The RotoWire College Cappers picked every bowl game below, adding some "best bets," as well. They'll add picks for the national championship when the participants are decided. Also, check out the comments section for any changes to these picks as each bowl approaches.
Tulane -3.5 vs. UL Lafayette
Chris: Lafayette. I have no real feel here, but Tulane has been wildly inconsistent SU and are only 2-5 ATS in its last seven. ULL can run the ball, defend OK and showed some fight last time out against Appalachian State.
Greg: Tulane. Neither team played well against stiff competition, but Tulane had a decent win against Memphis. Tulane won four of its final five games, including a victory over a decent Navy team to become bowl eligible.
New Mexico Bowl
Utah State -9 vs. North Texas
Chris: Utah State. UNT was my early season darling with a predicted SU win at Arkansas but faded mightily down the stretch, covering just once in the final eight games. I don't love the Aggies, but they're 9-3 ATS and this is the smallest number by which they've been favored.
Greg: Utah State. I don't like the way Utah State finished, with a dud against Colorado State and a loss to Boise State, but there's no doubt the Aggies are the better team. The month off will allow the Aggies to get refocused and take care of business in their bowl game.
Las Vegas Bowl
Fresno State -4 vs. Arizona State
