2012 BCS Predictions 11/1

Rose Bowl: Nebraska vs Oregon - I see Oregon beating Stanford in a close game. It is really a toss up in my mind though. I think Oregon will come out of the Pac 12 as the winner and they will get the automatic spot in the BCS. Nebraska is a shot in the dark. Wisconsin has 2 losses in the Big Ten. Ohio State has 2 loses. Penn State has 1 but still has to play Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. Illinois has 2. I think Nebraska will emerge from the dust at the winner.

Sugar Bowl: LSU vs Stanford - This would be subject to change depending on who wins the big matchup this weekend. Whoever loses will end up in this game in my opinion. The Sugar Bowl also gets an At-Large bid and I think they would like to bring Stanford into this game. This would be a very interesting matchup because LSU has one of the best defenses matched up against one of the best QBs in college football.

Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs Virginia Tech - The Big East is falling apart and guess what? Everyone still sucks. West Virginia always seems to be able to pull out some late games and win the conference. I'm not picking against them. I know Clemson is winning the conference but I have picked against Beamer before and I was wrong, so I don't pick against Virginia Tech anymore. They always fly under the radar and they are doing so again.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs Oklahoma - Wouldn't the Fiesta Bowl love to get this rematch? Boise State will probably go undefeated and once again, get shut out of the National Championship. Oklahoma has looked good for most of the year and more than likely they will once again end up in a BCS game.

BCS National Championship Game: Alabama vs Oklahoma State - If Alabama wins this weekend then more than likely they should end up in the National Championship game. They have played the normal Nick Saban Alabama way. Running the ball and defense. Oklahoma State is the exact opposite. Oklahoma State has the potential to score 35 points in the matter of 4 minutes. If this game happened we would see one of the most explosive offenses against one of the best defenses. It would be an exciting game for sure.

Post Week 6 BCS Predictions

Rose Bowl: Ohio State vs Stanford - Ohio State looks tough but with a game vs Wisconsin coming up this week it will be the first true test. I think they lose 1 game along the line but still win the Big Ten. Stanford makes it into the Rose Bowl as an At-Large bid seeing as I believe they will finish they year with 1 or 2 loses this season.

Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs Michigan State - Yes this sounds messed up. Yes I said Michigan State, not Michigan. Am I losing it? I might be. The Big East has no clear leader right now seeing as Syracuse is in front right now with a 4-1 record. West Virginia is clearly the best team in this conference but will they play like it? Michigan State might have their year this year. They are playing well and have made it through the tough part of their schdule. They also don't play Ohio State. The only really tough game for them left is at Iowa in a few weeks. If they make it through that, they could possibly go undefeated.

Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs Utah - A rematch of a few years ago. I know this is Utah, I think they will beat TCU when they play them this seaosn and Utah goes undefeated. Utah has shown they can play with the big boys and now they are on their way to the Pac 10. Alabama with 1 loss is probably the best 1 loss team in the nation. I would still pick them to beat almost any team in the country.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs Nebraska - Boise, your still getting shut out. You didn't prove me anything this year. You showed me you can beat Oregon State whose 3-2 and that you can beat a team that James Madison can too. Either way, your starting rank gets you close to a National Championship game. Too bad you don't play in a good conference. Nebraska is my pick to win the Big 12. They have been dominant in almost all of their games and Taylor Martinez has looked very good all season.

BCS National Championship Game: Oregon vs Auburn - I know this is a bold prediction and I am not sure what has been going through my mind. Oregon is a legit contender this season. They will probably win the Pac 10 and could very well go undefeated. Auburn has been very good, but they have a few big games left. If they beat Arkansas, LSU, and Alabama, they deserve to go to the National Championship game but a lot can change between now and then.

