BCS Bowl Games 2012 Schedule: When is the Alabama and Notre Dame Playing?
The hype of the BCS Bowl Games for 2012 and 2013 continues to intensify. With few more days, the football battle is about to begin. However, the cream of the crops of the college football are the BCS Games which includes the BCS National Championship of Alabama and Notre Dame.
Let's take a look at the Five BCS Games
Alabama vs Notre Dame -BCS Championship Miami Florida, January 7, 2013
This is about the best team in the SEC and the undefeated team in college football. Alabama Crimson Tide are just lucky to be here as other teams collapsed at the end of the schedule. Meanwhile, Notre Dame Fighting Irish deserve to be here because they are the only squad without a loss. Winning all their games allowed them to be in the BCS Title game. Both teams are almost identical in offense and defense yet many experts put their bet on the Crimson Tide to win.
Oregon vs Kansas State - Fiesta Bowl - Glendale, AZ January 3, 2013
Call it the offensive football game. Oregon and Kansas State were in No 1 and No 2 in the BCS Standings with three more weeks to finish it off. However, they were beaten in separate games badly that they have to settle for the Fiesta Bowl. Oregon is not even the Pac 12 winner while Kansas State is the Big 12 winner.
Louisville vs Florida - Sugar Bowl - New Orleans LA, January 2, 2012
This is a mismatch in the making. Florida Gators ranked third in the Final BCS Standings that they are capaple of overpowering the Big East Champion Louisville. It is significant for the Gators to be this strong because they are in the SEC losing only to Georgia. If not for a perfect Notre Dame, there might be a showdown in the BCS Championship with Alabama.
Wisconsin vs Stanford - Orange Bowl - Pasadena, CA, January 1, 2013
The Big Ten Champion vs the Pac 12 Champion. This is a tradition but the best in Big Ten didn't represent the conference this time because of ineligibility. Ohio State had a perfect record and Penn State had a better record than Wisconsin. However, these two teams were banned from postseason that Wisconsin was the representative to face Nebraska in the Big 10 Championship. Wisconsin won that game.
Northern Illinois vs Florida State - Orange Bowl - Miami FL, January 1, 2012
Florida State is the ACC Champion while Northern Illinois comes from a non-BCS conference. Northern Illinois is the surprising team that entered in the BCS Games. Florida State has all the advantage for this series and that they can overwhelm Northern Illinois.
