I'd love to be at that Liberty Bowl, two of the best offenses in the country. Its a shame we can't see them against their BCS brethren. I think Iowa vs. LSU will be a pretty good game, depending on what teams show up. If the Iowa team that played ASU shows up, LSU will walk all over them. If LSU has its normal qb play the game will be close and Iowa might have an edge. But if Marcus Randall plays like he did against Arkansas, LSU will roll. I think LSU's defense will shut down Iowa, the matter is if the offense scores any points.

Most of the other Bowl games will wait until next week to make announcement as they're tied into the BCS selections and who wins on Saturday. Any major upset; Oklahoma-Colorado, USC-UCLA, Auburn-Tenn., and California-Southern Mississippi (rescheduled because of one of the hurricanes) will change everything.

Right now assuming that the there are no upsets on Saturday, either California or the University of Texas are going to be left out of a BCS game. Most likely it will be Texas (again) and they'll go to the Cotton Bowl as the Rose Bowl will certainly take California. If California loses, then Texas would get a BCS spot and Texas A&M could get the Cotton Bowl. If not, A&M will probably end up in the Holiday Bowl.

Of course we all know that the Big 12 Championship has a way to totally screwing up the BCS almost every year so we'll have to wait and see if Oklahoma will pull it out or implode like they did last year.

However, the best Bowl game of all, the MPC Computers Bowl (formerly known as the Humanitarian Bowl) will be Virginia most likely facing Fresno State. Just have to love watching a game played on the Smurf Turf.

Thanks man. Too bad it's on a Wednesday, or I'd go down to MOB and watch my Alma Mater.  Big thumbs up