Week 10 Predictions

#1 Florida vs Vanderbilt - Okay, really? Do I have to go into detail. Florida SHOULD win this game pretty easily with out much trouble and Tebow should have a big day. Florida 45-7

#2 Texas vs UCF - UCF has no chance. Easily said. Colt McCoy has a big day and the backups eventually come in, probably in the second half because Texas is up by so much. Texas 49-6

#3 Alabama vs #9 LSU - A very good game. LSU's season depends on this game so they can go to the SEC championship game. Alabama is the only team in there way. Jordan Jefferson has a big day, BUT Mark Engram has a bigger day. Alabama wins. Alabama 27-20

#4 Cincinnati vs Conneticut - UCONN is still not playing well since the loss of one of their players and Tony Pike is practicing so I am going to have to go with Cincinnati but watch out. Close. 10 points or less. Cincinnati 31-21

#5 Boise State at Louisiana Tech - Boise State wins. It is the WAC. Boise is the only good team this year and possibly Fresno but they beat them already. Boise wins big. Boise 56-7

#6 TCU at San Diego State - TCU wins in a blowout. It will be by atleast 30 points. TCU is my pick to go to a BCS game. TCU 42-10

#7 Oregon at Stanford -  Watch out Oregon. Stanford has Tony Gerhart and after such and emotional win, this could be a trap game for Oregon. Very Close. Comes down to the 4th quarter but Oregon pulls it out. Oregon 31-27

#8 Iowa vs Northwestern - Iowa is going to give there coach a heart attack this year. Knowing them, Northwestern keeps it close in the first half but Iowa pulls of some magic and wins again. Iowa 42-31

#10 Georgia Tech vs Wake Forest - Wake Forest got unluckly last week and unfortunantly they aren't going to have any luck this week either. Georgia Tech wins 35-10

#12 USC at Arizona State - USC is angry this week and puts on an offensive show case. Not even close. Arizona State is like a punching bag this week. USC 52-10

#13 Houston at Tulsa - Houston doesn't pull of a late win this week.... They just win by putting up a ton of points. Tulsa, your going to lose. Houston 56-35

#14 Pittsburg at Syracuse - Pitt has been playing well and it doesn't stop here. Greg Paulus puts up a fight but not for long. Pitt win 32-17

#15 Ohio State at #11 Penn State - I think this will be the best game. This is a toss up. I think Ohio State comes into this game with a chip on there should and play with a ton of intensity. Penn State has to win this game to even have a chance at a Rose Bowl birth. Ohio State 24-20

#16 Miami (FL) vs Virgainia - Miami, you won't have to convert a 4 &16. you win 35-7. No need to worry about a late comeback from Jacory Harris.

#17 Utah vs New Mexico - New Mexico has too much controversy around them. That wouldn't matter anyways. Utah doesn't even have to try. Utah wins 48-7

#18 Oklahoma State at Iowa State - Iowa State is 5-3 and I think they will put up a good fight but Oklahoma State pulls it out. Oklahoma State should be on upset alert though. Oklahoma State wins in a close one. 31-30.

#19 Notre Dame IDLE - Notre Dame can sit back and just watch the comptetion and hope they make BCS

#20 Oklahoma at Nebraska - Oklahoma goes down. Nebraska and Bo Pelini take out Bob Stoops and the Sooners. Nebraska wins on a last second field goal though. 30-28

#21 Arizona vs Washinton State - Washington State is horrible. Arizona wins easily. Arizona 38-9

#22Virginia Tech at East Carolina - Virginia Tech wants revenge on East Carolina from last year, and they get it. The Hokies and Ryan Williams win big. Tech 38-6

#23 California vs Oregon State - Oregon State has played well and I think well enought to pull the upset. Javid Best has a good game but not good enough. Oregon State wins 27-17

#24 Wisconsin at Indiana - Wisconsin doesn't let Indiana hang around like Iowa did. They win, but closer than the experts think. Wisconsin 31-17

#25 BYU at Wyoming - Max Hall keeps BYU from getting upset but it is not even close. BYU wins 45-7
