Fresno is a tough team, but they didn't look that good this year. I think Florida can pull off an upset, but Sooners will beat Mizzou, thus placing either a Bama-Sooner or Florida-Sooner championship, regardless I'm going to have to go with the SEC.

Didn't Hawaii make noise about being undefeated and everything is so unfair blah blah blah blah last year and then get totally creamed when they played a real team?

A lot of teams have made noise in the past that they were not given a fair shot and then got creamed. Hawaii was certainly not the first lopsided bowl game.

Firstly, Boise State belongs behind Utah. There is no question about it, no argument. So if Boise State receives a bowl bid, it should not, and will not, be at the expense of leaving Utah out.

Whether or not BSU should receive a bowl bid is up to speculation. I dont know of any team worth mentioning that BSU has beat this year. Going undefeated in the WAC means nothing. I would rather see TCU over BSU in a BCS game considering TCU was beaten by two teams that are ranked in the top 8.

I'm frustrated with the BCS once again this season. I'm a USC fan and whether they are undefeated, have one loss or two. The one thing even the people who hate the west coast can't deny is the fact that USC is very hard to beat in January. This year we have one of the best defenses ever put together in college football. Along with Alabama's defense I would like to see a battle of two good teams with bonofide defense...

But here we go again, Oklahoma will get pounded by who ever wins the SEC championship in my opinion, and USC will pound on Penn State.. Why does Ohio State and Oklahoma always get the red carpet rolled out when they have one loss??

Had USC not lost to Oregon State, a team that has lost to every other ranked opponent this year, USC would be in the big game.

But better yet, if we had a playoff, USC would be in it.
