Chicago-Centric Bowl Season Picks

College Football Bowl Local Edition

Here is a list of upcoming bowl you should care about...or not:

R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl Sat., Dec. 22
UL Lafayette over East Carolina

UL Lafayette is Bears cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman's alma mater.

Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas Bowl Fri., Dec. 28
Texas Tech over Minnesota

The Golden Gophers defensive line coach, Jeff Phelps' dad and my dad were best friends up until death.

Chick-Fil-A Bowl Mon., Dec. 31
LSU over Clemson

Do you think Alderman "Proco" Joe Moreno will tune in to see the Chick-Fil-A Bowl game?? Gator Bowl Tue., Jan. 1
Northwestern over Mississippi State

The Wildcats have to win a bowl game at some point...right?

Outback Bowl Tue., Jan. 1
South Carolina over Michigan

The wheels fell off in up in Ann Arbor this year...jeez.

Rose Bowl Tue., Jan. 1
Stanford over Wisconsin

The Badgers don't have a chance against a rugged team like the Cardinal.

Discover Orange Bowl Tue., Jan. 1
Northern Illinois over Florida State

I want the Huskies to shut Kirk Herbstreit's mouth.

BCS National Championship Mon., Jan. 7
Alabama over Notre Dame

Both teams match up pretty well. I'm taking the Crimson Tide in a close one. Sorry, Notre Dame fans.
