New Orleans Bowl Picks

Rice -7.5 over Troy

This is tough game to pick since both teams are 7-5, and the number is half a point over a touchdown. That said, I feel much more comfortable laying the points and taking the team with the better talent (both football and coaching). Plus, it doesn't hurt that Rice is on a huge roll winning six straight games. Rice has the better head coach (Todd Graham), the better coordinator (Major Applewhite), the better quarterback (Chase Clement) and the best player in the game (Jarrett Dillard). With all that going against Troy, I can't say that I know enough about the teams to go against them. Call it Rice 31-Troy 17.

Overall Bowl Record: 2-0


Rice -7.5 over Troy

Like I'm not going to pick the Major and his troops! It's really that simple. Dillard blows up. It's a huge day for Rice (woah!). The Owls take it, 35-21.
