Bowl game predictions for 2013 are starting to come in from the ESPN experts. Two of the 2013 bowl game predictions come from Saturday (Dec. 21), with the Pac-12 analysts weighing in on two match-ups involving teams from the conference. In a report from Friday (Dec. 20), Ted Miller and Kevin Gemmell have picked which teams they feel will win the Gildan New Mexico Bowl and the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl.

Opening Day Schedule

The New Mexico Bowl has the Washington State Cougars playing Colorado State from the Mountain West Conference. It's the first time that the Cougars have been in a bowl game in quite some time, making it an extremely exciting match-up for the school. Both experts feel that this one is going to end in favor of WSU, with the Cougars putting up quite a few points. Gemmell has them winning 41-28 and Miller has the team winning 45-20. Both feel that Connor Halliday is going to lead the Cougars to a lot of points.

In the later game, it is the USC Trojans vs. Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl. USC comes in with a 9-4 record, while Fresno State is 11-1 and had higher hopes of what could happen in the postseason this year. The Bulldogs were undefeated until a late season loss took them out of consideration for a BCS bowl game. Both experts feel that this is a tough game for USC, with Miller actually predicting they lose 35-28. Gemmell has the team pulling out a tight 31-28 win.

These 2013 bowl game predictions will play out on Saturday (Dec. 21), after which the two analysts will weigh in on the Boise State vs. Oregon State game on next Tuesday (Dec. 24).
