Each week we will make our picks for that week’s bowls with the winner in Bold. The following week we will make our predictions and then give you a tally of how we have done so far. Winners of the bowls will be in italics, if I was wrong they will have a strike through. This week we went 13-8, a pretty good bounce back. It would have been even better  but some underdogs picked it up. I should have listened to my analysis of the Fiesta Bowl. We are 17-15 overall, this week will decide if I finish with a winning record. Here is our final week of picks.

This Week:

BBVA Compass Bowl
Houston (8-4) vs. Vanderbilt (8-4)
Analysis: Recently I have developed an affinity for the Commodores. I think they have what it takes to beat Houston.

GoDaddy Bowl
Ball State (10-2) vs. Arkansas State (7-5)
Analysis: I would have picked Arkansas State if Harsin and his crew were still there. But teams in coaching transitions don’t usually do that well so I am going with Ball State.

Vizio BCS National Championship
Florida State (13-0) vs. Auburn (12-1)
Analysis: This is a tough one, but I believe more in Gus than Winston.
