#9 - Bridgeport Education Holiday Bowl: Texas vs. Cal Next » 2 of 10 « Prev

Both BYU and Utah came up short against these teams (BYU falling to Texas and Utah losing to Cal) early in the season in what looks to be a very good matchup. The Holiday Bowl has a history of providing high-scoring games that aren't decided until late and this year's game certainly looks to have that potential.

I personally don't see why the BcS championship game has any interest. That game has already been decided.

I also don't see how you can say that there is little doubt that Oregon is the best team in the Pac 12 when the lost to the better team (USC). Perhaps clarifying that they were the best team eligible for post season play would be more accurate.

It would also be nice to have the game dates/times/channels listed. If these games are so interesting, why not tell us when/how to find them? The title even suggests circling them on the calendar, but it does not provide the info to do so.

South Jordan, UT

The NCAA needs an 8 game playoff on somewhat neutral fields. Most of these games don't appear so exciting anymore. I will watch the local teams while cheering hard for Tulsa, Utah and Utah State.

The playoffs would be sexy even if my team was not playing in it. We can still keep another 30 silly bowl games.

Provo, UT

Go Cougars! Go Aggies! Go Yellow Jackets!

Nibley, Ut

only game I may watch is Stanford v OSU. mainly because they both played well this year and haven't played each other yet. I am just sick of the BCS. I havent watched many of the BCS games the past few years, especially the "NC". what's the point? In the BCS' attempt to make the regular season like the playoffs, they managed to make the playoff's like the regular season. I'm with TJ, someday we will have a national champion.

Las Vegas, NV

I gotta like Sarkisian in this contest.

Long Time Ute

Go Utes! Go Aggies! Go Golden Hurricane!

Salt Lake City, UT

Its an ok list. However, why is there a picture of Oklahoma for Oklahoma State? That is silly.

There would be an elevated level of interest and excitement if amoung or within these bowl games there were seven games scheduled to determine a Division 1A champion.
