So the matchups for all 368 bowls were announced last night; your BCS Title Game correctly pairs Big 12 champion Oklahoma with SEC winner Florida. The great state (cough) of Ohio is sending two teams to BCS bowls (Big Ten co-champ Ohio State will play Texas in the Fiesta Bowl, and Big East winner Cincinnati will play in the Orange Bowl against ACC winner Virginia Tech). Rounding out the BCS pairings are Penn State and USC in the Rose Bowl and upstart Mountain West champion Utah versus Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.
WAC champ Boise State finished 12-0 and got totally hosed by the BCS, settling for a bid to the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, to take on TCU. Notre Dame is going to get lei’d, two of the service academies received postseason bids, and you can see the rest here. Maybe someday that link will be to a wonderful playoff bracket that we can fill out and pretend to follow. Put that on your Christmas list…your 2014 Christmas list.
