The one bowl match-up everyone knew for certain was the BCS Championship game, a classic tilt between two of the most historic programs in the country, the No. 1 Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide. 'Bama has been set as the early 9.5 point favorite, but I can't imagine that sticking. The Irish are a much better team than that; if they don't win there is no way they lose by more than three.
Beyond that game there were a lot of good match-ups, some not so good ones, and some that could be considered down right bad. There has bee a lot of discussion on how teams are selected, and it would not be surprising if there was a lot more during the entire Bowl Season.
No matter what, the slate is set with the first game, the New Mexico Bowl, scheduled to kick off on December 15 at 1 PM ET with the Nevada Wolf Pack taking on the Arizona Wildcats. Thirty three games later, the BCS Championship kicks off at 8:30 PM ET at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
So guys, set your DVRs; it's time to go bowling!
