The 2012 college football season is right around the midway point. Many pundits around the nation are beginning to make their predictions for the upcoming bowl games, which begin in about two months. Let's take a look at Jerry Palm's picks from CBS Sports and see which schools he thinks will reach the BCS bowl games.

He likes the Alabama Crimson Tide to win the SEC and take on the USC Trojans for the national championship. With the Trojans ranked No. 10 in the BCS now, Palm must feel they will win the Pac-12 championship game and win out the rest of the way.

For the Rose Bowl in SoCal, Palm believes Oregon will take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in what could be a high-scoring affair. The Florida St. Seminoles would take on the Boise St. Broncos for the Orange Bowl. The Georgia Bulldogs head to New Orleans to take on the Big East champion Louisville Cardinals in the Sugar Bowl. Finally, the Kansas St. Wildcats head to Glendale to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, who are currently ranked fifth in the BCS.
