Predicting Every Single Single 2014-’15 College Football Bowl Game

Record in Week 15 & 16: 9-7

Overall Record for the Season: 597-249 (I picked 70.56% of games correctly over the course of the 2014 college football season)

Bowl season has arrived! It’s the most wonderful time of the year for college football fans. Not only that, but this year’s slate of New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day games are absolutely fantastic. And on top of that is the first ever college football playoffs. There is certainly plenty to look forward to this bowl season. I’m going to forewarn you on my bowl picks track record: I’m not usually that great with my bowl picks every year. I’m pretty hit and miss most of the time. If I’m able to pick above .500 correctly, then I’m pretty happy. These are almost as tough to pick as the NCAA Basketball Tournament because you have no idea if a team is going to show up or not. I guarantee there will be some surprising blowouts because some teams just do not give a crap about playing a game somewhere in Alabama. Other teams are absolutely thrilled to play that game in Alabama. So without further ado here are my bowl picks!

That’s all of my bowl picks! This is the last picks post of the year, so obviously I won’t have an article showing how I did with my bowl picks. If you’re interested in how I’m doing on my bowl picks though, be sure to follow me on Twitter: @SchottJosh. I’ll have updates on how I’m doing throughout the bowl season, although if I’m doing terrible you might have to talk it out of me. Thanks for reading these posts all season and Merry Christmas to you and your families!
