Couple intriguing things here:

  1. The Orange Bowl against the Orange? Who would’ve thought, even after just one week, that this pick was even a possibility?
  2. Oregon-Penn State definitely is a curious selection, especially with Penn State’s late-game collapses against USC, MSU, and Ohio State in the last few years, and the way the Ducks choked away a win against Auburn this past weekend.
  3. I’m here for a matchup against Tommy and JoeMo-just maybe not in the Gator Bowl.
