Welcome to the stream making for joining in.
So today I'm gonna be doing some bull projections just for, ah, college football bull mania.
I'm sorry I haven't been on recently on sports, Castor.
If I've had a lot to do lately, I missed a lot of the Army Navy game.
I missed conference championship weekend.
I couldn't broadcast a game that we cause I've been busy quite a lot, but I'm back here finally, and I must be going over my bull projections.
All but one are Two bowl eligible teams made a ble the only to the dinner Missouri, and they weren't allowed to compete for a bull for some eligibility reason.
Um, and then there was Toledo.
Toledo was the only six and six team who is allowed to make it, who did not get in there kind of like a Mac team.
Not really very relevant.
Eso Most teams did get into the bowl games on which is good to see.
So we start out this Friday, 2 p.m.
Eastern, um, with the 1st 1st bowl game of the year.
We have 40 bowl games in all 41.
If you count the national championship game.
I'm not probably do 10 to 15 maybe bowl games right now, just like in my project predictions on them.
So we start out with a Buffalo and Charlotte.
This is the Makers. One.
Bahamas Bowl in the name.
Obviously, you couldn't tell It's in the Bahamas, which is a pretty cool place to start out the bowl games.
Um, probably won't be many fans from both the teams because again, go to the Bahamas isn't the easiest trip to go to, uh, so Charlotte in Buffalo Bill 7 to 5, Charlotte's first ever appearance in a bowl game.
I believe this is Buffalo's third or something like that.
Um, both teams, you know, 7 to 5.
Ah, you probably haven't watched them too much.
Buffalo is from the Mid American Conference, and I believe Charlotte is, I believe, Charlotte's from Conference USA.
So both teams did not win their conference.
Kind of like a little bit more middle of the pack of you go a little bit higher than that, but Buffaloes favored by six and 1/2 points.
Um, recently games Buffalo has been dominating their games for the most part.
Ah, Few games ago, they lost to a bowl eligible team and Kent State.
Ken States better fire recently, I'll get to them on my next game.
Actually, Charlotte's had some close games.
They've had some good games, but they haven't really played anybody great.
But they have been on a win streak recently.
But again, both 75.
You probably only watched them when they played Clemson, and maybe if you watch them play upstate, that's probably the only time you watch them.
They didn't play clumps when their ring number one, they got destroyed.
He was in Clemson.
What do you expect from them? That was That was really the only time somebody probably didn't watch them.
They wouldn't like a losing streak of 44 games that they were.
They were two and five, actually, and they just want out the rest of the season.
A great a great turn around for them.
Ah, surprising turn around.
But they make their first ever bowl game.
Charlotte, they're playing against Buffalo.
Um, I will take Buffalo, though.
I'm gonna take Buffalo.
Both teams, I feel like buffalo is just a little bit better.
Both teams not really experienced.
I just feel like Buffalo has been dominating a little bit more in this scenario.
I'm gonna take Buffalo.
Uh, I just have to go with Buffalo.
I feel like Charlotte is not a great team overall, and they've been having some close games, some of their wins.
So I would I would rather take buffaloed.
Charlotte and Strong.
It hasn't Charlotte has never been doable Game before.
Buffalo has get Buffalo.
Not much experience, but least they have but the bowl games before.
But this is the first time Charlotte's ever doing this, eh? So I'll take Buffalo on this one.
But it could be Charlotte.
It would be a great story if Charlotte where the win, I just don't think will happen next.
Utah. Stay at Kent State.
So Cat states had a pretty tough schedule.
I believe they've played some great teams.
I think they put like Ellis.
You they've played like was Collins and they've played some good top 10 teams, so Ken State has not had the easiest schedule.
Um, they're on a three game winning streak.
They beat some decent teams, they be Buffalo.
They'd be Eastern Michigan University who are both bowl eligible teams playing and bulls.
Ah, but Utah States and a little bit better of a group of five conferences on the Power five Conference.
They are in a better conference, though.
The last loss they got blown out by Boise State.
Again, though, it's Boise State.
What do you expect? They lost to BYU as well.
Off a BYU has actually had a decent sees their bowl eligible.
Be why you've been a big surprise.
They've been a lot of good teams.
Um, yeah, like they beat us.
See that be Tennessee.
Who's now seven and five.
They beat Boise State.
So BYU is actually not that out of a team.
So their losses recently haven't been terrible for a group of five team.
I like Utah a little better.
You tossed a little bit better.
Right now, they're favored by seven.
