New Year’s Six Prognostication: Week 8
Alright, so last weekend was wild. I need at least one more week where things settle down so I can be more confident in my picks. This is the best I can make sense of everything so far.
Cotton Bowl: 11-2 Washington vs 11-2 Wisconsin
It’s not the sexy matchup, but it’ll be fun to see these fully fleshed out and supremely confident teams go at each other.
Fiesta Bowl: 10-2 Virginia Tech vs 10-3 TCU
I’m not confident at either of these teams right now in this matchup, but I think that it could definitely happen.
Orange Bowl: 12-1 Miami FL vs 11-2 Georgia
NOW WOULDN’T THIS BE FUN??? Mark Richt vs Georgia. I’m salivating. I hope it happens.
Peach Bowl: 10-2 Penn State vs 12-0 UCF
Penn State gets the G5 representative, who I still think will be UCF.
Rose Bowl (semifinal): 12-1 Clemson vs 11-2 Ohio State
A high quality rematch that will probably lead to another rematch.
Sugar Bowl (semifinal): 13-0 Alabama vs 11-2 Oklahoma State
I can’t make heads or tails of the Big 12 or PAC-12, so Oklahoma State is more or less here as a placeholder. I mean, why not?
