Bowl Game Picks: Week Two Matchups

Week one of the bowl games are in the books and now it is time to check out week two. To keep in line with last week's bowl picks we will once again peruse theYahoo! Sports' College Bowl Pick'Em to see who is picking what team to win this week. The first bowl game this week is Tuesday night's matchup in the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl where the Southern MIss Golden Eagles take on Louisville Cardinal on Tuesday night, Dec. 21st. Louisville is favored to win by 57 percent to 43 percent over the Golden Eagles.

The Mountain West has two games this week with Utah facing off against Boise State in the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl this Wednesday Dec. 23rd and then San Diego State going up against Navy in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl the following night Dec. 24th. Utah is riding a nine game bowl winning streakThis is San Diego State's first bowl game since 1998.

Last week, Boise State was a heavy 97 percent favorite over Utah, but since last week a whopping one percent has moved toward Utah and making Boise State a 96 percent favorite to win.

The San Diego State vs. Navy contest has also swung toward the Aztecs from last week where Navy was favored 59-41 to now the gap has closed to Navy still being the team of choice, but at 57-43.

The final game of the week comes Christmas Eve which is the Hawai'i Bowl where the home team Hawai'i takes on Tulsa in what should be a passing frenzy. Currently, Yahoo has Hawai'i as the team of choice by 86 percent to 14 percent. That is not a surprise since this is a home game for Hawai'i.
