Why couldn't the remaining BCS Bowl games be #3 vs. #4, #5 vs. #6, and so on? I guess b/c that's too logical and lead to too many great games and finishes.

Go Wolfpack, beat them Rutgers Scarlet Knights, right beoWULF?
Congrats on the strong finish, but your team's winning streak will come to an end on 12/29. Go RU!

this is the way it should be but I guess they would rather place the #7 team against a #20 team to give that #7 team more of a chance at a win.

I guess its kinda like NCAA basketball where they put the 2 seed team against a 15 seed team

The two seed in the college basketball earns the right to play weaker competition. It is called a bracket. They have those in all the pro sports, such as the NFL, where the team with the best record gets the top seed and earns the right to play the weakest teams first. It is not even close to being related to the BCS bowl selection.

"They" don't arrange the bowls either. There is not a BCS committee that arranges these match-ups. The bowls themselves pick the teams they want in their bowl.

But the thing is that it's not even best vs. worst, 2nd best vs. 2nd worst, etc. match-ups. It's kind of random, really.

But still, some human(s) make the decision to decide on the Bowl game(s). The problem is what logic do they use? I know, not much.

Man I cant wait for the bowls to start, it sucks having college football every weekend and now the break. Some early Bowls im interested in are BYU vs AZ and Hawaii vs Notre Dame. I would LOVE to see Notre Dame finish 6-7. I also cant wait to see the Holiday bowl between Ok St and Oregon, plenty of points in that one.

I think I'm gonna go to the Armed Forces Bowl at The Carter.

Houston is going to play in it so I'll have someone to cheer for.
