Pac-12 bowl picks: The Rose

Better late than never on this one. So far, pretty productive bowl season for the Pac-12, which enters the Rose at 6-2.

A happy new year to all.

Michigan State (plus 6.5) vs. Stanford, Rose — The line has jumped up all the way from Stanford by 1 1/2 to the Cardinal by 6 1/2, which is pretty unusual. Some of it has to do with the disciplinary absence of MSU linebacker Max Bullough, but the number was already trending up when that happened. Seems to me it’s a little too high, in a game that figures to be low-scoring and defense-dominated. Stanford 20, Michigan State 17.

Pac-12 bowl-picks record — 5-3. Versus the spread — 5-3.
