It’s time for Part 2 of our Pick 6! College Football Bowl Mania Special. Today, we will pick the next 6 bowl games.
Bowl Record: 5-1
Confidence Points Earned: 78
Hawaii Bowl (Fresno State Vs. SMU)
Now Fresno State is coming off a 9-3 season after going 4-8 last year. New Head Coach Tim DeRuyter boldly predicted a conference championship in his first year and he was right as they were crowned Co-Champions of the Mountain West. SMU were thought to be a darkhorse for a BCS bid from a non-automatic qualifying conference. But they stumbled to a 6-6 record getting blown out by Texas A&M and Baylor. Now June Jones, head coach of SMU, is going back to his old head coaching job and the last time they were in the Hawaii Bowl, they beat Nevada badly. I think SMU pulls off the upset but I am not that confident in it.
SMU beats Fresno State 35-24 (Confidence Points: 10)
Little Caesars Bowl (Western Kentucky vs. Central Michigan)
The Little Caesars Bowl is the game most people overlook but ends up being an exciting football game. Western Kentucky is without their head coach as he left for South Florida. Although the Hilltoppers have a great coach in Bobby Petrino coaching them, it won’t be until next year. Central Michigan will have the fan advantage and I think they will pull off an upset as well.
Central Michigan wins 24-21 (Confidence points: 7)
