    I do not have Iowa State winning over West Virginia as Mr. Blum and Mr. Williams do. Probably because they were busy in Lawrence and traveling home and did not see Tayvon Austin running all over OU. I did watch that performance and although I would love to project an ISU win on Friday, I cannot. For the record, I think winner of the game is Holiday Bowl bound.

    Why does everyone think Baylor's going to beat Tech? They still have no defense , last night was a major fluke IMO

    I saw the Clemson vs. South Carolina game...

    I'm predicting South Carolina to beat Clemson, so Oklahoma will get the last at-large bid. If Clemson wins, my whole projections will need changed (literally almost half of it).

    In the SEC, I have Alabama and LSU getting in the BCS Bowls...I also think Florida St. beats Florida. If Florida wins, they take LSU's spot and the SEC will need changed.

    I think S Carolina will have to be taken there...Florida and S Car I suppose could be switched in my projections, but I think the Capital One Bowl would pick Florida over S Carolina. Also, South Carolina played in that bowl last year, so it would be tough to put them in the Cap One bowl again.

    The Pac-12 will be interesting. Could affect ISU. I got Stanford winning the Pac-12 Championship with Oregon getting an at-large. UCLA is a pretty good team though so won't be easy.

    If USC can beat Notre Dame, they will have enough wins to jump Oregon St. in the bowl order, meaning the Holiday Bowl would easily pick them over Oregon St. if available.

    The Cotton Bowl is almost a given unless Texas beats KSU...then things get interesting.

    I do have Baylor beating Texas Tech, but my prediction really has more to do with the Red Raiders spiraling downward in what is becoming a pattern.

    I also am predicting S Carolina to beat Clemson. I have Florida State over Florida.

    The Chick-Fil-A Bowl has a lot more choices on the SEC side than on the ACC side. If Clemson is not a BCS team, they will be in that game. There is no way that will be a rematch with S Carolina. I could see ways that it could be Miss State, Florida or even Georgia - but not S Carolina unless Florida State gets upset in ACC title game and the Noles go to Atlanta

    I have now totally flipped on the Pac 12 and the BCS. Whereas a week ago, I didn't think there was any way that league could have 2 in the BCS - now I think it is very likely, unless Stanford loses to UCLA next week and Oregon is still league champ.

    I'm dying to hear how you have Baylor in a better bowl then both TCU and Iowa State.

    I think ND loses to USC next week. I don't care if Barkley is playing at QB or not. I'm just not sold on ND.

    So unfortunately, we might see another SEC vs. SEC in the title game.

    Exactly. That was the conclusion that we came to as well. Tech is currently imploding and I see no reason at all why that is about to stop.

    Oregon will be in a position to still play for the title, perhaps without having to play in the Pac 12 Championship game, IF Southern Cal beats Notre Dame.

    I am only expecting the Ducks to fall to #4 in the BCS standings (released tonight)

    After watching Tech vs. Kansas and Oklahoma State it appears they don't either.

    This one is easy.

    2010 Texas Bowl (BAYLOR vs. Illinois) Attendance 68,211
    Houston Bowl (
    IOWA STATE vs. TCU) Attendance 37,286

    Why do so many people think this is about who won head-to-head or who finishes higher in the standings? It is not.