I think they should be feared by more their offense that it's about the same as 10 States offense.
Defense is a little bit better.
Um, I think that might be a big difference.
And again better, better competition toward the end of season.
Other strong this season, because Ken Stay has been played they played great teams at the start, the season.
To be fair, though, it was against teams they had no chance against.
Like, if you're they play like jealousy of wars, that's like, I mean, they have no chance against jealousy.
So I'm not gonna really call that battle tested because there's no chance and they got absolutely destroyed.
But I again I guess I guess those air tours, I guess, considering that a group of five team as at least they lose to somebody like Akron or something like that, it was just terrible.
But still the not you can't really send a battle tested just cause they got absolutely destroyed, like demolished by a team like Alice View because they really didn't do anything in that game.
Um, yeah, Kent State.
They've have losses to Toledo, Um, and they had lost to Miami, Ohio, Miami, Ohio if she won their conference.
But there were a relative, actively average team in the Mid American Conference, They just again, they kind of got lucky they didn't have the greatest out of conference schedule, were better in conference and won their conference there.
Another dying, I believe, which is actually surprising here because Ken State, six and six in Toledo, six and six and consider they lost Toledo.
I'm surprised they didn't put Toledo into a bowl game instead of Kent State, but Ken State just makes into all these bowl games.
This is the Tropical Smoothie Cafe Cafe Frisco ball.
It's on Friday, but again, I'm taking Utah State to win this game.
I just feel like they're a better team and a better conference has been playing better opponents recently.
One second, I think, just froze.
Give me one second.
Yeah, but I I just like right now, I think Utah State's a better team.
If you didn't watch my first bull, I think Buffalos bear team Here, let me get this set up on my phone because right now, my iPad, it's not working.
Just got to get this up quickly.
All right. Next game up.
Celebration bowl, Alcorn stay and North Carolina anti.
Most likely, you haven't watched these two teams play North Carolina and T is eight and three.
Alcorn State's 93 Alcorn State believe just one at a conference on these Through these two teams, they're they're playing into land.
I believe in them in Mercedes Benz Stadium.
It's on Saturday.
These two teams, I believe the last five years have faced off in bulk.
The has have faced off in this bowl game, I think three of the last five years.
Um, there in the swamp, I believe.
I believe they're both in this walk.
I'm pretty sure, um, swaps a weird conference.
I haven't gone toe Watch it much, but they kind of associated with with the F B s, even though it's not really an FBS.
These are really the only two non FBS teams to get into a bowl game.
But yeah, they just have FBS teams here.
Yeah, Alcorn State beat Southern and their conference championship game.
Yeah, they're they're in the F.
C s team, but for some reason, they get kind of FBS treatment.
I don't know why in North Carolina aids a North Carolina anti.
They've been OK.
They haven't been great.
I'm taking out Corn State anyway, their conference champion champion.
Right now they're a little bit of a better street.
Just in my opinion, on their few losses have came two teams in, like close games like at Grambling State.
So really not it annoyed.
They beat Southern twice, actually.
Um, so I'll take Alcorn State in the celebration bullet again.
These two teams have played a lot.
I would just trust out corn.
Stay a little bit more, but again, kind of cool.
They get like some FBS treatment against play in a bowl.
All right. Next game up.
Central Michigan University versus San Diego State University.
So Central Michigan lost their conference championship game to Miami, Ohio.
The Mac Championship stand.
San Diego State University finished nine and three on the season.
This is a New Mexico bull, so San Diego State might have a little bit more of the crowd.
Um, San Diego State's had a great season.
They were ****d at one point, and Central Michigan has to.
They've had a great turn around, a pretty cool story that they came up short in the conference championship game 26 to 21.
But both pretty good stories.
Having great seasons, I do trust, Um, I do trust San Diego State a little bit more because I kind of like I said, with Utah State in Kent State, there's a big difference between somebody in the Mountain West Comparator like somebody in the Mac or the or Conference USA.
It just exists is a big difference between because the Mountain West is a respectable conference in the Group of Five that can eat possibly produced multiple ranked teams in the season.
Um, right now San Diego State, they've been, if the last few games that they face face pretty hard opponents and their losses have been like three or four point losses.
So it's been close losses.
They be put BYU.
They're very, they're on the lower size scoring.
They only averaged 19 points a game, but then again, they only allowed 12.
8 points per game, so their games have been very low scoring.
They're usually closer where Central Michigan's.
Sometimes they're close, sometimes or not.
Central Michigan's more of a high scoring team, but they don't have the great defense again.
