And welcome to the stream.
Thank you for joining in.
Ah, so every week I do a weekly show on who ethnic is going to make the new year.
Um, And today I'm gonna do that as well.
We're about halfway through the season now.
Uh, very interesting year of college football so far.
Doing great Big 10 sec.
Both great great conferences this year.
They implying absolutely fantastic.
Ah, and the A C C has been a little bit weaker on confidence like that.
Anyway, I'm gonna get right into it here.
I'm gonna predict every new year, six bowl game.
I do this every week.
Um, not gonna change this week in my predictions, if any.
But anyway, first game, I have the Rose Bowl.
So the Rose Bowl is in California.
This is between the Pat pat, a Pac 12 team and a ah, Big 10 team.
Unless, of course, it's used for the playoff.
Then it could be different.
Ah, but this is not a playoff year for the Rose Bowl.
Next year is so there will be a Big 10 team in the Pac 12 team minute um, I think the PAX world champion.
I don't think they're gonna make the playoffs.
It's pretty clear that organ is the front runner for the Pac 12 right now.
They're looking pretty good.
They have a big if against Washington next week.
If they can win that, they should be set.
Ah, but even if they finished 12 and one, chances are they don't make the playoffs because, ah, strength of schedule is not as good and they're probably weaker team and the other teams will be competing for, like that fourth playoff spot, So I don't see him making the playoffs.
I see Oregon in this Rose Bowl, Um, and then the other team messy into the Big 10 I Wisconsin.
I think Wisconsin Wisconsin is gonna lose the Ohio State twice.
There gonna be a two lost team.
You could argue Penn State or Michigan.
We'll see how that goes.
I would say Michigan because I think they're going bowling game.
They're gonna lose is Ohio State.
But then again, they didn't lose to Wisconsin with source consummate pro.
I get that bit over them.
Ah, and then Penn State could be a team tow.
Watch out for, But they do play Michigan.
If they lose that game, um, their chances are lower.
But for now, I'm going to put anywhere in the post concept and they go 11.
I mean, toria, they go 11 too young to go 11 and two.
They don't want they don't win the championship game, but they have a decent schedule.
11 2 decent record.
All so I have them in the Rose Bowl.
Ah, so they were playing against Oregon.
I still of Wisconsin one in this football game. I haven't changed.
My prediction on this one was constant, just a better team.
Overall, the Oregon offense is pretty good.
Um, the old lines, pretty good tuba.
Besides, from that don't really have much, um, compare its, ah, Wisconsin.
They really don't probably can't keep up.
Wisconsin has a great defense, a great offense.
Jonathan Tailors and ah, fantastic run back.
They have a lot of weapons.
I would go Wisconsin as the Rose Bowl champions.
Next up, I have the, uh, carnivals in the Cotton Bowl.
It's probably Notre Dame right now.
Has a lost their product in the finish, undefeated, if not one more loss that u of Michigan.
I think they'll be favored going into that game.
But it's gonna be a close one, huh? Regardless, tenor to our 11 and one.
This is the bowl game that probably be playing in.
Um, right now, it looks like Virginia may be the front runner for that.
I would say that I would put him in the Orange Bowl, but looks like Virginia is gonna be the front runner for the A C.
C in that room, that orange bowl.
So I can't put Notre Dame in it because that would be a rematch in with.
I don't really like to put rematches in, so I'm just gonna put nor Damon this one. So it's not.
Every match will put Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl.
I think they're the best team left.
Um, because the Cotton ball is at large versus at large.
They're probably best team left.
Ah, and it's against, most likely the group of five champion or the best team in the Group of five.
Out of all, the Group of five winners, which looked right now looks like Boise State.
Ah, Boise State's a great team.
I expect they'll finish on the feet.
The finish undefeated.
Right now, they have 15% to make the chance to make the playoff.
If they do finish on the feed, they probably won't make it regardless.
But this is probably where you expect them to make s o.
I have Boise State in the car, nimble against Notre Dame.
Um, as if no damn can.
I mean, boys, they can do it.
I really don't think they can do it.
They're a great team, but Notre Dame is a lot of weapons.
I and book looks good, especially lately.
Their team looks good.
Overall, I have no ordain when this cotton bowl, that is the cop nor Damon's the carnival champions.
Uh, next one up, I have the, uh, Orange Bowl.
So Orange Bowl right now is gonna have a week a C C. Team.
Many people are probably angry about how there has to be to a C C teams, most likely, and the call in the near six this year, especially because the A.
C is not very good.
Uh, more likely than not, Clemson is gonna make the playoff.
They'll Prague undefeated and that'll be it if they lose one game, but you could very well see them in the orange Well, but right now I still think Virginia, even with that one loss, is the front runner to make the Orange Bowl in the A C C ahead of teams like Miami.
Obviously, teams like Duke, I think they're ahead of Wake Force.
That would that would be my pick.
