Fort Worth Bowl: Air Force 28, Cal 24.
Air Force has the incentive and the crowd on its side. The Bears end a disappointing season with a disappointing loss.
Sun Bowl: South Florida 31, Oregon 21.
The Bulls have a healthy QB; the Ducks are down to fourth stringers. The only way Oregon keeps this close is if RB Jonathan Stewart runs wild; he'll get his yards, but it won't be enough.
Humanitarian Bowl: Fresno State 24, Georgia Tech 10.
Jon Tenuta is the Yellow Jackets' interim coach. Interim coaches haven't fared well during bowl season. Also, the Bulldogs are the better team.
Music City Bowl: Kentucky 31, Florida State Junior Varsity 17.
The Seminoles are missing nearly three dozen players because of an academic scandal. Even with a full roster, Florida State would have a tough time winning this game.
Insight Bowl: Oklahoma State 42, Indiana 38.
Expect a scoreboard malfunction. Both teams have prolific attacks but the Cowboys have a better running game.
Chick-fil-A Bowl: Clemson 24, Auburn 17.
Clemson has more stability and a capable offense. Auburn is using a new spread offense favored by recently hired offensive coordinator Tony Franklin.
Prediction record so far: 6-9.
