Quick Picks - Saturday Bowls

South Florida -3.5 over East Carolina

I love what Skip Holtz (Lou's son) has done for the Pirates of East Carolina, but South Florida has been one of the more underrated teams all season. Matt Grothe, a true Freshman, is a tough and exciting player, and the defense is led by one of the best linebacking tandems in the nation (Stephen Nicholas and Ben Moffit). South Florida is the better team and they take it 24-16.

San Jose State +6.5 over New Mexico

Dick Tomey has worked nothing short of a miracle turning around a San Jose St. program that was one of the worst in college football history. New Mexico loves to throw the ball, and the strength of the Spartan defense is their secondary. Look for San Jose St. to win outright. Let's call it 24-23.

Utah -3.5 over Tulsa

I love Steve Kragthorpe (everyone should know this by now), but I don't love the way Tulsa ended their season. Utah got off to a very poor start but they really picked it up in the second half of the season. They may not be the better team or have the better coach, but they are playing better right now. Call it Utah 27-20.

Overall Bowl Record: 2-1


South Florida -3.5 over East Carolina

Fucking Blogger messed up my original analysis, so it's the thumbnail versions. South Florida beat West Virginia, East Carolina kept it close. East Carolina is having a nice year, South Florida is actually good. South Florida win 24-17.

New Mexico -6.5 over San Jose St.

I am going to take the team with the big fireworks. I just have a feeling that they get clicking, and the Spartans fall behind and can't recover. Let's call it Lobos, 34-20.

Utah -3.5 over Tulsa

I think the Kragthorpe rumors have been a distraction, and Tulsa has not been playing its' best ball recently. I like what the Utes bring to the table in this one. I feel like they feel a little disrespected since no one talks about them anymore. They are out to prove Meyer isn't the only notable thing about this program. They get it going, 28-21.

Overall Bowl Record: 2-1
