Happy 2014! So far the SEC is 3-0.

Ole Miss meh'd their way past Georgia Tech 25-17. DREAM TEAM!

Mississippi State beat the pudding out of Rice 44-7. (How did the Owls win 10 games? Oh, right. By having the lamest schedule in the history of the game.)

Johnny You-Know-Who all of a sudden became a team player and rallied Texas A&M to a 52-48 win over upstart Duke.


GATOR BOWL Nebraska vs. Georgia (-9½) 11:00 AM / 12:00 PM ESPN2- After 7 season in Lincoln, Taylor Martinez will not play. Aaron Murray is also out. If Todd Gurley is healthy, he should have a big game.

HEART OF DALLAS BOWL UNLV vs. North Texas (-6) 11:00 AM / 12:00 PM ESPNU- how did this dud slip in here?

CAPITAL ONE BOWL Wisconsin (-2) vs. South Carolina 12:00 PM / 1:00 PM ABC- This is must watch TV. The Badgers have a solid team. Look for SC's Connor Shaw and Jadeveon Clowney to have a big game.

OUTBACK BOWL Iowa vs. LSU (-8) 12:00 PM / 1:00 PM ESPN- The Tigers should win easily.

ROSE BOWL Stanford (-7) vs. Michigan State 4:00 PM / 5:00 PM ESPN- I might actually watch this game for once. Both these teams have a style close to The Process®.

FIESTA BOWL UCF vs. Baylor (-17) 7:30 PM / 8:30 PM ESPN- Many are touting UCF QB Blake Bortles as a top 10 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft but the Kinghts (11-1) have been winning with defense which has given up 19.6 points per game, good for 12th in the nation.
