NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Bowling for dollars-Bowl pick'em 2013-2014
December 10, 2013, 05:24 PM
Sadly, we are talking about internet dollars, but the games will be a blast this year. A lot of fairly even matches. As with the regular season the picks are just for winners and losers, no spreads. The Army vs Navy game will be the tie breaker (and if it looks like a further tiebreaker will be needed the closest to the final score in the BCS title game will take the crown). I added locations for some of the oddball bowls. The games:

1. Army vs Navy this weekend
2. New Mexico Bowl Washington State vs. Colorado State 21 DEC
3. Las Vegas Bowl Fresno State vs. USC Dec. 21
4. Idaho Potato Bowl Buffalo vs. San Diego State Dec. 21

NP, bowls are fun and where conference homers meet reality, so they are fun year to year as conferences do better or worse than they did the year before.
