Fiesta gets first pick in the BCS this year, would rather see Alabama/Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl.

Oh, I know. I'd gladly take the OU matchup, but I'd prefer something new.

UCLA will at least be a 3-loss team in that scenario, in fact every Pac-12 outside of Oregon will have at least 3 losses. The only Pac-12 team the Rose could get is Oregon.

Then ND is probably in the Rose Bowl.

Kansas State and Oregon both get knocked out of the top 2 seeds. An Oregon State win tonight and the Civil War next week will become more interesting for the winner of the Pac 12 North will play UCLA for the Pac 12 Title.

Just for kicks, my current Bowl predicitions:

Champions:
B1G- Nebraska
Pac12- Stanford
Big East- Louisville
SEC- Alabama
Big12- KState
ACC- Florida State
At-Large: LSU, Oregon, Clemson, Notre Dame.

NCG: Notre Dame-Alabama
Rose Bowl: Stanford-Nebraska
Fiesta Bowl: Kansas State-Oregon
Sugar Bowl: LSU-Clemson
Orange Bowl: Florida State-Louisville

Even though I dislike the SEC, I really think they should be allowed to have 3 BCS teams, as they have so many good teams. I picked LSU as the At-Large from the SEC as I see them winning out, while Florida and Georgia lose, and drop past LSU in the rankings. Clemson gets an At-Large, because they will be the highest ranked, non champion, non SEC team left. Hopefully I'm wrong about some of my predictions, as I rather see Georgia make the NCG.

This season has been a true **** fest.

When they say a team is bowl eligible does that mean they are 100% going to a bowl game?

No because there can be more eligible teams than there are bowl slots. That's almost certainly not going to happen this year (partly due to a lot of probations/bowl bans), and in fact there's a possibility a 5-7 team will get to fill a bowl slot.

I like the Bowls but there are far too many. It seems they add 2 more every year. 28 or whatever was fine, but now there's like 36 and you're getting to a point for 5-7 teams are in them.

I also hate how slop bowls like the GMAC and Independence have been played in between New Years and the Title game in recent years when they used to be pre-Christmas games.

Yeah, that's garbage. Everything really should be finished no later than January 5.

National Championship
Alabama vs. Notre Dame

Sugar Bowl
Florida/Georgia vs. Oklahoma

Fiesta Bowl
Kansas State vs. Oregon

Orange Bowl
Florida State vs. Louisville

Rose Bowl
Stanford vs. Nebraska

Assuming K-state beats Texas and the better team wins each conference.

Cotton Bowl might be better off picking Georgia/Florida, LSU, or even South Carolina, but I still think they'll pick a TU/TAMU matchup if they can get it. The amount of press that game would get would be so worth skipping over better teams IMO. (That and I really wanna see us destroy TU one last time).

Notre Dame/Alabama should be a treat. The Fighting Irish looked pretty formidable against USC tonight. They have weapons on both side of the ball.

Not a chance Georgia makes it over Florida with two losses, Florida is going to be ranked in the top 4 of the BCS standings and so they will get an automatic at-large bid. Georgia is going to fall behind Florida, Oregon, and Kansas State with a loss, at the very least.

Florida will lock up a bid as #3 if Alabama beats UGA. Oregon should as #4 as well. UGA is title game or bust since their schedule is a dumpster fire.

BCSNCG
Notre Dame vs Alabama/UGA

Rose
B1G (Neb/Wis) vs Pac-12 (Stan/UCLA)

Fiesta
Big 12 (KSU/OU) vs Oregon

Sugar
Florida vs At-Large (OU/K-State/FSU/Clemson)

I like how you just leave out the Orange altogether.

But I actually agree, it's a BCS game in name only and there are likel to be several more interesting games on the slate.

Aren't the ACC and Big East champs guaranteed bids?

Nope, Florida State in 2002 with a 9-5 record is the only BCS bowl team ever with 5 losses.

the Ga tech thing raises another question...

looking at this page it appears there are currently 67 bowl eligible teams.

UConn and Cincinnati play each other, so only one of them will become bowl eligible.

Ga tech, even though they are 6-6, can paradoxically lose bowl eligibility because they are forced(?!) to play in their conference's championship game, and a loss makes them 6-7, thus "costing" them a bowl bid


but then, that only leaves 68 bowl eligible teams, and according to this list there are 35 bowl games meaning 70 teams will be needed...

so what happens? I could see them going ahead and allowing Ga tech to accept a bowl bid because of the unusual circumstance that led them to have 7 losses and 6 wins, but thats still only 69... so presumably some 5-7 team is going to a bowl this year... what a joke...

and that 5th loss was only AFTER losing the Sugar bowl.... presumbly GT could beat FSU, go to the Orange Bowl, lose, and be the only BCS team to finish with 7 losses

According to Stewart Mandel at CNNSI, there are going to be 70 bowl eligible teams, so no 5-7 teams. GT will probably get a waiver for the reason you stated.
