BCS Title Game: Auburn vs. Oregon - an under-reported nugget: Nick Fairley has a Lagarrette Blount tattoo.
Allstate Sugar Bowl: LSU vs.Boise State – Sugar, Balls and Grass. And Balls.
Capitol One Bowl: Alabama vs. Ohio State – 80,000 fans spend money on hotel rooms and pork rinds making the selection committee happy, but then snooze through this completely mind-numbing matchup along with the rest of America. Tradition on display? Yes. Exciting football? puullleaze.
Cotton Bowl: Arkansas vs. Oklahoma – The Houston Nutt Bowl. Look it Up.
Outback Bowl: Mississippi State vs. Michigan State – Bizarro Dawgs against the Bizarro Spartans. Expect bizarro ratings (i.e. only measureable in the world of Htrae [NERD ALERT!])
Chick-fil-a Bowl: Anyone-But-South-Carolina-No-Matter-How-Much-We-Have-to-Torture-the-Logic (Publically, the committee will simply say “Florida”) vs. NC State.
Gator Bowl: South Carolina vs. Iowa- a long way to fall because a) The Capitol One marauding hordes selection committee loves Bama, b) The Outback has seen us enough already and would like to date around a little, and c) the marketing staff at the Chick-fil-a Bowl is immune to the genius of game birds in a poultry-based bowl.
Music City Bowl: Hey, look who ended up with seven wins! Red Lobster Cheesy Biscuits! Kentucky vs. Maryland! Exclamation points cannot rescue this boring matchup!!!!
Liberty Bowl: Tennessee vs. Houston [or somebody, we get nappy whenever Conference USA is on]. Actually a good result for the post-Kiffined Vols. At least the UT players will be scrubbed clean. That’s something, Memphis, its something.
Birmingham Bowl: Georgia vs Louisville – AJ Green spurned the hometown school for this? BBBWWWAAAAHHHHHAAAAAAAAA! /writhes on ground in unrelenting mirth.
