    South Florida vs. South Carolina

Legion Field, Birmingham, AL
2:00 pm ET

South Florida flies under the radar a bit while heading into this bowl season with a stellar 10-2 record. Their only 2 losses came at the hands of Florida State (9-3) and Temple (10-3). South Florida has scored 35 points or more in 10 of 12 games this season. Granted the SEC is still considered vastly superior from top to bottom than the AAC. Nevertheless, the disparity gap between the two has narrowed considerably in 2016.

South Carolina went 6-6 during regular season action, and their only victory over a FBS opponent with a winning record came in an upset of Tennessee. The Gamecocks have averaged only 19.2 points scored and 336.4 yards of total offense per game in 2016.

This point spread speaks volumes, especially when considering we have a “Power 5 Conference” team as a sizable bowl underdog versus an AAC opponent. I’m going with the proverbial chalk for one of my college football picks.

Oklahoma State vs Colorado

Alamodome, San Antonio, TX
9:00 pm ET

Colorado played in its first ever PAC-12 Championship game against #4 Washington during its last outing. Nevertheless, the Buffaloes didn’t acquit themselves very well at, and were blown out 41-10. Colorado held out hopes of being invited to the Rose Bowl, but the committee opted for USC instead. This is a Colorado football program which had gone a combined 14-48 from the start of 2011 through 2015. It’s not like they’ve been used to the degree of success attained in 2016, and the disappointment from the conference title game loss, and Ross Bowl snub, most likely has shaken their confidence.

As opposed to Colorado, Oklahoma State has become accustomed to success and has gone 102-50 (.671) during the past 13 seasons under current head coach Mike Gundy. As a matter of fact, the Cowboys are an even more impressive 92-38 (.708) during the past 11 years, and each one of those campaigns will and have ended with a bowl appearance.
