Florida-Penn State

November 3, 2008

Despite Alabama and Texas Tech being 1-2 in the new BCS rankings, both ESPN bowl projectionists predict a Florida-Penn State national championship game.

Personally, I would most like to see the Big 12 Champ and SEC Champ play for the national title, with Penn State and USC playing in the Rose Bowl. I think everyone acknowledges the Big 12 and SEC to be the top conferences, and I enjoy keeping the Big Ten-Pac 10 Rose Bowl setup whenever possible. Unfortunately, it looks like Penn State will get through undefeated and defeat this plan (unless Alabama and Texas Tech both win out, which no one thinks will happen). But in college football, we should know better by now than to think we can figure out the BCS picture before the final week of the regular season is done. Penn State is at Iowa and then home for Indiana and Michigan State to close out the season.
