Texas Bowl: Houston 34, TCU 24.
Sorry Frogs. Most of the bowl games have been high scoring and I don't think TCU will be able to keep up with or stop the Cougars' high-octane offense. (However, based on my awful track record thus far, this prediction almost guarantees a Frogs victory.)
Champs Sports Bowl: Boston College 35, Michigan State 31.
The Eagles and QB Matt Ryan should be able to overcome a Spartans team that is capable of scoring a lot of points.
Emerald Bowl: Oregon State 28, Maryland 13.
The Beavers finished the season on a roll and their defense should be able to shut down a Terps offense that has struggled at times.
Prediction record so far: 2-6.
