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
