Bo-files in History: Year 5

Look Bo Pelini lifted Nebraska out of the Bill Callahan era (while coaching up his players in his first couple seasons in Lincoln) so Husker Nation must be greatful for that and thank him. The title is Bo-files in history (profiles in history is the spoof for those needing it spelled out) as I’ve been putting off looking at the Mark “Bo” Pelini years as head Husker. This era in Cornhusker football started in 2008 even though technically it started with the 2003 Alamo Bowl which I’ll count in what’s about to be totaled up.

4Quarters Weekly College Pick’em: Jerry and Mike Go Bowling! (Dec. 26 Little Caesars Bowl)

Jerry and I couldn’t have been any more wrong with Monday’s Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl when SMU destroyed Fresno State on Christmas Eve. Here’s hoping that we get back on track with tonight’s Pizza Pizza Bowl at Ford Field.

Again, instead of giving you each bowl game all at once we’ll give you are picks in a daily dose of them.

Wednesday – December 26, 2012
Little Caesars Bowl (Detroit, Michigan): Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (7-5, 4-4 Sun Belt) v. Central Michigan Chippewas (6-6, 4-4 MAC), 6:30 pm/ESPN

M – Somewhere Louisiana Tech is dishearted that 6-6 Central Michigan is bowling while they aren’t. CMU will be the de-facto home team but let’s face it Western Kentucky is the better team and will win the game. Sun Belt teams have done alright in this game recently which is another reason why I’m going with the Hilltoppers. The Pick: Western Kentucky 28 Central Michigan 14
J – Neither team all that impressive with WKU finishing 5th in the Sun Belt and the Chippewas 4th, each team with 32-31 wins over BCS bottom feeders (Kentucky for the Hilltoppers and Iowa for Central Michigan). The difference between these teams is that the Hilltoppers do a slightly better job of getting off the field as Central Michigan gives up over 33 points per game. More importantly, the Hilltoppers need to win just so Bobby Petrino doesn’t get any thoughts of bolting for Mount Pleasant. The Pick: Western Kentucky 37 Central Michigan 24

Rankings are from BcS Standings

Current Bowl Record: Mike (3-4), Jerry (4-3)
Regular Season Total: Jerry (91-49), Mike (91-49)
