So the college football season is creeping towards bowl season. Just because the Huskers aren't competing in a bowl game doesn't mean we can't get in on the postseason festivities.
There are 41 bowl games this season, including the College Football Playoff semifinals and the National Championship. Can you predict them all? Better yet, can you beat the Hail Varsity staff?
Join the Hail Varsity Bowl Mania group on ESPN's Bowl Mania fantasy game by clicking here, fill out your picks straight up and then sit back and enjoy the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl.
It's also a good time to check in on some of Nebraska's opponents from this season. Nine of them are going bowling. Or you can check out new Huskers' head coach Scott Frost coach his final game for Central Florida when the tenth-ranked Knights face seventh-ranked Auburn on Jan. 1 in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.
And in case you were following along this season with the staff's Friday Forecast picks, here are the final standings. Congrats to Brandon Vogel on winning the season.
- Brandon Vogel, 430 points
- Jacob Padilla, 420 points
- Greg Smith, 395 points
- Derek Peterson, 390 points
Derek is a newbie on the Hail Varsity staff covering Husker athletics. In college, he was best known as ‘that guy from Twitter.’ He has covered a Sugar Bowl, a tennis national championship and almost everything in between (except an NCAA men’s basketball tournament game… *tears*). In his spare time, he can be found arguing with literally anyone about sports.
