Choose who you think will win each game and submit. Sign ups will be open until the first game begins (December 20 at 8pm ET) and the winners will be drawn and notified sometime after the last game (January 7).
In case you need a little coaching, Chris's picks are below with a few tips on why he picked his teams. Good luck!


BYU v San Diego State (Poinsettia Bowl)
They are favored and have a strong defense.

Ball State v UCF (Beef OBradys Bowl)
Taking Ball State in this one. They won their last six games and will have a lot of momentum heading into this match-up.

East Carolina v UL Lafayette (New Orleans Bowl)

Boise State v Washington (MAACO Las Vegas Bowl)

Fresno State v SMU (Hawaii Bowl)
SMU lost to Rice this year, but I still think it will be a close game.

Central Michigan v Western KY (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl)
I think they are excited about the future of the program (Bobby Petrino hire), and will want the win more.

Bowling Green v San Jose State (Military Bowl)

Cincinnati v Duke (Belk Bowl)
Have to back Cincinnati here... Duke lost four straight to close the year.

Baylor v UCLA (Holiday Bowl)
Expect a lot of offense for this game.

Ohio v Louisiana-Mon (Independence Bowl)

Rutgers v Virginia Tech (Russell Athletic Bowl)

Minnesota v Texas Tech (Meineke Car Care Bowl)

Air Force v Rice (Armed Forces Bowl)
Air Force all the way here. They have a strong running attack and Rice has been shown to give up a lot of yards.

Syracuse v West Virginia (Pinstripe Bowl)
This is completely a gut pick, but I don't think the Syracuse defense can stand up to the West Virginia offense.

Arizona State v Navy (Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl)

Oregon State v Texas (Alamo Bowl)
Come on now, I'm a Longhorns fan. Never pick against your team.

Michigan State v TCU (Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl)

NC State v Vanderbilt (Music City Bowl)
They have had a great year, and can't wait to see them finish on a win.

Georgia Tech v USC (Sun Bowl)

Iowa State v Tulsa (Liberty Bowl)
They already beat Tulsa once this year.

Clemson v LSU (Chick-fil-A Bowl)

Purdue v Oklahoma State (Heart of Dallas Bowl)
There you go Blake Shelton... That pick was for you.

Mississippi State v Northwestern (Gator Bowl)

Georgia v Nebraska (Capital One Bowl)
Nebraska just gave up 70 to Wisconsin. There is no way I can pick against Georgia here.

Michigan v South Carolina (Outback Bowl)

Stanford v Wisconsin (Rose Bowl)
Wisconsin just lost their head coach.

Florida State v Northern Illinois (Orange Bowl)
I expect a blow out here.

Florida v Louisville (Sugar Bowl)

Kansas State v Oregon (Fiesta Bowl)
I'm picking Kansas State here. Collin Klein got virtually no press over the Heisman and Kansas State hasn't been in a BCS bowl in a while. I think that makes them hungry for the win.

Oklahoma v Texas A&M (Cotton Bowl)

Ole Miss v Pittsburgh (BBVA Compass Bowl)

Arkansas State v Kent State ( Bowl)

Alabama v Notre Dame (BCS Title Bowl)
I think a lot of people are greatly underestimating the physicality of this team, and i think they pull off the upset.

Enjoy bowl season everybody, and I hope your teams win big! - Chris
