South Carolina Gamecocks, and SEC Bowl Picks


The SEC has nine teams bowling this holiday season, including the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Which teams will come out on top and bring the conference the glory it’s become accustom to?

Well…

South Carolina will beat Michigan. We’ll get into the how’s, why’s, x’s and o’s as the game draws closer, but the long and short of the matter is South Carolina’s defense, especially Jadeveon Clowney, against Michigan’s offense.

Ole Miss will beat Pitt. Why? Because Pitt is a team that once looked like it would lose 12 games this year. Ole Miss has at least been consistent, for the most part, this year.

Texas A&M will beat Oklahoma, because the legend of Johnny Football will grow unadulterated despite the departure of A&M’s offensive coordinator. This might be the best game out of all the SEC Bowls (included the national title game).

Florida will crush Louisville, because the last time Florida played a Big East team in the Sugar bowl, that’s what happened.

Nebraska will beat Georgia. No I’m not bitter. Georgia did what Georgia did, and they ended up with just as many losses as South Carolina before bowl season. I just don’t think Georgia is that good, and Nebraska is no slouch.

Northwestern will beat Mississippi State, because Miss St. is overrated.

You know what? Give me Georgia over Nebraska, now. There’s no way the Big 10 is going to have a winning record against the SEC in bowl games this year.

Vanderbilt will beatNC State, because Vandy is too good to be playing in the Music City Bowl, and NC State is barely good enough to be playing in that game.

LSU is going to obliterate Clemson, because the Tigers have proven they’re not good enough to compete with the SEC this year. For God’s sake, they almost lost to Auburn at the beginning of the year. Yes, that Auburn.

Alabama will beat Notre Dame. Unless Alabama’s offense can’t score at all, the Crimson Tide will roll in this one. Notre Dame is good, but not good enough.
