Tomorrow might be the second most important day in college football (next to the national championship, of course). The BCS national championship matchup will be determined, and other teams can secure a spot in a BCS bowl. Here are my predictions for the conference championship games.
ACC: Clemson vs Georgia Tech: ACC championships are always close, and lately mediocre. This matchup features too strong running teams. Clemson's heisman candidate CJ Spiller will have to have a huge game for the Tigers to win this one, and he'll have a shot since Georgia Tech gave up 339 yards last week to Georgia. However, Georgia Tech has the superior offense and defense, so they'll win a close game. Ramblin Wreck goes on to play Cincinnati in the Orange Bowl.
Big 12: Texas vs Nebraska: This one's easy. Texas has been quitely sitting in the top 3 all season, and is ready to get back to the National Championship game. Nebraska's offense is not strong enough keep up with Texas, and Colt McCoy and the Longhorns will win this one easily.
Big East: Cincinnati vs Pittsburgh: Cincinatti looks to get back to the Orange bowl, while Pittsburgh has quietly stepped into the Big East Championship game. If Cincinatti wants to prove themselves again, they need to win a BCS bowl. This is the first step. Marty Gilyard is one of the best, yet unnoticed wide receivers is college football, and he'll have a huge game. Cincinatti wins easily.
SEC: Florida vs Alabama: The SEC got what they wanted in this, as they blatantly displayed their wishes through some baffling calls made by officials. Either way, the two best teams in the SEC, possibly in the whole country will meet, in what should be one of the best SEC Championships of all time. Alabama's offense has shown weaknesses, and if they want to win, Greg McElroy will have to play well, and he'll have to get a big game out of Julio Jones. Alabama's two runningbacks Trent Richardson and leading Heisman candidate Mark Ingram will be tough to stop. However, Florida has the speed and athletes to cancel out Alabama's powerful running game. Tim Tebow will not be stopped in his last SEC Championship, and the Gators will return yet again to the National Championship game to play Texas.
