Orange Bowl Clemson Alabama

GoDaddy Bowl Bowling Green Arkansas State*
BCS National Championship Florida State Ohio State

So of course Bowling Green has to go and screw things up.  Northern Illinois’s loss has a bit of a ripple effect as it affects the BCS in a huge way.  First off, this moves the Huskies out of the BCS and changes things among the smaller bowls.  As of this point I see Buffalo now pushed out of a MAC tie-in bowl; however, they get moved to the Texas Bowl to face Michigan because I predict Baylor to go to the Sugar Bowl.  UCF will head to the Fiesta Bowl now to replace Northern Illinois.  The Big XII teams move up the ladder and this could potentially set up a fantastic Cotton Bowl with Texas A&M facing Texas.  I will update this as bowl bids are accepted or perhaps if more upsets occur.
