|2||-||Big 12 Championship|
With only two survivors from last week, the countdown is starting the annual change for bowl season. Four bowls made it this week, with more to come. This weekend is the big announcement, where in most all bowl participants will be decided. One our biggest weekends of the year. Cotton Bowl is leading at the moment. With Texas A&M accepting the invite, it’s not surprising. The Big 12 championship, which will no doubt effect who ends up in the National Championship, arrives at #2, followed by the SEC Championship which fell from #1.
We get a short break from college football to allow George Strait to find a comfy spot after losing the #1 slot. He’s followed by Taylor Swift. Swift recently announced the Speak Now Tour in support of her latest album. This will probably be a hot ticket that keeps her on the countdown most of the summer.
Back to the bowls with Sugar and the big National Championship at 6 and 7. The BCS is out in sunny Phoenix this year, rotating through with the Fiesta Bowl.
More concerts as Lady Gaga returns to the countdown after a brief absence, though only making #8. Gaga is still touring overseas and won’t be stateside again until February. Kid Rock debuts on the countdown at #10. This is his first appearance and likley due to his recent touring announcement. He’ll be out on tour early in 2011 in support of his recently released Born Free album.
