As we draw closer to season’s end, the New Year’s cornucopia of bowls bring us a day of football that may finally make up for the pedestrian post-season to date.
Here’s what you’re watching
Central time), when you’re watching it, our picks against the spread — and it will all done in just 17 syllables per game:
No. 18 Mississippi State (8-4) -6 vs. Iowa (8-4)
Two great defenses,
But ‘State runs so much better.
The Hawks may not score.
No. 11 LSU (9-3) -7.5 vs. No. 8 UCF (12-0)
Lots of guys missing,
Tigers will get scored on. Still,
That Knights’ D? Toxic.
No. 14 Kentucky (9-3) +6 vs. No. 12 Penn State (9-3)
If one dimension
Were enough, take the Wildcats.
It’s not. Lions roll.
No. 9 Washington (10-3) vs. No. 6 OSU (12-1) -6.5
Such easy money:
Buckeyes steamroll the Huskies
(who lost to Auburn.)
No. 5 UGA (11-2) vs. No. 15 Texas (9-4) +12
When Georgia shows up,
Some nasty Bulldogs expose
A marginal team.
We’ll be be back tomorrow with our (reasonably) regular schedule. We’re pushing a few things back with the upcoming Monday kick, and adding some others. But, for today, that’s less time you have to spend reading and more time spent watching meaningful football. #blessed
Happy 2019, y’all. I have a good feeling about this one.
What bowl game has the most potential to be a blowout?
