Central Michigan vs. San Diego State (NCAAF) - 2:00 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -153 San Diego State Rating: 9* Mike's 1st CFB Bowler Of The Season (WIN) Let's jet out of the gate here with a big "W" as we roll with a play on an excellent defensive team that wins SU. I feel the Aztecs should be able to get some turnovers out of a Chippewas' squad that's lost 23 fumbles & failed in the big MAC Championship 26-21 versus Miami (Ohio). SD State QB Ryan Agnew rested for their regular season finale 7 should be eager to go here. Kudos to HC Jim McElwain for the job he did this season turning a 1-11 SU team into a 8-5 one. However, look for the CMU offense to episodes of sputter versus DC Zach Arnett's confusing 3-3-5 defensive scheme. LB Kyahava Tezino spearheads the defense with 96 tackles on a "D" that's ranks 4th in scoring defense @ 12.8 PPG. Let's go to Dreamstyle Stadium in Albuquerque for the New Mexico Bowl to play the SAN DIEGO STATE AZTECS as my 9* 1st Bowler Of The Season! SMU vs. Florida Atlantic (NCAAF) - 3:30 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 8/-109 Florida Atlantic Rating: 8* Mike's Home Sweet Home Roadie (WIN) There's 2 ways of looking @ this game after FAU HC Lane Kiffin bolted for Ole Miss. The inside track says the players wanted interim HC/DC Glenn Spencer to become their new HC. I say those players play HARD for Spencer despite knowing that new HC Willie Taggert takes over next season. These same Owls are 3-0 SU & ATS in bowl games & take on a team that's a no-show 1-8 ATS in their final 3 games of the season these past few seasons. There's not much to say about going up against an S.M.U. defense ranked 102nd but being favored by this much in a true road bowl game. I feel that the Mustangs' BIGGEST win this season over a bowl team was Arkansas State speaks louder than words -- "Soft Schedule". Let's gladly go down to FAU stadium in Boca Raton for the Boca Raton Bowl & grab the FLORIDA ATLANTIC OWLS (buying to + 10 1/2) as my Home Sweet Home Roadie! Marshall vs. Central Florida (NCAAF) - 2:30 PM EST Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: 15/-105 Marshall Rating: 8* Mike's College Bowl Public Missed Perception Play (LOSS) it's easy to say the UCF Golden Knights will cruise here. These are familiar with each other & are playing on a grass field. I prefer HC Doc Holliday's (out of the Urban Meyer system) unit who stresses defense & time of possession with a punishing ground game over the pass-heavy UCF team that features a freshman QB in Dillon Gabriel. The Herd is making their 4th appearance in this area & Holliday uses this bowl (state of Florida) as a recruiting tool (30 on current roster). They'll be the MORE excited team! Let's go to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa for the Gasparilla Bowl to play the MARSHALL THUNDERING HERD (buying to a key + 17 1/2) as my College Bowl Public Missed Perception Play! Mike Handzelek's 2019-20 College Bowl Record: 2-1 for 67% Mike Handzelek's 2019-20 CFB Overall Seasonal Record: 40-33 for 55%
