Bowl predictions for 2013 now include the Alamo Bowl and Holiday Bowl. These 2013 bowl predictions from ESPN suggest Oregon and Arizona State are easily going to win their match-ups with Texas schools. A report from ESPN on Monday (Dec. 30) weighs in on the latest two games that the Pac-12 Conference will play in this postseason. The two college football experts making these picks are Kevin Gemmell and Ted Miller, both of whom have been following the conference very closely this year.

In the Oregon vs. Texas Valero Alamo Bowl, both experts have the Ducks winning by double digits. Gemmell doesn't think the game is going to even be close, picking the Ducks to beat the Longhorns 48-24. He is 3-1 so far this postseason in picks that have involved Pac-12 teams, so he is the more trustworthy of the two analysts so far. As for Miller, he has the Ducks winning by 16 points, further suggesting that the game might not even be that close.

In the Arizona State vs. Texas Tech National University Holiday Bowl, the analysts are even unsure that a close contest can take place. Gemmell has the Sun Devils winning by 18 points and Miller picking them by 17 points. It is pointed out that the Red Raiders have a pretty bad defense that is ranked No. 92 in the nation and that probably won't do well against a Sun Devils offense that likes to pass the ball a lot. It's possible that the game becomes even higher scoring than the 42-24 and 45-28 projections.

These 2013 bowl predictions are for two games that will take place on Monday, Dec. 30. The Oregon vs. Texas game is at 3:45 p.m. PT on ESPN and is followed by Arizona State vs. Texas Tech at 7:15 p.m. PT.
