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

Vanderbilt has had a good year and this home game will be the icing on the cake

This game will be a tough cock fight.
Projection: Wisconsin vs. Kansas
Kansas, coming off a lucky upset of Missouri, will enjoy a little sunshine after that game.
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.
Projection: Connecticut vs. Buffalo
Projection: East Carolina vs. Central
