West Virginia 37, Florida State 17 (take WVU, -3)
This is an even game if Florida State has its QB (Ponder) healthy. They do not. I don't think WVU is that good - but they will roll in the Bowden Bowl.
Capital One Bowl
LSU 27, Penn State 20 (take LSU, pick 'em)
PSU was my pre-season selection to win the BCS championship - that probably tells you about my skill at picking games. I am picking angry, and picking against them. Also, my SEC-over-Big 10 bias is in play again.
Rose Bowl (or the Bowl to blame for not having a playoff)
Oregon 38, Ohio State 12 (take Oregon, -5)
Ohio State is boring. Oregon's uniforms are not.
Florida 52, Cincinnatti 21 (take Fla, -13)
I have never spelled Cincinatti correct on the first try. And seriously, is anyone outside of Ohio actually picking the Bearcats?
I also take this as a bad sign: when you click on the "preview" on ESPN.COM for this game, the following headline greets you:
No. 4 Cincinnati starts practice for Sugar Bowl
I know that it's probably a dated headline, but it does kinda make you wonder exactly WHEN (and IF) they are in any way ready for this game after the coaching situation.
