    Re: Orange Bowl

    USC wins by 10.

    Another pet peeve: when all these national college football analysts say with complete definitivenes (is that a word) that these are the two best teams in the country and basically implying that Auburn has nothing to complain about. Seriously, I had to turn the TV off, I couldn't watch the coverage any longer. No one knows THAT MUCH about football that the can offer anything more than an opinon by watching these teams play completely different schedules all year long. No one knows for sure and Auburn deerves a shot at the title.

    USC by 3. Oklahoma will keep it close since Reggie Bush will be in one certain position tonight.

    Just like USC last year and Oregon the year before.

    I hate the Big 12.

    Re: Orange Bowl

    I'm cheering for USC, but really only because I'll win $50 in my friend's bowl pool if they win. But even if there was no money on the line I'd pick USC in a rout, I think they're that much better than Oklahoma. I'd have rather seen a USC/Auburn matchup.

    Re: Orange Bowl

    USC big. Too bad the game loses credibility as a "National Championship" w/ me since an SEC team finished 13-0. And I am not an SEC fan.

    I do not like USC or Okla.. My distaste for Oklahoma is greater though. Blame it on Barry Switzer, Brian Bosworth and all the other thugs that program used to have. USC... mainly do not like them b/c of the old 70's/80's days when it was Big Ten vs. Pac Ten in the Rose Bowl. But that was longer ago than the Oklahoma thug thing.

    Not to nitpick Puffster, but the first beneficiary wasn't Oklahoma, it was FSU.

    Remember, FSU and Miami both had one loss. OU was undefeated. Miami got hosed because they had beaten FSU, but Miami lost late, so they couldn't get higher than No. 3.

    Worked as nice motivation for Miami to come out and run the table the next year.

    Same with USC. They got hosed last year, so they came out and stomped everyone this season.

    Auburn should take note.

    Re: Orange Bowl

    I'll go with Oklahoma, which is an against-the-grain pick here in Texas, too. I just think they're due to come up big and the underdog often overachieves in these BCS Finales.

    Yeah, you're right - but WVRed was talking about Oregon (Nebraska got the bid over them), USC (Oklahoma got the bid over them) and Auburn (Oklahoma got the bid over them).

    I was just responding to WVRed, but I remember the Miami-Florida St thing.

    Oklahoma 35-17.

    USC is a bunch of West Coast wienies. Look at what happened to Cal and UCLA in their bowls.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Re: Orange Bowl

    USC finally sees a team with both a real defense and offense. I'm not sure who wins, but I would be suprised if Peterson doesn't tear them up.