I do think conferences will play a factor and competition stuff like that.
Right now, I'm gonna take San Diego State.
You never know. You continue upset.
But San Diego state of a team on the verge of being ranked if they win this game, they might be ring 25th in the eight people.
You never know, but right now, I think they're pretty good.
Um, and Central Michigan did just lose lose the last game, so might be a little bit, you know, shaken up.
Um, I'm gonna take Sandy will stay with this one. Okay.
Liberty in Georgia Southern kind of Ah, more relevant bull.
Georgia liberties Independent.
I believe plays in the Sun Belt Conference isn't curable on CBS Sports Network to 30 I believe on Saturday.
So Georgia Southern's feared by five Georgia Southern actually have some decent winds.
Um, Liberty, Independence.
So they play a lot of decent teams, but they beat AP State, which was huge.
AB states obviously ranked, they beat Georgia State who beat Tennessee.
From there they have been If he sometimes they lost Detroit tramp.
Troy upsets like everybody, but still not a great loss.
Yes, seven and five overall in the sun Belt against It's hard to say Liberty.
Actually, Georgia Southern only lost by 32 minutes, so I forgot to point that out.
So that's a pretty good loss, I guess you could say, because they at least could test in them.
They are destroyed by Alice you.
That was the first game this season for them wasn't even close.
Um, but right now, this one could go.
Either way, this one could go either way.
Um, it really could.
I feel like Georgia Southern has that great.
When Liberace faced some get opponents as well.
But they've lost three other last five because destroyed by Virginia lost of you.
Why you? The last one was against New Mexico State, who was like a 11 team.
They lost the Rutgers, which is a big problem for me.
If they lose to Rutgers, that's a big, big problem.
Um, I'm gonna take Georgia Southern with in this game to take Georgia Southern.
I'll take them up.
Surprised their favorite because they're in the sun Belt. But they are.
I'll take Georgia solemn lutefisk that with this one s some you versus FAA. You.
This will be a very tough one to pick its the Boca Rodham Radon bolt.
I might be saying that runk it's in Florida either f a u stadium, which is kind of gonna be a problem for S M u F a U.
Obviously their coach is leaving.
Um, so that's gonna be it's gonna be a little bit it's gonna be.
I'm kind of a big story.
Obviously, in the game, they'll talk about a lot.
The announcers coach is leaving.
So, you know, um, it will be a great way for FAA you to go out with one last one.
Put the extra exclamation point on their season.
But s and us well, could possibly be ****d with a win on the A P pull if they win this game against the decent F a U team who won Conference USA and 10 3 their fair by three estimate their fair by three again.
Like I said, though, they don't have that whole field.
U has a huge home field advantage, considering it's literally being played in their stadium, so that's gonna be a big advantage for them.
They've got a bigger story right now.
Um, s, um he's been a little bit higher scoring.
They've been if you know, lately they've been they've been very, um, questionable lately.
Had a lot of close games with not great teams.
Um, you know, I just really They compare the start of the season when they were destroying teams.
It's been a lot different lately.
That Memphis loss changed a lot about the season for them, and that's been a big problem for them lately.
A little bit more high, scoring the FAA, you defense is a little bit better than the S and you defense overall, Sm knew like I said, it's had some close games.
They lost the Navy.
They lost in Memphis.
That's two other last four.
They barely beat Eastern Carolina University.
Barely be Houston.
They've had a lot of close games lately.
F A u has been on a great winning streak.
Um, they've destroyed everybody in their path.
F i U who beat Miami.
I mean, Miami's not great, but still, it's a power five team.
They they destroyed you.
It you would be in their conference championship game.
They've been doing great lately, so it's a very hard one to pick.
I usually like I said to go by conferences.
The American Athletic Conference is a lot better than than the Conference USA.
By the same time, home field advantage for F a u a better story.
I feel like more than line for them.
Um, been playing better lately.
I will take FAA.
You here in an upset.
That there favorite.
I mean, Essam years Favorito Favorito win by three.
But I will take FAA You with this one.
I just feel like writing down the name played a lot better.
All right, so f a u yeah.
On next game up.
Florida International University versus Arkansas State for International Punch.
Their ticket to Obel game when they beat Miami.
A huge win for them hasn't happened in a while.
And just a great, great, great win They lost last week, though, which wasn't great, but still a big win for them against Miami.
They're playing Arkansas State.
Who? Seven of five.
Um, probably one of the more less entertaining bowl games is the chameleon Camelia Bowl.
