kansas State (Just because)
3. Virginia vs Auburn (It's become a New Year's Eve tradition in our house to watch this one)
2. Oregon vs Wisconsin (Rose Bowl will always be among my favorites)
1. LSU vs Alabama (Let's hope the drama of the first game is there, but so are the offenses)
