College Football Bowl Picks and ESPN Bowl Mania Group Invitation


With last night’s revelation and finalization of the bowl matchups, ESPN’s Bowl Mania game is officially off and running. There are an incredible 35 bowl games this year starting with the New Mexico Bowl in just a few weeks (12/15) and going all the way through the National Championship game, January 7th.

For each game I’ll be posting my pick and analysis in the coming weeks right here on Fantasy CPR. If you’re looking for a fun group to join and test your knowledge in, come on over and join our Fantasy CPR group. Get in the action now:
http://games.espn.go.com/college-bowl-mania/en/group?groupID=6014
On mobile: http://games.espn.go.com/college-bowl-mania/en/m/group?groupID=6014

Joining and playing is free and open to anyone with their ESPN ID. It’s based on a confidence ranking system which means putting more points on picks you have more confidence in. Feel free to invite anyone to the group and we’ll see who can best predict the impossible-to-predict bowl season where college football is sure to offer us plenty of thrills and upsets over the next month.

I’ll have my initial picks and rankings up later this week and star the detailed analysis for each game next week most likely. Get ready for some bowling!! (that is, provided your AD didn’t turn down a bid leaving you stranded without a bowl to play in like Louisiana Tech).
