BILLS PICK THE BOWLS

It's the most wonderful time of the year ... at least for college football. With a full slate of 35 bowl games between Dec. 21 and Jan. 6, the bowl season is a time when some of college football's most passionate fans voice their support for their favorite schools, NFL players included. That being said, we asked six Bills to choose a winner for each of the 35 games for buffalobills.com. We'll keep a running tally of their picks throughout the bowl season.

Here's the list of those picking the games, and where they played their college ball.

--DT Marcell Dareus (Alabama)
--QB EJ Manuel (Florida State)
--S Da'Norris Searcy (North Carolina)
--RB C.J. Spiller (Clemson)
--S Aaron Williams (Texas)
--C Eric Wood (Louisville)

EDITOR'S NOTE: Each player picks their former school to win. You didn't actually expect them to pick against their own team, did you?
