Yesterday was a solid 3-2 day with a healthy serving of Bulldogs and another Big Ten whipping. Today we get three more games …
Cotton Bowl: #25 Mississippi (8-4, 5-3 SEC) vs. #7 Texas Tech (11-1, 7-1 Big 12). Ole Miss is getting 4.5, and this is the game where Texas really goes “WTF happened?” The Red Raiders will leave no doubt that the Oklahoma drubbing was no fluke.
Autozone Liberty Bowl: Kentucky (6-6, 2-6 SEC) vs. East Carolina (9-4, 6-2 C-USA). If I thought the Fighting Chickens were a piss poor representation of the SEC, I am not sure what the kitty cats are doing in this game. They are getting 2.5, and it pains me to pick against them, but the Rum Runners are the pick. Still going to pull for a Kentucky upset.
Allstate Sugar Bowl: #6 Utah (12-0, 8-0 MWC) vs. #4 Alabama (12-1, 8-0 SEC). I think the Tide will win, just not by 9. So in the spirit of picking against the spread, Utah is the pick.
I have a feeling that I may be going 0-3 today, but who cares? The Bulldogs won yesterday, so all is right with the world.
Record to date: 14-10.
