With the start of the college football season only a few months away, it's never too early to start talking BCS bowl games.
And while I held out on writing this article significantly longer than some of my colleagues, I've caught college football fever and I cannot wait any longer.
There are a few interesting teams to watch this football season. In the Big Ten, all eyes are on Ohio State and the team's new head coach and expected savior, Urban Meyer. Another interesting team to watch will be Michigan State, particularly how the team will recover after losing great senior leadership.
In the SEC, LSU and Alabama will battle it out yet again for the conference title, but Georgia is a team that could make things interesting. All three could potentially be early favorites for the National Championship game.
In the Pac-12, USC and Oregon seem to be early favorites for the top spot out west. If one of these two teams can stay perfect, there's a good chance that the winner of the Pac-12 will be playing for a national championship.
With so many story lines coming in to play before the season has even started, there are a number of teams that could contend for a BCS bowl bid. However, since I can not choose them all, the following are teams that I believe will have the best chance of making BCS bowl games in 2013.
