Christmas, Hanukkah, it’s all here! But for some college football fans, Santa is delivering early gifts beginning December 20th. I thought it would be fun to see how many games i can predict correctly, so why not share it with the internet? 

The bowl period lasts from the 20th all the way up to the National Championship. As an editor, I will use all my sports knowledge to predict every winner of each bowl game. The last time I made predictions was in my Thanksgiving Football article, in which I predicted all games correctly. So entering the bowl season 3-0 should give me some momentum.
