Rose Bowl: Nebraska vs. Stanford

Sugar Bowl: South Carolina vs. Oregon

*All one has to do is look at Alabma's team when healthy last year. That small sample size would show early-season dominance and a mauling of then 11-1 Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl. With 16 players returning (9 on that vaunted defense), a BCS bowl is in the bag and the BCS is only an undefeated season away.

SEC: Alabama over South Carolina

Big 10: Nebraska over Wisconsin

Pac-12: Stanford over Arizona State

ACC: Virginia Tech over Florida State
