2012 BCS Predictions 11/1

Rose Bowl: Nebraska vs Oregon - I see Oregon beating Stanford in a close game. It is really a toss up in my mind though. I think Oregon will come out of the Pac 12 as the winner and they will get the automatic spot in the BCS. Nebraska is a shot in the dark. Wisconsin has 2 losses in the Big Ten. Ohio State has 2 loses. Penn State has 1 but still has to play Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. Illinois has 2. I think Nebraska will emerge from the dust at the winner.

Sugar Bowl: LSU vs Stanford - This would be subject to change depending on who wins the big matchup this weekend. Whoever loses will end up in this game in my opinion. The Sugar Bowl also gets an At-Large bid and I think they would like to bring Stanford into this game. This would be a very interesting matchup because LSU has one of the best defenses matched up against one of the best QBs in college football.

Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs Virginia Tech - The Big East is falling apart and guess what? Everyone still sucks. West Virginia always seems to be able to pull out some late games and win the conference. I'm not picking against them. I know Clemson is winning the conference but I have picked against Beamer before and I was wrong, so I don't pick against Virginia Tech anymore. They always fly under the radar and they are doing so again.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs Oklahoma - Wouldn't the Fiesta Bowl love to get this rematch? Boise State will probably go undefeated and once again, get shut out of the National Championship. Oklahoma has looked good for most of the year and more than likely they will once again end up in a BCS game.

BCS National Championship Game: Alabama vs Oklahoma State - If Alabama wins this weekend then more than likely they should end up in the National Championship game. They have played the normal Nick Saban Alabama way. Running the ball and defense. Oklahoma State is the exact opposite. Oklahoma State has the potential to score 35 points in the matter of 4 minutes. If this game happened we would see one of the most explosive offenses against one of the best defenses. It would be an exciting game for sure.

Pre Week 8 BCS Predictions

Rose Bowl: Michigan State vs Nebraska - Michigan State is probably one team that no one expected to be 7-0 at this point. The rest of their season is fairly easy but I believe they slip up somewhere but still get an 11-1 record, good enough to put them in the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1966. Nebraska's hope for an undefeated season where smashed when Texas showed them up. They don't win the Big 12 in my book though, but an At-Large bid is still good enough.

Orange Bowl: West Virgina vs Miami(FL) - West Virginia is still the only team in the Big East that is even any good. They have no competition and should win the conference easily. Miami is working on coming back this season. Jacory Harris is going to need to play a lot better than he has been the past few weeks though. They might be back in the top 25 this week. The ACC is still wide open and could change next week and probably will. Who knows, maybe Virginia Tech gets back in the BCS.

Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs Utah - I am still sticking with this. Alabama is a very good team and I think they may lose 1 more game. They are a very balanced team and Mark Ingram alone is a diffference maker. Like I have been saying, I am calling Utah to beat TCU and go undefeated. TCU has Air Force in two weeks then the big show down with TCU. I'm calling it, Utah over TCU.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs Oklahoma - Boise, again, you are not going to the National Championship game. Try again next week. You are a very balanced team but your schedule is what is killing you. If you would be playing in the MWC this year then I would have no problem putting you in the National Championship, but you aren't. Oklahoma plays Missouri this week and they seem to be the front runner to win the Big 12 at this point. They may have to play Nebraska in the Big 12 Championship game, but other than that, Oklahoma State is the only big game left this season for them.

BCS National Championship Game: Oregon vs Auburn - Oregon has not shown much of a weakness all season. There is nothing that has shown me that they are going to be beat this season. LaMicheal James has been incredible and he seems impossible to stop. Auburn who is led by Cam Newton just won a shootout vs Arkansas. They have a big game vs LSU next week and the last week of the season vs Alabama. They should win their other games without a problem. We shall see how things turn out in the coming weeks.

Post Week 6 BCS Predictions

Rose Bowl: Ohio State vs Stanford - Ohio State looks tough but with a game vs Wisconsin coming up this week it will be the first true test. I think they lose 1 game along the line but still win the Big Ten. Stanford makes it into the Rose Bowl as an At-Large bid seeing as I believe they will finish they year with 1 or 2 loses this season.

Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs Michigan State - Yes this sounds messed up. Yes I said Michigan State, not Michigan. Am I losing it? I might be. The Big East has no clear leader right now seeing as Syracuse is in front right now with a 4-1 record. West Virginia is clearly the best team in this conference but will they play like it? Michigan State might have their year this year. They are playing well and have made it through the tough part of their schdule. They also don't play Ohio State. The only really tough game for them left is at Iowa in a few weeks. If they make it through that, they could possibly go undefeated.

Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs Utah - A rematch of a few years ago. I know this is Utah, I think they will beat TCU when they play them this seaosn and Utah goes undefeated. Utah has shown they can play with the big boys and now they are on their way to the Pac 10. Alabama with 1 loss is probably the best 1 loss team in the nation. I would still pick them to beat almost any team in the country.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs Nebraska - Boise, your still getting shut out. You didn't prove me anything this year. You showed me you can beat Oregon State whose 3-2 and that you can beat a team that James Madison can too. Either way, your starting rank gets you close to a National Championship game. Too bad you don't play in a good conference. Nebraska is my pick to win the Big 12. They have been dominant in almost all of their games and Taylor Martinez has looked very good all season.

BCS National Championship Game: Oregon vs Auburn - I know this is a bold prediction and I am not sure what has been going through my mind. Oregon is a legit contender this season. They will probably win the Pac 10 and could very well go undefeated. Auburn has been very good, but they have a few big games left. If they beat Arkansas, LSU, and Alabama, they deserve to go to the National Championship game but a lot can change between now and then.
