Doc’s 2008 Champs Sports Bowl Picks

When Doc’s Sports releases one of their bowl picks, you can bet that people across the country are paying attention.  This is his 38th year of breaking down the college bowl odds and he seems to be getting better and better as each season passes. Let’s take a look at his thoughts on the 2008 Champs Sports Bowl and why he liked the Seminoles to roll the Badgers.

5 Unit Play. #10 Take Florida State Seminoles over Wisconsin Badgers (Champs Sports Bowl, Saturday 4:30 pm ESPN) These are two of the most disappointing teams are set to do battle at the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando. The Seminoles should have a major edge in support, as their fan base is within driving distance. Early results from Wisconsin indicate weak ticket sales since Wisconsin has been in Florida five straight years and this is by far the worst team they have brought down here. The Badgers have a run only offense and expect the Noles to be able to shut them down and force QB Sherer to beat them with his arm. That is something he has not done this year very often, especially on the road. Wisconsin cannot wait for this season to end and Florida State always has Coach Bowden to play for, as he is locked in a tight battle for most wins against Joe Paterno. Florida State has the athletes and team speed to dominate Wisconsin and they will salvage their season with a dominating performance. Florida State 28, Wisconsin 17.
