Those are brutal games other than the title game and the Fiesta. The Cotton Bowl, Peach Bowl, and Capital One Bowl, and Alamo Bowl all have more intrigue than those other 3. hell, Im more excited with GT/USC than the other 3.

Boise's offense is an abortion. OU is light years better on paper than either of these teams.

Boise had 2 losses playing a cupcake schedule. They are even less deserving than the two 10-2 WAC teams.

Orange, Sugar, and Rose don't really excite me. The Rose Bowl I'll watch because it'll be the only thing on, and the others I'll likely watch by default since the lockout will still be on. I missed last year's Rose Bowl because I was at the Winter Classic, so I'll likely make it a point to watch it this year.

Your hatred for BSU is quite amusing.

They scored twice as many td's as they gave up (42/21). Those two losses you mention so much were by a total of 6 points @ the home opener of MSU and vs a very good SDSU. SJSU and Utah State are two very good teams that played "cupcake" schedules, as well, and aren't as good as BSU.

I agree about OU, but if they wouldn't have lost the 2 most important games of their season, they'd be in a BCS game/

NIU racked up better stats than that against a cupcake schedule. They also managed to lose 1 fewer game than Boise.

The two WAC teams are ahead of Boise in the computers. That happens because those two teams played tougher schedules than Boise.

OU lost vs #1 and #6. Boise lost vs MSU and SDSU, neither of whom are "very good."

Georgia is in the Capital One against Nebraska. So I guess it will LSU/Clemson in the Peach and Michigan/South Carolina in the Outback.

It should be. LSU tends to play down to the competition. This is of course it is in fact them n that game. I dont think it is confirmed yet but that is what it is looking like. unless they want a rematch of of South Carolina and Clemson?

That one loss was to a bad 4-8 Iowa. NIU didn't play a single team with a winning record outside of their league. The teams over .500 in the MAC feasted on horrible MAC teams like Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Massachusetts, Akron, Buffalo and Miami OH.

The only notable out of wac game Utah state was at 5-loss Wisconsin, which they lost. They also lost to BYU, who Boise beat.

SJSU had a better out of WAC schedule, but unlike Boise, they finished 2nd in their league.

SDSU was 9-3. I'd say they were pretty good. MSU was projected to be a lot better than what they were.

Also, OU finished 2nd, BSU didn't.

If UCLA loses next week to Stanford that's one team the MAC champion is likely to pass, but there might still be too many teams ahead of them to get into the top 16. If it did happen, the BCS games would probably look like:

BCS: Notre Dame (BCS no. 1) vs. Alabama (BCS no. 2)
Rose: Stanford (Pac-12) vs. Nebraska/Wisconsin (B1G)
Fiesta: Kansas State (Big XII) vs. Oregon (BCS at-large)
Sugar: Florida (BCS at-large) vs. Louisville/Rutgers (Big East)
Orange: Florida State/Georgia Tech (ACC) vs. Kent State/Northern Illinois (BCS at-large)
Nailed it

Northern Illinois is a shocker but good for them.

Was looking forward to Texas A&M/Michigan but Nebraska dashed any hope of that after losing to a bad Wisconsin team.

Which is just another reason why Ohio State should be the last team thumping their chest after how pathetic the Big Ten was this year

Michigan confirmed for Outback Bowl..likely against South Carolina

Which means Northwestern is likely headed to the Gator bowl.

Still would've liked Texas A&M but Denard's injury against Nebraska realistically killed that chance. Much less beating Ohio State this year.

If it turns out to be true..Clemson has a talented and athletic team...they can hang with LSU.

RT @DanWetzel: Rule that got NIU in was established to help defend BCS from anti-trust lawsuit. ESPN acting like it's a football decision


Don't want to take anything away from NIU, but it's more proof that this was a terrible year for college football.

The best thing about the whining is that they're whining about the computers.

Ignoring that if it wasn't for the computers.... Boise State gets the AQ, so Oklahoma wasn't having anything stole from them like they whined about. The only reason NIU goes instead of Boise is the computers.

I love when this system gets broken, it should get broken, it sucks.

It was also fairly obvious last night, but their resident genius didn't figure it out until he was probably given a tip. NIU had CPU points and was going to get more by winning against Kent State, who got their CPU points by beating Rutgers.

Oklahoma got destoyed at home by ND and beat by 3 td's at Texas Tech.

They don't deserve to be in a BCS game.
