    Some of these match ups are crap it is why I have given up on the Bowl Games over the years and quit watching them. All the tie in to conferences keep us from having better Bowl Games.

    Really Florida vs Louisville when something Like Florida vs Standford would have been way better.

    Georgia vs Nebraska yawn Georgia vs Florida St been a more compelling match up.

    Oregon St vs a South Carolina

    Mix it up how ever but man games like that would have been more compelling then the crap they did.

    Northern Ill vs FL St yawn
    SC vs Michigan yawn

    Just have a playoff system like the FCS, and call all the playoff games "bowl" games. And be done with it.

    For such a good product that is college football to be ruined by the BCS and the bowl system is just sad, and takes my interest away from it.

    There are not many games on the list that I am interested in. The championship game should be good but the Fiesta Bowl (K.State vs Oregon) is the only other BCS game worth watching. I am excited about the Cotton Bowl (A&M vs Oklahoma), I would like to see how the Aggies perform against the best Big XII team. The Holiday Bowl (Baylor vs UCLA) is a good match up of teams that win in completely different ways. The Alamo Bowl (Texas vs Oregon St) is interesting as well, Oregon St had a good season and present Texas with a solid opponent.

    The rest of the SEC and Big 12 games are against underwhelming opponents or just aren't exciting enough for me to care about.

    Well, glad TCU at least got a bowl game after all the crap they went through over the last year.

    Hopefully they can some how replenish all the talent they lost between the NFL and the kids getting themselves in trouble.

    I honestly don't think Kansas State is the best team in the Big XII. They won a close one at Oklahoma but I think the Sooners would win that game 4 out of 5 times. The loss to Baylor was just embarrassing, it wasn't even close. They are officially co-champs, K-State gets the Fiesta Bowl because of the head to head win.

    And OU would lose 4 out of 5 times if the game was played in Manhattan. Co-champs is about right. I give the slight edge to K-State as the best team this season in the BigXII

    I know some do not like seeing all these bowl games, myself I'm a football junky and I know it is all about to come to an end for another season so bring on all the bowl games you got, I'm in heaven watching as many as I can.

    Many of the minor bowl game end up being very competitive and entertaining, they are not playing for a championship but it is football and the matchups are still interesting to me.

    The second tier bowls are intriguing this year, OU and A&M, Oregon State & Texas, UCLA and Baylor.

    Those are good matchups and should be fun to watch. As I said I'm a football junky, I want as many games as I can have before the season ends.

    I hear many who complain about it but I don't get it, if you love football then sit back watch and enjoy. If you don't like those small bowl games then don't watch it :D
