College Football 2012 Bowl Game Projections

BCS Bowl Games

BCS Title Game: Alabama [SEC Champ] vs. Southern California [P12 Champ] Could equally insert LSU or Oregon here, but just for preseason predictions’ sake…

Fiesta: Oklahoma [B12 Champ] vs. Wisconsin [B1G AL] Watchable.

Orange: Florida State [ACC Champ] vs. Louisville [BE Champ] Another irrelevant Orange Bowl.

Rose: Michigan [B1G Champ] vs. Oregon [P12 AL] De’Anthony Thomas and Denard Robinson on the same field.

Sugar: LSU [SEC AL] vs. Texas [B12 AL] The reaction from Sugar Bowl officials will look something like this.

Major Conference Bowl Games

Alamo: TCU [B12] vs. Stanford [P12]

BBVA Compass: Rutgers [BE] vs. Auburn [SEC]

Belk: Cincinnati [BE] vs. Georgia Tech [ACC]

Buffalo Wild Wings: Oklahoma State [B12] vs. Illinois [B10]

Capital One: Arkansas [SEC] vs. Michigan State [B10] Would shape up for one hell of an offense vs. defense matchup.

Chick-fil-A: Georgia [SEC] vs. Virginia Tech [ACC]

Cotton: South Carolina [SEC] vs. West Virginia [B12] There is a 95 percent chance the HBC abandons the game plan and attempts to wizard duel Holgo. I’m in.

Gator: Purdue [B1G] vs. Tennessee [SEC]

Holiday: Washington [P12] vs. Kansas State [B12]

Kraft Fight Hunger: Washington State [P12] vs. Navy [IND] A clash of opposites, with potentially a lot of scoring.

Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas: Texas Tech [B12] vs. Iowa [B10]

Music City: Virginia [ACC] vs. Vanderbilt [SEC]

Outback: Florida [SEC] vs. Nebraska [B1G] Decent enough matchup, though it will be interspersed with endless highlights from this game.

Pinstripe: Baylor [B12] vs. Pitt [BE]

Russell Athletic: South Florida [BE] vs. Clemson [ACC] Excellent stage for Clemson to again embarrass the ACC against a Big East opponent.

Sun: N.C. State [ACC] vs. Utah [P12]

Major/Minor Conference Bowl Games

Beef O’Brady’s: UConn [BE] vs. SMU [C-USA]

Independence: Wake Forest [ACC] vs. Mississippi State [SEC]

Liberty: Missouri [SEC] vs. Southern Miss [C-USA]

Little Caesars Pizza: Ohio [MAC] vs. Arkansas State [Sun Belt] Could be a sneaky good offensive matchup with Guz Malzahn and Mickey Tettleton’s son.

MAACO Las Vegas: California [P12] vs. Boise State [MWC] Northern California native Chris Petersen takes a long look at the potentially vacant Cal job after this game.

Military: Bowling Green [MAC] vs. Notre Dame [IND] A tough schedule keeps Notre Dame out of the BCS mix. Without a bowl tie-in, they take a tumble.

New Mexico: UCLA [P12] vs. Fresno State [MWC]

TicketCity: Northwestern [B1G] vs. Iowa State [B12] Should be renamed the Bloody Mary Bowl.

Minor Conference Bowl Games

Armed Forces: East Carolina [C-USA] vs. Wyoming [MWC]

GoDaddy.Com: Western Mich [MAC] vs. FIU [Sun Belt] Another audition for Mario Cristobal.

Famous Idaho Potato: Northern Illinois [MAC] vs. Louisiana Tech [WAC] Will Sonny Dykes still be there for this one?

Hawaii: Hawaii [MWC] vs. Houston [C-USA]

New Orleans: Tulsa [C-USA] vs. Louisiana-Lafayette [Sun Belt]

Poinsettia: Nevada [MWC] vs. BYU [IND]
