Bowl Game Pick 'Em: The Writers Pick the Games

Bowl Game Pick 'Em: The Writers Pick the Games

This article is part of our Bowl Game Pick 'Em series.

Bowl season is upon us, so we polled our college football writers for their picks. Of the 35 bowls, none provided consensus.

Dustin Choy, Edward Kensik, Greg Vara and Jason Thornbury proved the contrarians in the group, preventing consensus in four bowls. Choy is the only writer picking Lousiana-Lafayette over San Diego State in the New Orleans Bowl, while Kensik is the lone backer of Arizona State over Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl. Vara is the lone holdout for Marshall over Florida International in the St. Petersburg Bowl, and Thornbury is the only handicapper who thinks Washington can stay within nine points of Baylor in the Alamo Bowl.

Not only did Chris Morgan disagree with that Alamo Bowl upset, he tabbed Baylor as his best bet. Jesse Siegel took an underdog as his best bet with Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl.

And finally, Andrew Martinez and Vince Russo sided with the majority in the BCS Championship, picking LSU to down Alabama.

(UPDATE: Mario Puig was a late entry but submitted picks before kickoff of the first game.)

Picks are against the spread. Best bets are CAPITALIZED/UNDERLINED. Winners are noted in blue, losers in red, pushes in black.

Happy Bowling.

POST-BOWL UPDATE: Congratulations to Jason Thornbury for winning the Bowl Pick 'Em title with the best record.
