  • Once again the Orange Bowl will be terrible. I actually think UL can beat FSU. I think the rest of the BCS games look pretty competitive, which is good. I'm not a BIG homer, but those matchups don't look bad for the conference. I know there is a lot of talk that the Capital One will choose A&M because the country has Manziel fever. Also, I don't like NW vs. Vandy...they already played this year.

  • yeah it could very well be Mississippi State vs Northwestern in the Gator Bowl but i just have a feeling Vandy will rematch

    i agree - overall the BCS games this year should prove to be competitive across the board

    the only ones that i think that could be blowouts is Oregon if they jump out on Kansas State and which Stanford team shows up against Wisconsin

    the rest i think will go down to the 4th quarter if both teams give their A game

    as for the Capital One Bowl matchup - i just do not see how A&M can get in there

    Georgia and LSU are currently ahead of them in rankings and in standings

    the only bowl i can see them hopping those two for is the Cotton because more than likely Texas will be in that game and an A&M matchup could be a "bigger draw" with them leaving the Big12 last year

  • I think these are close to accurate of what the bowl matchups will be. And if so, I'm not even a wee bit intrigued or enthused.

    Stanford vs Wisconsin is only a good matchup from the standpoint that both are pro-style, smashmouth football teams but let's not get fooled by yesterday's B1G title game because this is still the same Wisconsin team that lost five games.

    Kansas State vs Oregon? Okay but not something I'm dying to see even though I think there'll be a lot of points scored.

    FLA vs Oklahoma? We've already seen that in the title game four years ago. UF's defense will keep this a relatively low-scoring game. Ultimately this will come down to which Oklahoma team shows up.

    FSU vs Louisville is a snoozer--esp if the Seminoles aren't motivated for this game considering they hoped to be playing in a more high profile bowl game coming into this season.

    UGA vs Nebraska will come down to which team is most motivated after suffering devastating losses in their conference championship games.

    South Carolina vs Michigan could become as ugly as their matchup vs Miss State two years back--esp if the Gamecocks' defense shows up.

    Northwestern vs Vanderbilt? Saw Northwestern beat them two straight years. And it'd be just Northwestern's luck to lose this bowl and to remain winless in bowl games since 1949.

    LSU vs Texas would've been a good game if Texas were any good.

    A&M vs Clemson? Could be a shootout between Boyd and Manziel.

  • been reading some bowl game releases - Northern Illinois got a BCS game over Oklahoma

    they are going to the Orange Bowl to face Florida State


    Oklahoma goes to the Cotton Bowl to face Texas A&M

    so that throws my predictions out of the window
