Have to agree nos...Oregon won't look so good vs. bigger athletes from Auburn, and just doesn't have the  to stay with the SEC.  I am not an SEC cheerleader, but 3 seems short here.  I will grab it before it hits 5!

AL - thanks man same to you, GL

mugg - finish strong my friend, always good to hear your P10 and other takes, BOL

dtown, johnny, riza - looks like it's 3 flat most places now, guess is it might continue to edge up if anything, GL fellas

Auburn 52 Oregon 31....although defensive rush (and pass) statistics are similar Tigers played against stronger rushing teams overall (7 opponents over 150 ypg) and have the better front 7, Tenn and ASU had some running success early before key mistakes and playing catch up (and OSU bowl), Oregon played one (current) top 25 team Stanford (500+ offense)...enough rambling on...war eagle

always interesting bowl season in addition to normal handicapping angles, is trying to get read on which teams looking forward to games and which might be disappointed, good articles already out on some teams trying to digest and factor in

GL Nos... the over is at 74.5 right I believe... with a 35 day lay off.... I m going to think hard about this total.. But traditionally I hate playing a high total with a lengthy lay off.  BOL Buddy

boom - agree buddy, since I'm already on Auburn and hoping for a couple defensive stops we'll probably stay away from that total, BOL boom

Good Luck!

I haven't looked them over much yet, but I will be Auburn for max units.  Definitely leaning Georgia.

I'm going to try and force myself to wait to place anything.  Bad grades, violation of team rules, arrests, etc.

GL this bowl season Nos

I really think LSU may end up as my Bowl game of the year

I had it at LSU by 10 with my numbers. Also loving Ok St under a TD. Arizona is deflated after losing like that to rival and a rough second half of season.

had some computer problems at just the wrong time when the numbers are out, back to checking out a couple more

ksu - probably not a bad idea to wait, taking a chance with early numbers vs possible injuries,etc, sometimes able to get out or offset other times not, recall a couple yrs ago FSU vs UK moved from 3 to 9.5 on suspensions and can get stuck with it, BOL buddy on a profitable bowl season

gcn - yeah that's some concern, coming off loss and Pelini should be enough hopefully, other factor obviously whether Martinez now has enough time to get 100%, matchup factors overrode those concerns for now at least, might reduce though depending on how it plays out

fsu - agreed pretty strong on both, looks like LSU already moving to 1.5, BOL bro

wahoo - appreciate it coming from a vet like yourself, been chipping away after the slow start and hanging in there, glad to hear we're already on a couple of the same, BOL with the bowls and happy holidays buddy

gene - war eagle buddy, BOL

SNF, allicat - same here

helm - lean Terps to outscore them by couple TDs, trying to make sure MD will be ready since some rumblings about not being happy with bowl selection and not getting travel

Georgia 31 UCF 13....UCF averaging 14 ppg against BCS last 3 yrs, pretty good defense won't fully contain Bulldogs, could be combination of last couple bowls vs Rutgers and Miss St, UGA VIII rolls in this one

Okla St 41 Arizona 24.....Wildcats defense although pretty good capable of giving up points to better offenses around 35ppg vs ranked over 3 yrs, playing in Texas should favor OSU crowd, Gundy and team seems motivated to set OSU most wins in a season

LSU 30 Tex A&M 20...A&M offense mostly contained against better defenses this year (Ark, Tex, Mizzou, etc) and LSU is there and more, if avoiding ridiculous Jefferson, Lee errors, Tigers pretty solid in bowls recently and will look to rebound losing last year

Boston Coll 30 Nevada 27....BC run defense a good matchup against Nevada, held Ga Tech to 235 in 08, Wolfpack record against BCS still needs to improve even after Cal win, grass should slow Nevada some and bad weather would be plus

Nebraska 38 Washington 17...although matchups are good for the Huskers, might reduce depending on read from Neb outlook and health of Martinez and Paul, plus UW very inconsistent...at times pretty good against USC and Ore St and dominated by other decent teams
