Really don't like that we got Oklahoma instead of Oregon facing Bama. Would have at least been fun to have the Oregon/Bama matchup, even if both are flawed this year. Oklahoma will likely get trashed unless Bama just shows up not caring.
Will Clemson clemson against Urban, or will that horrid OSU defense fold again? I don't think I trust Tahj Boyd in big games. No, not at all really.
OSU/Mizzou might be entertaining, but I guess it doesn't feel special to me with Mizzou only two years removed from playing OSU on a regular basis.
Fiesta Bowl...well then. Uh, Baylor wins. Not sure what changed but UCF got worse as the season went on.
Not sure if anyone will score at all in the Rose Bowl. Really looking forward to that game.
I'm also hoping for a good game from the Duke/A&M matchup. Cutcliff is a bit of a prick and a sore loser, but he can coach and that team can be physical. I think they can grind out yards against A&M and keep it close. Maybe.
Oregon vs Texas. Mack Brown makes his last stand at the Alamo. And loses, badly.
I think having a month to prepare for Auburn's offense will help FSU a ton and they'll get the win. Was rewatching the Iron Bowl and kept saying, well if the defender had just played his assignment, they stop them there. Over and over. So yeah, hopefully we don't lose our heads like Bama did. Also, we have a kicker. A really, really good one.
GT had a rating of 1628.4017 and Iowa had 1529.0634 Iowa's win and GT's loss changed their ratings of course. Iowa gained 61.7 and change, and GT lost 31.4 and change. Other things that hand an effect on their ratings:
