Outrageous College Football Predictions for the New Year's Six Bowls and Playoff Games

By J.P. Scott, 4 months 3 weeks ago
The 2016 college football season was one of the more exciting seasons the sport has had recently. With that being the case, it should come to the surprise of no one that the subsequent bowl season has been just as entertaining. Some unforgettable touchdowns and some very unexpected outcomes have made a usually pedestrian bowl season worth the price of admission.   Now, it's time for...

By Bryan Fischer, 4 months 3 weeks ago
The race for the national title is down to four as the College Football Playoff semifinal games are set. As fun as Alabama against Washington in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and Clemson vs. Ohio State in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl are, the one-on-ones between the names on the back of the jerseys are even juicier than the ones on the front this postseason.   Whether you’re a college...

Sugar Bowl Preview and Prediction: Auburn vs. Oklahoma

By Allen Kenney, 4 months 3 weeks ago
This season’s Sugar Bowl features two teams that don’t look much alike.   Oklahoma revolves around an Air Raid offense that emphasizes tempo and precision passing. Auburn relies on head coach Gus Malzahn’s physical running game and a rugged defense.   In other words, an archetypal Big 12-SEC clash.   Allstate Sugar Bowl: Oklahoma vs. Auburn (New Orleans...

Liberty Bowl Preview and Prediction: Georgia vs. TCU

By Rob McVey, 4 months 3 weeks ago
Prior to the season, it would not have been particularly bold to predict that the TCU Horned Frogs and Georgia Bulldogs would be squaring off in a bowl game at season’s end. However, it would have been bold to assume that two of college football’s heavyweights would be paired up in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl to conclude the 2016 campaign.   It was supposed to be another...

Alamo Bowl Preview and Prediction: Oklahoma State vs. Colorado

By Allen Kenney, 4 months 3 weeks ago
Colorado and Oklahoma State tangled 44 times as conference mates in the Big 8 and Big 12 between 1960 through 2009. This year’s Alamo Bowl, however, is the first time the two programs have faced off on the gridiron since the Buffaloes lit out for the Pac-12 in 2011.   Colorado now plays a decidedly non-Big 12 brand of football under reclamation artist Mike MacIntyre. MacIntyre and...

When Texas A&M (8-4, 4-4 SEC) and Kansas State (8-4, 6-3 Big 12) take the field at NRG Stadium in Houston on Dec. 28 in the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl, it will result in a collision between two former conference foes.   Texas A&M jumped out to a hot start (6-0) before stumbling to a 2-4 finish. Two of the losses were against great teams in No. 1 Alabama and then-No. 25 LSU. A 35-28...

Russell Athletic Bowl Preview and Prediction: West Virginia vs. Miami

By Steven Lassan, 4 months 4 weeks ago
An old Big East rivalry will be renewed on Dec. 28 in the Russell Athletic Bowl, as West Virginia meets Miami for the first time since 2003. It’s always tough to put too much stock in bowl games, but motivation shouldn’t be an issue for either team. The Mountaineers won 10 games for the second time under coach Dana Holgorsen and a victory over the Hurricanes would give this program...

Cactus Bowl Preview and Prediction: Boise State vs. Baylor

By Nicholas Ian Allen, 4 months 4 weeks ago
Had you heard at the beginning of the season that Baylor and Boise State would meet in a bowl game in Arizona, most college football fans would have expected the Bears and Broncos to cap off successful campaigns in the prestigious Fiesta Bowl. Instead, thanks to late-season struggles for both, 6-6 Baylor will face 10-2 Boise State in the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl at Chase Field in Phoenix.   It...
