Pitt beat Vt btw
Yep, thanks for the correction. I fixed it.
Allready 0-1 today. Had BG plus 7-1/2 and winning 24-21, SJSU won and covered 29-20
Also have UC -7 1/2, winning 37-22 and that ain't looking good with Duke up 16-3 late in the first quarter
Later I have UCLA as a pick'em over Baylor 47-44 (the big question is whether I will still be up at 1:30 a.m. when that game ends)
OK, gotta love UC backed up on their own 5, eventually hitting an 83-yard TD pass and then getting a 55-yard pick-6 two plays later for a back door cover-and-kill. Just a glimmer of hope ...
Then UCLA falls behind 14-0 (bleep).
Picks w/ updated lines:
GL to ALL
Baylor buried UCLA 49-26 for those who could not stay up. Lot of people tweeting that Briles could be a candidate at Texas if/when Mack wraps it up.
I need to start a hot streak ... today.

OK, six big games today. I am now 15-9 straight-up and 12-11 against-the-spread on the bowls after a perfect 4-0 day ATS on Monday.
I have all the dogs today .. Purdue plus 16 1/2, NW plus 1 1/2, Neb plus 10, Michigan plus 6, Wisconsin plus 6 1/2, NIU plus 13 1/2 ... don't ask me why, I just ended up that way. Plus I have NW and Wis wiinning outright. We shall see.
I was 5-1 straight-up (losing on Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl) and 3-3 ATS on Jan. 1.
I actually feel good about how this all went. Nebraska was a good pick, the Huskers had ample opps to play Georgia within 10, but their turnovers and porous defense made it a 14-point game in the end. They have a lot of work to do this off-season. I saw them give up 63 to OSU, 70 to Wis and 45 to Georgia (with 6 TDs of 24 yards or longer!!). That isn't Neb football.
I whiffed on Purdue. Clearly they were way out of their league and had no interest.
Nailed Northwestern, first bowl win in decades. Happy for Fitz. He is a good football coach.
Michigan had the lead and gave up a late TD to South Carolina. They were right there.
Wisconsin just could not make a play. Stanford stopped them cold. Still won that one by half-point ATS.
NIU had opps but lost battle of attrition eventuallly against FSU, which came to play. The ACC "improved" to 3-12 all-time in the BCS with a win over a MAC school. Congratulations!!
today, Florida favored by 13-1/2 over Louisville. I have Florida 27-17 (love them double-digit dogs). Strong staying with Cards should help the continuity and team togetherness, but can Bridgewater (now healthy) make plays against Gators' D?? Hmmm. Back tomorrow with rest of picks.
OK, got Louisville ATS at least.
I am now 20-11 straight up and 16-14 ATS on the bowls.
My pick for Fiesta Bowl:
