The BCS bowl picture saw some changes after Michigan State ended Ohio State’s 24-game winning streak. In doing so, the Spartans ended Ohio State’s national championship hopes and probably secured themselves a spot in the Rose Bowl.

Facing Michigan State would be Stanford, who won its second straight Pac-12 championship with a victory over Arizona State.

Auburn's victory over Missouri lifted it into the championship game.

Elsewhere, Auburn hung 59 points on Missouri in the SEC Championship Game, and it would be a shock if the Tigers weren’t the team that took Ohio State’s place opposite Florida State in the national title game.

After being bounced from the national championship game, the Buckeyes' 11-1 record will still be good enough for a spot in the Orange Bowl where they’ll face the Clemson Tigers.

With Ohio State dropping to the Orange Bowl, Alabama gets knocked to the Sugar Bowl where a matchup with Oklahoma awaits it after the Sooners upset Oklahoma State in the Bedlam Series.

After Oklahoma State’s loss, the Big 12 championship was left to the winner of the Baylor-Texas game. Baylor won easily and claimed its first ever outright conference championship and a spot in the Fiesta Bowl.

Its opponent will probably be UCF, who finished the season 10-1 behind the superb play of quarterback Blake Bortles.

After a tremendously entertaining college football season that saw plenty of highlights, upsets and game-changing plays, we can only hope that the bowl games continue to give us such exciting football.
