Rose Bowl: Iowa vs Oregon - Iowa has a few tough games left against Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Penn State. They will probably win 1 or 2 of them. The Rose Bowl commitee will probably take them because they like to stick with Big 10 teams. Oregon looks really good but I think they will slip up somewhere to Stanford, USC, UCLA, Oregon State, Cal etc. so they won't be a National Championship team. Instead they return to the Rose Bowl to take on the Hawkeyes.
Sugar Bowl: Arkansas vs Utah - Surprise! I think Arkansas has a great team and they will continue to learn and grow as a team. Bobby Petrino has a great QB in Ryan Mallet and I think he leads them to a 10-2 or 11-1 record this year. Utah beats TCU this year and goes undefeated. They return to the BCS for the third time to take on the Razorbacks. Utah does not have one stand out player, if you look at the statistics, they play multiple people and it seems like half the team touches the ball in one game. There is my bold prediction for the day.
Orange Bowl: Miami(FL) vs Stanford - The ACC does not have a clear leader for the moment. Miami clearly has the best team available. (North Carolina still has half their defense suspended) Jacory Harris will probably get in a grove towards the end of the season and help his team win an ACC championship. Stanford is led by Andrew Luck. They seem to be almost flying under the radar, except for the game today vs Oregon. If they win today they will be the front runner for the Pac 10 but I think they finish behind Oregon but still in the top 10 for the season.
Fiesta Bowl: Nebraska vs Boise State - Led by Taylor Martinez, the Corn Huskers will be a force in the Big 12 this season. The Big 10 will get to deal with them next season. Nebraska will probably lose 1 or 2 games but enough to still win the Big 12 North, seeing as they do not have much competition in the North. Then they will win the Big 12 Championship. Boise, you're of luck again. You go undefeated but you still finish 3rd. Good thing you are switching conferences.
National Championship Game: Alabama vs Ohio State - Probably the two best teams in the country. Mark Ingram vs Terrelle Pryor. This is a game of two of the greatest programs in history. Two teams that play the same style of offense. Alabama has a tough schedule left but if they can make it through the next few games, it should be easy the rest of the games. Ohio State has their last 3 games to make it through and Wisconsin next week.
This is mid season predictions. Look for new predictions in 2 weeks, for updated opinions.

