College Football Bowl Season is Set to Begin! [Updated 1/7]

The 2009- 2010 College Bowl Season is set to begin on December 19th with the New Mexico BoBCS Logowl (Fresno St. vs. Wyoming) and the St. Petersburg Bowl (UCF vs. Rutgers).

There are several games that should be incredible to watch, most notably Oregon vs. Ohio St. in the Rose Bowl, Florida vs. Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl, TCU vs. Boise St. in the Fiesta Bowl, Stanford vs. Oklahoma in the Sun Bowl and of-course the BCS Championship. This year, the BCS championship will feature Heisman Trophy winner, Mark Ingram, and the Alabama Crimson Tide vs. the Texas Longhorns.

The BCS might not be the most popular system (who wouldn’t love to see Florida have a chance at revenge against Alabama or to see the explosive Oregon Ducks have a shot at the title), but that is an entirely new blog post.

This year will be the first year that MikesPickz will officially predict every game of the Bowl Season, without further ado, here are this year’s picks:
