I figured I would keep on tracking this for fun! 

OVERALL RECORD FOR THE PAST 3 SEASONS:

22-10-2 in 2009-2010 Bowl Season...67%

21-14-1 in 2010-2011 Bowl Season...58%

19-15-1 in 2011-2012 Bowl Season...54%

*Not bad for a silly method. It picks more winners than the so called experts. I will use Covers final lines to track this.

Arizona -8.5 is the 1st game.

I remember this system a couple of years ago,   Good Luck!

Can you know in advance the t shirt color? or you have to wait untill game time?

Usually if you do some hunting in a search engine, the bowl game's website that they are in will say.
Sometimes the teams homepage will tell you.
Sometimes the teams fans will tell you in a forum.
ESPN will show the teams warming up before the game starts etc.

You just have to do some searching. Sometimes it is easy, but in some cases it takes some digging.

Because of my crazy work hours, I will not be able to post them all the time before the game starts. If someone wants to post ahead of time, feel free to do so!

Tulsa and Iowa State BOTH wore their home uniforms:

LSU wears white at home so does that mean their white in the Chick Fil A bowl was home or away?

gridironguy,

The way that this is tracked is to take the team that is wearing the dark uniforms...

If both teams are wearing the dark jersey's, then you take the team that is listed as the home team. That is decided in advance and an easy way for us to track it, is that the home team is listed on the bowl's home page or an easier way, is to check the box score....the designated home team will be listed 2nd/bottom.
