2015-16 Bowl Season: COLE’S BIG BOWL BOARD! #cfb #cfbplayoff

The time has arrived for Cole’s annual BIG BOWL BOARD!  This is our annual collection of any and all bowl picks I can get my hands on, and it is still a work in progress.  I’ll be updating throughout this week and more as the bowl season progresses leading up to the championship game.  As always, with each pick below I list when and where it came from, so if you heard that person pick differently more recently, then go with the more recent pick.  The board is incomplete as of this moment, so check back over the next few days to see the latest updates for all of your bowl maniacs.
