Bowl preview, part 12

Dear God, I sucked yesterday. And I leave for Vegas in 36 hours....pray that I have better luck today or I may come home shirtless next week!

These are going to be short because I have to leave in about 30 minutes.

Missouri vs. Arkansas
Cotton Bowl
Tuesday, January 1st - 1130am

Missouri has a lot of talent and something to prove. Arkansas has one very talented man who has been ravaged and vindicated and ravaged again in the press. It'll be a very good game, but I think the talent of Chase Daniel will overcome the talent of Darren McFadden.

Missouri also needs to show the BCS committee why the "onlt two teams per conference rule" needs to be eliminated. They got screwed, and they'll prove it.

Missouri 34
Arkansas 28
Florida vs. Michigan
Capital One Bowl
Tuesday, January 1st - 1pm

Florida is the defending National Champions. They have the Heisman Trophy winner in Tim Tebow. Michigan lost four games this year, three in the Big House, one to a Division 1-AA school.

You know what? Screw all that noise. Florida's been told for 6 weeks that they are a lock, and Michigan is pissed. Plus, when you have a fully healthy Chad Henne, a fully healthy Mike Hart, and a MESS of players looking to win one final game for Lloyd Carr, you've got motivation.

Michigan 28
Florida 27

And if it doesn't happen, we get to laugh at Mike Hart for going 0-8 in bowl games and against Ohio State.
Virginia vs. Texas Tech
Gator Bowl
Tuesday, January 1st - 1pm

Virginia's had it's share of big wins this year, and I like them a lot. But I am concerned about their ability to stop a high-powered Texas Tech offense. There will be a LOT of passes thrown in this game, and I think TT will win out. Nuff said.

Texas Tech 45
Virginia 35
USC vs. Illinois
Rose Bowl
Tuesday, January 1st - 430pm

Our first BCS game!

Juice Williams, Rashard Mendenhall and Stepan Pamon just killed us when we played in Columbus. That won't happen here. USC is a beast in bowl games, and Pete Carroll doesn't let players overlook opponents in bowl games. Except Oklahoma.

USC 45
Illinois 21
Hawaii vs. Georgia
Sugar Bowl
Tuesday, January 1st - 8pm

Remember the Fiesta Bowl? Boise State vs. Oklahoma?

Also remember that this is the year of upsets. I'm going to risk my luck on this one and hope that I end this day better than yesterday.

Hawaii 28
Georgia 27
