Pre Week 5 BCS Predictions

Posted on: October 2, 2010 10:57 am
 
Rose Bowl: Iowa vs Oregon - Iowa has a few tough games left against Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Penn State. They will probably win 1 or 2 of them. The Rose Bowl commitee will probably take them because they like to stick with Big 10 teams. Oregon looks really good but I think they will slip up somewhere to Stanford, USC, UCLA, Oregon State, Cal etc. so they won't be a National Championship team. Instead they return to the Rose Bowl to take on the Hawkeyes.

Sugar Bowl: Arkansas vs Utah - Surprise! I think Arkansas has a great team and they will continue to learn and grow as a team. Bobby Petrino has a great QB in Ryan Mallet and I think he leads them to a 10-2 or 11-1 record this year. Utah beats TCU this year and goes undefeated. They return to the BCS for the third time to take on the Razorbacks. Utah does not have one stand out player, if you look at the statistics, they play multiple people and it seems like half the team touches the ball in one game. There is my bold prediction for the day.

Orange Bowl: Miami(FL) vs Stanford - The ACC does not have a clear leader for the moment. Miami clearly has the best team available. (North Carolina still has half their defense suspended) Jacory Harris will probably get in a grove towards the end of the season and help his team win an ACC championship. Stanford is led by Andrew Luck. They seem to be almost flying under the radar, except for the game today vs Oregon. If they win today they will be the front runner for the Pac 10 but I think they finish behind Oregon but still in the top 10 for the season.

Fiesta Bowl: Nebraska vs Boise State - Led by Taylor Martinez, the Corn Huskers will be a force in the Big 12 this season. The Big 10 will get to deal with them next season. Nebraska will probably lose 1 or 2 games but enough to still win the Big 12 North, seeing as they do not have much competition in the North. Then they will win the Big 12 Championship. Boise, you're of luck again. You go undefeated but you still finish 3rd. Good thing you are switching conferences.

National Championship Game: Alabama vs Ohio State - Probably the two best teams in the country. Mark Ingram vs Terrelle Pryor. This is a game of two of the greatest programs in history. Two teams that play the same style of offense. Alabama has a tough schedule left but if they can make it through the next few games, it should be easy the rest of the games. Ohio State has their last 3 games to make it through and Wisconsin next week.

This is mid season predictions. Look for new predictions in 2 weeks, for updated opinions.

Utah is a bold prediction.
