Kirk of SB Nation maintains his Orange Bowl pick, but changes the opponent to Florida State. The last time Penn State played FSU, things went pretty well...

Jerry Palm stays with the Cotton Bowl and San Diego State-otherwise known as the Fighting Donnel Pumphreys. The Aztecs are 9-1, and face Wyoming next week.

As for Sporting News this week, Bill Bender goes with the Broncos and the Cotton Bowl. Western Michigan is still undefeated, and will not only play Buffalo, but will also host College Gameday!

Fox Sports’ Mandel believes Penn State is headed back to the Rose Bowl for the first time since Daryll Clark was the quarterback against Fumble McRear himself, Mark Sanchez. The Cougars are 8-2, and will face Colorado on Saturday.

Bonus pick: NBC Sports projects Penn State to play Boise State in the Cotton Bowl.
