(guest pickers 43-27, 3-2)

: ASU, 34-17. Coupled with Auburn victory, Gus Malzahn will have a 2-0 bowl season.
Rose

Mark Carter, Editor, InnovateArkansas.org
(43-27, 3-2)
Cotton
: Hogs, 41-28. I'm dreaming of a top 10 (if not 5?) start to 2012.
GoDaddy.com
: ASU, 41-38. Hard to pick against the Wolves right now, transition be darned.
Rose
: Wisconsin, 30-24. Midwestern beef cows against Pacific seals. How bad will Oregon's unis be for this one? The over/under is "very, very bad."
Fiesta
: Okie State, 42-31. Statement game for Pokes, whose fans will own the stands.
Sugar
: Michigan, 27-14. Blah, humbug.
Orange
: Clemson, 34-24. WVU has enjoyed its last kiddie ride to a gimme conference title and BCS berth.
BCS title game
: Alabama, 17-14. But I'm not very confident in this pick.

Jim Harris, Columnist, ArkansasSports360.com
(43-27, 3-2)
Cotton
: K-State, 38-31. This Arkansas team should win, but has never seemed comfortable away from home.
GoDaddy.com
: Northern Illinois, 25-20. Too much transition for ASU to be focused.
Rose
: Oregon, 35-24. Speed kills the Big Ten.
Fiesta
: Okie State, 49-31. Cowboys out to prove something.
Sugar
: Michigan, 38-17. Hokies were most overrated team in the country.
Orange
: Clemson, 45-42. Should be as exciting as any BCS game.
BCS title game
: LSU, 17-10. Tigers have a few more weapons than Tide and love the Dome.
