Well it’s that time of year again, where companies shamelessly pay money to have their name atached to an athletic competition. In other words it’s bowl season in college football, featuring the newest member, The Home Depot Fight Anger of Delaware Bowl. Still, most of the names are pretty ridculous. I’m here to preview and give accurate predictions* to every game, as well as comments for the bigger ones.

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl
Illinois vs UCLA
Prediction: Illinois. Only because there can’t really be a tie between two suprememly dissapointing teams.
Auburn vs Virginia
Prediction: Virginia. Why not? Auburn struggles to score.
Houston vs Penn State
Prediction: Penn State. Keenum and the Cougars play an actual defense, so they’ll have trouble adjusting and lose.
Capital One Bowl
Nebraska vs South Carolina
Prediction: South Carolina. What do you think the over/under on those stupid commericals with the vikings being shown during this game?
Georgia vs Michigan State
Prediction: Michigan State. As great as Georgia’s rise has been, Sparty’s defense is too solid.
TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl
Florida vs Ohio State
Prediction: Neither. Urban Meyer shows up and all media attention turns to him and we all forget an actual game is being played.
AT&T Cotton Bowl
Arkansas vs Kansas State
Prediction: K-State. Might as well be a BCS bowl since it pits the two best teams NOT in a BCS game.
BBVA Compass Bowl
Pittsburgh vs SMU
Arkansas State vs Northern Illinois
Prediction: NIU. Their QB is named Chandler Harnish, which doesn’t really sound like a ‘football’ name, does it?
Vizio Rose Bowl
Oregon vs Wisconsin
Prediction: Oregon. The Ducks’ explosive offense takes on the Badgers’ tenacious defense. Speaking of explosive, LaMichael James and Montee Ball will be trying to show each other up the whole game.
Tostitos Fiesta Bowl
Oklahoma State vs Stanford
Prediction: Stanford. Both have high-powered offenses, but the Cardinal defense will limit Weedon enough for Luck to work his magic.
AllState Sugar Bowl
Michigan vs Virginia Tech
Prediction: Michigan. As if you expected me to pick VT in this one.
Discover Orange Bowl
Clemson vs West Virginia
Prediction: Clemson. Does the Big East even deserve an automatic bid after all its good teams defect?
BCS Nati0nal Championship Game
LSU vs Alabama
Prediction: LSU. I might not even be awake by the time the rematch of the Snoozefest Bowl ends. If either team scores a touchdown, it’ll be a miracle.
