Predictions for Every College Football 2016-2017 Bowl Game

Predictions and picks for all 41 postseason games.

College football’s bowl season kicks off on Saturday, Dec. 17 and continues until the national championship in Tampa, Fla. on Jan. 9. With the bowl lineup set and confidence pools and pick’em contests set to start on Dec. 17, four writers for Athlon Sports share predictions for every bowl.

 

Five games dot the first Saturday of action and eight other matchups are scheduled before Christmas. The bowl slate resumes after Christmas with three games on Dec. 26 and features matchups every day until Jan. 1. The New Year’s Six matchups start on Dec. 30 with the Orange Bowl, followed by three games on Jan. 2.

 

The third College Football Playoff starts on Dec. 31, with Alabama-Washington slated for the Peach Bowl and Clemson-Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. Alabama is the favorite to win it all once again, and coach Nick Saban’s team is trying to go back-to-back after claiming a championship victory over Clemson last year. The Crimson Tide’s championship run starts in Atlanta against Washington, and if Saban’s team knocks off Washington, a rematch against Clemson or a date with Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes is on tap in Tampa. 

 

Note: Number in parentheses indicates confidence in prediction. A No. 40 ranking indicates more confidence in the prediction, while a lower number indicates less confidence in a pick.