I think they have one more loss.
There are two more losses.
They lose the clumps and probably ah, but still a decent team overall.
So I think they'll be put into the Orange Bowl.
Ah, and then who will they be facing? This is one I've really It's been tough for me to decide, especially because the Sugar Bowl to that some implications in this, um, again, I couldn't couldn't put nowhere dame because that would be a rematch.
So I thought originally, possibly maybe teams like Georgia, but I came to a decision.
Um, overall, I I put Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.
I'll go over that later.
My team for this game.
I put Florida in this game so I could have put a Big 10 team.
I could have, but I didn't put Notre Dame.
I think Florida is gonna be in this game.
So the Florida would make sense for location, obviously, because they're in Florida and the game is in Florida at Miami.
Not just that, though.
It looks like they're only gonna get one more loss decision that their defense is great.
They'll pry loose the Georgia.
Besides, from that, they'll probably went out.
The fish, with a record of pride, tend to think in location again.
They probably will bit beat out the next Big 10 team.
I really wouldn't expect to see three Big 10 teams in the, uh, even though I like the Big 10 as a conference, I would not expect to see three big tens in the new year.
You could argue for Penn State or Michigan album.
But Michigan doesn't do very well in bowls, so I would put somebody like Florida as the team that goes into the Orange Bowl.
I had four in the ER what's that? I am from the searchable last week, but this year and put them into the Orange Bowl or this week also would be Florida versus Virginia in the Orange Bowl.
I don't expect an upset.
Florida's great defense, Virginia, and they've just had a easy schedule.
So I'll besides no damage.
They lost U S O.
I'll take Florida.
I'm winning the Orange Bowl in.
They'll probably have a little bit of a home crowd advantage, even though it's usually equal in equal.
It's in Florida, so I'll take Florida one in the Orange Bowl.
Next game up is the Sugar Bowl.
So I watched the Red River showdown last week.
I originally had Texas, even with a loss.
Um, even Texas losing before that game, I thought Texas was gonna lose.
I still attached is making the Sugar Bowl.
I've changed a little bit up now, Um, I don't think Tex is gonna win the conference because not just it wasn't because they lost is because how Oklahoma play.
They played really great.
J one hurts. Just looks so good right now.
And I can't see them not making a new year.
Six bowl. So I put them in the Big 12 champions.
Uh, maybe one lost.
Maybe going undefeated.
Um, my guest, probably one lost out.
Uh, so I put them in the ER.
I put them in the Sugar Bowl.
From that was the Big 12 champion.
Um, people may disagree than anyone in the playoff.
I don't think they're good enough to make the playoffs, but that's where I put him, and I put them this treatable On next up, I had Georgia.
Georgia's gonna be going back to my pinch.
This suitable for a second straight year.
Um, if it's Texas that makes the Sugar Bowl, do not expect that Georgia to be in a sugar bowl.
The probably in some ah, bull like maybe the, uh, Orange Bowl.
Ah, but for right now, Azzam's Oklahoma makes the Sugar Bowl.
I would have Georgia and this one.
This would be a great game.
Two great offenses.
The defense for Georgia's price.
Slightly better on the Oklahoma at a good defensive game last week.
It's surprising to say, should be a very great game primer on the best new year.
It'll be a rematch of back of that game a couple of years ago.
Obviously, the Russians have changed a lot, but still be a great game, Uh, in the suitable.
Overall, I would I won't see Georgia losing again in the discernible.
Not for a second straight year.
You could argue Oklahoma, but I feel like that defense for George is gonna be what helps them again.
Oklahoma and May just about one game or their defense is great.
Um, expected to give a little bit of a challenge, but I overall will take God George on this one.
The offense for Oklahoma.
Slightly better but Jake from still decent quarterback.
And he has a lot of weapons to go to s o.
I will take, um, George will in this one.
And the swift is a great running back s Oh, yeah, Georgia ones.
Uh, that actually leads me to my playoffs now eso for the playoff.
Obviously, it's four teams.
This year's playoff game games are the Fiesta Bowl and the the was it started.
The peaceful eso preach balls in Atlanta Fiesta bowls in Arizona.
Um, based on location of my 14 match up, my 14 matchup is gonna be in the Peach Bowl.
And Linda, it's the It's Alabama as the one seed versus Ellis you, the four seed.
My playoff has not changed since the last week.
Uh, Ellis, you looks great.
The number two ranked team, the nation, they really should be one number one.
Right now, they're being floor in Texas.
Two great teams, but I think they're no lose at album in a very, very close game.
Um, so I'm gonna take I'm gonna take in this one.
Um, I'm the Put them as the force he just cause I think it's gonna be close game as long.
If it's not closed, then they probably get into the playoffs.
If clothes show them that they compete can compete with Alabama, then the committee might decide to put Ellis you into that playoff instead of a team like Oklahoma.
But I'll take Ellis you at the four.
