We’re getting close to bowl season and that’s our favorite time of the year here at TicketCity. We’ve got some bowl predictions to quench your bowl thirst until announcement day on December 2. Head over to our bowl page if you’re interested in tickets. Here are some of the more interesting match ups being projected:

Holiday Bowl: TCU vs. Oregon State — Two teams with totally different seasons. OSU came out of nowhere and were ranked as high as #7 nationally, while TCU was 4-0 and #15 to start the season before losing some nail-biters. This game would be a treat for anyone in SoCal.

Rose Bowl: Nebraska vs. Oklahoma — As excited as Nebraska would be to make the Rose Bowl, can’t see them being too happy about drawing Oklahoma. Bo Pelini has made his feelings on the Big 12 clear, and having to out-coach Bob Stoops is never an easy task (even with OU’s troubles in BCS games). A tasty match up for Oklahoma, however, as they’d like to give the Huskers one last kick out the door.

Cotton Bowl: Texas vs. Texas A&M — Where to start with this one? Texas walked off the field in College Station thinking they had won their last game against the Aggies for years to come. Now they might have to see A&M and their Heisman candidate QB Johnny Manziel? The Horns have righted the ship recently, but I don’t think there’s a soul on the 40 Acres that wants to see the Longhorns face Texas A&M in January.

BCS National Championship: Oregon vs. Notre Dame — While Kansas State is ranked #1 in the BCS right now, our predictions cover how we think the rest of the season will play out and our resident picker doesn’t see Bill Snyder’s Wildcats coming out of the rest of their schedule unscathed. Oregon vs. Notre Dame would be high-octane offense vs. a wall of defense on the biggest stage. When Notre Dame is in the mix, the rest of the country is always watching.

Games to watch this weekend that could move the projections:

#17 UCLA vs. #18 USC

#13 Stanford vs. #2 Oregon

#23 Texas Tech vs. #24 Oklahoma State


Season’s First BCS Rankings Cause Quite A Stir

As the season’s first BCS poll rankings are revealed, it’s always expected there will be a difference of opinion, and many opinions at that. However, some interesting upsets this weekend, with the likes of Ohio State and Nebraska, mixed with the usual chatter around the much debated BCS, have brought even more debate. “Pay no attention to these BCS standings,” saya Dan Wetzel of Yahoo’s Rivals.com. And Bleacher Report asks the question, “Who Got Screwed in the First BCS Poll?” Depsite Nebraska’s loss to Texas and still being ranked above them (No. 16 vs No. 19), some would argue Nebraska still got screwed after a 7 point loss to a then unranked team. And apparently Wisconsin’s win over Ohio State did not have the impact many expected as the Badgers still chase the Buckeyes in the poll, No. 13 to No. 10.

Here’s the round-up of this week’s current BCS standings:


  1. Oklahoma .9215
  2. Oregon .8921
  3. Boise State .8898
  4. Auburn .8641
  5. TCU .8573
  6. LSU .8245
  7. Michigan State .7628
  8. Alabama .6654
  9. Utah .6540
  10. Ohio State .5726
  11. Missouri .5491
  12. Stanford .5374
  13. Wisconsin .5335
  14. Oklahoma State .5261
  15. Iowa .4824
  16. Nebraska .4295
  17. Florida State .4267
  18. Arizona .3807
  19. Texas .2214
  20. West Virginia .1812
  21. South Carolina .1555
  22. Kansas State .1422
  23. Arkansas .1302
  24. Mississippi State .1253
  25. Virginia Tech .0658

Bowl Picks for the 2009 College Football Bowl Season

FedEx BCS National Championship
Projection: Texas vs. OU
Texas has a case, and if Missouri does not pull off a shocker, Texas should still have enough BCS points to stay ahead of Florida.

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl
Projection:  Florida vs. Utah
The Fiesta Bowl will pick Florida because they will be the next highest ranked BCS teams.  The big question will be the opponent, as the Fiesta will get the first pick of at-large teams and will cut a deal with the Sugar Bowl and end up taking Utah because it is closer.  And they will travel to Arizona after there amazing season.

