Holiday Bowl: 22 USC vs 16 Iowa

Jacob: Iowa 20 – 13 USC

Two bad offenses, but Iowa’s D is better.

Preston: USC 24-20 Iowa

Kedon Slovis will give the Trojans hope heading into next year

Chris: Iowa 27 – 17 USC

Preston: Air Force 33-21 WSU

Chris: Washington State 45 – 22 Air Force 


Goodyear Cotton Bowl: 17 Memphis vs 10 Penn State

Jacob: Memphis 34 – 31 PSU

If Sean Clifford doesn’t play, expect the high-flying Memphis offense to roll. Bean head with yet another L.

Preston: Penn State 35-21 Memphis

I’ve been making college football predictions since my Sophomore year, and here we are, in one of my final college football articles. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it one last time. Beanhead with the dub. 

Chris: Penn State 38 – 34 Memphis 

This is a close one for me but Penn State is just the better team and I can’t pick Memphis without Mike Norvell. 


Camping World Bowl: 15 Notre Dame vs Iowa State

Jacob: Notre Dame 31 – 26 Iowa State

Preston: Notre Dame 34-24 Iowa State

Redbox Bowl: Cal vs Illinois

Jacob: Cal 37 – 27 Illinois

Preston: Illinois 20-13 Cal (OT)

Chris: Illinois 34 – 28 Cal


Capital One Orange Bowl: 9 Florida vs 24 Virginia

Jacob: Florida 26 – 14

Florida may be the most overrated team in football, but they’ll dismantle the Cavaliers easily just as Clemson did.

Preston: Florida 51-10 Virginia

I think the fact that Virginia is in this bowl game is a disgrace to the sport. I know they are the second best ACC team, but there are so many teams that could have been in this game that deserve it more (Utah, Alabama, Notre Dame). Expect a blowout. 

Chris: Florida 38 – 16 Virginia 

Florida is clearly the better team. The committee just needed another team to put in this bowl to keep the tradiontal SEC vs ACC matchup. I believe they should move away from this and put to teams that actually deserve to be there. Florida will roll over an inept Virginia team 


Belk Bowl: Virginia Tech vs Kentucky

Jacob: VT 30 – 27 UK

Preston: VT 33-23 UK

Chris: Virginia Tech 30 – 16 Kentucky 


Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl: Florida State vs Arizona State

Jacob: ASU 35 – 27 FSU

Tony’s gonna love this one, with the Sun Devils taking the Frosted Flakes!

Preston: ASU 34-20 FSU

I’m hoping to see an encounter between Herm Edwards and Tony at some point during this game. 

Chris: Arizona State 44 – 17 Florida State 

I’m only watching this to see Tony! He’s my favorite! 


Autozone Liberty Bowl: 23 Navy vs Kansas State

Jacob: Navy 48 – 40 KSU

Give me the Midshipmen’s unique offense and powerful run game

Preston: KSU 24-23 Navy

Chris: Navy 30 – 28 KSU


Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl: Wyoming vs Georgia State

Jacob: Wyoming 30 – 21 GA State

Preston: Wyoming 37-14 Ga State

Chris: Wyoming 24 – 14 Georgia State 


Valero Alamo Bowl: 11 Utah vs Texas

Jacob: Utah 45 – 10 Texas

Horns down, Utah with a big win over the worst Texas team in recent history

Preston: Utah 40-20 Texas

Utah will be motivated after an ugly loss. 

Chris: Utah 35 – 23 Texas 

Texas will look to redeem themselves after a poor season and bounce back for next year. Instead,  Utah will be too much though capping off a respectable season. 


Outback Bowl: 18 Minnesota vs 12 Auburn

Jacob: Auburn 31 – 30 Minnesota

Off of a gigantic Bama W, Bo Nix and recently-saved Gus Malzahn will get the W.

Preston: Minnesota 31-24 Auburn

There is usually at least one surprise outcome every bowl season. It’s not that Minnesota is a bad team, but everyone is on the Auburn bandwagon after they beat Alabama. Give me the better coached team here. 

Chris: Auburn 38 – 24 Minnesota 

Auburn is a lot better than I have given them credit for. Tigers will end on a good note and hope to contend for a Playoff spot next year. 


VRBO Citrus Bowl: 14 Michigan vs 13 Alabama

Jacob: Bama 38 – 13 Michigan

Michigan got whooped by OSU their last game. Expect nothing less against an all-around great Bama squad (except QB)

Preston: Bama 31-26 Michigan

This will be one of the more exciting games, as Michigan is able to move the ball on a shaky Alabama defense. 

Chris: Alabama 34 – Michigan 32 

Nick Saban will find a way even with a backup quarterback who has not shown up.


Rose Bowl: 6 Oregon vs 8 Wisconsin

Jacob: Wisconsin 33 – 19 Oregon

For the first half of the B1G championship, Wisconsin looked like a playoff team. If they can keep that up, a blowout is in store.

Preston: Wisconsin 24-20 Oregon

This will be a classic Rose Bowl game. Very physical, beautiful stadium, and a down to the wire finish. 

Chris: Wisconsin 38 – 35 Oregon 

This will be hands down the most fun bowl game to watch aside from the Playoffs (unless there is a blowout). The “Grand Daddy of em’ all” will live up to the hype this year.


Allstate Sugar Bowl: 5 Georgia vs 7 Baylor

Jacob: Georgia 20 – 16 Baylor

Yea, Justin Fields > Jake Fromm. But, Jake Fromm > Baylor Third-Stringers

Preston: Georgia 24-13 Baylor

Baylor has been a pleasant surprise all season, but they just don’t have the talent to knock of the ‘Dawgs.

Chris: Georgia 34 – 10 Baylor 

Baylor had a nice season but I am done hearing about them. Next question. 


Ticketsmarter Birmingham Bowl: Boston College vs 21 Cincinnati

Jacob: Cincy 24 – 14 BC

Preston: Cincy 28-25 BC

Chris: Cincy 45 – 28 Boston College 

Cincinnati will end their season on a good note as they might be kissing Luke Fickell goodbye…


Taxslayer Gator Bowl: Indiana vs. Tennessee

Jacob: IU 34 – 28 Tennessee

Preston: IU 35-27 Tennessee

Chris: Indiana 31 – 17 Tennessee 


Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: Ohio vs Nevada

OU, Oh yeah baby!

Preston: Ohio 30-10 Nevada

Chris: Nevada 27 – 13 Ohio 


Armed Forces Bowl: Southern Mississippi vs Tulane

Jacob: Tulane 21 -13 Southern Miss.

Preston: Tulane 27-16 Southern Miss

Chris: Southern Miss 23 – 7 Tulane

Jacob: Louisiana 40 – 27 Miami

Preston: Miami 23-21 Louisiana 

Chris: Miami 24 – 17 Louisiana
