Predicting the final score for every 2022 college football bowl game


College football always starts with loads of intrigue given the unknowns as well as nonconference teams facing off against each other. But bowl season always has similar intrigue.

Teams have to win six games to be bowl eligible, though there are a few exemptions, so we already know what most teams are. But with opt-outs, transfers, coaches leaving for other jobs, and such, as well as teams' will to win a final game, you never really know what you're going to get in the college football postseason.

Even so, we're taking a stab at what we think will happen in every single bowl game. Here are our predictions for each one.
