The celebrity was quick
to point out that her
name, Rose Bohi, was
fan not spelled the same
ative way as the bowl game
in Pasadena. But we
figured: Who better to
pick the bowl games
than someone with
the name of the game
Michigan is playing
in? The 83-year-old
mother of 11 has lived
in North Dakota her
entire life, but her kids
and grandchildren are
spread out around
the country. Hbr two
oldest sons enlisted
in the Navy, which
fueled her decision to
pick the Midshipmen
in the Emerald
Bowl. She also has
grandchildren in Boise,
Hawaii, Colorado and
Texas - which helped
her reason through
some tough choices.
Trying desperately to
overtake Mattu, Burke
opposed the leader in
19 different games.

New Year brings a full slate of Big Ten bowl-game action

By H. Jose Bosch
Daily Sports Writer

It's the most wonderful time of the
year - 22 days, 28 bowls and one sore
rear end. The die-hards will take a sab-
batical from mid-December until the
morning of Jan. 5 - deserting friends,
family and personal hygiene. For some,
watching Michigan and the other BCS
bowls is more than enough. But why not
watch the five other Big Ten teams in
action?
CAPITOL ONE BOWL
No. 13 IowA (7-1, 9-2) vs. No. 11

LSU (6-2, 9-2) - JAN. 1, 1 P.M.,
ABC
LSU is riding a six-game winning
streak, while Iowa comes in having won
its last seven. This game should make both
offenses look weak, as the third-ranked
LSU and 10th-ranked Iowa defenses bat-
tle in muggy Central Florida. This will be
a low-scoring defensive skirmish, but the
Big Ten loves that kind of game.
Iowa 13, LSU 10
GAYLORD HOTELS Music CITY BOWL
ALABAMA (3-5, 6-5) vs. MINNESOTA
(3-5, 6-5) - DEC. 31, NOON, ESPN
After a 5-0 start, Minnesota has lost

five of its last six games. Alabama has
been a decent team, but is has struggled
to survive in the harsh environment of
the SEC. The Crimson Tide's defense
has been nothing short of amazing this
season, finishing the year at No. 2 in total
yards allowed. That will be a big prob-
lem for the running back combo of soph-
omore Laurence Maroney and junior
Marion Barber III. Rooooooooll Tide!
Alabama 30, Minnesota 9
MASTERCARD ALAMO BOWL
OKLAHOMA STATE (4-4, 7-4) vs. No.
22 OHIO STATE (4-4, 7-4) - DEC. 29,
8 P.M., ESPN

Ohio State matches up against
Oklahoma State in the "Battle of the
OSUs." The Cowboys are a better
team than their 7-4 record implies
- two of their losses came against in-
state rival No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 6
Texas. Expect the Buckeyes' defense
to try and force Oklahoma State to
use the passing game - No. 111 in
the nation. But the Cowboys won't
back down and should make this game
close. Put the game on the shoulders
of Lou Groza Award winner, senior
Mike Nugent
Ohio State 34, Oklahoma State 31

OUTBACK BOWL
No. 7 GEORGIA (6-2, 9-2) vs. No. 16
WISCONSIN (6-2, 9-2) - JAN. 1, 11
A.M., ESPN
Georgia senior quarterback David
Greene's numbers this season speak for
themselves - 2,244 yards, 18 touch-
downs and just two interceptions. The
Badgers just want to salvage a season
that looked promising until they choked
in back to back weeks against Michigan
State and Iowa. This game will probably
be like a home game for the Bulldogs, so
the atmosphere will definitely be against
Wisconsin.
Georgia 38, Wisconsin 12

VITALIS SUN BOWL
No. 24 ARIZONA STATE (5-3, 8-3) vs.
PURDUE (4-4, 7-4) - DECEMBER 31, 2
P.M., CBS
This game will feature more bombs
than Whoopi Goldberg's career. Ari-
zona State is No. 5 and Purdue is
No. 4 in passing offense. Purdue sig-
nal-caller Kyle Orton and Sun Devil
quarterback Andrew Walter are going
to have a field day in El Paso. Tell
grandpa to make sure his pacemaker
has fresh batteries, because this one
will be a thriller. The Big Ten gets the
nod in a shootout.
Purdue 52, Arizona State 42
