Biased Bowl Blusterings 2007 - The Final Count

I guess that I'm not so good at measuring the mettle of the mascot - of course, a ton of bias was thrown into the mix - which, naturally, affects things. If you send certain energy out into the ether - the football gods are going to react. As I see it - the football forces knew where my true proclivity lay - and they adjusted accordingly. PSU needed some extra oomph to negate a 14 point deficit - kentucky required some intervention to settle their nervous offense - and old michigan needed some serious mojo to upend the One Who May Outshine Them All. So the pixie dust ran a little thin in some of the other match ups - it's understandable.



ARMED FORCES BOWL
Cal v Air Force
Golden Bears vs Falcons

8 - 8

I think it's just mean that the Armed Air Force didn't win.



SUN BOWL
USF vs. Oregon

8 - 9

So the Ducks were mightier -



HUMANITARIAN BOWL
Fresno State v Georgia Tech
Bulldogs v Yellow Jackets

8 - 10

This one surprised me.



MUSIC CITY BOWL
fsu v Kentucky
seminoles vs Wildcats

9 - 10

Kentucky made it interesting for a while - but they won - that's all that really matters.



INSIGHT BOWL
Indiana vs. Oklahoma State

Hoosiers vs Cowboys

9 - 11

Oh well - it was still a good tribute season - Play 13!



CHICK-FIL-A BOWL
Clemson v Auburn
Tigers v. Tigers

9 - 12

Eh, I picked the wrong Tiger - it happens.



OUTBACK BOWL

Wisconsin v. Tennessee

Badgers vs Volunteers

This was one of the roughest and hard fought bowl games, ever. Wiscy did well to stay in it - but Tennessee did better.

9 -13


COTTON BOWL
Missouri v Arkansas
Tigers vs Razorbacks

9 - 14

Mizzou was impressive - they trounced the razorbacks.



GATOR BOWL
Virginia vs. Texas Tech
Cavaliers v Red Raiders

Thought this was going to be a UVA rout - but the raiders clawed their way back.

10 - 14



CAPITAL ONE

Michigan (8-4) vs. Florida (9-3)

Wolverines vs Gators

Best game of the (new year's) day - the heisman curse lives.

11 - 14


ROSE BOWL

Trojans vs Illini

11 -15

Sad - Illinois just made too many mistakes and couldn't recover. USC did this wacky thing - they capitalized on the Illini's errors - gasp.



SUGAR

Hawaii (12-0) vs. Georgia (10-2)

Warriors vs Bulldogs

Disappointing game - I thought that it would be more competitive.

11 -16



FIESTA BOWL
West Virginia (10-2) vs. Oklahoma (11-2)

12 - 17

I enjoyed this game very much. Kept saying "good for you west virginia!"



ORANGE BOWL
Kansas (11-1) vs. Virginia Tech (11-2)

Jayhawks vs Hokies

Alrighty then - I really expected the Hokies to win easily - not so much.

12 -18



INTERNATIONAL BOWL
Rutgers (7-5) vs. Ball State (7-5)

The Knights rolled - Ray Rice had a stellar game. Take off.

13 - 18


GMAC BOWL

Tulsa (9-4) vs. Bowling Green (8-4)

Wow - the hurricane was a powerful force -

14 - 18


BCS TITLE GAME
Ohio State (11-1) vs. LSU (10-2)

So tosu lost, again and the SEC has yet another national championship. oh well.

15 - 18
