Most sports are able to associate a holiday with themselves. Football has Thanksgiving, baseball has the 4th of July, basketball has Christmas (or at least they try to), and college football has New Year's Day. There is no shortage of great matchups tomorrow, as Northwestern and Texas Tech start things off, followed by Florida vs.Penn State, Alabama vs. Michigan State, and Mississippi State vs. Michigan.
The two BCS bowl matchups, however, are where the focus lies. Alabama and Michigan State come on at 1 p.m. as a lead-in, Wisconsin and TCU play in the Rose Bowl at 4:30 p.m., and Connecticut and Oklahoma play in the Fiesta Bowl at 8:30 p.m. If one has to pick a BCS matchup to watch, which should be chosen? Which of the two is the better showdown?
