Josh Heupel’s super-fast attack on Kenny pickett and Pitt’s explosive offense has the potential to be one of the best bowling games of all time. Meanwhile, Clemson and Texas go head-to-head in the Cheez-It Bowl, which doesn’t have the same glow it did before the season. Iowa and Texas A&M may put you to sleep, but you’ll like it if you’re a physical football fan (assuming the Aggies don’t lose half their defense to the draft that preceded it).
When it comes to the Group of Five, there are a ton of showdowns that I love about this group. Utah State and western Kentucky have two of the most underrated pass attacks in the country. Bailey Zappe and Logan Bonner go head-to-head, as do Jerreth Sterns and Deven Thompkins. Don’t you know their names? Look for them.
UCF finally shoots an opponent from the State in Miami (FL), who may not have a head coach by then. The military and the state of Fresno face off in battle, while the secret teams in Louisiana and Houston have the makings of a thriller.
Two potential conference champions are paired with UTSA and App State, while the newly bowl-eligible ECU faces a former CAA coach to Justin Fuente and Virginia Tech.

Oklahoma’s loss to Baylor toppled another key domino for Cincinnati to advance to the playoffs. Our last college football bowl screenings left them out, but it’s the best chance a Group of Five team has ever had to pull it off, so we’re putting the Bearcats up to face Georgia. Last year’s Peach Bowl rematch should be entertaining.
Speaking of revenge, Ohio State gets another shot at Oregon. The Buckeyes have been playing the lights while the Ducks just seem to get by with poor competition. If both win, they should be in the playoffs, which will lead to that highly anticipated rematch.
Alabama, in this situation, lost to Georgia in the SECOND Championship game, pushing them to two losses. They face an Oklahoma State team that doesn’t quite qualify for the playoffs, even if they win the conference. Michigan can still make a playoff run, but needs the help of Ohio State and then needs to beat the Buckeyes. Utah is playing well and could ruin Oregon’s playoff hopes in the coming weeks.
Notre Dame are a tough team to beat right now, as are Baylor. Bring these two together in the Fiesta Bowl and you have instant entertainment. Then, the Peach Bowl features Wake Forest and Michigan State, two teams that have had surprising seasons. Demon Deacons QB Sam hartman and Spartans RB Kenneth walker iii have years of careers for their teams.
