I dunno. I'd say that the SEC will win 1 or 2 of those (LSU?, Mizzoui? and/or So. Car.?) and then a sweep the Bama, Georgia, Miss. St., and Texas A&M games. Plus, there's Vandy with a decent chance of knocking off Baylor. Unfortunately, I do see the meatchickens throttling the Gators though. As always, michigan SUX!!!

I think Purdue comes out hyped up against Auburn.

But, won't matter. Media will say that Auburn was just going through the motions and using the practices for next year's "real bowl".

Bowl Season starts today. Possibly some intriguing matchups: N Texas vs Utah St, Middle Tenn vs App State and the first Group of 5 vs P5 matchup in Fresno St vs ASU.

Hard to predict much with Auburn right now. They're consistently inconsistent and there are a lot of problems with the team and the coaching staff. This game could be a blowout either way and it wouldn't surprise me.

Some nice early games. I'm looking forward to the NM Bowl - Utah State (3rd) and N.Texas (21st) have some high-powered scoring offenses that rely on their passing game and in top 20 in 20+ and 30+ Both QBs rank in the top 20 in Yards per game.

Fresno State and Appy State also should put some points on the board. Fresno State may roll, especially with Harry with ASU skipping the bowl. Appy has a top ten scoring defense. In the Camelia Bowl Georgia Southern and Eastern Michigan should be the opposite from the NM Bowl - a defensive struggle.
