    Here's how I see it. (my picks in color)
    Should be a pretty good bowl season overall

    In the end it is another example of why the BCS isn't the best way to go about this. Name one other major nationally followed sport college or pro that doesn't have a playoff

    EagleBank Bowl - Wake Forest vs. Navy

    New Mexico - Colorado State vs. Fresno State (CSU not too bad this season)

    St. Petersburg - South Florida vs. Memphis

    Pioneer - BYU vs. Arizona

    R+L Carriers - Troy vs. Southern Miss (No Idea)

    San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia - TCU vs. Boise State

    Sheraton Hawaii - Hawaii vs. Notre Dame (Never pick ND)

    Motor City - Central Michigan vs. Florida Atlantic

    Meineke Car Care - North Carolina vs. West Virginia

    Champs Sports - Florida State vs. Wisconsin

    Emerald - California vs. Miami (Fla.)

    Independence - Louisiana Tech vs. Northern Illinois (No Idea)

    Papajohns.com - Rutgers vs. N.C. State (HO -HUM)

    Valero Alamo - Northwestern vs. Missouri (Too much offense for LeMiz)

    Roady's Humanitarian - Maryland vs. Nevada (Easterners don't do good in western air.)

    Texas - Rice vs. Western Michigan

    Pacific Life Holiday - Oregon vs. Oklahoma State

    Bell Helicopter Armed Forces - Air Force vs. Houston

    Brut Sun - Oregon State vs. Pittsburgh

    Gaylord Hotels Music City - Vanderbilt vs. Boston College (BORING)

    Insight - Kansas vs. Minnesota (BORING II)

    Chick-fil-A - LSU vs. Georgia Tech (Still some pride in the Bayou Bengals)

    Outback - Iowa vs. South Carolina (MORE BORING)

    Capital One - Georgia vs. Michigan State (Dawg's played so many good teams)

    Konica Minolta Gator - Nebraska vs. Clemson (GO CLEMSON!!!!)

    Rose presented by Citi - Penn State vs. USC :asskicking: Statement Time by one serious defense....My choice this post season in a playoff round 1 USC vs Texas Tech

    FedEx Orange - Virginia Tech vs. Cincinnati (Two unworthy teams, which one couldn't Texas Tech pound in Miami!) BCS Sucks!

    AT&T Cotton - Texas Tech vs. Ole Miss :eiertritt: (Poor Ole Miss - Q. Would Tech make a playoff if they had one? A. Only if they went by ranking.)

    AutoZone Liberty - East Carolina vs. Kentucky (BORING III)

    Allstate Sugar - Utah vs. Alabama (Should be great fun to watch) :thumbsup:

    International - Connecticut vs. Buffalo No silly little bowls after Dec 31 come on

    Tostitos Fiesta - Texas vs. Ohio State (UT, one of the angriest teams this bowl season) :asskicking:

    GMAC - Tulsa vs. Ball State (See "International" above)

    FedEx BCS National Championship - Oklahoma vs. Florida (Could be a truly awesome game, best since the Rose with USC vs UT....those two could have gone at it all night long.)
