|6||-||Trans Siberian Orchestra|
It appears searchers are savoring the anticipation of Sunday’s bowl announcements, as they are noticeably absent this week. The only exception, making it to #3 this week, is the BCS, and that is likely because Norte Dame has a “presumptive” lock on it. The Fighting Irish haven’t been to the National Championship Game for quite some time, so fans are eager to see them make some history at Sun Life Stadium this January.
The Irish in question will likely be fighting the winner of the #1 entry this week, the SEC Championship. The Crimson Tide and the Georgia flavored Bulldogs take to the field at the Georgia Dome this Saturday.
Squeezed between these testosterone fueled spectacles, 1D lands in the #2 spot. With the exception of the Heat holding over from before the Thanksgiving holiday, the remainder of the countdown is filled with concert performers. The holiday concert season is in full swing, as evidenced by the return of noted holiday favorite Trans Siberian Orchestra in the #6 spot. TSO’s show this season is based on their 2004 album The Lost Christmas Eve.
Some classic rock rounding things out this week, as both Rush and Clapton make an appearance. Clapton is playing shows with the somewhat freshly reunited Wallflowers next spring.
I’m sure next week we will be seeing some more bowl entries. Will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
