NEW YORK ( -- Perhaps eleven games aren't enough to properly assess most college football teams. Or parity is just that great.

Either way, when it came to picking the winners of all 25 bowl games, Sports Illustrated college football writers Tim Layden, Ivan Maisel and B.J. Schecter were only unanimous on nine of the winners.

One of those, though, was Florida State over Oklahoma in the national championship Orange Bowl.
