Iowa vs. Missouri

Morehouse — “I don’t think a football is a very good present.” — Ralphie from “A Christmas Story.” Missouri 34, Iowa 28

Hlas — If you don’t like this pick, I’ll welcome your complaints all day. My phone number is 555-5555. Missouri 27, Iowa 24

Pugliese — If Iowa could not win when there was something on the line late in the season, how do you expect the Hawkeyes to be up for a meaningless — yes I said meaningless — bowl game? Missouri 28, Iowa 14

Campbell — The last time these two states battled each other it was the Honey War. Google it. Iowa 32, Missouri 31

Malicki — Although I chose Missouri here, I’ll admit Iowa has better K-12 education, sweet corn, and local news. Missouri 24, Iowa 21

Brooks — Iowa’s mental attitude will be us against the world and they’ll want to show what a good football team they are. Hawks will try to get back to the level of play they had against Michigan State. And they will. Iowa 24, Missouri 21

Michigan State vs. Alabama

Morehouse — NOTAFINGA!” — The Old Man from “A Christmas Story.” Alabama 21, Michigan State 10

Hlas — Iowa and Alabama both beat Penn State by the score of 24-3. Since Iowa beat Michigan State 37-6. Alabama 37, Michigan State 6

Pugliese — Michigan State should come into this game with a huge chip on its shoulder pads because Orlando is a far cry from Pasadena. Michigan State 24, Alabama 20

Campbell — When Nick Saban coached at MSU, he handed Kirk Ferentz his first Big Ten loss. It was ugly and it has nothing to do with this game. Michigan State 25, Alabama 24

Malicki — Apparently I’m the only person in America who didn’t know about the psychotic Crimson Tide thing. I thought it was just a movie. Roll Tide! Alabama 28, Michigan State 17

Brooks — Alabama has better and tougher players. I expect Alabama to put a great deal of pressure on the QB and Michigan State has not shown a steady running game. Alabama 19, Michigan State 16

Wisconsin vs. TCU

Morehouse — “I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle!” — Ralphie. Wisconsin 48, TCU 14

Hlas — Texas Christian has quite a nice football team. I hate to admit that, being a graduate of Texas Heathen. Wisconsin 31, TCU 21

Pugliese — Wisconsin was playing as well as anyone in the country down the stretch. Of course, that stretch was a month ago. Wisconsin 31, TCU 28

Campbell — The Badgers will fall well short of 80, or even 70 points in this one. Also, does TCU know about the fake punt? Wisconsin 27, TCU 26

Malicki — I look better in red. Purple is a close second. ‘Nuff said. Wisconsin 35, TCU 27

Brooks — I do believe in TCU and the Horned Frogs’ excellent team. But the Badgers have the equipment in a power, straight-ahead running game to negate TCU’s defensive speed. After all, Badgers never lose a Rose Bowl game. Wisconsin 21, TCU 20

Auburn vs. Oregon

Morehouse — “Only I didn’t say ‘Fudge.’” — Ralphie as an adult. Oregon 35, Auburn 24

Hlas — That Iowa-Missouri game starts at 9 tonight, Central time. So be sure to get in a long nap at work today. Auburn 56, Oregon 49

Pugliese — If you had told me these two teams would be playing for the national title back in August, I’d have told you Iowa was going to win only 7 football games this season. Auburn 35, Oregon 31

Campbell — Hlas will warm up for this one by watching the Papajohns.com Bowl on the 8th and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl on the 9th. When will it end? Oregon 77, Auburn 55

Malicki — Fun fact to impress your sports savvy friends: “War Eagle” is the battle cry for Auburn friends; the mascot is a Tiger. My mascot is a BlackBerry and my battle cry is “Mommy’s tired.” Oregon 45, Auburn 42

Brooks — If the Heisman Trophy winner is that good, Gene Chizik’s unbeaten year should end with a national championship. If not, those guys in the funny uni’s will win. But I’m picking Auburn. Auburn 24, Oregon 21

Ohio State vs. Arkansas

Morehouse — “You used up all the glue on purpose!” — The Old Man. Ohio State 35, Arkansas 31

Hlas — Woo. Pig. Sooey. Whatever. Ohio State 35, Arkansas 33

Pugliese — Remember when the Big Ten couldn’t beat an SEC team? Ohio State 35, Arkansas 17

Campbell — For those of you watching the MAACO bowl, that stands for: Malicki Actually Ate Crispy Onions Bowl. It was a must see. Ohio State 28. Arkansas 27

Malicki — My kids think the Sugar Bowl involves sweet treats. I bet their disappointment will rival the first time we played Candy Land. Ohio State 21, Arkansas 17

Brooks — Ohio State usually at its best in big bowl games. And the Sugar Bowl is just that. Also, Pryor wants to show the country that he deserved Heisman consideration. Ohio State 30, Arkansas 27
