This is the one I am looking forward to;

4:00 PM No. 2 Alabama vs. No. 3 Georgia* CBS

SEC Championship and set up for who plays Notre Dame!

I love my Dawgs, but I am not very confident going into this. I hope we win, but Bama is formidable and awesome.

I’m rooting for Cincinnati to beat Connecticut—I hold one unit from the University of Cincinnati, although I’ve never been there.

Murray can pass really well, but he can’t run and extend plays like Manzel.

The Badgers find themselves playing for the conference championship through no fault of their own. They deserve the thumping that is coming their way...but if they were to pull it off they would go to the Rose Bowl. How laughable is that?

Providing that Kansas St beats Texas (they are a 10 pt. favorite, this is the post-season I’d like to see.

1. Notre Dame vs SEC Champion
2. SEC Runner-Up or Florida vs. Kansas St or Oregon
3. The other two of the #2 matchup.
4. LSU vs Stanford (screw tradition, I want good match-ups)

I believe these are the 8 best college teams in the country and they should play each other.

Not as laughable if Georgia Tech wins the ACC Title game...7-6 and going to a major bowl.

At least there will be fans at the B1G Champ Game....they already have tarps on the end zone seats in Charlotte for ACC Champ Game

That would be a huge joke. If GT wins and UGA looses. Georgia Tech getting a BCS bowl and UGA, who destroyed Tech last weekend, getting left out.

The whole BCS bowl situation is a disaster that can’t end soon enough.

Georgia has a good defense, I expect a close low-scoring game, and IMHO if that’s the case UGA deserves the BCS bid win or lose.

"Not as laughable if Georgia Tech wins the ACC Title game...7-6 and going to a major bowl."

I'm not so sure about that. Wisconsin is only 7-5 but 4-4 in the Big 10 and playing for the championship due to transgressions resulting in ineligibility from far more talented teams like undefeated Ohio State. Oh well, it's only a game. I'll check out ESPN's website tomorrow to discover the winner of tonight's game. (having eschewed television about 5 years ago.)

I think A&M is a better team than Forida at this point in the season. We barely lost to Florida and it was A&M first game of the season with new coach, new conference, and johnny Manziel’s first game. A&M has improved more than Florida over the course of the season!

Ya old fart....:)

This is a special occasion, like when Rich Little was on the Tonight Show. Call your mom and ask her if it'd be okay. You'll feel like a little kid again!

I surely would like to see Manziel get the Heisman this year.

~50 minutes until kick-off!

BTW, welcome to the SEC. It A&M and Mizzou are great additions and I am glad to have them. I do wish both were put in the West. Having Missouri in the east is awkward for travel.

Lou pretty much just threw the Dawgs under the bus. I don’t have a favorite in this fight, I just want the winner to beat the crap out of ND.

You make a very good argument, but that loss was my tiebreaker. I’d put Texas A&M with Florida St (if they win), Nebraska (if they win) and Oklahoma and make match-ups between the four. The Big East champ can play Northern Illinois (a good mid-major) and I believe that’s all the BCS matchups. I probably have too many games, but it’s not going to happen anyway but of the STUPID conference tie-ins. I loath and despise conference tie-ins.

I can only imagine. I've never seen Wisconsin pull that many rabbits out of its proverbial hat.

When they run the "barge" (9 offensive lineman, one TE in motion, and snap the ball to the tailback), there's over a ton and a half of beef on the front line.

Hope they have a few tricks left for Stanford.
