Just a quick note before getting to the picks. What is the deal with the disturbing trend of college football players being suspended for bowl games. Not one day after hearing that Florida State may have to forfeit thanks to 20+ suspensions, but both Ohio State and Tennessee announced that they are suspending starters for their bowl games thanks to various rule violations. As disturbing and upsetting as this news is to college football fans, the worst may be yet to come........we're only ONE day into bowl season. There is a lot of time left.

Frazier: Florida Atlantic -2.5 over Memphis
When you know nothing about the teams, go with the coaching legend. I'll take FAU, and the fighting Schnellenberger's in this one, 38-34.
Bowl Pickoff Record: 0-1

I admit that I, too, know almost nothing about these teams. However, I do recognize that one team's recruiting base in South Florida, while the other's is somewhere in Tennessee. That's the equivalent of pitting a Las Vegas based team against anyone else in a farting competition. I'll take my chances with the Miami based team. Nuff said. Gimme FAU 27-21.
Bowl Pickoff Record: 1-0
