Foolish 2007 College Bowl Picks

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)

Emerald

Meineke Car Care

AutoZone Liberty
WINNER: MISSISSIPPI STATE

Valero Alamo
WINNER: PENN STATE

  • 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?)
