My Preview of the BCS Games

Well here we are.  College football season is winding down, and I’m sure you’re sick of the bowl and want to watch some real football.  Well you’re in luck, some of them start tomorrow.  Let’s first take a look at the Rose Bowl between Stanford and Wisconsin

Rose Bowl:


(8-5, 4-4 Big Ten)

(6) Stanford

(11-2, 8-1 Pac-12)

While I may have lost to a certain buttmunch in the video game version (won’t name names here), I still think this will be a close one.  Both sides have a strong rushing attack, and it’s anyone’s game.  I’m unsure though about which Wisconsin team will show up though.  Will it be the Wisconsin team that blew out Nebraska in the Big Ten Title game, or will it be the one that went belly up and lost to Oregon State on the road early in the season.  Either way I’ve got to go with the Cardinal on this one.  Any team that can slay the Ducks has my vote.

My Pick:  Stanford

Orange Bowl:

(15) N Illinois

(12-1, 8-0 MAC)

(12) Florida St

(11-2, 7-1 ACC)

Look at the article Neil posts on the recap on this game and you’ll see why.

My Pick:  Florida State

Sugar Bowl:

(21) Louisville

(10-2, 5-2 Big East)

(3) Florida

(11-1, 7-1 SEC)

Same with this one!

My Pick:  Florida

Fiesta Bowl:

(4) Oregon

(11-1, 8-1 Pac-12)

(5) Kansas St

(11-1, 8-1 Big 12)

Had it not of been for Baylor and Stanford this would be the national title game.  However, this is nothing to sniff at.  Both these teams have high powered offenses.  Kansas State is led by star quarterback Colin Klein, and Oregon has the double-trouble duo of De’Anthony Thomas, and Kenjon Barner.  Expect a lot of points in this one.  Kansas State’s defense is suspect though, and Oregon is also from the Pac-12 so there you go.

My Pick:  Oregon

Expect a nice little surprise before the National Title Game!
