Bubba 'N Earl Bowl Pool Update #7

AUMaverick, Joe, and myself got both games wrong yesterday.

Ann&Bob, BFR, Earl, Jason, SRQDawg15, and Streit got both games right yesterday.

New Jersey Knights vs. Wolfpack

In one heck of a game, Rutgers pulled out a win against NC State. The Wolfpack were plagued by their starting QB being injured and the back ups playing inconsistently (just as they dealt with in the beginning of the season).

The slight majority of 7 took this game.

Kitty Cat Battle - Tigers vs. Wildcats

The most accurate kicker in NCAA history missed a last second, game winning field goal for Mizzou. THIS IS WHY YOU WATCH BOWL GAMES.

I'm sure the commentators for the game jinxed him after constantly discussing how he would never miss a field goal...oops...

Unfortunately for AUMaverick, Joe, Bubba, and myself, Northwestern blew it in OT.

The majority won on this close game game.

Today we have three games:

Terps vs. The Other Wolfpack

Maryland was probably one of the more wildly inconsistent teams this year. They would lose to teams they had no business losing to, and they would crush teams that were better than them.

AUMaverick, BFR, Earl, and ThinkingBulldog were the only ones to pick Nevada.

Broncos vs. Owls

The MAC meets Conference USA in this battle between Western Michigan and Rice.

Rice comes into this game on a 6 game winning streak.

Rice hasn't won a bowl game in over 50 years, while W. Michigan has never won a bowl game (in 5 previous bowl appearances).

Joe and ThinkingBulldog were the only ones to pick Western Michigan.

"I'M A MAN, I'm 40!" vs. Ducks

The holiday bowl is typically a great game, and this year shouldn't be any different.

Oregon comes in on a 3 game winning streak, having destroyed Oregon State in their previous game.

Both teams are 9-3, the Ducks come into this game a bit under the radar, and Oklahoma State's quality play this year has been forgotten because of their end of the season loss to Oklahoma.

In the last 10 meetings, the Big 12 leads this bowl battle 6-4 over the Pac-10. In that time span, Oregon is 1-1 in this bowl game.

AUMaverick, Bubba, Streit, and ThinkingBulldog were the only ones to choose Oregon. Even though I didn't pick them, I'm surprised so few people went with Oregon.


The majority has strongly picked the Terps, the Owls, and the Ducks for today's games.

Here are the most up to date rankings:

-Ally and Earl are now tied for 1st
-Streit is now tied with Jason for 2nd
-Ann&Bob have jumped from the bottom to a 4 way tie for 3rd
-AUMaverick is still in last

Ally - 9pts.
Earl - 9pts.
Jason W. - 8pts.
Streit - 8pts.
Ann & Bob - 7pts.
Stephen S. - 7pts.
BFR - 7pts.
SRQDawg15 - 7pts.
BulldawgJosh - 6pts.
ThinkingBulldog - 6pts.
Bubba - 6pts.
Joe P. - 4pts.
AUMaverick - 3pts.

With Oregon's second half comeback, I pulled a clean sweep in tonight's games. I checked my ESPN bowl entry (which ipicked straight up, not with confidence points) and I am currently in the 98th percentile.

Hopefully my SEC picks will go as well as the other games this week. See ya'll when I get back from Orlando.
