Peewee experts star in “The Bear, The Bot
and A Baby”

ESPN’s comprehensive college football bowl season coverage kicks off Saturday at noon with the Celebration Bowl (noon ET, ABC) and continues through the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 8 (8 p.m. ET) in Atlanta.

Recently, ESPN’s Features Unit producer Steve Buckheit gathered a group of pundits in the Bristol, Conn., studios to pick bowl winners. The experts include: The Bear (Chris Fallica of College GameDay); the Bot (F.R.E.D – the FPI Research 7 Entertainment Device – the physical embodiment of ESPN FPI); and a “Baby” – actually, several young offspring of ESPN employees.

The result is the first in a series of entertaining and informative videos selecting bowl game winners that will be featured on ESPN platforms throughout bowl season and might help your Capital One Bowl Mania chances.

Watch one of the videos, published on, below.

In the video above, watch outtakes of the shoot featuring the “real experts” – the babies who use building blocks sporting college football team logos to make their picks.

SportsCenter will air the results and update the standings.
