Little Caesars Pizza Bowl

Bowling Green (minus 5 1/2) vs. Pittsburgh

Why watch? Pitt is playing in a bowl and that game is not being played in Birmingham, Ala. This must be seen to be believed. Same goes for Panthers All-America DT Aaron Donald.

Pick: BOWLING GREEN 28-21.

Poinsettia Bowl

Northern Illinois (minus 1 1/2) vs. Utah State

Why watch? Jordan Lynch’s last college game comes against a Utah State defense that is seriously good.

PICK: UTAH STATE 31-28.

FRIDAY, DEC. 27

Military Bowl

Marshall (minus 2 1/2) vs. Maryland

Why watch? Marshall plays fast, has a good offense and a bad defense. The possibility of 49-48 game is always high when the Thundering Herd play, and the Terps can put up points when QB C.J. Brown is healthy.

PICK: MARYLAND 49-48.

Texas Bowl

Minnesota (minus 4 1/2) vs. Syracuse
