Jay Cooper’s 2015 College Bowl Predictions

The Bowl season is upon us and Jay Cooper gives his predictions for each and every Bowl game – 40 in all. It all starts with the New Mexico Bowl between Arizona and New Mexico and concludes with the College Football Championship Game. 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. I’ll have previews for select games including both Playoff games on New Year’s Eve. Enjoy the Bowl season and check back often.
