CITRUS BOWL: Alabama -10 over Michigan State 1/1/11 1:00 PM ESPN Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium Orlando, FL (Michigan State) *You think the Spartans won't be ready to take it to former coach Nick $aban and show the nation they deserve a little more respect?
HALL OF FAME BOWL: Florida -7 over Penn State 1/1/11 1:00 PM ABC Raymond James Stadium Tampa, FL (Florida) * Doesn't Urban Meyer leaving coaching for "health reasons" seem like the perfect way to break up with his current girlfriend (Florida) with no negative repercussions, only so he can ultimately pursue an old crush (Notre Dame) after his soon to be coming rebound relationship (ESPN or CBS).
GATOR BOWL: Mississippi State -5 over Michigan 1/1/11 1:30 PM ESPN 2 Jacksonville Stadium Jacksonville, FL (Mississippi State) *The more interesting bet is whether or not Michigan's athletic department allows Rich Rodriguez to fly home on the team charter.
ROSE BOWL: TCU -2 over Wisconsin 1/1/11 4:30 PM ESPN Rose Bowl Pasadena, CA (Wisconsin)*Thanks to the BCS we are being treated to a Rose Bowl that features the Big Ten's second best team against the second best team in Texas.
FIESTA BOWL: Oklahoma -17 over Connecticut 1/1/11 8:30 PM ESPN University of Phoenix Stadium Glendale, AZ (Oklahoma) *Connecticut, who lost to Michigan this season, is playing in a BCS bowl game. That makes sense, right?

(I'm predicting that the Oregon Cheerleaders inspire the Ducks to come from behind to win the National Championship)
