Top College Football Picks & Articles
The Alabama Crimson Tide are one of the trickiest teams to try to handicap this year in any of the bowl games, as the last time we saw them, they were getting beaten on the final play of the game in the wildest fashion against the Auburn Tigers. They’ve got the Oklahoma Sooners in the Sugar Bowl on January 2nd.
The Missouri Tigers had a magical season this year, and though silly rules about a maximum of two teams from any conference making the BCS kept them out of the biggest games of the season, they’ve got a nice consolation prize here in the Cotton Bowl against a team which they used to share the Big XII with, the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
The Clemson Tigers were always the second best team in the ACC this season, and they are going to get a shot to stick up for their conference for the second straight season when they take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Orange Bowl in the fourth of the five BCS bowl games. It remains to be seen whether Head Coach James Franklin is still going to be with the Commodores by the time this bowl game rolls around, but with each passing day, it seems more and more likely that he will be in to coach the team.
In one of the oddest bowl games of the season, the Vanderbilt Commodores will square off with the Houston Cougars in the 2014 BBVA Compass Bowl at Legion Field in Birmingham.
After the first weekend of the NFL playoffs are over with and with just the BCS National Championship Game left to be played, we turn our attention to the Sunday night bowl game in January, the GoDaddy Bowl, where the Ball State Cardinals will take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves.
After 34 bowl games are complete, there will be just one left, and it’s for all the marbles. In historic Pasadena, the Florida State Seminoles and the Auburn Tigers will go to war with one another on January 6th with the winner being named the BCS National Champions.
