ESPN analysts pick the five BCS bowls, Louisville has some believers

New, 59 comments

ESPN college football analysts picked the five BCS bowl games. For the Sugar Bowl, it wasn't unanimous in favor of Florida as Brock Huard and Joey Galloway think the Cardinals pull an upset.

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

Since the BCS bowl pairings were announced, Louisville fans have been subjected to nearly non-stop snickering and dismissal from pundits. Well, good news, Louisville has at least two believers. Below is a table courtesy of ESPN Media Zone that shows all of the ESPN analysts and their picks for who will win all five of the BCS bowl games. As you can see, Brock Huard and Joey Galloway are the only ones calling for a Louisville upset in the Sugar Bowl.

Before you laugh them off, remember this. I mocked Joey Galloway in the preseason because he was the lone person at ESPN, or anywhere else, that picked Syracuse to win the Big East. To his credit, Syracuse did finish tied for the Big East title. Here's hoping Mr. Galloway is right again.
