2011-12 Bowl Pick ‘Em: Brendan’s non-Big Ten/non-BCS picks

Posted on 16. Dec, 2011 by in Iowa Football


By Brendan Stiles

Below is a list of my predictions for every bowl game that is not a BCS game and does not feature a Big Ten team. I will reveal my selections during our final “Talkin’ Hawks” podcast for those 13 particular bowl games. “Talkin’ Hawks” will be posted sometime next week before Christmas for your listening pleasure.

A reminder that you can participate in our Bowl Pick ‘Em. All you have to do is submit your picks for all 35 bowl games and include a score with your Insight Bowl prediction between now and 12:59 p.m. Central on Dec. 17 (i.e. one minute before the New Mexico Bowl kicks off). The Insight Bowl picks will be used to break any ties that may exist by the end of bowl season. The Bowl Pick ‘Em is free to play, and there will be prizes for those who win.

Also be sure to check out in the final days leading up to the 2011 Insight Bowl between Iowa and No. 19 Oklahoma as we provide coverage from Tempe, Ariz.
