If form holds – and that means Texas finishing No. 2 in the BCS – this is how the BCS bowls will shake out tonight …
BCS title game – Texas vs. Alabama
Comment: Got to think Bama will be almost a prohibitive favorite but Texas wasn’t supposed to beat USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl either.
Fiesta Bowl – TCU vs. Boise State
Comment: Fiesta is always thinking out of the box. It becomes the first BCS bowl to match two undefeated non-BCS schools. Should be a ratings winner.
Orange Bowl – Iowa vs. Georgia Tech
Comment: Pasty Iowans will overrun South Florida and come away schooled in the ways of the option offense.
Sugar – Florida vs. Cincinnati
Comment: Alabama didn’t want to be here last year. Will Florida coming off an SEC title game loss? Also, who coaches the Bearcats with Brian Kelly headed to Notre Dame?
Rose – Oregon vs. Ohio State*
Comment: Might be the best game of the bunch. Chip Kelly’s wide open Quack Attack against Ohio State’s old-style defense.
Here is my final regular-season top five. You can see the entire top 25 later Sunday:
