Swami the Magazine: Bowl Preview Issue – May the Force Awaken

Greetings and welcome to another edition of the Bowl Preview Issue of Swami the Magazine!! As always, you will get The Swami’s for every single bowl game right here (and let’s be honest… this year that’s around 600 games!). Also, if you want to pick against the Swami AND the Guru you can do so! Just join our picks group on ESPN.com.

As for a theme, it was a no-brainer. We are only days from Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens opening, so a Star Wars theme seemed like a must for nerds like the Swami & Guru. Now, instead of choosing characters or movies for each matchup, the StM staff chose an interesting, nostalgic, or humorous picture for each matchup. Many have ties to other parts of popular culture showing how expansive the impact of the Star Wars universe really is. Or, they just picked a bunch of Star Wars type things that made the Swami chuckle. Whatever you want to believe! Now without further ado…
