After weeks of Bowl projection input from readers all over the country, we have come to the end of the trail.
The challenge of predicting the winners of all 35 bowl games proved to be as difficult a task as can be imagined in college football.
Longtime readers such as Dan Boone and Zodiac each finished 17-18, while newcomer April Davis put on a great demonstration of knowledge as well, finishing 18-17.
April pointed readers in the right direction with her prediction of TCU over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.
Dan, well known for his eclectic input and insightful remarks, is a longtime contributor of culture and entertaining information to the B/R. He is always a must-read, whether it be an article or comment.
Zodiac is known for accusations of regional bias while proclaiming all of the teams on the West Coast are the nation's best units.
Alabama sportsman Tim Croley, consistently at the top of predicting in 2008 and 2009, put together another impressive run with 19 correct this year. Tim is an inspiring individual who has brought a special talent for writing to the B/R and is much appreciated.
For a second straight year Brandon Hamblen muscled his way into the upper echelon with his superb knowledge of the ACC, SEC and Big 10. He predicted 20 winners correctly in the bowl games.
Brandon maintained all season Boise State would fall in the round he called and the Broncos did lay an egg in their late season trip to Reno.
A shocking individual performance was turned in by Jake Nazar, a fellow who tirelessly promoted his Maryland Terrapins during the late season.
Jake predicted 21 of the 35 games accurately. What makes this so fantastic is he is only 11 years old! He writes so distinctly we thought he was some kind of European Count!
Donnie called seven games with only two incorrect. He lead with his head over his heart when he went against his Missouri Tigers in the Insight Bowl.
Similarly, Brandon Cavanaugh had to watch as his Nebraska Cornhuskers were subjected to the torture of a dreaded bowl rematch with Washington.
Kevin McGrady, so knowledgeable and interesting, was able to see the Auburn Tigers fulfill his wish of a national championship this season.
As for Doc Masters, he fell over a four leaf clover and ended up 22-13.
