bowl picks: day uno

i'll be doing all my bowl picks the day before so as to give you time to call your bookie since you're going to take my picks as the word of god. actually its b/c some of these games kick off ridiculously early and i don't feel like having to deal with that. enjoy...and bring on the ball busting.

(all times central)

eaglebank bowl
wake forest vs. navy @ washington dc
rfk stadium 10am espn
the pick: navy +3
por que?: this game is actually a rematch from earlier this year, with navy winning the first meeting...i think they complete the sweep.

new mexico bowl
colorado state vs. fresno state @ albuquerque
university stadium 1:30pm espn
the pick: fresno -3
por que?: both of these teams suck and lost to pretty much any decent team they've played. give me pat hill's mustache...anybody, anytime, anywhere.

magicjack st. petersburg bowl
memphis vs. south florida @ st. petersburg, fl (what a coincidence)
tropicana field 3:30pm espn2
the pick: memphis +13
por que?: despite it basically being a home game for the bulls, these two teams are going in different directions. memphis got better as the season went on, and the bulls got worse. the bulls win, but don't cover.

pioneer las vegas bowl
byu vs. arizona @ las vegas (what do ya know??)
sam boyd stadium 7pm espn
the pick: byu +3
por que?: because the mountain west owns the pac 10.
