    Bowl Predictions

    Eaglebank Bowl: Wake Forest vs Navy.
    New Mexico Bowl: Fresno St. vs Colorado St.
    St Petersburg Bowl: Memphis vs USF
    Las Vegas Bowl: BYU vs Arizona
    New Orleans Bowl: SMU vs Troy
    Poinsettia Bowl: TCU vs Boise St
    Hawaii Bowl: Notre Dame vs Hawaii
    Motor City Bowl: Florida Atlantic vs Central Michigan
    Meineke Car Care Bowl: North Carolina vs West Virginia
    Champs Sports: Florida St vs Wisconsin
    Emerald Bowl: Miami vs Cal
    Independence Bowl: Northern Illinois vs Louisiana Tech
    PapaJohns.com Bowl: NC State vs Rutgers
    Alamo Bowl: Northwestern vs Missouri
    Humanitarian: Maryland vs Nevada
    Holiday Bowl: Oregon vs Oklahoma State
    Texas Bowl: Rice vs Western Michigan
    Armed Forces Bowl: Houston vs Air Force
    Sun: Pitt vs Oregon State
    Music City Bowl: Boston College vs Vanderbilt
    Insight.com Bowl: Kansas vs Minnesota
    Chick-Fil-A Bowl: Georgia Tech vs LSU
    Outback: Iowa vs South Carolina
    Gator Bowl: Clemson vs Nebraska
    Capital One: Michigan State vs Georgia
    Cotton Bowl: Ole Miss vs Texas Tech
    Liberty Bowl: Kentucky vs East Carolina
    International Bowl: Buffalo vs Connecticut
    GMAC Bowl: Tulsa vs Ball State

    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

    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.

    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.

    I'm just dissapointed Notre Dame has a good shot at finally winning a bowl game...
