Outside of the BCS National Championship Game, there are four prestigious BCS bowl games that help its participants gain money and respect.

Unfortunately, there are deserving teams that will not get that opportunity. The bowl selection process is not always the simplest of things.

Instead of simply looking at records, committees are left to decide which teams are the most talented, would generate the most television interest and would sell the most tickets.

In addition, there are numerous automatic bids to be given from winners of the six major conferences.

Assuming there are no upsets next week, bowl game projections will look something like this:


BCS National Championship Game: Alabama vs. LSU

Orange Bowl: Virginia Tech vs. West Virginia (or whoever wins the Big East)

Sugar Bowl: Michigan vs. Houston

Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma State vs. Stanford

Rose Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Oregon

This leaves a few deserving teams on the outside looking in.
