Food Network Programming Interest Level: Good Eats

Nine times out of ten I'll watch about five minutes of Good Eats before deciding it's something I really have no interest in (seriously, do I seem like the kind of guy that's into making my own jams and preserves? Don't answer that.), and that's how I feel about all of these. Boston College is the only decently exciting team playing tonight, so I'll pay attention to the Champs Sports Bowl until it gives me reason not to, and the others? Well, it's date night, so I'll watch them if I can, but I won't really care if I don't.

Who does Todd think will win?
Boston College vs Michigan State: BC overachieved early in the season, but they are still a legit ten win team and they should handle Sparty pretty easily (full disclosure, the game is already on and MSU is up 7-0, so, oopsie).

TCU vs Houston: Both teams had disappointing seasons, so this one is kind of hard to call. I'll go with TCU since Briles isn't on the sidelines for this one.

Oregon State vs Maryland: The Terps upset both Rutgers and Boston College to get to 6-6, and were pretty close in several other games, while the Beavers had a pretty good season with wins over Cal and Oregon (though both had backups QBs under center) to finish thrid in the Pac-10. I'll go with the Beavers here, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Maryland come out a little more fired up to pull the upset.

Who does Todd hope will win?
Todd could really care less about any single one of these teams.
