2019-20 Bowl Season: Greg McElroy’s #BowlMania BIG BOARD!!!

Here is the official BIG BOARD from Greg McElroy on this year’s Bowl Mania Special.  Please note Greg McElroy is calling the Alabama/Michigan game and the Buffalo/Charlotte game.  He is not allowed to make a pick on those games, so Kevin Negandhi made those picks for him.  Those two picks are not counted in McElroy’s official record.

2017-18 Bowl Season: #BOWLMANIA Picks from Greg McElroy!

Welcome back everyone.  It is the most wonderful time of the year, which of course means bowl season.  We will be bringing you more bowl coverage than ever this year, and there’s no better way to get started than the official BIG BOARD PICKS from ESPN’S Bowl Mania Special.  I think it started with Jesse Palmer about a decade ago, then Todd McShay took over for many years, only to be followed by Danny Kanell.  This year the responsibility has fallen to up-and-coming star Greg McElroy and here are the official picks.  Please note pick 17 is from Chris Cotter because McElroy will be calling that game, and thus not making a pick.  Enjoy.
