My non-BCS bold predictions did not turn out so well, as large underdog Duke -- despite an incredible 36-18 advantage in first downs -- could not overcome four costly turnovers including two inside the Cincinnati 10-yard line in their loss. Meanwhile, the Beef 'O' Brady's and Maaco Las Vegas bowls did not turn out to be the highest scoring and lowest scoring bowl games like I predicted.

I'm hoping to rebound in a big way with my Bold Predictions for the BCS Bowl Games.

1. Barry Alvarez will move to 4-0 in Rose Bowls as the Badgers will upset Stanford
