Military Bowl: Pittsburgh vs. Navy
Quick Lane Bowl: Central Michigan vs. Minnesota
Armed Forces Bowl: Cal vs. Air Force
Russell Athletic Bowl: North Carolina vs. Baylor
Arizona Bowl: Nevada vs. Colorado State
Texas Bowl: LSU vs. Texas Tech
Birmingham Bowl: Auburn vs. Memphis
Belk Bowl: NC State vs. Mississippi State
Music City Bowl: Texas A&M vs. Louisville
Holiday Bowl: USC vs. Wisconsin

Here are my picks.
Pittsburgh vs. Navy (I have to go with the Midshipmen in this one. Pittsburgh has been good this year, and while Navy did beat Army by 4 points, it's a big, big, rivalry game, and that plays into the factor.)
Central Michigan vs. Minnesota (There are too many bowls.)
Cal vs. Air Force (I have been impressed with Cal this year.)
North Carolina vs. Baylor (Baylor is without 2 or 3 QBs, Shock Linwood, and star WR Corey Coleman for this game. How am i supposed to take a team with that many offensive injuries? And if Baylor loses this, just watch people legitimately use this to criticize the Big 12.)
Nevada vs. Colorado State (Why are two teams from the same conference playing each other in a bowl?)
LSU vs. Texas Tech (Tech's run defense...good god. Fournette will probably break records on Tech.)
Auburn vs. Memphis (Auburn turned out to be a major disappointment this season, didn't they?)
NC State vs. Mississippi State (The Wolfpack are gonna get lit up.)
Texas A&M vs. Louisville (Petrino didn't start off well this year, but he's in a bowl that i don't think he can win.)
USC vs. Wisconsin (USC has been weird this season. They crushed Utah at home, but lost to Washington and Oregon?)

The next bowl game picks will be released December 28th.

Miami Beach Bowl was a good one. Now, if only the camera angles didn't suck...

Camellia Bowl: Ohio vs. Appalachian State. No idea
Cure Bowl: San Jose State vs. Georgia State. And of Georgia State loses, 2 teams playing in the same bowl will both finish with losing records! If that doesn't say "there's too many bowl games" I don't know what does.
New Orleans Bowl: Arkansas State vs. Louisiana Tech. Could be an exciting game.

Akron vs. Utah State. Is Terry Bowden still coaching Akron??
Temple vs. Toledo. Pretty exciting game, too bad I'll be working, so I won't be able to watch much or any of it
Boise State vs. NorthernIllinois. Another great game I won't be able to watch. BTW, why are they putting a game in San Diego at 1:30 local time?? Makes absolutely no sense. Switch this and the Go Daddy Bowl in Birmingham.
Georgia Southern vs.Bowling Green. Don't know much about either team.
Middle Tennessee vs.Western Michigan. Directional Michigan vs. non-directional Tennessee!
San Diego State vs.Cincinnati. I know this game is usually played on Christmas Eve, but why have it in the same time slot as the NFL game?? I'll get the rest of the first selections sometime Thursday or Friday.

Akron has succeeded in getting their first bowl win in school history. Good for them.

Akron football has a good future ahead.

Toledo has beaten Temple 32-17. I expect many people just got their first loss on their pick em'.

That game turned into a runaway, last time I looked Boise State was up 55 to 7. I thought Northern Illinois would give them a good game. I guess not though!

I think Boise often time is under rated. NIU wasnt in the same stratosphere, they could play 10 times and it wouldnt matter.

Bahamas Bowl is a pretty damn good game.

I still remember that failed comeback by Central Michigan last year.
