Bowl Picks: New Years Day Bowl Games

The January 1, 2011 bowl slate is very intriguing, including the Penn State Nittany Lions taking on the Florida Gators in the Outback Bowl. That game will be covered in a different stream, so stay tuned here for the other five games. They include:

Texas Tech vs. Northwestern in the TicketCity Bowl

Michigan State vs. Alabama in the Capital One Bowl

Mississippi State vs. Michigan in the Gator Bowl

TCU vs. Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl

Oklahoma vs. UConn in the Fiesta Bowl

Notice five of the six games played on New Years Day will involved Big Ten teams, with three of them coming against SEC teams. Conference bragging rights will certainly be on the line with this slate, as the Big Ten is off to an impressive 2-0 start.
