Time to start picking the bowls (and we will be picking all 35). Here's this week's slate of bowl games to pick (POINT SPREADS MATTER):

  • New Mexico Bowl - Temple v. Wyoming (+7)
  • Famous Idaho Potato Bowl - Ohio v. Utah State (-1.5)
  • R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl - San Diego State v. Louisiana Lafayette (+5)
  • Beef ‘O’ Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl - Florida International v. Marshall (+4)

  • MAACO Las Vegas Bowl - Arizona St v. Boise State (-14)

Picks are due by 2pm EST, Saturday.

macker605 had a strong week to re-tie dawg'eer8488 once again amongst the commenters, but Caleb's 5 jumps him to the overall lead (he's not eligible for the prize, just bragging rights). We did have 2 perfect slates last go around, t3 and kml2157. With all 35 of the bowls up for grabs, there's still plenty of moves to make, so get back in if you haven't been picking for a while. Staff picks and the leaderboard are after the jump...
