    Sun Bowl is marked as Cancelled by Capital One but it's back on with Central Michigan sliding over from the Arizona Bowl to play Washington State. I wonder if they'll put it back in play for the contest.

    We'll I'm 12-12 and heading toward the bottom. I made my picks early before everybody quit on their teams for the NFL, entered the portal, got covid, teams dropped out etc. I don't know if there was an opportunity to change picks or not but I decided to let me original picks stand as an experiment. Obviously I am failing !

    Ah Bill, I'm just letting you have a little hope that you can be the worst.
    Soon I'll break your spirit as I dive to a rock bottom that no one else can achieve!

    George, I did the same. The only pick I've changed has been the Gator bowl, changing from a probable loss of my Aggies, over to Wake Forest who will now lose due to my pick. ;)

    They never did add the Sun Bowl back into the mix.

    Just wait till I make my choices then pick the other team. You'll be right 99% of the time.

    I wonder if we will have another exciting day today or see blowouts from the favorites? This year has been a great bowl season to watch on live streaming.:)

    In Raleigh at our son's house in Raleigh. Seems to have changed my luck. Made it all the way to last then up to tied for 6th.

    Go figure.

    hope all of you had a Gappy New Year

    The end is near folks... somehow I'm only one game behind Bob!
    I really expected to lose the rest of my picks, but somehow a few came through.
    I can't even seem to snatch defeat...
    :p
