Early BCS Bowl Predictions

So, a few weeks into the season let's pick BCS Bowl Games for something to talk about.

BCS National Championship: Nebraska vs. Oregon

Rose Bowl- Ohio State vs. Boise State

Sugar Bowl- Alabama vs. TCU

Orange Bowl- Miami(Fl.) vs. Arkansas

Fiesta Bowl- Oklahoma vs. West Virginia

I don't know how feasible this really is, just based off eyeball test and memory.

I really like this Nebraska team. So much talk about lack of offense going into the season, but it certainly seems like they have one. Oregon is putting up absurd amounts of points against admittedly weak opponents. But 72-0 and 69-0 is hard to deny. I think Nebraska ultimately prevails.

BCS National Championship: Alabama vs. Oregon/Nebraska

Rose Bowl- Ohio State vs. Oregon/Stanford

Sugar Bowl- Boise St vs. Nebraska/Florida

Orange Bowl- Miami(Fl.) vs. Pittsburgh

Fiesta Bowl- Oklahoma vs. TCU

I dont think Bama will have any problems getting back to the title game. I really like Oregon, but they have a few tough road games. Nebraska has a much more favorable schedule IMO.

ACC is almost a toss up. Miami schedule is brutal, but if Harris can limit the mistakes they will be tough to beat. I could also see FSU get there, I just think it was a hiccup against Oklahoma. I really hate to say this, but if NCSU stays healthy and gets passed FSU at home, I will replace NCSU over FSU

I think the Zeros are in the title game for sure, that offense just looks unstoppable. However this could easily change as they are known for starting slow/not showing up to road games....

Yea, I feel the wings could come off for the Ducks at any moment, but I'm still banking on them finding a way through it.

Fiesta gets the last pick this year. So expect the Big East Champ to play there unless WVU goes undefeated. Hey dont laugh.

BCS National Championship-Alabama vs Oregon

Rose Bowl-Ohio State vs Nebraska

Sugar Bowl-TCU vs. Boise State

Orange Bowl-Clemson vs. West Virginia

Fiesta Bowl-Arkansas vs. Texas

Alabama wins NC.

Boise is probably good enough to be in the Rose Bowl, but the Rose Bowl will not select them. Ohio State loses in conference as usual plays Nebraska in big seller Rose Bowl. Nebraska wins.

Boise and TCU play themselves so it doesn't matter if they win, they can't talk s.h.i.t. TCU wins

ACC champ vs Big East Champ. Clemson wins

2nd place SEC vs. 2nd place Big 12- best 2 money makers remaining. Arkansas wins.

Nebraska's probably got the easiest road it might ever have to the BCS game this year, but I'm not sure how easy it's going to be with a Freshman quarterback and road games at Okie State and A&M, plus Texas in Lincoln and then the Big XII game. I think our defense is up to it. Martinez will probably only continue to get better (which is scary), but at some point we're going to need to throw the ball more than we have been.

Last week was a huge test for us, and we kicked the poo outta Locker and Washington. No chance he's the #1 pick now. He looked horrible other than one drive in the 1st quarter. He later went on to say it was the best defense he's ever seen.

Here's what our defense has done against the last 6 current or future NFL QBs we've faced:

1st Rd pick Blaine Gabbert - 17/43 - 134 Yards - 0 TDs - 2 INT ( 2 Yards Rushing )

NFL bound Landy Jones - 26/58 - 245 Yards - 0 TDs - 5 INT ( -17 Yards Rushing )

3rd Rd pick Colt McCoy - 20/36 - 184 Yards - 0 TDs - 3 INT ( -20 Yards Rushing )

NFL bound Nick Foles - 9/29 - 48 Yards - 0 TDs - 1 INT ( -19 Yards Rushing )

NFL bound Nathan Enderle - 16/31 - 141 Yards - 1 TD - 4 INT ( -52 Yards Rushing )

(one-time) 1st Rd pick Jake Locker - 4/20 - 71 Yards - 1 TD - 2 INT ( 59 Yards Rushing )

That's absurd.

If this were to happen, do you think the BCS tries to take the easy way out with another TCU-Boise matchup?

If Ohio St goes to the Championship game The Rose has to take a NAQ (either Boise St or TCU).

For the games of January 2011 through 2014, the first year the Rose Bowl loses a team to the NCG and a team from the non-AQ group is an automatic qualifier, that non-AQ team will play in the Rose Bowl.
