I'll go Army as well Colt. Army is due for a win in this series (when was their last win, 2000?? Earlier??) and with Navy's blowout loss to Temple in the AAC championship game knocking them out of a New Years 6 bowl, this may be as goof time as ever for Army to grab that win.

Go Army, but it is just a joy watching our esteemed military academies and their passion!

2001, when Navy finished 0-10 for the season.
The previous year Navy beat Army by 2 for their only win of the season.

What a game!

An injury-riddled Navy made it way more interesting than it needed to be. Turnovers kept both teams in it until the very end. It was great to see Army end the 14-year streak. The commemorative WWII unis looked incredibly good. Congrats to West Point!

All right. Here's the first set of bowl game picks.

NC Central vs. Grambling State
UTSA vs. New Mexico
(22) Houston vs. San Diego State
Appalachian State vs. Toledo
Arkansas State vs. UCF
Southern Miss vs. UL Lafayette
Central Michigan vs. Tulsa
Memphis vs. Western Kentucky
BYU vs. Wyoming
Idaho vs. Colorado State
Eastern Michigan vs. Old Dominion
Louisiana Tech vs. (24) Navy
Ohio vs. Troy
Mid Tenn State vs. Hawaii

Pick Overall Record: 183-116
Pick Overall Last Week: 7-5

Here are my picks.
NC Central vs. Grambling State (Grambling by 14.)
UTSA vs. New Mexico (Close one.)
Houston vs. San Diego State (SDSU is gonna whoop some Cougar butt.)
Appalachian State vs. Toledo (I like Appalachian State this year.)
Arkansas State vs. UCF (Here's a tossup.)
Southern Miss vs. UL Lafayette (Southern Miss by 3.)
Central Michigan vs. Tulsa (We all know CMU is only in a bowl because of that OK State game.)
Memphis vs. Western Kentucky (I'll take the Toppers, but i ain't sleeping on Memphis.)
BYU vs. Wyoming (Mormon U by 10.)
Idaho vs. Colorado State (Another tossup.)
Eastern Michigan vs. Old Dominion (Sorry, Eagles. I think ODU wins.)
Louisiana Tech vs. Navy (Navy's without Will Worth.)
Ohio vs. Troy (Troy edges it out by 1.)
Mid Tenn State vs. Hawaii (This game should be fun.)

NC Central vs. Grambling State. How many people come just to see Grambling's marching band??
UTSA vs. New Mexico. New Mexico probably deserves a bowl better than the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, but since it takes place in their own stadium I'm sure they'll take it
(22) Houston vs. San Diego State. Should be a pretty good game.
Appalachian State vs. Toledo. I'll take the Rockets to blast off.
Arkansas State vs. UCF. No idea.
Southern Miss vs. UL Lafayette. Basically a home game for Lafayette in New Orleans, they'll get the win by a TD.
Central Michigan vs. Tulsa. At least there might actually be more than 30,000 at Marlins Park for a game.
Memphis vs. Western Kentucky. Do you really need a bowl game each, much less back-to-back days in Miami & Boca Raton??
BYU vs. Wyoming. 9 bowl games in and this is only the second semi-decent matchup. Get rid of 3/4 of these bowls!!
Idaho vs. Colorado State. Are Idaho & Boise State really a "rivalry??"
Eastern Michigan vs. Old Dominion. This bowl, taking place in the Bahamas, is sponsored by Popeyes, which brings up an interesting question, in that do they even have Popeyes in the Bahamas??
Louisiana Tech vs. (24) Navy. Also known as the "lost in their conference championship game" bowl.
Ohio vs. Troy. Troy's had a very impressive year, and they end it on a high note.
Mid Tenn State vs. Hawaii. Usually I'd be all over this game as it would give me something else to do on Christmas Eve besides talk to the family, but with the NFL also playing the majority of their games on this day, I'm not as excited as I usually am.
