Now for the BCS:

Rose Bowl: Penn State vs USC

I've always been a Joe Paterno fan, but USC is deeper and faster than anything Penn State can dish out. If Mark Sanchez can keep from turning the ball over, this one could be over before it even starts.

Prediction: USC 28-13

Orange Bowl: Cincinnati vs Virginia Tech

Brian Kelly is one of the leagues brightest up and coming coaches and whether he will be coaching at Cincinnati or a higher profile job in five years will be seen. The Big East has not been as strong as people thought and the Bearcats mettle will be tested against a Hokie defense that is always tough.

Predicton: VT 20-10

Sugar Bowl: Utah vs Alabama

Sorry folks, no mid-major upset in the BCS this year. Like Brian Kelly, Kyle Whittingham will soon be on a list of potential coaches. However, the speed of the Crimson Tide will keep the Utes at bay.

Prediction: Alabama 34-7

Fiesta Bowl: Ohio State vs Texas

For once, Ohio State doesn't get to play an SEC team in a bowl game. Expect Will Muschamp to direct a Texas defense into coaxing freshman QB Terrelle Pryor into making mistakes to give the game to the Longhorns and send the Buckeyes to their third straight bowl loss.

Prediction: Texas 21-10

BCS National Championship: Florida vs Oklahoma

Say what you want about the BCS, this couldn't be a more picture perfect national championship. Florida's spread offense vs the high scoring Sooners of Oklahoma State. However, just like Ohio State the past two years, Oklahoma will not have an answer for the speed of an SEC defense. Doesn't help the Gators also have a homefield advantage.

Prediction: Florida 42-24
MVP: Tim Tebow

You would think a weak economy would kill some of the riff raff off.

Iowa over South Carolina in the Outback bowl. Usually I wouldn't care, but I'm actually going to this one--even though I'm not a fan of either school, we just thought it would be fun to go to a bowl game while on vacation.

As long as OU can beat Florida it will be a good bowl season. Gator nation or red sox nation, I'm not sure who's worse.

Red Sox nation by far...would much rather hear s*** from Gator fans than lame bandwagon stupid Red Sox fans.

I'm a big UK fan and I have to admit, I don't see them pulling out a win either in this game. They looked horrible second half of the season (with the exception of the Georgia game, which was still a loss.)

I think that is more of a tribute to how overrated Georgia is. They also hung pretty close with Alabama too.

ECU beat West Virginia, who has a spread QB in Pat White. White is also IMO a better QB than Randall Cobb. We run basically a worse version of WVU's offense, and it will end up costing us in this game.
