BOWL SEASON PREVIEW: Moral Victory! rankings and predictions

Five days till the bowls start. Thought we'd go ahead and tell you who we're picking, as well as group the bowls together in case you're looking for recommendations as to which ones are actually worth watching.

As for our Music City Bowl prediction, you'll just have to wait until we get closer to New Year's Eve for that one. We want to go out on a limb and pick the Commodores, but they don't win when we pick ’em to win and they win when we don't pick ’em to win. So we're considering picking them to lose so they'll win. But for now, we'll just rate that game an "Old-Fashioned Slobber-Knocker."
