BCS Bowl Projections Have Alabama and Ohio State in National Championship


The college football season is a few months away, but the analysis and predictions are already beginning to roll in for the 2013 season. The latest predictions give us a look at who may be matched up in the top BCS bowls. As you would expect, the Alabama Crimson Tide and Ohio State Buckeyes are the overwhelming favorites to make it to the BCS title game, but there are some very intriguing match ups in the remaining bowl games.

Here are the BCS bowl projections from Jerry Palm of CBS Sports:

BCS National Championship
Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

Orange Bowl
Florida State Seminoles vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Sugar Bowl
Texas A&M Aggies vs. Clemson Tigers

Fiesta Bowl
Texas Longhorns vs. Louisville Cardinals

Rose Bowl
Nebraska Cornushkers vs. Stanford Cardinal

You can read Palm’s projections for all 35 bowl games here on CBS.com.

The Longhorns vs. Cardinals and Aggies vs. Tigers match ups would be especially intriguing. The high-powered offenses would light up the scoreboard and we would get a chance to see three of the nation’s top signal-callers in action — Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville), Tajh Boyd (Clemson) and Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M).

    MUCH better match ups than last year…of course this is the predictions and not the real thing.

  • PalmettoSmoke

    Why is Boyd always singled out as a top QB at the beginning of the season? When has he ever lived up to the hype?

    • GoHawgs

      Did u watch the bowl game vs LSU? He proved himself as a top qb that game.
