New Year's Eve Bowl Games

Bowl season finally heats up with 6 games today followed by 6 more tomorrow. This year's bowl season is bringing a familiar trend. Just about every game features a team with a new/departing/interim head coach or key players being suspended, either for test scores or crime. Here's the picks for New's Year Eve:
South Florida (-6) over Oregon. So. Florida's looking to cap off an unbelievable year for the school's football program. Oregon has looked flat out awful since Dennis Dixon went down.
Fresno St. (+6) over Georgia Tech. Tech's another team with coaching controversy.
Kentucky (-9 1/2) over Florida St. How could you take the Seminoles. You start 22 guys on offense and defense, and they have 36 players suspended!
Indiana (+4 1/2) over Oklahoma St. This game means a lot more to the Hoosiers.
Finally, the best game of the day, Auburn (+2 1/2) over Clemson. Should be a hard hitting, fun game to watch. Goin War Eagle just because they're getting points. Should be a close game decided by defense.
Happy New Year's from Pasadena!
