Figured we should have one of these as the bowl season starts to pick up. Feel free to discuss how you're doing in your respective Bowl Pick 'em contests as well (I love the confidence point pick 'em format, my extended family on my mom's side does it each year).

Found out my friend got free tickets to the Quick Lane Bowl (Duke/Northern Illinois) at Ford Field on Tuesday, so looking forward to that.

Maybe we'll get some close, suspenseful ones today. The late comeback attempt by the Rams is about the closest thing to suspense we've had so far.

(edit) so that would be a no on that...

The news that Delaware State should not have counted as a bowl-eligibility win toward Florida State is amusing though. I feel like it's not too late to toss them out and put Buffalo or Western Michigan in.

I did hear though, that Western Michigan and Buffalo's FCS opponents similarly did not meet the scholarship requirements to be counted as a win toward bowl eligibility by the NCAA. There might even be other teams playing in this year's bowl season with the same issue. Seems like they should maybe scrap that rule?

Agree on rule change. None of them should count.

Ha I was thinking the other way around but yeah, you should be able to get 6+ wins vs the FBS in honesty.

View from the Quick Lane Bowl. Northern Illinois had one of the worst play calls ever, faking a punt on 4th and 20 from their own 10 in the 1st quarter. Kept it close till the end of the 1st half, then Duke just cruised. It was more of the Duke team that smashed Northwestern back in September.

Hope so!! That would be insane. I wonder what the record is for most wins in an undefeated bowl season. The Big Ten went 5-0 back in the late 90's but someone probably got more wins & went undefeated at some point.