It's on Saturday at 5:30 p.m.
Eastern Time S O.
Right now, Arizona State is favored to win by 22 and 1/2 points.
Their offense has been a little bit better if I use defense has been a little bit better yet.
Florida International lost Marshall all last week. 30 27.
They they got destroyed by f a U a few weeks before, but again they beat my Abby that they beat Miami, which is crazy.
But they have dropped three of their last five working saw state lost the last one by four points.
But then again, they won the four.
Before that, some of those weren't close, so this one could go.
Either way, this one could go.
Either way, they be Georgia Sothern who has a few good wins.
This one should be interesting.
I'm going to take if I you, though, I'll take F I u um, I just feel like I don't know.
I marshals and not even Marshall is not that bad of a team.
You They've been to a decent recently, and so far I feel like if I you if that what? Against Miami that's gonna help a ble that's gonna give me the cup.
Give them the confidence they need some taking f a f i u of this one. They have a better defense.
It's not as good.
But, you know, I'm gonna take the defense here.
So if I You my pig? All right. Next one, up here.
This one is probably the hardest pick of the day just cause there's so much on the line, this one.
This is the gamble on Saturday makes her in for in Washington game Saturday.
Make sure it's Boise State versus Washington.
Boy, oh boy, this is gonna be a great game to watch.
It's in just such a It's such a good storyline, obviously.
Coach Peterson of Washington, Um, he's retired now, and he's his last game.
He's going up against the dynasty he built in the Group of Five Boise State.
Not necessarily championship wise, but the team has what Kelis Fiesta bowls countless Las Vegas Bulls.
Sure enough, he's playing Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl, so it's a great story line.
A great, great storyline Boise State almost made to the Cotton Bowl this year.
They're probably the second pick.
Memphis slightly edged a belt.
They finished 12 and one.
Boise State ranked 19th in the country.
Ah, great season for Boise State when the mound was conference championship game pretty easily on their playing a decent team in Washington, Washington has had kind of a hard schedule.
They had to play Utah.
They had to play USC.
They had to play award again already TB's.
So it hasn't been the easiest schedule.
The digging a big wood against Washington state of last time they played.
So they finished seven and five, um, a little bit worse than they expected to be.
There are ranked like in the top 15 to start the season, but now they're not raked.
Boise State rate.
They were this strong this season. They are now.
It should be a great game.
It should be a great game because it's like Who do you pick the guy who set up always statement to succeed, or the team that always seems to pull out a great win.
It's such a hard pick.
Such a great story line.
I'm I wonder if Chris Fowler will do this game in current term streets because this is gonna be a great game.
Washington is favored by three and 1/2 points.
Um, the offense for Boise State has been a little bit better.
Obviously, they don't play in the ask of the conference, but still on the defense's have been a just about even.
Boise State has won their last five.
Um, they didn't have a tad Wyoming, which is a close game in overtime, but they've been doing better recently.
Their won loss was Toby.
Why you? Which is a very close game.
This is This is the Las Vegas Bowl, By the way, I don't know if I mentioned that.
They haven't been as great recently, but again they played Utah That played Oregon.
They played. They played Oregon State.
They've lost three of their last five.
They actually could be Oregon State.
They lost to Colorado.
This one is a hard one to pick.
And it's so hard to go against Peterson.
Um, but the dynasty started is so great right now it's It's just hard to pick this one.
Um, I'm gonna go.
Boise State boys say it always finds a way to win.
I mean, sodas Peterson and feels like, but I have to go with Boise State.
So the diocese he started at least of the group of five, I feel like he will lose to that.
Just my opinion on it's gonna be a great game and figure well with a win against his former team that any coach great for him.
I just don't feel I feel like it's gonna happen.
Core back in game, I will have meant didn't get visions.
A pretty good quarterback, the acid as best season.
But he's a decent quarterback, so he could, uh, do pretty well, um, this game.
I just don't see it happening, uh, with Washington.
Gain the victory, but is gonna be close.
It should be very close.
Washington Fair by three and 1/2.
I'm taking Boise State to wood.
Yeah, and I'll do two more bowl games onto two more bowl games, and I'll do part two of O mania later.
Stay in U A B ab states 12 and one bring 20 of my country.
A great season for them.
You probably still remember for over there them upsetting Michigan, then being in the F.
C s now than the Sun Belt.
Thrive, thriving 12 and one ranked 20 from the country.
They're playing you.
Abie, who's 94 just come came off at, came off of a loss and their conference championship game against Floor Atlantic, which is a blow.
