I'm making shallow, vague, uninformed, thoughtless predictions of every Bowl game this year. These games are from Sunday to Friday.
R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl
New Orleans, LA
Southern Miss vs. Troy
Sun Belt Champion Troy against a 6-6 Southern Miss team. Southern Miss is closer to New Orleans, only about 2 hours away, but that's about all they have going for them. Troy wins 38-20. The girl is Diane Kruger, who played Helen of Troy in Troy.
San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl
San Diego, CA
#9 Boise State vs. #11 TCU
The Pac-10 didn't have enough eligible teams for this game, so it is WAC vs. Mountain West. And what a matchup we'll get to see because of it. Boise State finally gets tested, and tested hard. TCU is 10-2. Those losses were on the road to #1 Oklahoma, and #6 Utah (13-10 score in that game). I think they derail Boise State's perfect season and win 38-35.
Sheraton Hawaii Bowl
Hawaii vs. Notre Dame
There's only one word to describe Notre Dame... pathetic. This will be the 10th straight bowl that the Irish lose. Hawaii is hard to beat in Honolulu, but they would win this game if it were in South Bend, Alaska, or Mars. Notre Dame sucks. Hawaii 103, Notre Dame -2.
Motor City Bowl
Florida Atlantic vs. Central Michigan
FAU went 6-6 playing in the Sun Belt Conference. CMU was 8-4 in the stronger MAC. CMU's also playing 150 miles from their campus. Prediction: CMU 34, FAU 6. (The picture is of swimsuit model Shay Lyn, a CMU alum) CMU is in a bowl game and Michigan isn't! HAHAHAHAHA!
