or an anthropologist or something- Here's the tally so far for my Biased Bowl predictions...
POINSETTIA BOWL - Utes v Midshipmen - The Utes won 35 - 32. Perhaps I should have considered Utah's excellent bowl record and their quarterback's abilities - but I didn't -
0 - 1
NEW ORLEANS BOWL - Florida Atlantic vs. Memphis
Owls v Tigers
So I guess that the old burrowing owl is tougher than I thought.
0 - 2
PAPAJOHNS.COM BOWL - Cincinnati Bearcats versus the Golden Eagles of Southern Miss.
The Eagles played tough for their demoted general - but the bearcats proved to be the fiercer foe -
1 - 2
NEW MEXICO BOWL - Lobos of New Mexico verses the Nevada Wolf Pack
Yeah, this game should just be called the New Mexico bowl - oh, wait.
2 - 2
LAS VEGAS BOWL - UCLA vs Brigham Young.
It was a close one (17-16) - but the Cougars were successful.
3 - 2
HAWAII BOWL - East Carolina vs. Boise State
Clearly I had underestimated the prowess of the Pirate -
3 - 3
MOTOR CITY - Central Michigan vs. Purdue
The Big Ten Boilermakers gutted it out - or passed it out - Painter had 546 passing yards and 3 TDs - Purdue wins 51 -48.
4 - 3
HOLIDAY BOWL - Texas Longhorns v ASU Sundevils
as noted below, the Longhorns won, 52 - 34
5 - 3
So, we're over .500 - not too bad - so far...
