2022 College Football Bowl Projections

First things, first: Yes, I am Costanza — Lord of the Idiots!

When Nebraska got off to a hot start against Northwestern in its opener in Week 0, I hit the ol’ Twitter machine and fired off this beauty:

Huskers look very impressive on 1st drive. Who was the only idiot to put Nebraska No. 25 on his preseason @AP_Top25 ballot? This guy 👍🏻

Enough lunacy — onto my bowl projections. And, by the way, they’re real and they’re spectacular! Each matchup includes the projected point spread based on Action Network senior writer Collin Wilson’s current college football betting power ratings. Giddy up!
