Dec. 23rd Poinsettia Bowl TCU vs. Boise St.

This game along with the Oklahoma St/Oregon bowl game are the two most intriguing matchups before New Year's Day. TCU hurt me when they gave up that late TD to Utah, but I really like this team. There offense is better than people think although their kicker killed them when they should have won the Mountain West conference. Boise St. had a great year and Peterson is one heck of a coach and you know he'll have a couple of tricks up his sleeve for this game. This will be one great football game and I have a FIVE STAR PLAY that will be going in this one so check back on the 23rd!

Dec. 24th Hawaii Bowl Notre Dame vs. Hawaii

What a disaster the Notre Dame team was over the last 5 weeks of the season. This team should have finished at 8-4, but brutal losses to Pitt and Syacuse and and embarrassment in LA gave them a 6-6 mark. Hawaii is always tough away from them mainland so the Irish will have their hands full. If Claussen can stay away from mistakes Notre Dame should win, but I don't think he can so I will lean with Hawaii here as Alexander has been making plays down the stretch and they really should have beaten Cincy in their final game. Notre Dame hasn't even played competitive with a team lof Cincinnati's caliber so home field and a fired up team should give the Rainbow Warriors a 31-24 win!

Dec. 26th Motor City Bowl Florida Atlantic vs. Cent. Michigan

Thank god this game is on Friday Night because it means there is no reason to stay home and watch it. Neither one of these teams has much of a defense. FAU was a bit of a disappoinment this year, but they still were able to get to a bowl. That may give them a psychological edge because they should be more jacked up for this game. C. Michigan had a chance against Ball St. and came up just short of possibly getting to the WAC Championship game. Even though you won't catch me watching this game I do have a FIVE STAR PLAY on it so be ready!