Um And then, like I said, Alabama, the one they should they should win out should be under fear this year.
In my opinion, their schedules not too, too hard.
I mean, they have auburn at at Auburn.
They'll be very hard for them.
But aside from that, they should be.
It shouldn't be terrible anyway.
Again, like I said, Alabama versus tell issue in the Sugar Bowl.
It's kind of like an S E.
C championship game all over, except it's like an SEC West championship game.
In a way, um, so L issue right now is struggling, the kind of struggling with its defense.
They've been letting up a lot of points per game.
Their offense has making up for a job, for it was great.
That told Team is great.
They have a lot of weapons to go to.
Ah, that Ellis, you often see, in my opinion, is the best in the nation defense, though.
Like I said, it's not very great. Alabama.
Um, they emigrate.
They have pretty good defense.
Their offense is better than their difference this year.
Both basically both albumin.
Ellis. You used to be defensive powerhouses.
Now they're more like offensive power houses, too, was great.
He's setting records, Um, but they're more of an offensive team as well.
Overall, I think the offense for Ellis you this time around is gonna overpower the Alabama defense.
It's gonna be a very high scoring game, that that's what I expect.
I know it's crazy to say for two SEC teams that usually have low scoring games, especially with the coaches, it's very crazy to say usually see these low scoring games, but their offenses are really great this year, especially L issues and expected to be a high scoring game with Ellis.
You winning the Peach Bowl. So they're the Peach Bowl champions.
The four seed Alice You next up two and three.
Um, I have playing in the Fiesta Bowl.
Obviously, it's Ohio State and Clemson.
The order doesn't really matter.
I do have Ohio State after two because their strength of schedule coming up right now, it's not been very hard.
Samos Clemson's but Clemson doesn't have anybody coming up.
Where is the House? Stays up late.
Penn State, Wisconsin, Michigan.
If they do, then to the Big 10 championship game, they play Pride Wisconsin again on they have to play Northwestern.
Who could be a challenge this week S Oh, it's very hard Ohio State schedules.
So I think they'll get the two seed even with a loss.
Um, so this game should be interesting.
Ohio State and my pain is the best overall team, I said.
L issues the best defense.
Oh, how state Overall, it's probably best team, I said.
L issues the best often.
Sorry I was to the best offense.
Um, Ohio State probably is the best defense in the in college football.
That that's my pain.
I don't think there's any team out there that's very defense in them.
Their offense is pretty good.
It's not Ellis you type, but it's It's very good, then the best team overall, compared like point differential and stuff like that.
They're probably the best team in all, not the best offense, but like it's for the best defense.
Clemson has been shaking this year.
Clemson offenses great.
Their defense is pretty good.
Um, they'll they know how to play.
I mean, travelers, just a good quarterback.
He'll he'll get back to it.
He'll be good when they get to the playoff.
They should be better.
Uh, I must take Ohio State to win this one, though, because their defense is just so overwhelmed.
They have so many, so many great guys on that defense to be very overwhelming for General Lawrence, who's thrown a lot of interceptions this year.
That Clemson offense, Like I said, it's gonna be better, obviously, in the playoffs, but he still might have a little bit of a struggle.
Ah, and the offense for Ohio State.
Justin Fields playing like great right now s so I will take Ohio State with a closed after little bit close.
I don't think I'll be a blowout.
Me like a 10 point game.
Ohio State over Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl That leaves the House Day and L issue in the national championship game.
This is why one my favorite matchups that could ever happen for national championship game.
I'll be fine with Alabama and Clemson again.
That's always a good one.
But this would be an interesting one.
Ohio Stay in L C U eso.
I'm taking Ohio State in the national championship game for several reasons.
Uh, the main one being Ellis us. Great offense.
It bear Little House states.
They both have great offenses.
But the thing that really separates them is the fact that the defense, the Alice to defense, whether you like it or not, is not very great.
It's not very great.
It's surprising to say that, but it's not great.
This year they've been letting up a ton of points.
Each game seems to like Vanderbilt.
They're still there, often just still overwhelming, and it might get to a House did a couple of times, but against a team like Ohio State, where the defense is actually that good, the best in the league, um, I think it's going to stop him.
It could be close, but, ah, how state overall is a great team.
They have their great offense.
I think they'll overpower Alice used defense.
And I think the defense for House State is going to stop l issues offense a couple of times, which might be the difference.
So I'm gonna take a House state in this game, Um, coaching situation.
So coaches air doing great this year? Um, or the coaching grant should say, But I will take Ohio State in the ass a championship game.
It will be interesting because it is in that, um, New Orleans.
We'll see if that matters at all, cause it might be Ellis.
You kind of you might see more fans on the Alice You side.
Ah, but I expect to be a great game.
Take Ohio State that when you ask championship game.
So that is it for the stream.
Thank you for joining in guys again.
My bowl picks were Rose Bowl, Wisconsin, over Oregon.
