Lets go Bowling
December 5, 2008 - Michael Palmer
The BCS Selection Show is this Sunday night (Dec. 7) at 8 PM on FOX. While the standings are not final, it is probably safe to say either Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas or Florida will be the 2008 college football national champion. Despite the current rankings, the projectors are across the board with Florida and Oklahoma in the BCS National Championship. Except Mark Schlabach of ESPN who has Texas and Alabama battling for number one. Texas against Florida or Oklahoma and Alabama are two other possible options for the title game card.
The best news was Oregon State losing to Oregon, because the BCS door opens for our Big Ten runner-up Ohio State. If you surf the sports web, CBS, ESPN and Sports Illustrated have the Buckeyes in the 2009 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, 1/5/09 in Glendale, AZ against Texas, only the College Football News differs, predicting a bold move by the selection committee to put Boise State in the Fiesta and then slotting Ohio State against Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.
Penn State will travel to the grand daddy of them all, The Rose Bowl to face USC, I for one am glad we do not get the rematch with the Trojans.
Again all of the predictions are forecasting Boston College and Cincinnati in the Orange Bowl. The Sugar Bowl is a different story, the big three are going with Alabama against Utah but as we mentioned CFN is looking for Oho State and ‘Bama and ESPN‘s Schlabach is going for Florida and Utah in New Orleans.
Still some good college football to be played this weekend before the decisions can be made. Remember Texas lost the Big 12 South tiebreaker, so if Missouri beats Oklahoma, could that let USC sneak in past Texas and move Texas Tech ahead of the Longhorns? Nothing is set in stone, and with this being the year of the upset, stay tuned.
