We Pick As Follows
It s hard to tell who will win and why, but anyway
we select the following to come through with victories;
Kose Bowl California vs Tennessee. It looks like Cali
fornia is a little too strong and they are playing at home.
Sugar Bowl Texas A. and M. - Tulane- Texas has been
rated as one of. the strongest, if not the strongest, in the
nation. Our vote goes to Texas.
Orange Bowl Georgia Tech ve Missouri: Our head is
noading toward Georgia Tech-
Cotton Bowl Boston vs Clemson: It looks like we are
selecting Clemson solely on account of McFadden.
