Last week, I took a shot at reviewing the bowl picture. Here are my views this week:
Florida vs. Texas Tech: Obviously, this weekend has a strong bearing on this.
Oregon State vs. Ohio State: Happy valley ain’t so happy after Saturday.
Alabama vs. Utah: Ok, so the Fiesta Bowl gets the pick before the Sugar Bowl, so I don’t seem them passing on USC, unless a deal is struck.
Texas vs. USC: A rematch? Oh, yeah. Fox will advertise the shit out of this and about seventeen different movies.
Steelers vs. Dolphins: That would be better than the college namesake matchup.
Back of the napkin picks for other bowls involving the SEC:
Capitol One Bowl: Georgia vs. Penn State
Outback Bowl: South Carolina vs. Michigan State
Cotton Bowl: LSU vs. Oklahoma
Peach Bowl: Ole Miss vs. Florida State
Music City Bow: Kentucky vs. Georgia Tech
Liberty Bowl: Vandy vs. Rice
PapaJohn’s Bowl and Independence Bowl: Go ahead and find Sun Belt teams (Troy and Florida Atlantic seem about right) for these.
