2020 Bowl Record: 4-2
TGIS continues to stay at around 60% after a good Bowl Week start… HERE ARE THE REST OF THE BOWL PICKS
Bowl Game Picks (All Times CST)
Buffalo (-6.5) vs. Marshall – 1:30pm
I’ll never forget about Marshall getting beat 20-0 against Rice… take Buffalo
Louisiana Lafayette vs. UTSA (+14) – 2:30pm
Reminder: UTSA’s game against BYU was single digits… take the points.
Georgia State (-3.5) vs. Western Kentucky – 2:30pm
The Panthers are the much better team than a Western Kentucky that struggles against better teams. Take Georgia State.
Coastal Carolina vs. Liberty (+7) – 6:30pm
Liberty is a good football team that just might win. Coastal Carolina struggled against an average Troy team and I don’t think they finish undefeated, take the points and sprinkle the moneyline.
#18 Miami (+3.5) vs #21 Oklahoma State – 4:30pm
I’ve learned this year I can’t trust Spencer Sanders. On the other hand, D’Eriq King will have a great game and give the Pokes Defense something they haven’t seen. Miami wins by a TD.
#20 Texas (-10) vs. Colorado – 8:00pm
Sure Texas has had players opt out… but I’m not buying the Buffs are as good as their record says they are. Texas in a blowout.
Wake Forest (+9) vs. Wisconsin – 8:00pm
Wisconsin’s offense has gone flat scoring just over 9 points per game over the last four games. Take the points and take the win.
Oklahoma vs. Florida (+7) – 8:00pm
Kyle Trask is going out with a bang. The Sooner defense has not seen an offense like Florida’s which I fully expect to score at least 50. The Florida Defense gets enough stops to win.
#24 Tulsa vs. Mississippi State (+2.5) – 8:00pm
Expect a low scoring slug fest. Both defenses are great but the Bulldogs have just a little bit more offense to win or at least cover.
Ball State vs. San Jose State (-7.5) – 8:00pm
San Jose State is undefeated and will look to finish that way behind the leadership of QB Nick Starkel. Ball State has been messing around in the MAC and will lose by double digits to San Jose State.
West Virginia vs. Army (+9) – 8:00pm
Army was begging for a game and they will come out to play. Army plays slow so nine points is way too many. Also sprinkle the moneyline.
#8 Cincinnati vs. #9 Georgia (-7) – 11:00am
The Bulldogs are playing some of their best football with JT Daniels. I don’t think the Bearcats will be able to score enough to keep up. Especially considering how poorly the AAC has done this bowl season.
Auburn (+3.5) vs. #14 Northwestern – Noon
Sure the coaching staff is a mess. But Northwestern won’t be able to move the ball on Auburn. Auburn will muster a few scores for the win.
#1 Alabama (-19) vs. #4 Notre Dame – 3:00pm
Bama is just too good for Notre Dames defense to stop them and Ian Book won’t be able to put up enough points to keep up. Bama by 30.
#2 Clemson (-7.5) vs. #3 Ohio State – 7:00pm
To beat Ohio State you have to be able to throw against their poor secondary. Well… Trevor Lawrence is going to have a field day. Clemson BIG.
#23 NC State (+2.5) vs. Kentucky – 11:00am
Kentucky had a disappointing year including only a 3 point win over Vanderbilt. NC State has been battle tested in close games. Take the points in this close matchup.
Ole Miss (+8.5) vs. #11 Indiana – 11:30pm
Don’t forget Indiana is on their backup QB. Meaning I can’t see them scoring enough points to keep up with Lane Kiffin’s offense. Ole Miss not only covers… but wins also.
#25 Oregon (+4.5) vs. #10 Iowa State – 3:00pm
Iowa State will struggle to move the ball against a tough Oregon defense. Expect a close defensive battle… so take the points.
#5 Texas A&M (-7.5) vs. #13 North Carolina – 7:00pm
North Carolina has had too many players opt out. Texas A&M is also looking to prove something after being left out of the playoffs. Texas A&M in a blowout.
