Looking through the only updated ones I could find at collegefootballnews.com, I see that they have my Buffs going to Houston for the Houston Bowl vs. Clemson, which is an interesting matchup, but what I dont like is the fact that they show Nebraska going to the Fort Worth Bowl...Nebraska isn't even bowl eligible yet with only 5 wins, and so they are implying that Nebraska will beat us on Friday to get bowl eligible, which Im not thrilled with...

How's your team faring in the bowl projections so far?

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I see they project Ohio State-UCLA in the Sun Bowl - that'd be fine with me!

Yesterday the TV announcers of the Ohio State-Michigan game were projecting the Bucks to play Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl. I have a close friend who is about to become an Ok St student, and as I'm an alum of the BUCKS, we'd both be "OSU students" - with my version of OSU being FAR superior, of course!!!  Wink/being sarcastic

BTW, I've always been a Buff fan, for some reason, but not really sure why!!

And, Hummer, any comments on the OSU-Michigan game yesterday??

That rivalry made it so much more fun when I was at Ohio State. It is always: no matter what has happened all season long with either team, you can throw everything out for that game - anything can happen at any time, and it often does!!!



Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.

Miami needs to lose to Virginia Tech so Florida can kick their ass like we did at FSU last night.

My Heels are projected to go to the Continental Tire Bowl in Charlotte, and thats where they better go because I already have tickets! I have a lot of family in the Charlotte area and used to live there so its perfect for me. Great season for North Carolina and why not top it off with a bowl win!

GO HEELS!

Hahahahaha, yeah I think that would be great. Hopefully the Heels wont have to play on that hideous blue field. I'd have to take breaks during the game for fear that I'd have permanent sight problems.

I like it. They have FOUR MAC teams in bowl games, and all four-Bowling Green, Toledo, Northern Illinois and Miami, Ohio, deserve it.

And OSU vs UCLA? Cool, a throwback game!  Big grin

The Big 12 North has been incredibly lackluster this year. I too am a Colorado alumni, and it would be nice to see them end up here in Ft. Worth somehow. Am I missing something, or is Iowa State being neglected in the bowl selection process? Right now, they lead the Big 12 North division and could very well play Oklahoma in the conference title game.

As many of us know, that game is notorious for screwing up the BCS. Let's not forget the year that Nebraska did not even qualify to play in that game, yet they played for the national title and lost big time. Then, there was last year, where Kansas State upset Oklahoma. Of course, Oklahoma still got to the title game--and lost again!!! That gave us the split title. I seem to remember Texas being a candidate for a BCS bowl, but lost the chance because they had to give one slot to Kansas State. Is there still a rule that the Big 12 champion must play in a BCS game? I think there would be nothing funnier than seeing unranked Iowa State beat Oklahoma somehow (yeah, right) and go to a BCS bowl. Could this happen in theory?

Whoever wins the Big 12 will play in a BCS game, just like the conference champions from the ACC, Big 10, SEC, and Big East (I think). If Oklahoma plays for the national championship, then it will leave an open slot in the Fiesta Bowl which is the game that the Big 12 Champion goes to. (The exception being when the Fiesta bowl hosts the BCS championship and then the Big 12 goes to the Sugar bowl if not playing for the national title.)

Right now it all depends on how the BCS plays out over the next few weeks. If Oklahoma wins out, it will probably be OU vs. USC in the Orange Bowl. This would likely send Texas (if they beat Texas A&M on Friday) to the Fiesta Bowl to face Utah in the first BCS game with a contender from a non-BCS conference. Of course if A&M wins, the Big 12 will throw yet another monkey wrench into the BCS.

Texas won't see a BCS game, and Auburn assuming they win the SEC Championship Game will overtake the Sooners for #2 and play USC for the title. Sorry Big 12 Honks but your conference sucks. If Auburn can run the table and do it in the SEC...they should and will be in the title game.

They have them in the Champs Sports Bowl (formerly the Tangerine Bowl), which is for the 7th spot in the Big 12 overall...this makes some sense, as Iowa State (as all North teams are), would be behind all 5 South teams in the overall picture... but I suppose we just have to wait and see how the North wraps up (ISU hasn't clinched it, CU can still take it away if we beat Nebraska (which also means they would be out of the bowl picture for the first time in something like 35+ years) and ISU loses to Missouri)...and then theres the BCS buster hope from the North team, but lets face it, there wont be any miracles in Kansas City regardless of who plays Oklahoma there...

Disagree. I agree with KROC on this one. If Auburn runs the table in the SEC, clearly the best football conference in the land, they have earned, easily, the right to be in the championship game. It should be fought out between SC and OU who deserves to play Auburn, not Auburn having to justify being in-they've clearly, to this point, justified themselves being in the title game, more so than either USC or OU has.

And as KROC rightly points out, the Big 12 absolutely stinks this year. Someone mentioned Iowa State. They're a .500 team, playing for a RIGHT got to a big bowl? Simply because they're in the Big 12? Hell, there's 4 teams in the MAC that can take the Cyclones.

OU has had an easy time in a less-than-stellar conference; same with USC, since the Pac-10 is nothing to write home about. Auburn has gotten through the toughest conference in the nation unbeaten. They should be there, and it should come down to who plays THEM, not if they'll be in at all.

Isn't the BCS, by rule, required to take the Big 12 championship game winner? Regardless if its Oklahoma, or the two stinky north teams, Iowa State, or Colorado?

They are required to take thim in a BCS bowl, but that doesn't necessarily mean the national title game.  Smile

Yes, they do get an automatic invite.

The real joke? That the Big East, that has nothing "big" about it anymore, will get Boston College into the Sugar Bowl, because, despite the fact it is no longer a marquee conference, minus Miami and Virginia Tech, they still have an automatic BCS bid.

In '06 that changes, as mid majors, like Utah and Boise State, will get better chances to get into a BCS bowl, as the bigger conferences won't have the monopoly they have now on those 4 games.

Just announced that Clemson and USC (South Carolina) will not accept their Bowl Bids. I think a class move by Tommy Bowden and Lou Holtz.

Actually Tommy wanted Clemson to go bowling (doesn't suprise me)... USC (Lou) always hinted at refusing bowl invitations.

Now maybe we can play them in a practice... call it the Palmetto Bowl or something, only problem is USC won't have a coach  Smile.

Wow, what an unusual move on the part of the SC schools...I kinda feel bad for the seniors on those teams, but this should give two smaller schools a chance to get into a bowl now...

CFN has updated it a bit, now it has Bowling Green vs. CU in the Houston Bowl...that'd be a good one Falcon, we never get to see MAC action here...

Well as the only South Carolina alumni (to my knowledge), let me give my two cents. There's a feeling by a few rabid fans that both teams should have gone bowling and that this was just another expression of a highly emotional rivalry. Yes, suspend the players who threw punches or had some role in this, but don't punish the players who stood idly by. I'm not one of the people who holds that sentiment.

For starters, football is, IMO, a team sport. When a player jumps offsides, the entire team gets penalized. When a corner commits pass interference, he costs the entire team. In this instance, I feel that the punishment fits the crime and applaud USC and Clemson both for putting sportsmanship above money.

As for the coaching situation, when Lou had his press conference today (before the self-ban was announced), he stated that he hoped that the "new coach," (someone he was golf buddies with who had a winning tradition *cough Spurrier cough*) would take the helm for a bowl. It definitely would have been interesting to see what Spurrier could have done in a month's time.

My only regret in this is seeing Lou bow out like this. A coach of his stature definitely deserves a better send-off.
