Has an ACC/SEC matchup ever turned out well for the ACC (at least in football)? Last year's national champions basically ran out of luck this year and ran into the LSU/Alabama buzzsaw. Throw in losses to Arkansas, Georgia, and Clemson (wait, what?) and you've got a good Auburn team that simply got overwhelmed -- or was on the receiving end of karmic payback for last year. The Cavaliers appear to be a team on the way up, but TFG says they really haven't improved their station too much over last year; they've only climbed 11 spots in the rankings since the end of the 2010 season. At first glance this might appear to be a matchup of two well-matched, middle-of-the-pack BCS schools, but in reality this one won't end well for the Cavaliers. Auburn 35, Virginia 29 (71.1%); 165 plays.

It's hard to argue with Justin's summary. Auburn holds nearly a touchdown per hundred play advantage over Virginia on the offensive side of the ball. Unfortunately, the 11.8 +/- 6.5 PPH Cavalier defense is nearly even with Auburn's 10.0 +/- 12.3 PPH defense. Maybe Gus Malzahn's departure for Arkansas State will result in reduced efficiency, but that looks like Virginia's best bet at winning this game. RBA says Auburn, 31-20, with 62.0% confidence.

We've covered Northwestern as the luckiest team in FBS before, but it sure seems likes Texas A&M is the most unlucky team in modern memory. The Aggies led Oklahoma State by 17, Arkansas by 18, Missouri by 11, Kansas State by 10, and Texas by 13 and managed to lose all of them. Yes, ladies and gents, the Aggies could have been 11-1 if they hadn't blown big leads. Unlike all those RBA top 30 opponents, Northwestern is just a lucky middle-of-the-pack team. Their 21.6 +/- 9.5 PPH offense isn't much, and their 5.7 +/- 20.8 PPH defense lets them down against top competition. Really, this game is the Aggies' to lose. Their 33.5 +/- 21.9 PPH offense should be more than sufficient, provided their equally flaky (but superior) 1.3 +/- 21.4 PPH defense doesn't perform too badly. RBA considers this game the second most certain victory of the bowl season, 35-27, in favor of Texas A&M with 78.9% confidence.

Northwestern is lucky. Very lucky. And they've done it again this year; according to TFG, the Wildcats should have won about 4.1 games this year, and here they are with 5 wins (they were even 73 seconds away from having 6 wins). A&M, on the other hand, is going to need all the luck they can get as they wander into the SEC next year. Normally when you've got a losing record in the Big XII, jumping ship to the strongest conference in FBS isn't considered the wisest career move, but the Aggies are going to give it a shot. The good news for A&M is that their defense isn't nearly as bad as the raw stats would indicate, since only Oregon plays at a faster clip. They should try and savor this victory, though, as all signs indicate that playing fast in the SEC really just translates into spotting LSU and Alabama a few early touchdowns. Until then, Happy New Year! Texas A&M 37, Northwestern 30 (75.7%); 178 plays.

We're starting to get into not-horrible territory here. Both teams are the equivalent of middle-to-lower tier BCS conference teams, they just happen to play in the MAC and the WAC. The main shortcoming for both teams is defense, or a lack thereof. Both teams are on an upswing, though it's a tenuous one; Utah State hasn't won a game by more than a touchdown since early October, and while Ohio does have some decent wins, they've been a bit liberal in allowing points. Between the iffy defenses and fast-ish pace, this should be a high-scoring affair in which the Bobcats eek out a win. Ohio 36, Utah St. 35 (55.0%); 170 plays.

Neither team is particularly strong on either side of the ball, but they're certainly consistent. Offensively, these teams are virtually identical. The Bobcat offensive efficiency is 19.6 +/- 6.3 PPH, whereas the Aggie offensive efficiency is 19.5 +/- 5.8 PPH. The game is likely to be decided when Ohio is on defense. The Bobcat defense is a superior 11.1 +/- 11.9 PPH, but Utah State is more consistent at 14.6 +/- 7.3 PPH. The difference in efficiency tips the scale towards Ohio, 34-24, but with only 54.2% confidence.

Western Michigan has a real problem here. Why is that? They're less consistent than Purdue. Yes, that Purdue. The Broncos have a superior offense at 26.7 +/- 19.0 PPH, but their defense is all over the place at 9.0 +/- 21.4 PPH. The Boilermakers are awful on offense, sporting a 20.6 +/- 12.6 PPH efficiency. Having missed their chance to fire Danny Hope in favor of Mike Leach, Rich Rodriguez, Gus Malzahn, Jim McElwain, you get the idea, that efficiency is unlikely to change soon. Their only saving grace is that their 7.3 +/- 17.9 PPH defense isn't as bad as Western Michigan. This battle of bottom 45 teams should tip towards Purdue, 34-27, at only 50.4% confidence. Even at 50.4% confidence, this game is only the third hardest to predict in the entire bowl season.

This is possibly the first game in our countdown that will help us see whether or not strength of schedule matters. The Broncos played the ninth-weakest schedule in FBS, while the Boilermakers' schedule nearly ranked in the top third. With the exception of a win against UConn (by 7) and a loss to Eastern Michigan (by 4), the Broncos' season unfolded as expected. Purdue was a bit less predictable, winning games they should have lost (Illinois and Ohio State) and losing where they should have won (Rice). Both teams play slightly up-tempo, but neither has a real firepower of an offense. This will be fast but low-scoring, and close at the end. Expect the Broncos to pull off the upset, although just barely. Western Michigan 33, Purdue 32 (54.7%); 173 plays.

Both teams won their last seven games, but that's about where the comparisons end. While TCU isn't the juggernaut they were last season when they beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl, they're still too much for poor, overmatched Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs actually have a top-25 defense, but their offense is in serious danger of being shut out here. Yes, the Horned Frog defense is that good, and the Bulldog offense is that lackluster. To make it worse, Louisiana Tech tries to play fast; this will just give TCU more chances to be dominant and force the Bulldogs into 3-and-out situations. TFG is going to be charitable with the score, but predicts a dominating TCU victory. TCU 38, LA Tech 26 (81.8%); 170 plays.

TCU didn't quite live up to their preseason #1 ranking this year, but they still managed to stay a top 15 team, thanks to an explosive 32.7 +/- 17.2 PPH offense. However, their defense took a major step backwards to 5.0 +/- 16.7 PPH, struggling against strong competition unlike previous seasons. Louisiana Tech finished strong, beating a bunch of awful teams and Nevada. The Bulldogs just never separated themselves from the competition to distinguish themselves as a contender of any kind. This game shouldn't be that close because Louisiana Tech is worse on both sides of the ball. RBA says TCU wins, 34-24, with 77.9% confidence.
