Bowl Projections: 5 Bowl Games No One Wants to See Happen
Every year, it seems like there are 10 awful bowl games for every one great one.
Whether it's a regular season rematch, two bad teams or a lopsided matchup, there are always postseason games that no one wants to see.
Here are five possible 2011-12 bowl scenarios that nobody is excited about.

While nobody doubts that an encore of No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama would be a great game, there is something unsatisfying about a rematch from November settling college football's championship.
The Tigers already beat the Tide, so what's the point?

Luckily for college football fans, the Bruins don't stand a chance against the Ducks in the inaugural Pac-12 title game Friday night.
After getting slaughtered by USC this weekend, UCLA will be lucky if they even keep it close.
Should a miracle occur and UCLA prevail, the 6-6 Bruins will undoubtedly be the worst team to ever make it to Pasadena.

With a win over Southern Miss next weekend in the Conference USA championship game, the No. 8 Houston Cougars will likely earn their first-ever BCS berth.
While everybody loves a BCS buster, nobody likes a BCS blowout.
The Cougars are a good team, and they should hold their own against whoever they play, but a Georgia-Hawaii situation is in the back of everyone's mind every time a mid-major makes it to the big stage.

There's a good chance that neither of college football's two favorite mid-majors are going to be playing in the BCS this year, and some bowl executive will undoubtedly believe that everyone will want to see Boise State and TCU meet yet again.
It might be a good idea when both teams are undefeated and left out of the BCS mix, but the two already played this season and a repeat isn't intriguing or exciting.
Big East BCS

It is debatable once again this season whether or not the Big East truly deserves an automatic BCS bid.
In a down year for the AQ conference that nobody seems to respect, it's hard to get excited over the prospect of the Big East champion taking center stage in the BCS.
