Through the close of 2013, we’ve already seen 23 college football Bowl Games played, but some of the biggest games of the entire season are still to come amidst the schedule of 12 games on the 2014 calendar. Here at GoodGameBro.com, we wanted to turn to EA SPORTS NCAA Football 14 and see what the game predicts will happen in six of the biggest games left; the five BCS Bowl Games, plus the AT&T Cotton Bowl (the only non-BCS Bowl to pit two Top 15 schools against one another).
In order to arrive at these results, NCAA Football 14 on PlayStation 3 was set up for each match-up as a CPU-versus-CPU simulation. The correct stadiums were used, with 7 minute quarter lengths. Each game only got a single simulation, and that was the result captured and used for the sake of this project.
