    For those who have never played before, don't worry... It's not very time consuming. Once the bowl matchups have been announced, it is as simple as making your picks and indicating how confident you are in those picks. That's it. :)

    Hope everyone plays!

    Cool Aaron. I was actually thinking of setting up something like this myself, so I'm glad you went ahead and did the legwork! Looking forward to it.

    Yeah it feels like the season just started, now we're already nearing bowl season. It's crazy how quickly college football flies by.

    I'm still holding out that slight hope for an Oklahoma/Texas national championship game. That way, TX Tech can go to the Fiesta!

    A few teams have already accepted bowl bids. Georgia Tech in the Chick-fil-A (Peach) Bowl, Rice in the Texas Bowl, Clemson to the Gator Bowl, and Southern Miss in the New Orleans Bowl.

    I've seen a few projections that have TCU vs. Boise State in the Poinsettia Bowl. If Boise can't play Ball State (or Utah), TCU would probably be the second team I'd want them to play. That'd be a good game.

    And it looks like they won't. Why? Money, mostly. ESPN - Unbeatens Boise State and Ball State won't meet

    It'd be nice to see two undefeated teams play in a bowl game (assuming Ball St. beats Buffalo). Too bad. The fans get screwed again.

    I agree. I wish they could have played Utah in the BCS...two undefeated mid-major teams going at it. And then Alabama could have played Texas. Ohio State kinda ruined things.

    But, Boise State/TCU should be a really good game.
