The season is halfway over and we still have a ton of things to settle. Using picks and trends as well as projections to forecast the 2009-2010 bowls, you will see that the BCS formula will work itself out of its kinks and bring to us a very good set of watchable programming.

First thing you might notice is Boise State is projected to play in the New Mexico Bowl. I have them losing at home versus Idaho on November 14.

Also, for all of you football diehards, there are some great matchups, including the Holiday Bowl, Sun Bowl, Outback Bowl, Capital One Bowl, and Alamo Bowl.

This will get you in the mood for bowl season, even if we are a little more than two months away.
