BCS Bowl Games Set: Time for the debates to get started

Posted by in College Football on December 3rd, 2007 | Comment »

Here is the BCS Bowl Game schedule (Final BSC standings):

BCS Championship:
No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 2 LSU
January 7, 2008, 8 p.m. FOX

My take: I think this is who has to be in the national championship. I would argue that it should be LSU v. Oklahoma because the are, in my opinion, the two best teams in the NCAA and would make a better national championship, but unfortunately the computers like 11-1 teams more than 11-2 regardless of the way Oklahoma had lost game #2 (an injured quarterback and a controversial penalty call that cost them the game). Ohio State played a mickey-mouse schedule and it’s ridiculous that they get to sit back in the last 2 weeks of the season and watch teams lose so they could sneak in. There needs to be a Big 10 title game in the future, they just need to find 1 more team to join their conference, or at least add another game to the schedule!

Rose Bowl:
No. 7 USC vs. No. 13 Illinois
January 1, 2008, 4:30 p.m. ABC

My take: With the Rose Bowl, you have to keep it Pac 10 vs. Big 10, so 9-3 Illinois gets in by default. It’s too bad it can’t be Ohio State vs. USC with the national championship between LSU and Oklahoma.

Fiesta Bowl:
No. 4 Oklahoma vs. No. 9 West Virginia
January 2, 2008, 8 p.m. FOX

My take: This is a game I’m really excited to watch. There should be a lot of offense.

Sugar Bowl:
No. 5 Georgia vs. No. 10 Hawaii
January 1, 2008, 8:30 p.m. FOX

My take: Hawaii may be 12-0, but I’m not drinking the Cool Aid yet. The Boise State team that played Oklahoma last year was much better than this Hawaii team. I think Georgia will straight up dominate them. I’m waiting to see what the spread on this game will be. If it’s around 10 points, I would take the Bulldogs.

Orange Bowl
No. 3 Virginia Tech vs. No. 8 Kansas
January 3, 2008, 8 p.m. FOX

My take: The Sugar Bowl isn’t too exciting and neither is this game. I would rather see Virginia Tech against Georgia and you could throw in Hawaii vs. Kansas as the default bowl game, but I guess that isn’t how these things work.

The rest of the bowl games:

Honorable mention goes to the Capital One Bowl, which is probably the only other Bowl game worth watching. It will be between Michigan and Florida. It takes place January 1 at 1:00, and will be seen on ABC.
