Bowl Games Predictions?

Any predictions?
The 2009 Champ Sports Bowl between Miami vs. Wisconsin tonight at 8 PM ET will be an open audition for the teams to impact the pollsters for next season. Bernard Pierce is going to run all over the Bruins' defense. They averaged giving up 144 yards per game on the ground during the season and I really don't think any of the backs they've faced are as talented as Pierce.
What are your Bowl Games predictions?

Predictions? Behind running back John Clay, Wisconsinís strength is their rushing attack. Miamiís defense allowed about 118 rushing yards per games this season but they held three of their last four opponents under that number. College Football Betting Odds list the total in this Wisconsin vs Miami game is set at 57 points.

The Hurricanes have a very balanced offense, particularly in the passing game, where they had 10 different players with at least 10 receptions, and another nine players with at least 100 yards receiving. Miami also appears to be a lot more battle tested than Wisconsin, scoring impressive wins over Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, and Florida State. The Badgers failed to defeat a Big 10 opponent with a winning record.

Wisconsin went 9-3 this season and was 5-6 against the spread on the year. The Badgers can give the Big Ten Conference a win in their bowl debut for the year, as the conference went just 1-6 in bowl games last year.

Miami is 9-3 this year and 6-6 against the spread. The Hurricanes won their last two games of the season, but have failed to cover in four of their last six games.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made Miami 3.5-point favorites over Wisconsin on Tuesday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 57.
