Weekly Bowl Projections

Each week this time of year our founder gazes into his crystal ball and projects how the college football season will unfold.

The big debate is now about whether or not there will be a Michigan-Ohio State rematch in the BCS National Championship Game if it's a close game in Columbus on November 18th.

It's more possible now after USC's loss at Oregon State, but there are still two obstacles standing in the way of that happening.

First off, there is no way it will happen if the West Virginia-Louisville winner finishes undefeated.

Second, if Ohio State is the only undefeated team Michigan likely won't get in over a 12-1 Florida or Auburn squad that wins the SEC Championship.

I think the overall weakness of the Big 12 is going to make it tough for Texas to get the nod over Michigan in this scenario since the Buckeyes beat them convincingly in their own stadium.
