OK, time for the last of them…
1/1, Outback: Tennessee vs. Penn State(+4)
I like the BigTen here, just because, as you said, I’m not very bright.
1/1, Cotton: Auburn vs. Nebraska(+1.5)
Yeah, small edge to Auburn was what I was thinking. Nebraska has some fire but I really think Auburn is better, so I’ll go with them.
1/1, Gator: West Virginia vs. Georgia Tech(+10.5)
Wow, I expect Tech to get spanked but I didn’t think the line would be quite that big. Still, though, Tech really sucks, so I’ll give the big points.
1/1, Capitol One: Arkansas vs. Wisconsin(+2.5)
Hmm, I was hoping for a big spread, because I think the Badgers actually have a shot in this one, but maybe not a great shot. I was hoping to get like five. Oh, well, I’ll take the Badgers anyway.
1/1, Rose: USC vs. Michigan(-1)
One lousy point? We’re only favored by one lousy point? Look, USC lost to Oregon State and UCLA, and we’ve seen how sucky those teams are in their bowl games. GO BLUE.
1/1, Fiesta: Boise State vs. Oklahoma(-7)
Seven? That’s all? Sooners.
1/2, Orange: Louisville vs. Wake Forest(+10.5)
Awww, come on, I know the ACC sucks and all and I certainly expect Louisville to roll, but ten and a half? OK, OK, I’ll quite whining and suck it up, go Cardinals and all that.
1/3, Sugar: Notre Dame vs. LSU(-10)
See, now that’s the right number. Actually, I fully expect LSU to win by 20, since the only two even half-decent teams ND played this year (Michigan and USC) both beat them by at least that.
1/6, International: Western Michigan vs. Cincinnati(-7.5)
I know nothing about either team, but I feel the need to pick an underdog. Go, uhhh, Broncos!
1/7, GMAC: Ohio vs. Southern Miss(-6)
Southern Miss in a rout.
1/8, insert-sponsor-here manufactured BCS “title” game: Ohio State vs. Florida(+8)
OK, here, I’ll come out and say it: Michigan is the real #2 team in the country. I know, I know, they had their shot and all that, so I’m not that peeved about it, but Florida’s horrible offense might not get across midfield against the Buckeyes. OSU all the way, as painful as it is for me to type that.
