2014-15 Bowl Season: Results are in! #cfbplayoff #cfbchampionship #bowlmania

The 2014-15 Bowl season has come to an end, which I guess means the actual season has come to an end, but let’s focus on bowl season for now.  As you know, the majority of pickers went with the 6-point-underdog Buckeyes to beat Oregon, but how about the rest of the games?  We will start off by crowning the 2014-15 Bowl Season champion.  Coming in with a record of 25-14 is 2012-13 Bowl Season champion, and 2013-14 Bowl Season co-champion, Robert Smith.  That is three years in a row winning or splitting the bowl season championship, so we are certainly impressed.  Here he is at our awards ceremony claiming his award!

Robert Smith: 2014-15 Bowl Champion!

2014-15 College Football Championship picks! #cfbplayoff #cfbchampionship #ohiostate #oregonducks

It seems like yesterday we were just starting this 2014-15 season of college football, and yet here we are with one game left.  The first ever FBS college football playoff champion will be crowned in Arlington, Tx Monday night in the matchup between Oregon and Ohio State.  Along with a game of this magnitude comes more picks than you could possibly handle (or at least a lot).  Anyone and everyone ESPN can trot out there on one of their networks wants to get a pick in on this game, so we will be tracking them and updating this post with the most up to date picks available.

Our current group of picks from our experts are standing at 28 to 20 in favor of the UNDERDOG Ohio State, including a final parting shot from Brady Hoke who predicted “Ohio” to beat Oregon Monday night.  Check back over the next 48 hours leading up to the game for the latest updates to see who your favorite (or most hated) personality picked in the biggest game in college football history.
