    Since whodey started last to first, I'll go first to last:

    New Mexico - BYU over UTEP

    Humanitarian - N. Illinois over Fresno St. (Normally MAAC teams do terrible in bowls - 3-16 over the last 5 years - but N. Illinois is a high scoring squad that I think can win a shootout over Fresno St.)

    New Orleans - Ohio U. over Troy

    Beef O'Brady - S. Miss over Louisville

    MAACO - Boise State over Utah (A let down for the Broncos and a Duper Bowl for the Utes; it'll be closer than expected but Boise is still one of the best teams in the country)

    Poinsettia - San Diego St. over Navy (Navy usually plays tough in their bowls, but SD St. is a good team that almost knocked off TCU and led Missouri w/ less than a minute to go)

    Hawaii - Hawaii over Tulsa (Expect a 52-49 final but Hawaii wins in their own digs)

    Little Ceasar's - Florida International over Toledo (I'm not picking 3 MAAC teams to win)

    Independence - Air Force over Georgia Tech

    Champ Sports - West Virginia over NC St. (The Big East has done very well in these midlevel bowls over the last 5 years and the Mountaineers are the most complete team in that conference)

    Insight - Missouri over Iowa (It's going to be a rough year for the Big 10; this looks like a mismatch)

    Military - Maryland over East Carolina (Pirates in the Military Bowl is great, but East Carolina gives up more than 43 points a game playing mostly C-USA foes)

    Texas - Baylor over Illinois

    Alamo - Oklahoma State over Arizona (Arizona a Top Ten team for a while has melted down the stretch. I think it will be a close game though)

    Armed Forces - SMU v. Army (June Jones picks up a bowl win)

    Pinstripe - Syracuse over Kansas State (Orange win in NYC)

    Music City - North Carolina over Tennessee

    Holiday - Nebraska over Washington (Huskers destroyed 'em earlier in the year; this one will be closer but same result. Hate bowls which are rematches)

    Car Care - Clemson over South Florida (Tigers almost derailed Auburn)

    Sun - Notre Dame over Miami(FL) (Kelly has Irish hot at the end)

    Liberty - Georgia over Central Florida

    Chick-Fil-A- South Carolina over Florida st.

    Ticket City - Texas Tech over Northwestern (7-5 Big 12 v. 7-5 Big Ten, but Red Raiders haven't given up 70+ in a game)

    Outback - Penn St. over Florida (I changed my mind on this one after Meyer stepped down; Paterno's always tough to go against in a bowl game and the extra turmoil in GatorLand is making me think upset)

    Capital One - Alabama over Michigan State ('Bama is still one of the best teams in the country and waxes the pretender Spartans)

    Gator - Mississippi St. over Michigan (Wolverines have packed it in)

    Go Daddy - Miami (O) over Middle Tennessee (I guess I will pick 3 MAAC teams; Middle Tennessee is the worst team in any bowl)

    Cotton - LSU over Texas A&M (Should be a good tight game with two very good defensive teams. I love the Cotton Bowl; how'd it ever it get passed over for the Fiesta as a BCS bowl?)

    Compass - Pitt over Kentucky (Pitt's playing well and Kentucky's the worst SEC team to make it to a bowl)

    Fight Hunger - Nevada over Boston College (Another WAC win over an AQ conference team)

    Rose - TCU over Wisconsin (The Horned Frogs are for real and another midmajor scores a convincing win in a BCS bowl)

    Fiesta - Oklahoma over UConn (It'll be closer than expected but Sooners have too much firepower for the Big East champs)

    Orange - Stanford over Virginia Tech (Tech's redhot but Andrew Luck is auditioning for pick #1. I think Stanford wins big)

    Sugar - Ohio St. over Arkansas (Surprise! I still think the Big Ten isn't a top conference but the Buckeyes have an experienced team that won a BCS bowl last year and the #2 SEC team doesn't always do well in the BCS such as when Bama got blasted by Utah two seasons ago)

    BCS Championship - Oregon over Auburn (I think this game is a complete tossup, but the universal laws of Karma say the SEC's reign must end.

    There, that about does it!! As for the one pick that pains me the most, I will say that I will be rooting for my Buckeyes, however, to overcome history, namely a 0/10 record against SEC teams, is just too hard to overcome my picking them. :'(

    All good things come to an end; I think Arkansas is ripe for the picking. Besides, I couldn't go against ALL 8 Big Ten teams (though I went with Penn State after Meyer's resignation).

    I say we make each bowl game a point each except for the BCS games which will be awarded 2 points.

    What does everyone think?

    That runs against my egalitarian principles. 1 point apiece like a couple of years ago. http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?threadid=82114&page=&page=5

    I wholeheartedly agree. Since we don't like the BCS that much then no wieghted games should be given extra points. Point a piece and that's it!
