The BCS national championship game moves to New Orleans this season. Here's who'll be there and at the other Bowl Championship Series games -- maybe.
BCS national championship game, Jan. 7 in New Orleans
Southern California vs. Texas
A rematch of the classic Rose Bowl title game from two seasons, but with no Vince Young to keep the Trojans for winning it all.
Orange Bowl, Jan. 3 in Miami
Virginia Tech vs. West Virginia
The Hokies will have the nation's best defense east of Los Angeles, and the Mountaineers will have the best offense with Pat White and Steve Slaton.
Fiesta Bowl, Jan. 2 in Glendale, Ariz.
Florida vs. Wisconsin
After going 12-1 and no BCS last year, Badgers get there this time. This is how defending champion Gators rebuild.
Sugar Bowl, Jan. 1 in New Orleans
LSU vs. TCU
The Tigers might be a little disappointed with a second straight trip down state. The Horned Frogs are this year's BCS buster -- they get there with one loss, falling to Texas.
Rose Bowl, Jan. 1 in Pasadena, Calif.
California vs. Michigan
The Bears get to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1959. The Wolverines get there for fourth time in five years, but this time they win it.
