The Bowl Season continues tonight with Southern Miss and Louisville in the Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl. Below is a quick preview of the game with my pick at the end. Along with my pick, I will post the favorite and flip a coin for the game. Whichever method has the most points at the end of Bowl Season, I will use for next year's games.
Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl, Southern Miss (8-4, 5-3 in C-USA) vs Louisville (6-6, 3-4 in the Big East)
Why You Should Watch: To find out what a "Beef O Brady" is. Actually, it's a Family Sports Bar, so there goes that reason. Also, it's interesting to check in on another of the Beavers' opponents. Louisville was one of two bowl teams Oregon St. defeated, 35-28 back on Sept. 18, in the Beavers' home opener.
Breakdown: Both teams were even in the five categories I use for picking bowl games, so I decided to just go with my gut. Even though Louisville has had a great year, I've got a hunch that Southern Miss pulls this one out. Sometimes you've just got to rely on hunches.
