Colin selected a few of the top bowl games this year that are interesting and people will actually watch. He picked the winners of these games along with two of his colleagues, Clay Travis and Joel Klatt.
Clemson vs Oklahoma
Klatt: Oklahoma wins with its defense
Cowherd: Sooners win, they are 5-0 against ranked teams this year
Travis: Also thinks Sooners win
Alabama vs Michigan St.
Travis: Alabama destroys the Spantans this game, will not be close
Cowherd: Bama in a close game. Mich st. relies on the run, and Bama has great rush defense. Bama by 4
Klatt: Bama wins in a tight game.
Ohio St vs Notre Dame
Klatt: Ohio St will win, they could still be the best team in the country “when they want to be”
Cowherd: Ohio St by two touchdowns, 9-2 career in bowl games for Urban Meyers
Travis: Ohio St wins by double digits
Stanford vs Iowa
Cowherd: Iowa will take this game more seriously than Stanford. The nerds are 3-5 in their last 8 bowl games. This is the Super Bowl for Iowa, and not for Stanford. Iowa wins in an upset low scoring game.
Klatt: Also like the underdog Iowa. Iowa’s safeties are extremely active, and has a solid QB
Travis: Stanford in a blowout win, one of his favorite bets in the entire bowl season.
Michigan vs Florida
Cowherd: Loves Michigan here, one of Colin’s 2 locks this bowl season. Michigan wins in a blowout. Florida won’t score this game.
Klatt: SEC East was one of the most overrated divisions in the country, Florida just happened to win the division, but they are very weak. Michigan win in a blowout.
Travis: Also loves Michigan, and is taking the under this game as well.
Wisconsin vs USC
Cowherd: USC doesn’t care about this game, Badgers win in an upset
Klatt: USC wins this game, Cody Kessler wants to go out on a high note, will come out firing.
Travis: USC win impressively
Oregon vs TCU
Cowherd: Taking the Ducks here. Once Adams got healthy, Ducks started to turn around their season. Last 6 games they averaged 45 points.
Klatt: One of the best games this bowl season, very close game but going with TCU. Gary Patterson is a great coach when he has time to scheme for the game.
Travis: Will be one of the best games of the bowl season. Ducks are a totally different team when Adams is healthy, Ducks win
Lock of the Bowl Season
Cowherd: Washington destroys Southern Miss, Chris Peterson with a month to prepare, along with a great defense.
Klatt: Upset and a lock, Texas Tech over LSU. Probably a high scoring affair, but LSU loses.
Travis: Texas Tech vs LSU under is the lock. No game LSU played this season has come close to 73.5 points. The under will cover easily, and LSU will also cover the spread.
