The BCS matchups have been set, and as always, we'll see some great and lousy matchups.
First things first, TCU vs Boise State? Really? The point of the BCS games is to see if the smaller schools can compete with the power houses. Matching the two against each other won't prove anything. The TCU/Boise matchup is just like creating a kids table. Until we see a matchup like TCU/Florida, a la Utah Alabama last year, TCU or Boise will not be able to prove themself as a legit contender.
I like the Florida/Cincinnati matchup. Tebow will play his final game against a quietly undefeated Cincinnati. Both teams can score, and it will be interesting to see how Cincinnati's offense fairs against Florida's defense. We'll also get to see how big of an impact Carlos Dunlap actually makes, after his absence was used as an excuse for Alabama's trouncing of Florida in the SEC Championship game. I either see this game as Florida winning in a blowout, or a closely fought game between the two. Florida won't embarrass themselves, but taking the Bearcats lightly would be detrimental in their last game.
Georgia Tech/Iowa should also be good. You've got a monster of a rushing offense in Georgia Tech matching up against Iowa's stingy defense that has only allowed 11 points a game. Georgia Tech will score more than 11, you can be certain of that, but it's always nice to pair a powerful offense and defense vs each other. Georgia Tech's defense ain't all that bad either, so I like the Yellow Jackets in this one.
I'm not big on this Oregon/Ohio State game. Ohio State got in automatically, but there are better teams than them that aren't playing in a BCS game. Oregon's offense has been spectacular, and they'll put on a show in their final game. Terrelle Prior's play will be key to Ohio State's success, but I like Oregon in this one, as their rushing will be too powerful to stop.
Last of all, the national championship. Two of the classic football powerhouses will square off in what should be a great game. Alabama crushed Florida to win a spot, while Texas has quietly finished undefeated and won a bid to the championship game. Colt McCoy is probably the best quarterback in the country statistically, while Alabama will bring in their two-headed monster of rushing game. I like Alabama in this one, but it could really go either way. That being said, this should be an exciting matchup and the best of the BCS games.
Those are my picks, tell me what you think.
