Bowl Predictions 2017: Week 1

And… here we go again! The first bowl predictions of the season are here! Over the next several weeks, I’ll be doing my best to foresee where 80 teams will play football in the last few weeks of the year.

For the first edition this year, I got an assist from Bill Callahan’s S&P+ stat profiles. This saves me a good bit of time when it comes to handicapping the teams, especially at this point in the year when there’s still a lot of football left to be played. And indeed, it shows in the predictions. I was also short several teams, but upsets late in the year tend to help out in that department. In other words, no need to panic (yet).

Essentially, it’s still too early to say what’s what. Nonetheless, all the bowl information is there and correct to the best of my ability, but the predictions? Just for fun at this point.
