    Why wasn’t Oregon, which was rated above Oklahoma in the final BCS standings, selected to play Alabama in the Sugar Bowl? Did Bama get their choice of opponents and select the team they felt more confident that they could defeat?

      The Sugar Bowl gets to pick who they want, and they picked Oklahoma over Oregon.

      Are games selected based on viewer-ship? Money to be made from commercials, ticket sales, etc?

      You think Oregon is better than Oklahoma? Pffft! Son, the big 12 is the most underrated of all the conferences. Oregon is not all they are quacked up to be! lol

      Nope its because Oklahoma is closer to the Sugar Bowl and its two teams with a deep history in football so also my guess would be name recognition had a little bit to do with it as well but that last point is just a guess on my part

      Because Oklahoma will sell around 10,000 more tickets and game will sel out OU is like 2000 miles closer

    For the first time in my life…I may be rooting for Oklahoma.

    good to see teams like Buffalo, Tulane, Minnesota, Ohio, Rutgers, MTSU, North Texas in bowl games, and Florida and W. Virginia playing golf.

    Im an auburn fan but do you really think Oregon could beat Bama. Bama would destroy them just like Arizona did but a bunch worse. Oregon plays decent until they play someone good.

    Oregon blows it like they always do.

    They couldn’t find room for one of the FOUR Sunbelt teams that went 6-6? Good showing by the SB this year sans Georgia State.

    Better bowl matchups than last season.

    3 PAC-12 vs. 3 MWC? Can we get some diversity in the conference match-ups? And so few mid-major vs AQ games—-people tune in to watch those….suggest they try for more in future seasons.

    The PAC 12 matchups are by and large pretty boring. They have such poor tie ins that they end up with 3 Mountain West and BYU, hardly exciting . Holiday Bowl PAC12 #2 vs Big 12 #3.
    Alamo Bowl, PAC12 #3 vs Big12 #5. Maaco Bowl PAC12 #5 vs. Mountain West Chump. Sun Bowl PAC12 #4 vs ACC #4 in El Paso. Mostly pre New Years night games. Meanwhile, the Big 10 and SEC play New Years Day or later in more prestigious bowls. Nice job PAC 12 Commissioner !

    Would be great if you were able to create a helmet version of the bowl schedule!

    Most Bowls have a commitment with two conferences for their selection choices. Like x#2 vs. y#3, x#4 vs y#1, etc….. Wake up.

    Why isn’t it possible to find a printable bowl schedule that lists the game times in Pacific Time? Or for that matter, any time zone except ET? Sure, I can made the mental adjustment, but the failure to produce the variants is just stupid. We don’t all live in Atlanta or New York.
