    Colorado state gets Idaho in Boise
    Wyoming play byu in the poinsettia bowl in San Diego
    Hawaii gets mid Tennessee state in Hawaii

    honestly feel that one of the fiesta/peach bowls should be switched with the rose/sugar bowls next year or onwards.

    I really don't like how in the 2016/19/22 etc. seasons everything is pre-determined with tie-ins with the cotton bowl getting the left overs.

    Admittedly, the cotton imo is a more prestigious bowl than The orange/peach bowls, but I'd prefer to know there could be 2 destinations you can go to rather than getting the worst at large team there is.

    Wow this is easily my favourite time of the year. Going to be a bit annoying this year actually having a job and commitments so there'll be a few games on the IQ hard drive I think. Summer, Christmas, Bowl season, NFL leaning towards playoffs - I'm excited.

    Michigan Vs FSU
    OK State Vs Colorado
    A&M Vs K-State
    Nebraska Vs Tennessee
    Houston Vs SD State
    Miami Vs West Virginia

    look like the picks of the non playoff bowls.

    Boise are going to kill Baylor, Oklahoma will smash another SEC team in a bowl game and Stoops will enjoy that.
    I dont think Penn State will do much against USC, wont be as bad as Stanford Vs Iowa from this year.

    Memphis Vs WKU could be a good mid-week bowl

    Man I love all the big 6 match ups!

    For all the debate in the championship week thread, I'm really happy with what we ended up with. I don't think anyone is going to be able to beat Alabama, so I'm glad that we've got some great match ups on the way to the national championship game.

    Ny6 predictions for me right now

    Orange
    Michigan 42
    Florida state 24

    Cotton
    Western Michigan 10
    Wisconsin 49

    Sugar
    Oklahoma 38
    Auburn 17

    Rose
    USC 38
    Penn State 28

    Fiesta
    Ohio State 35
    Clemson 38

    Peach (2OT)
    Alabama 41
    Washington 38

    Richo. Before you ask why a team who got smashed by USC can push you after what you did to USC. Look at petersens history. When you give him time to prepare, more often than not he always did well out coaching his opponent. I wouldn't at all be shocked if Washington play a different defence than we've seen all year (like what kwatkowski (don't ask me how it's spelt.) did in 2009 when Boise changed to a 4-2-5 just for the bowl. And with a months prep, they can have an offence which can keep Alabama on their toes.

    Alabama does have superior talent hence why I have them winning in overtime. But I do feel Chris Peterson will outcoach nick saban here.

    I just hope I'm wrong with the fiesta bowl because Ohio state-Alabama will be much more entertaining than Clemson-Alabama.

    How I'd rank potential title games

    Alabama - Ohio state
    Clemson - Washington
    Alabama - Clemson
    Ohio state - Washington (Washington won't win this. IF they take down Bama, they're too beat up and won't have enough time to scheme an entirely different game plan capable of winning this game too)

    I would add Louisville V LSU to that list.

    Great to see the U back playing in a decent game with West Virginia

    I think LSU are going to get beat. they cant move the ball, and have not faced a QB anywhere close to Jackson.

    Will be interesting to see how Trubisky goes for NC against Stanford.

    I'm calling the PAC 12 to have a good bowl season..
    Stanford
    USC
    Washington State
    Colorado
    Utah
    All to win they're bowl games and Washington to push Bama.

    I honestly think Bama is going to go down!! That Husky D is seriously badass.

    Clemson to get up. Can't believe how bad JT looks sometimes.

    Penn St/USC will either be a nail bitter or an absolute smashing Trojans way.

    Wolverines to mince the noles. It's the real combine for our 50 million seniors we have on our roster (next year is going to be so young).

    Bama will cover the spread easy. Unless Washington is ahead by multiple scores at the half bama won't lose

    I agree that Alabama will beat Washington pretty handily.

    I'm most looking forward to Clemson & Ohio State, cos I reckon that's a really interesting stylistic match up.

    I'm also really keen on the Rose Bowl. I've really enjoyed Penn State's redemption story, and I think college football is much, much better off when Penn St and USC have strong teams. Even though I've only really been following college football for about 10 years, I also have a real soft spot for the Rose Bowl. That Michigan St/Stanford game a couple of seasons ago remains one of the best games of football - college or pro - that I can remember watching. After all that time watching college ball I still don't have a team, but the Spartans and Cardinal are the closest I've come to a team choosing me based on that game.

    Mike Golic is going to call the Pinstripe bowl with his son.

    Herbie and Fowler are calling the Ohio State v Clemson game. Joe Tess taking ever from Nessler in the other playoff game.

    Will miss Nessler now he is at CBS. And miss his call of. you are now looking live at the Rose Bowl.

    Mark May is sent to Hawaii

    That's awesome, I struggle to tell their voices apart when they are on Mike & Mike together.

    Pitt V Northwestern will be a decent game. They should get Greenie in too, pretty sure he is s a Northwestern alumni.

    Ryan Rucco is doing the Play by Play on the game. if it was Greeny and Golic it would be a nice throwback to the old Week 1MNF late game when they called that, that was back when Tony Kornhiser still called games when he wasnt suspended.

    Rece Davis calling the Baylor V Boise game with Pollack and Galloway.

    Mack Brown calling the Colorado Vs OK state game, could turn into Big12 Story time with Mack Brown

    McDonough doing the radio call for the Championship game, but no TV calls prob because ESPN now has a Wild Card NFL game

    Actually its Brent Mustburger who i remember calling all the Rose Bowl games with the "You are looking live" line. He is doing the Sugar bowl this year.

    Nothing on how many Gameday's will be done over bowl season

    North dokota state
    Eastern Washington
    Youngstown state

    Intriguing.

    2 of the 3 teams to have beaten an fbs top 25 team. My favourite fcs team and a team coached by Pelini.

    Can't complain about any of them winning.

    Jackson wins the Heisman despite trying his best to throw it away, just lucky no one else wanted it enough.
