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), Matt Barkley and USC should have the easiest time winnning their bowl. Check out all the CFN expert picks for the bowls.


CFN 2009-2010 Bowl Picks

- 2008-2009 CFN Staff Bowl Picks
- 2007-2008 CFN Staff Bowl Picks 
- 2006-2007 CFN Staff Bowl Picks

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 a 2000 Bowl Pool among 24 entrants.) 

Here's the drill for the bowls. Everyone makes their picks, and then assigns a number from most to least confident both against the spread and straight up. 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, for Fresno State being picked straight up to beat Wyoming, it's 26+33+1+33-31 = 62. The higher the number, the more confident the overall pick.

The top row of numbers is the confidence straight up, while the bottom row are the confidence numbers against the spread.

Fiu is Pete Fiutak, Rich is Richard Cirminiello, Matt is Matthew Zemek, Michael is Michael Bradley, and Clucko is Clucko.
* means team will win, but won't cover
