2013-14 College Football Bowl Schedule Breakdown

The 2013-14 college football bowl schedule has been finalized and we wanted to provide a breakdown on the big match-ups that we get to watch during the holiday season this year. Bowl season gets underway on December 21st 2013 and runs until January 6th 2014, so there is plenty of action to bet on.

BCS Bowl Schedule Odds & Game Previews

You couldn’t ask for a much better match-up in the BCS Championship Game. Auburn (40.2 PPG – 13th) and Florida State (53 PPG – 2nd) are amongst the highest scoring teams in the nation. Auburn is led by dual-threat QB Nick Marshall and RB Tre Mason.

Auburn leads the country in rushing yards (335.7 RYPG), but they aren’t much of a threat through the air. The Seminoles are a pass heavy team (322 PYPG – 14th), but they also have a balanced offense. FSU will shutdown Auburn and cover the point spread.

Ohio State had a shot at making the BCS Championship Game, but they faltered against the Spartans last week (34-24). Clemson has two losses on the season and both came against teams that can play tough defense (Florida State & South Carolina).

Braxton Miller did all he could against the Spartans, but he wasn’t able to get it done. The Buckeyes defense has problems stopping the pass and Clemson is one of the best passing teams in the nation (329.3 PYPG – 12th). I’m betting Clemson on the money line.

Oklahoma is going to have a tough time in the Sugar Bowl against Alabama. The Sooners are a good rushing team (235.8 RYPG – 18th) and that’s exactly what they need to be to beat the Crimson Tide. You have to keep the Bama offense on the sidelines to beat them.

I’m sure Saban will have his team ready, but after a heartbreaking loss to Auburn it may be tough to get up for this game. Oklahoma would love nothing more than to win this game and I think they come out hungry, take an early lead and hang on to cover.

Baylor has an electrifying offense that ranks #5 in passing yards (359.3 PYPG) and #12 in rushing yards (265.2 RYPG). They’ve scored more points than any other team (53.3 PPG), but the last few weeks the Bears offense has had some trouble moving the football.

I think this spread was set too high and I expect it to drop, so jump on it now. UCF has a solid defense that allows 19.6 PPG (13th) and the offense has some playmakers as well. UCF beat Louisville and only lost by 3 against South Carolina this year. Take UFC to cover.

Michigan State suffered an early season loss to the Fighting Irish (17-13), but they’ve swept the rest of their schedule since. Stanford has to be slightly disappointed with their two losses (Utah & USC), as if they won those two games they’d be playing for a BCS title.

This game features two great defenses. Stanford allows 18.6 PPG (10th) while the Spartans allow 12.7 PPG (4th). Expect this to be one of the better match-ups during bowl season. It may not be high scoring, but these two teams are really good. I like MSU plus the pts.

Rest of the College Football Bowl Games

Bowl season is the best time of the year in college football. During the holidays there is plenty of action to watch. This year some of the non-BCS bowls look very interesting as well. I can’t wait to watch a few games including Oklahoma State vs. Missouri.

Texas vs. Oregon and Virginia Tech vs. UCLA both look like must-watch games as well. I’m pleased with the bowl schedule and there are more than a handful of great games to watch over the holidays. I’ve posted the entire schedule along with the latest odds below.
