LOU HOLTZ, SOUTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL COACH: "New York, 17-7. If for no better reason than because three of the Giants' offensive linemen (Luke Petitgout, Mike Rosenthal and Dusty Zeigler) played for me at Notre Dame, so I have to figure they're going to play well."

JAMIE DUNCAN, BUCCANEERS LINEBACKER: "I like Baltimore. It'll be low-scoring, 7-6, something like that."

CARLOS VALDERRAMA, MUTINY MIDFIELDER: "I like watching football. I'm trying to get some tickets. Know anybody that's selling tickets? I was hoping the Bucs would get in so maybe I could get some tickets. I think I'm going to be rooting for the Giants."

JOSHUA BELL, VIRTUOSO VIOLINIST: "Giants will win, 13-9."

SAMMY BAUGH, FORMER REDSKINS QB: "I'll take the Giants. I watch them all the time. I think the Giants have a good team. I have no idea what the score will be. I never know what they're going to do. They don't either a lot of the times."

KEITH NEWMAN, BUFFALO BILLS LINEBACKER AND JEFFERSON HIGH GRADUATE: "The team that gets to 17 points first, maybe even 14 points, will be the one to win. I'm not sure which team (will do that), but if I had to pick someone, I'd like to see Trent Dilfer win, especially with everything he went through in Tampa and now coming back here for the Super Bowl. Being a biased guy and being from Tampa, I'd like to see Trent win it."
