New Year's Eve Bowl Games: N.C. State vs. Vanderbilt, USC vs. Georgia Tech, Iowa State vs. Tulsa

Music City Bowl [N.C. State vs. Vanderbilt] Reaching this bowl game earned James Franklin a contract extension and got Tom O’Brien fired. N.C. State relies on a prolific, but inefficient passing attack. Vanderbilt has a Top 5 pass defense and continuity. Anchor Down. Pick: Vanderbilt [-7]

Sun Bowl [USC vs. Georgia Tech] Go 7-5 in the Big Ten, you play in Florida on New Year’s Day. Go 7-5 in the Pac 12? You spend New Years Eve being toasted by El Paso. Matt Barkley’s torment has ended. USC has handled its disappointing fate SC-style. The Trojans have struggled in 2012, against anything resembling a power or unorthodox rushing attack. Pick: Georgia Tech [+7.5]

Liberty Bowl [Iowa State vs. Tulsa] We are so proud of Paul Rhoads for sticking with Iowa State, but we have errands to run. Pick: Iowa State [-2]

Bowl Record ATS: 13-6
