Outback Bowl Pick: Michigan vs. South Carolina

The Michigan Wolverines didn’t quite have the same success that they had in Brady Hoke’s first season as head coach at Michigan. The Wolverines started the season with a big loss to Alabama and ended the regular season with a loss to rival Ohio State. Still, the Wolverines are in a New Year’s Day bowl. South Carolina lost to LSU and Florida and swept the rest of their slate. The Gamecocks aren’t quite the same without Marcus Lattimore, but this team is still very talented. Let’s take a look at this year’s Outback Bowl.

Capital One Bowl Pick: Georgia vs Nebraska

Nebraska comes into this game with a 10-3 record, but they can’t have much confidence after being thrashed by the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten title game. The Georgia Bulldogs were one play away from being in the BCS Championship Game. Instead, they missed out on the BCS bowls altogether. This game has a lot of interesting little sub plots. Which team will come prepared?

Chick-fil-A Bowl Pick: LSU vs Clemson

The Chick-fil-A Bowl has developed a reputation over the last few years of being one of the best bowl games before New Year’s Day. That continues this year with a matchup between the LSU Tigers and the Clemson Tigers. LSU was here four years ago, and they laid a 38-3 beat down on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets from the ACC. Can LSU beat up on another ACC opponent in this year’s Chick-fil-A Bowl?
