New Year’s Eve Bowls and Our Results

Well, some things have changed after yesterday. First, who saw Washington coming? None of us. Kansas State was robbed by the misapplication of the excessive celebration rule. Army got their first bowl win since the mid-80’s, and I’m pissed that I gave up on the Music City Bowl with about a minute and a half…

Today’s Bowls By The Numbers

I’d like to have even more than I presently do. However, the NCAA has relaunched their site and are going through upgrades that have made their vast library of stats unavailable at the moment.

Finally, WEC 53 Pick Results
