Biased Bowl Picks 2016 - 17. It's All About Meme.

WHAT. A. YEAR.

I can tell you, with great solemnity, that I have not been very successful with my *picks* this year, biased or otherwise. 

But football, as it is until it’s not, has served as a welcome diversion this fall and I thought what better way to commemorate 2016 than with a set of biased picks memes? 

It's the meme generation. 

December 17th 

Gildan New Mexico Bowl
UTSA Roadrunners (6 - 6) vs New Mexico Lobos (8 - 4)
Albuquerque, NM / University Stadium
2:00 pm - ESPN

The Roadrunners are an enticing mascot (beep beep) - and one shouldn’t put much stock into the prospects of the coyote... err Lobos. But I think this is the time that the canine pursuer will overtake his fowl quarry. 
 

Las Vegas Bowl presented by Geico
San Diego State Aztecs (10 - 3) vs Houston Cougars (9 - 3)
Las Vegas, NV / Sam Boyd Stadium
3:30 pm - ABC
I hope the halftime show is a large reenactment of Geico’s *Marco. Polo.* ad... complete with llamas.



Raycom Media Camellia Bowl
Appalachian State Mountaineers (9 - 3) vs Toledo Rockets (9 - 3)
Montgomery, AL / Cramton Bowl
5:30 pm - ESPN

Good old App State - owners of still dearly held giant-slayer memories.



AutoNation Cure Bowl
UCF Knights (6 - 6) vs Arkansas State Red Wolves (7 - 5)
Orlando, FL / Camping World Stadium
5:30 pm - CBSSN



R & L Carriers New Orleans Bowl
Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns (6 - 6) vs Southern Miss Golden Eagles (6 - 6)
New Orleans, LA / Mercedes Benz Superdome
9:00 pm - ESPN
