Rules are simple, cut-n-paste the text. Use the Bold function and highlight who you think wins. -1 for a wrong pick, +1 for right pick. For the Championship game gotta pick who is in it and who wins.

Will be hard to pick winners and losers with portal transfers, coaches leaving/going, NFL sit outs. A lot of variables. Good luck!

If you are late to pick after games start, just go ahead and give yourself a -1 for games you missed. Just for fun, informal, and try to make the upcoming bowl games interesting as hard as that may be!

You can change your pick up to gameday and don't have to pick all games at once.

So many utterly meaningless games.

Between the transfer portal, players sitting out, interim coaches, and lack of playoff implications, I'd rather just see these guys take the month off and enjoy a holiday rather than play a 13th or 14th game.

I get the point it is meaningless to some. But, an extra 15 practices, getting younger players in the game. Some players looking to advance. Money for the schools and conference. Fans an excuse to travel to uh...birmingham alabama...etc. Plus, it is momentum into the spring game. Bragging rights, yes, Any gator fan I met in person gets reminded of last year's gasparilla bowl. Etc etc etc...Plus, it's good college football fodder for social media. Thus, long live bowl games... But, yes, most are meaningless to the casual sport's fan. Whatever, it is what it is...What's your pick? It will make it more interesting. First games tomorrow, Friday, Dec 16th. Don't let me win and brag about it in the end.

My pick? Duke beats UCF, because they want it more. I hope it turns out to be more of a UF/Gasparilla replay than a BYU replay, but I'm not optimistic.

I'm picking UCF to beat Duke. Plumlee hamstring will be healthy. Duke Qb is pretty good and they have a good defense and yes, they probably 'want it more'. It's duke first bowl game since 2018. But, hopefully UCF is taking this game serious and use it for a springboard into the big12. Recruiting signing day is dec 21, and transfers coming and going from UCF. UCF just picked up another Bama Wr transfer. But, that is for next year. With just one pick, your score will be either a -1 or a +1. You may win with that!

Hard to believe Uconn made a bowl game, but Marshall beat Notre Dame this year.

For a discussion, tomorrow's game between Troy and UTSA is interesting due to the top 25 ranking. Cure bowl is in Orlando. Friday probably will be great weather for attending a bowl game. If i wasn't busy I'd consider going.

Gators playing pre christmas bowl with 28 players left the team and a qb that is who? Oregon State probably gonna romp those gators in nevada.

Also, of note, the Cinci vs Lousville game....Coach fickle of course moved over to Wisky, but Louisville coach is now head coach for Cinci. Oops. Don't give away any secrets on how to beat Louisville.

Gotta confess, when I first saw Miami in a bowl game, I rolled my eyes and asked how bad things have gotten if they let this year's 'Canes into a bowl game.

Rereading caught the Ohio part, and partly restored my faith in humanity.

Miami over UAB, Oregon State over UF, FSU over Oklahoma.

Michigan beats TCU, then Georgia beats Ohio State and Michigan for all the cheese.

Thanks, great link. The internet traffic between Vegas and that site has probably already jammed some routers.

That's exactly what I was looking for before I opened my mouth with the UCF/Duke prediction. I did see another site that mentioned a few Duke players as questionable that weren't reported by your link (yet). Nowhere near as many as I knew would be absent from UCF. Those factors are going to play a big role in a lot of these bowl games.

Miami 20 UAB 24. That was a pretty good game to watch. Went to the final play. I picked UAB
Troy 18 UTSA 12. I didn't watch this game. I picked utsa. how you score 12 points and 18?

I got +1 and a -1 for Friday games so my score for first day is: 0 points.
