Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl: Houston vs Air Force, Wednesday (Dec 31) 12pm
Evan: If you pick Houston, it means you hate America. Pick: Air Force
Matt: These two have already played once with Air Force winning by 3. Houston has been pretty dynamic offensively this season, but Air Force looks like the better team. Pick: Air Force
Ahad: The school that produced Kevin Kolb gets no love from me. Wouldn’t it just be wrong if one of the Armed Forces doesn’t win the Armed Forces Bowl? Pick: Air Force
Mike: Air Force

Sun Bowl: Oregon State vs Pittsburgh, Wednesday (Dec 31) 2pm
Evan: Neither Oregon State nor Pittsburgh get a lot of sun. Who can handle the heat? Pick: Oregon St
Matt: I am not much of a fan of Pitt, and they compiled their winning record playing in the weak Big East. Oregon State fell just short of the Pac 10 title. I am a fan of OSU and JacQuizz. Pick: Oregon State
Ahad: I find myself picking against teams I dislike rather than going with teams I like. I guess that means I have more hate than love. Pitt falls into the hate category. Pick: Oregon State
Mike: Pittsburgh finished the season strong and I was leaning toward them after being disappointed with Oregon State’s loss to Oregon with the Rose Bowl on the line. Turns out Oregon is better than I thought. Pick: Oregon State

Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl: Boston College vs Vanderbilt, Wednesday (Dec 31) 3:30pm
Evan: Vandy sneaked into this bowl game with a terrible offense. Pick: BC
Matt: Vanderbilt has only won one game since their 5-0 start. Boston College should win their 9th bowl game in a row. Pick: Boston College
Ahad: BC
Mike: Where’d that super Vandy team go? Pick: Boston College

Insight Bowl: Kansas vs Minnesota, Wednesday (Dec 31) 5:30pm
Evan: Kansas
Matt: Minnesota comes in on a 4 game losing streak and looking pretty bad in losses to Michigan and Iowa. Kansas is coming off an unexpected triumph over Missouri in their regular season finale. Pick: Kansas
Ahad: As much as I would like the see the Big 10 rack up a victory, it’s not going to happen in this game. Pick: Kansas
Mike: Minnesota last game was a 44-0 loss to Iowa. I have little faith in them. Pick: Kansas

Chick-fil-a Bowl: LSU vs Georgia Tech, Wednesday (Dec 31) 7:30pm
Evan: Everyone loves Georgia Tech. I think Les Miles has been using this time to show his team how bad everyone thinks they are. Pick: LSU
Matt: I don’t think LSU is THAT bad. I just don’t think they are as good as Georgia Tech. Pick: Georgia Tech
Ahad: Georgia Tech’s running game will cause a lot of problems for LSU. How good is that LSU defense going to be with a lame duck coordinator? Pick: G-Tech
Mike: A lot of teams I don’t trust today. Two of them in this game. There is talent on this LSU team somewhere, right? Did you know LSU won the BCS National Championship last year. Yea, it was only a year ago. Pick: LSU
