    by  • January 1, 2008 • College Football • 0 Comments

    Update: Winners updated. Records in future post.

    The holidays have put us a little behind getting our college bowl picks up before the first few games, but hopefully, you had a pretty good idea who was going to win the Papajohns.com Bowl.

    Check out our picks and see who’s right more often than anyone else–Yup, me. I’ll be facing off against a little known college football aficionado, Robert. Our picks are in chronological order, and if he is right more than me, we may just have to make him contribue to FantasyFootballFools.com a little more.

    Cameron weighs in on our post-Christmas games for some insight from a true college football follower.

    (Disclaimer: All three of us are Longhorn alums)

    AutoZone Liberty
    WINNER: MISSISSIPPI STATE

    • Jacob: UCF

    Valero Alamo
    WINNER: PENN STATE

    • Jacob: Penn State
    • Robert: Penn State

    Bell Helicopter Armed Forces

    • Robert: Georgia Tech
    • Cameron: Georgia Tech (Just because)

    Brut Sun
    WINNER: OREGON (Apparently, Oregon is something without Dixon)

    • Jacob: South Florida
    • Robert: South Florida
    • Cameron: South Florida (Oregon is nothing without Dixon; plus, they have a Leaf brother playing QB)

    Gaylord Hotels Music City
    WINNER: KENTUCKY

    • Jacob: Kentucky
    • Robert: Kentucky
    • Cameron: Kentucky (Because they don’t cheat and lose half of their team)

    Insight
    WINNER: OKLAHOMA STATE

    • Jacob: Oklahoma State
    • Robert: Oklahoma State
    • Cameron: Indiana (Never know which OK State team is going to show up)

    Chick-fil-A
    WINNER: AUBURN

    • Jacob: Clemson
    • Robert: Auburn
    • Cameron: Clemson (Great one two punch at RB with Davis and Spiller)

    Outback
    WINNER: TENNESSEE

    • Jacob: Tennessee
    • Robert: Wisconsin
    • Cameron: Tennessee (PJ Hill might not play for Wisconsin, which would mean trouble)

    AT&T Cotton
    WINNER: MISSOURI

    • Jacob: Missouri
    • Robert: Missouri
    • Cameron: Arkansas (Missouri may be a little flat after the Big XII championship loss and may not have the defense to stop McFadden and Jones)

    Konica Minolta Gator
    WINNER: TEXAS TECH

    • Jacob: Texas Tech (I’m a Big 12 man)
    • Robert: Texas Tech
    • Cameron: Virginia (UV actually has the kind of defense that can hurry up Harrell and knock him down, especially with DE Chris Long)

    Capital One
    WINNER: MICHIGAN (Never bet against a team devoted to sending a great coach off right)

    • Jacob: Florida
    • Robert: Florida
    • Cameron: Florida (Florida played a way tougher schedule than Michigan, and it will show)

    Rose Bowl Presented by Citi–they paid us to say that
    WINNER: USC (Illinois should have never been in a bowl game. They certainly weren’t in this one.)

    • Jacob: USC
    • Robert: USC
    • Cameron: USC (I will be pulling for Illinois, but their athletes can’t match up to USC)

    Allstate Sugar
    WINNER: GEORGIA (I guess he is a system QB and/or the Hawaii linemen or worthless sacks of fatty meat.)

    • Jacob: Hawaii (I don’t think he’s just a system QB)
    • Robert: Georgia
    • Cameron: Georgia (I see this being a very close game with Georgia coming out on top because of their running game)

    Tostitos Fiesta
    WINNER: WEST VIRGINIA (Ouch, Stoops. Has anyone told the OU players lately that the season isn’t over after the Big 12 Championship?)

    • Jacob: Oklahoma
    • Robert: Oklahoma
    • Cameron: Oklahoma (Don’t expect OU to be caught napping again)

    FedEx Orange
    WINNER: KANSAS ( It was a clutch victory for Kansas and for my predictions!)

    • Jacob: Kansas
    • Robert: Virginia Tech
    • Cameron: Virginia Tech (Their D will hit Kansas in the mouth)

    International
    WINNER: RUTGERS (Was there any doubt? Ball State?)

    • Jacob: Rutgers
    • Robert: Rutgers
    • Cameron: Rutgers (Who cares?)

    GMAC
    WINNER: TULSA (I’m sorry if you watched this game. REALLY sorry.)

    • Jacob: Tulsa
    • Robert: Tulsa
    • Cameron: Tulsa (I love their offense, especially with Paul Smith running the show)

    Allstate BCS Championship Game
    WINNER: LSU (Can we just put OU and OSU in the same boat and say, “Stop trying.”)

    • Jacob: LSU
    • Robert: LSU
    • Cameron: Ohio State (Because the BCS wouldn’t allow a two-loss champion, would it?)