It obviously, but AP State got a big wood against Louisiana.
Ah, lot of the experts have been doubting AP State recently.
They're favored by 17.
But I've seen a lot of people on TV say how they think maybe you A B is gonna come out with an upset.
Um, they thought it was Louisiana left by at that peop people thought they might upset after state.
I've been pretty big on every state all season.
They're a good team, you and be just I feel like I picked them the wind, their championship game, their conference championship game.
That didn't happen after watching that game.
This is the New Orleans ball, by the way.
I feel like at State's gonna win. Their offense is better.
Their defense is that are about the same.
This is one of things.
I thought you a beat.
It could do well.
But after watching them last game against F A U A T who's not even as good as AP State, I'm having second thoughts.
So I really have to go with AP State.
Here it's in there ****d nine PM by the way, on Saturday, I have to go without state.
I just feel like they're better team, seeing that you would be a strolled before lost you in Conference USA.
Um, I really thought they had a chance at being in floor landing, but seeing that, I don't really give him much of a chance this game.
App States would do a great.
They have wins against two power five teams.
South Carolina Who beat Georgia? I did.
I know I wanted to use the transit prop property too much, but still they beat South Carolina in South Carolina in South Carolina. Beat Georgia.
And they also beat UM, North Carolina, North Carolina.
I mean, a bowl eligible teams are team that's in a bowl game.
That's a pretty good with it.
It's pretty good. One against the power five seem concerned.
There from the Sun Belt destroyed Georgia State Be try pretty easily again.
They ve which is a decent when laugh.
I have only have two losses coming into that game.
So a pretty good team overall, I'm gonna take AP State.
This one I think most people probably will agree.
Some of the experts won't.
But I would say half state wins this game.
Our UCF versus Marshall.
So originally I was thinking for Sir UCF because obviously there UCF their standard for the group of five teams at least recently.
Uh, at least the last few years, I guess you could say 2017 where they went undefeated, 5th 40 You know, I was a great season for them.
Um uh, then I then they had was that they had, ah, last year, but they went undefeated all the way up to the championship game or all the way up to the Fiesta Bowl, where they lost a L S U in a close game.
So they have had a pretty good seasons the last few years.
This year they finished 93 some disappointing losses overall and started with Pittsburgh.
Ah, they went to Pittsburgh.
They only lost by one absolute thriller.
It was a shoot out.
Almost won that game.
Just a close game and they lost them.
Now all hope at that point wasn't lost because they could have went out one.
The American athletic and still very well could have made it to the Conable, considering their only loss would be against a bowl eligible team.
A team from the a.
So it wasn't the whole hope wasn't lost then.
But after that, they just don't know what happened on them.
They lost in Tulsa, they lost Cincinnati.
And from there on, they've been kind of inconsistent this year.
It's been disappointed to see that from UCF because, uh, they been great the last few seasons.
Marshall is eight and four.
This is the gas Paree, Carrillo ball, it said Raymond James Stadium in Florida.
It's on Monday, next Monday.
Uh, UCF is fared by walking 17 points.
That's a big, big margin.
Ah, their offense is better.
Their defense is they're about even, Um, but I feel like Marshall's been a little more consistently.
We all know they did lose the Charlotte Ah, but they beat F I U.
Who's a decent? Would they beat we? They beat Louisiana Tech.
They beat rice breasts.
Action is good, but maybe Western Kentucky, whose bullet bull So I would take it upset here I will take a big, big upset.
Um, I just feel like UCF hasn't been played fantastically.
They lost the toll, so they really be too late.
So I'm taking a huge upset here in Marshall Woods and yeah, that's it.
Ah, that'll be it for now, guys.
Thank you for joint again.
So those are my part.
One bull picks just in some of the bulls.
I'll repeat them again.
The ones I did I buffalo over Charlotte Ah, Utah State over Ted State.
I'd Alcorn State over North Carolina 88 and t r a n t When my say and t ah, San Diego State over Central Michigan University Uh, Georgia Southern Over Liberty F a u over S m U If I You over Arkansas State boys, you stayed over.
Washington abstained over u A b in a big upset with Marshall over UCF.
I haven't given much love to the ah American athletic teams.
I notice that two games for American athletic teams already.
I both have them losing even though they're favored by just like there might be some upsets.
Ah, so those are my picks, guys, Thank you for joining again.
I appreciate it.
I'll be back with part too soon.
Probably will come out tomorrow night if I can offer that Suffered out guys taken for joining it
