So, as we all enjoy the day after Christmas by digesting the massive quantities of food we ate, let us look forward to the coming bowl games of the last weekend in 2008.

First up, the Central Michigan Chippewas face off against the Florida Atlantic Owls. In this Sun Belt-MAC tilt, expect the Chippewas to put this away in the fourth, with Dan Lefevour running for 100 and passing for 250. Score: 44-28 CMU.

For Saturday's slate, the first up is West Virgina versus the Tarheels of North Carolina. Expect a close one here, with WVU pulling away late and Pat White leaving college a winner. Score: 28 - 21 WVU.

Florida St. takes on Wisconsin in the Champ Sports Bowl. Look for QB play to be the difference in a game between teams that favor the run. Florida St. throws to victory in a low-scoring game. Score: 13-10 FSU.

In the Emerald Bowl, the 'Canes to turn a two-bowl skid into a three-bowl skid against the Cal Bears, led by Jahvid Best. Cal may be banged up, but they will have experience at QB (Nate Longshore), and all he will have to do is manage the game and hand the ball off, where as Miami is missing Marve and has a run defense that went MIA late in the season. Score: 31-10 Cal.