Allstate Sugar Bowl
Projection:  Alabama vs. Ohio State
The SEC championship game loser will travel to the Sugar Bowl, and the Fiesta Bowl will enable them to scoop up Ohio State again. Ohio isn’t afraid to have a big game in New Orleans.

Fedex Orange Bowl
Projection: Boston College vs. Cincinnati
The ACC champion automatically goes here. Boston College should beat up on Virginia Tech and Cincinnati will be the last available BCS team standing.

Rose Bowl presented by Citi
Projection:  USC vs. Penn State
This is already set in stone unless USC loses to UCLA and it should be a great matchup.

San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl
Projection: TCU vs. Boise State

EagleBank Bowl
Projection:  Maryland vs. Navy

New Mexico Bowl
Projection: Colorado State vs. Fresno State
I’d rather be skiing!

Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl
Projection: BYU vs. California

St. Petersburg Bowl
Projection: South Florida vs. Southern Miss

R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl
Projection: Troy vs. Memphis

Sheraton Hawaii Bowl
Projection:  Western Michigan vs. Hawaii
Great for Western Michigan, this game will be a volcanic eruption.

Motor City Bowl
Projection:  NC State vs. Ball State
Free car for every player on the winning team!

Champs Sports Bowl
Projection: Georgia Tech vs. Minnesota
Minnesota is always excited to visit Mickey Mouse.

Emerald Bowl
Projection: Miami vs. Arizona
Hope some people go to this game because Miami is staying at the beach.  The Canes are back though and will lay the ground work for next year.

Meineke Car Care Bowl
Projection: North Carolina vs. Pitt
Home game for North Carolina.

PapaJohn’s.com Bowl
Projection: Rutgers vs. Florida Atlantic
Extra cheese please! Oh, and hold the pepperoni.

PetroSun Independence Bowl
Projection: Louisiana Tech vs. UL Lafayette

Alamo Bowl
Projection: Iowa vs. Nebraska
Everyone deserves a chance to visit San Antonio in the winter and enjoy a little sunshine.

Texas Bowl
Projection:  Notre Dame vs. Rice
Rice will be excited to see the Fighting Irish eat a little BBQ.

Pacific Life Holiday Bowl
Projection: Oklahoma State vs. Oregon
Oklahoma State has had a great season, and Boone Pickens can bask in the ocean breeze.

Roady’s Humanitarian Bowl
Projection: Wake Forest vs. Nevada

Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl
Projection: Air Force vs. Houston
Air vs. Oil Bowl

Sun Bowl
Projection: West Virginia vs. Oregon State
They would rather have Notre Dame; but if not, tequila all the way!

Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl
Projection: Clemson vs. Vanderbilt
Vanderbilt has had a good year and this home game will be the icing on the cake

Chick-fil-A Bowl
Projection: Virginia Tech vs. South Carolina
This game will be a tough cock fight.

Insight Bowl
Projection: Wisconsin vs. Kansas
Kansas, coming off a lucky upset of Missouri, will enjoy a little sunshine after that game.

Outback Bowl
Projection: Northwestern vs. LSU

Konica Minolta Gator Bowl
Projection: Florida State vs. Missouri
This depends on how Missouri plays against OU.  This game will show the world how great the Big 12 conference really is.

Capital One Bowl
Projection: Michigan State vs. Georgia
Georgia slides into this game, but there is still a chance Ole Miss may be here instead and Georgia will end up playing in the Cotton.

AutoZone Liberty Bowl
Projection: Tulsa vs. Kentucky

AT&T Cotton Bowl
Projection:  Texas Tech vs. Ole Miss
The Cotton Bowl would love to have Georgia, but Ole Miss travels pretty well and it would be great to have Jevon Snead return to Texas to go head-to-head against Graham Harrell.

International Bowl
Projection: Connecticut vs. Buffalo

Projection: East Carolina vs. Central
