It is being reported in some outlets that...................

If Rutgers wins Saturday they go to the ORANGE BOWL. If they lose they end up in the TEXAS BOWL playing Oklahoma St.

West Virigina is going to the SUN BOWL to play Oregon St

everything hasn't been decided yet. Just those 2.....

Also looks like the GATOR BOWL will take a Big 12 team this year to play an ACC team.

From the Bergen Record Today

Here are Rutgers' likely bowl destinations based on the outcome of Saturday's game at West Virginia:
If Rutgers wins: The Knights capture the Big East championship and a BCS bowl berth, most likely the Orange Bowl or Sugar Bowl.
If Rutgers loses: It likely is headed to the Dec. 28 Texas Bowl in Houston to face a Big 12 team (perhaps Texas Tech, Oklahoma State or Kansas State).

Most college football fans were not even aware the Birmingham Bowl existed. Now the name will not get a chance to sink in. The game on Thursday was renamed the Papajohns.com Bowl after the web site of Papa John's Pizza entered into a multi-year agreement to become the title sponsor of the inaugural postseason contest.

Staged on December 23 at Birmingham's Legion Field, the Papajohns.com Bowl is one of 32 bowl games on the docket after this season. It will be contested between one team from the Big East Conference and one from Conference USA.

ND doesn't deserve a BCS game at all.

Probably true, but every projection I've seen has ND in the Sugar or the Rose. I wouldnt mind a 2nd level bowl like the Cotton Bowl or Capital One but I'm not going to apologize for the voters and computers decision. I doubt the Rose Bowl for obvious reasons. Though the history involved could be a real selling point.

Here is what Rutgers has riding on this WV game.

A Rutgers win and they go to Orange or Rose Bowl. YES, the ROSE BOWL is liking Rutgers vs Michigan more than LSU vs Michigan because of the NY TV market and the TV ratings. Especially with ABC having ONLY 1 BCS bowl this year (ROSE) and everything else on FOX.

If Rutgers wins it will be raining $100 bills in NJ this weekend.


NOW.........if WV beats Rutgers. Then Rutgers goes to the Texas Bowl, on dec 28th at 8pm vs Texas Tech or Oklahoma St. And the game is on the NFL NETWORK........and nobody will be watching that game cause most people dont even get NFL NETWORK!!!!!!

Rutgers is going to be in the OUTHOUSE or the PENTHOUSE. A lot riding on this 1 game.

Because they are the NFL Network, why should they show college games?

I could understand the Senior Bowl, Hula Bowl, Shrine Game, etc.... But not regular games.

I'm not pissed at anyone, I have Directv with NFL Network and ESPN Gameplan (I've watched every single Gators game the last 3 years), just doesn't make sense to me. Now if they show more Gators games and I don't have to pay for ESPN Gameplan, I'm all for it! :lol:

I wonder how many big games they will get?

I told you the Rose was looking at them! IF they win, the Rose would do a monster rating with them in it.

Yeah but the ROSE is also affraid that Mich would kill them and hte game would be over by halftime with TV tubes flipping around the dial.

Nothing is set in stone, but IF Rutgers wins Saturday.........the Rose is a possibility.

It's either Rutgers or LSU in the Rose it looks like.

L'ville to the Orange

Rutgers to the TEXAS BOWL (Dec 28th, 8pm on NFL Network)


WV most likely to the Sun Bowl

Pitt most likely to the INTERNATIONAL BOWL in Toronto

USF and Cincy will be in PapaJohns and Meinke Car Care bowls. Don't know which one will take which one

Maybe the Gator switched their mind. I missed that.

Gator can take either a BIG EAST or BIG 12 team. They were leaning to BIG 12 cause they thought they could get a 3 loss Texas team, maybe they want a BIG EAST now if they can't get Texas

How it work is out of 4 years, the GATOR must take 2 big east and 2 big 12 teams (to play an ACC team). So, say the GATOR this year takes WV and next year takes L'ville........then the following 2 years the GATOR MUST take Big 12 teams each year. And the Sun Bowl gets the leftover team.

Gator might not get the Big 12 team they want so maybe WV is back in the mix.

The Gator is NOT happy about taking an ACC team it just saw a few weeks earlier in the ACC championship, in the same stadium. Especially when that team didn't sell many tickets.
IDK, when/if the changes will take place, but I know the Gator Bowl president, Rick Catlett, isn't happy about the current ACC situation.

No doubt. By the bowl game Pat White will be healthy and their offense will be back at full force. It was pretty evident over that past few games that he is the player that makes their offense the most dangerous. They weren't the same offense after he got hurt and sat out last night's game. If White had played last night, that game wouldn't have even needed 1 overtime, muchless 3 overtimes.

I'm just thankful that the Cards don't have to worry about it. All they have to worry about is if they are going to get picked by the Sugar or the Orange Bowls!:clap:

He shouldn't be, now GT could go back to Jacksonville to play again???? After that miserable performance yesterday why does the GATOR BOWL want them back in that stadium!They don't but are stuck in a way! Especially in a weak ACC this year. Who else do ya take?

L'ville should be sick today. If they don't go offsides on that FG and that RUTGERS game goes to OT. They could win and could be playing Ohio St.

When USC lost yesterday, first thing I thought of was L'ville. Cause that would have put them in that game with NO DEBATE!!! But they blew it!

Who else do ya take?That's the problem with the ACC Championship being held at the same site as the Gator Bowl. If Clemson had finished a little stronger they would have been a good option. BC is a good team, but the GB doesn't want them due to their expected willingness to travel.
The GB President really sounded like he wanted to have the option of removing the ACC team from a must pick. He actually made it sound like the GB didn't have to choose an ACC team, but he didn't outright say that.
