This year's Rose Bowl will likely be determined this weekend with the results of the Big Ten Championship game and the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Tonight the Oregon Ducks face off against the UCLA Bruins in a game where they are favorites by more than 30 points.

Tomorrow night, Wisconsin and Michigan State take part in a rematch from a game that came down to a last second hail mary earlier in the year.

Michigan State won that meeting. It's doubtful they get so lucky again.

Wisconsin has proven throughout the season that they are the more consistent and overall better team out of the two.

A win for Oregon and Wisconsin could make for the best Bowl Game that College Football has to offer this season.

Oregon averages 45.9 points per game this season. Wisconsin is putting up 44.8 points per game. They rank third and fourth in college football respectively.

These are two of the most explosive offenses in the nation. There have been complaints across the country about the possibility of an LSU vs. Alabama rematch for the National Championship.

This is because they are defensive teams. In the last few years,  the game of football has developed into an offensive game.

People want to see big plays and high scores.

A showdown between the Ducks and Badgers would give everyone just that.

Russell Wilson has had a Heisman type season. Montee Ball has scored 34 touchdowns this season, trailing only O.J. Simpson in the record books.

The rushing attack between Oregon's LaMichael James and Kenjon Barner has given teams across the country fits all season.

A showdown between these two teams would put star power on the field at all times. No matter who is in the game, the idea that a big play could happen any second is always a possibility.

The BCS Championship is obviously the most prestigious of the bowl games, but the Rose Bowl will likely be the most exciting.
