NCAA Football: Bowl Preview and Picks for December 29th

After going 0-3 yesterday with my picks, I need to bounce back today in a big way. Here’s hoping for the sweep.  South Florida -10 v. South Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl: I’m taking the Bulls in this one.

Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars have their sites on a Holiday Bowl trophy.  Army at North Texas +10.5, in the Heart of Dallas Bowl: I like North Texas in this game as a heavy underdog.
