Peter’s Pack of Pickled Pigskin Picks- Bowl Edition
It’s bowl season. The time of year when 64 teams play meaningless games for bragging rights and bowls of cash for their football programs. At least now two games matter, and the winners of those go for the National Championship. So, pick your favorites of the most important bowls, or at least, the ones I think are the “classic” bowls I remember from years past. The tie breaker is the semi final game between Washington and Alabama. The team scores may be as far apart as the two schools are, but who knows? And there is a second tie breaker if needed: the National Championship game January 9. (If I were in charge, there wouldn’t be any college football in January at all.)
Remember to get your guesses in by Noon EST, on Friday, December 30.
