Predictions For Major College Football Bowl Games

Predictions For Major College Football Bowl Games

Well, here it is. The final College Football Playoff bracket and rankings have been announced, and we are in for a show. The number one seeded Clemson Tigers will face off against the number four Oklahoma Sooners, and the number two Alabama Crimson Tide will take on the number three Michigan State Spartans. The Playoff features every power conference besides the Pac-12, so the furthest West team would be from Norman, Okla. But the games should still see a large audience because the first round of games are to be played on New Year’s Eve this year, rather than New Year’s Day.

This season has been a wild one, to say the least. From hail Mary touchdown throws in the final seconds to win the game, and very notable coaches leaving or getting fired from high-profile schools, to the Cinderella stories that fell just short. The bowl season has brought us great match-ups in the past, and it seems to be that way again. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Matching two teams up that do not play each other often, to battle over a trophy and bragging rights in a warm location, is what makes bowl games worth watching. If you have not been paying much attention to the excitement, this year, here are my predictions for the major bowl games.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