#1 Florida vs Vanderbilt - Okay, really? Do I have to go into detail. Florida SHOULD win this game pretty easily with out much trouble and Tebow should have a big day. Florida 45-7
#2 Texas vs UCF - UCF has no chance. Easily said. Colt McCoy has a big day and the backups eventually come in, probably in the second half because Texas is up by so much. Texas 49-6
#3 Alabama vs #9 LSU - A very good game. LSU's season depends on this game so they can go to the SEC championship game. Alabama is the only team in there way. Jordan Jefferson has a big day, BUT Mark Engram has a bigger day. Alabama wins. Alabama 27-20
#4 Cincinnati vs Conneticut - UCONN is still not playing well since the loss of one of their players and Tony Pike is practicing so I am going to have to go with Cincinnati but watch out. Close. 10 points or less. Cincinnati 31-21
#5 Boise State at Louisiana Tech - Boise State wins. It is the WAC. Boise is the only good team this year and possibly Fresno but they beat them already. Boise wins big. Boise 56-7
#6 TCU at San Diego State - TCU wins in a blowout. It will be by atleast 30 points. TCU is my pick to go to a BCS game. TCU 42-10
#7 Oregon at Stanford - Watch out Oregon. Stanford has Tony Gerhart and after such and emotional win, this could be a trap game for Oregon. Very Close. Comes down to the 4th quarter but Oregon pulls it out. Oregon 31-27
#8 Iowa vs Northwestern - Iowa is going to give there coach a heart attack this year. Knowing them, Northwestern keeps it close in the first half but Iowa pulls of some magic and wins again. Iowa 42-31
#10 Georgia Tech vs Wake Forest - Wake Forest got unluckly last week and unfortunantly they aren't going to have any luck this week either. Georgia Tech wins 35-10
#12 USC at Arizona State - USC is angry this week and puts on an offensive show case. Not even close. Arizona State is like a punching bag this week. USC 52-10
#13 Houston at Tulsa - Houston doesn't pull of a late win this week.... They just win by putting up a ton of points. Tulsa, your going to lose. Houston 56-35
#14 Pittsburg at Syracuse - Pitt has been playing well and it doesn't stop here. Greg Paulus puts up a fight but not for long. Pitt win 32-17
#15 Ohio State at #11 Penn State - I think this will be the best game. This is a toss up. I think Ohio State comes into this game with a chip on there should and play with a ton of intensity. Penn State has to win this game to even have a chance at a Rose Bowl birth. Ohio State 24-20
#16 Miami (FL) vs Virgainia - Miami, you won't have to convert a 4 &16. you win 35-7. No need to worry about a late comeback from Jacory Harris.
#17 Utah vs New Mexico - New Mexico has too much controversy around them. That wouldn't matter anyways. Utah doesn't even have to try. Utah wins 48-7
#18 Oklahoma State at Iowa State - Iowa State is 5-3 and I think they will put up a good fight but Oklahoma State pulls it out. Oklahoma State should be on upset alert though. Oklahoma State wins in a close one. 31-30.
#19 Notre Dame IDLE - Notre Dame can sit back and just watch the comptetion and hope they make BCS
#20 Oklahoma at Nebraska - Oklahoma goes down. Nebraska and Bo Pelini take out Bob Stoops and the Sooners. Nebraska wins on a last second field goal though. 30-28
#21 Arizona vs Washinton State - Washington State is horrible. Arizona wins easily. Arizona 38-9
#22Virginia Tech at East Carolina - Virginia Tech wants revenge on East Carolina from last year, and they get it. The Hokies and Ryan Williams win big. Tech 38-6
#23 California vs Oregon State - Oregon State has played well and I think well enought to pull the upset. Javid Best has a good game but not good enough. Oregon State wins 27-17
#24 Wisconsin at Indiana - Wisconsin doesn't let Indiana hang around like Iowa did. They win, but closer than the experts think. Wisconsin 31-17
#25 BYU at Wyoming - Max Hall keeps BYU from getting upset but it is not even close. BYU wins 45-7

I am a loyal Ohio State fan but sometimes I get annoyed with Tressel, Pryor, and the play calling. But something I can get really annoyed with is fans. They get so eager to post something that makes no sense or something just to stir up some other fans. Right now all I see on the college football board is Ohio State is going to beat Iowa, Boise State is a fake, Oregon should play for the National Championship, Cincinnati is great, Tebow Tebow Tebow, and Rich Rod should be fired. Now I am going to talk about all of them in order I said them.

So we are about midway through the season so it is probably about time i update my preseason picks. Lets start off with the Rose Bowl:
USC vs Iowa
USC is a good team, but worthy of Rose Bowl? Probably not but I dont see anyone else beating them unless of an upset. USC is starting to improve so they will probably make the Rose Bowl. Iowa on the other hand is a guess. The Big 10 is so messed up right now that everyone but Illinois still has a chance to win the Big 10. Iowa is undefeated so that is why I chose them even though I think they will lose atleast one game.
Florida vs Boise State
Yes all Florida fans. You are not in the BCS game. Alabama will beat you. Your team does not look that good and Alabama does. Tim Tebow has not played well at all this year. Now Boise is a team that SHOULD go undefeated but will they? I don't know. If they do they will make a BCS game. Boise is good but wouldn't last in any good divison.
Penn State vs Virginia Tech
My two at-large teams and they are good ones. Penn State will only lose one more game at most and Virginia Tech is a good team. I would really like to see these two teams play in the fiesta bowl. This would be a heck of a game.
Miami (FL) vs Cincinnati
This could be the best matchup in all of the games. The teams are fairly even. The only difference is Cincinnati has more expierence and has been to a BCS bowl. I look for Tony Pike to come back and play well. I also look for Jacory Harris to lead his team to the Orange Bowl.
BCS National Championship:
Alabama vs Texas
The two best teams in my opinion. Alabama has been the most dominant team in the nation and no one is going to stop Texas in the Big 12. Look for these two teams to meet come January.
