Bowl Season Pick Em - Part 1

New, 5 comments

We take a look at the odds for the first set of Bowl Games, and invite our readers to pick games with us

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

It's hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner, as the weather for the most part in Texas hasn't really felt like the holiday season, and it's even harder to believe the bowl games are starting up. First, we're going to look at the first 12 games, the ones that will be played before Christmas. Also, the website that was used for the Pick Em during the season has a Bowl pick em contest as well. We are opening up the contest for all our readers, however there will be no prize, other than sweet bragging rights. The contest is picking games against the spread, and using confidence points, and you can join here (the password is Raiders).
