IT’S almost time for the biggest college games of the season. Bowl season is well underway and the six upcoming major bowl games are guaranteed to be epic battles between some of college footballs finest, but who will win these prestigious matches?

Playstation Fiesta Bowl

#3 Ohio State vs. #2 Clemson
THIS game could very well be the best of the bunch. Two legendary coaches lead their team to battle and with a berth in the National Championship game on the line. Expect things to go down to the wire and for Deshaun Watson to deliver the Tigers a win.
Verdict: Clemson W

Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic

#8 Wisconsin vs. #15 Western Michigan
WESTERN Michigan has been one of the surprise stories of the season with the Broncos reeling off a 13-0 season so far. That streak will come to an end though at the hands of this dominant Wisconsin defense.
Verdict: Wisconsin W

Capital One Orange Bowl

#6 Michigan vs. #11 Florida State
PERHAPS the two best secondary’s in college football could shape this contest between the Wolverines and Seminoles. With plenty of playmakers on display this game is a marquee matchup, and Michigan should prevail thanks to their ability to stuff the run and cause headaches for Florida States offense.

Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

#4 Washington vs. #1 Alabama
ALABAMA are the best team in college football this season, earning their #1 seed. While Washington are a worthy opponent and deserve to be the #4 seed their reward is the buzzsaw defense the Crimson Tide has deployed numerous times this year. Good luck Huskies, your going to need it.
Verdict: Alabama W

Allstate Sugar Bowl

#14 Auburn vs. #7 Oklahoma
THERE aren’t many schools that can say they have two Heisman finalists in their starting offensive line-up, but thanks to star duo Baker Mayfield and Dede Westbrook, Oklahoma definitely can. They will cause problems for Auburn and ultimately help the Sooners get over the line.

Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual

#9 USC vs. #5 Penn State

THEY couldn’t get a playoff berth, but a Rose Bowl selection for #5 ranked Penn State is still a pretty good consolation prize. They square off against a red hot USC team who is virtually playing at home in this match. The Trojans have the edge in regards to talent on paper against Penn State and I think that talent will seem them prevail.
