It's Getting Exciting

The scores as of 12/29.

Here we go! Since the past update, several lesser bowls have played, including the first bowls with Pac 12 entrants. The biggest movers and shakers for these bowls were the Quick Lane Bowl, with Boston College besting Maryland. In our poll, only 22 percent of entrants picked Boston College as the winner. The Cactus Bowl, with Baylor handily defeating Boise State, had the same split. The Military Bowl, where Wake Forest eeked it out over Temple, had a similar disparity as only 33 percent of entrants picked the correct winner.

The biggest upset, however, was the Holiday Bowl. Only one person (yay, Erin!) correctly picked Minnesota to win. Being the first Pac 12 game, she gains two points. Way to represent, Washington State. Not to be out-done, Lauren gambled and won by being the only person to pick Kansas State in the Texas Bowl. She only got one point for that particular guess, but jumped to third-place position.

Three bowls play today, with the Alamo Bowl being the most consequential. Good luck!
