Who's going to win each bowl game? According to the CFN Confidence Picks (picks with 1 for the least confident selection and 34 for the most confident), B.J. Raji and Boston College should have the easiest time getting past Vanderbilt in the Music City Bowl. Check out all the CFN expert picks for the bowls.

CFN Staff Picks, Bowl Confidence

Here are the picks from the CFN writers along with Clucko the Chicken. Put down two feed dishes, one representing one team and one representing another and whichever dish the chicken goes to first is the team that's going to win. You'll do just as well. (Really, the pick is a coin flip. Don't laugh; Clucko won the 2000 Bowl Pool among 24 entrants.) You can get to the Expert Picks in the above dropdown under Predictions.

Here's the drill for the bowls. Everyone makes their picks, and then assigns a number from most to least confident against the spread. A 34 means most confident with the pick, 1 is least confident (Clucko's confidence picks were taken out of a hat to represent the element of random chance). The number next to the final pick is an overall confidence score of the picks added up (for example, Wake Forest 8+14+20-4-24 = WF (14)). The higher the number, the more confident the overall pick.

Fiu is Pete Fiutak, RC is Richard Cirminiello, MZ is Matthew Zemek, SS is Steve Silverman, and CL is Clucko
* means team will win, but won't cover
