5. Texas Bowl

The Texas Bowl to me should be real interesting to watch. Which defense will show up? Can Drew Lock and his 43 passing touchdowns light up a really solid Texas defense? Can the two headed monster at quarterback for Texas find any consistency? I think Missouri is way too hot for Texas, winning six straight and scoring at least 45 points in those six games.

4. Citrus Bowl

The Citrus Bowl will be fun just because of the match-up itself. Getting to watch LSU and Notre Dame is worth the price of admission. Both teams are looking for a springboard into the 2018 season. Will Notre Dame be able to run on the Tiger defense? Brandon Winbush will have to make plays in the passing game if the Irish want to win. I see Danny Etling and Derius Guice having big games for LSU.

3. Peach Bowl

The Peach Bowl is three for one reason and that’s because Scott Frost and the entire Central Florida staff is coaching the bowl game before departing for Nebraska. UCF has everything to play for, how excited is Auburn to be in this game? I think Gus Malzahn and the Tigers will show up and will use this game as preparation for 2018 where they should be preseason ranked in the top 10.
