By now you know who is facing whom in all of the BCS games this year.  But for the record, here is the rundown:

 

Sugar Bowl:

Cincinnati vs. Florida

 

Fiesta Bowl:

Boise State vs. Texas Christian

 

Orange Bowl:

Iowa vs. Georgia Tech

 

Rose Bowl:

Oregon vs. Ohio State

 

BCS National Championship Game:

Texas vs. Alabama

 

Thoughts

Well, as much as it would seem that the BCS hates the Big Ten, it is one of only two conferences to get two teams into BCS bowls.  (Partially due to the two “mid-majors” in the Fiesta Bowl.) 

I would love to see Texas beat Alabama, because I really don’t like the SEC and never have, but I’m kind of getting tired of this whole “Big 12 vs. SEC” game for the national championship. 

I really don’t understand the Fiesta Bowl matchup.  I know both TCU and Boise have been trying to make a case to play for the title, but playing each other isn’t going to get it done. 

If anything, I think the greatest interest would have come from switching TCU and Cincy in their respective bowl games.  But I digress. 

For the state of Ohio football, I hope that Florida puts Cincinnati in its place by 30 and that Ohio State is able to muscle out a win against Oregon.  Tell me your predictions below in the comments section.
