2018-19 Bowl Season: Picks are graded; results are in!

The 2018-19 college football season is in the books.  Here are the bowl grades to tie you over until we determine our yearly champion.  Obviously not everyone qualifies for our made-up bowl competition, so our panel of scientists has made the following determinations.

Our 2018-19 bowl season will award a straight-up champion and a gambling champion since it is hard to separate the two.  Our straight-up picking champion for this bowl season is actually a tie.  @GamedayJen and Mark Schlabach both went 26-15 on the bowl picks this year and topped all of our experts who picked a full slate of games.  Our ATS gambling champion is going to be Dusty Dvoracek at 9-3 ATS.  Nobody picked the full slate of games ATS, but nobody really had a good bowl season picking ATS, so he wins.

Congratulations to all of our competitors this year.
