Jay Cooper’s 2018 College Bowl Predictions

The Bowl season is upon us and Jay Cooper gives his predictions for each and every Bowl game – 39 in all plus the Title Game. The action gets underway on Saturday, December 15th and concludes with the College Football Championship Game on January 7th. Picks will be posted a day or two before the game takes place. I don’t like to post them earlier, because as we’ve seen in the past, players get suspended and the lines move dramatically and even more recently, potential NFL Draft picks decide to take themselves out of the game. I’ll have previews for select games including both Playoff games. Enjoy the Bowl season and check back often.
