***College Football 2012 Bowl Thread***
 
The CFB Bowl selections are tonight, 8:30 on ESPN.

Reason I started this thread... New York Times' Pete Thamel is reporting that a source tells him Northern Illinois slipped into the top 16 and will play in the Orange Bowl against Florida State. ESPN's BCS guru Brad Edwards says he thinks NIU is in too.

Either way, bowl selections are starting to leak this afternoon.

Oklahoma is out. Sad.

I think that's awesome, although I don't think it's going to end well for them.

I wasn't sure they were going to make it, thought (ironically) that they might end up just outside the bubble thanks to Boise State.

I didn't think they'd make it either... but they probably have a better shot than Kent State would have. NIU has a dual threat QB who can at least cause some havoc out there.

Should be a great game to watch.

Looks like Georgia is going to get Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl. From five yards away from the national championship game to the Capital One Bowl.

Yep. They got punished for beating UF on the road and taking Alabama to the brink. The almighty BCS got 2 unranked teams and a Mac team to play in their games this year.

So long as the Cats play K-State football and not try to match Oregon's offense attempting to play Oregon ball.

Otherwise it will be Baylor all over again.

Hoping my Sun Devils get the Las Vegas Bowl and not the Albuerqueque Bowl.

The ACC should finally have an Orange Bowl opponent they can beat.
I'm sure the OB is thrilled about this.
Nothing against NI but that's not a game I'm remotely interested in watching. Their inclusion is a joke. They beat no one of substance and in fact lost to a 4 win Big Ten also ran (Iowa). I caught some that MAC CCG and to put it bluntly they stink.

I was actually looking forward to Oklahoma vs Florida.

With that much time to prepare I'm sure the old man will have them playing much better on defense than they did against Baylor.
