I was using the final BCS rankings before Bowl Week last season. That's how I got my field of 16/17. Reason there's a Play-In game is because Florida State and Wisconsin were seperated by .0027 I believe.

USC was the best team in the land but Auburn deserved the chance to have it settled on the field.

YES a playoff is needed. Now if only the BCS would stop acting as if they are looking out for "student athletes" and realize that all the money they are worried about will still be there.



Andrew- How was Iowa not even in your top 16?

well heres my picks for all of BigBenROY's games
Play in game- FSU 23, Wisconsin 17- Wisconsin's tailspin continues in the play in game and Wyatt Sexton leads the Seminoles in the playoffs.
West Regional (@ Arizona State)
#1 (#1 overall) - Southern California Trojans 38
vs.
#4 (#16 or #17 overall) - Florida State Seminoles 21
Reggie bush scores 2 TD's, one rushing and one recieving and the Trojans roll

Drew Tate passes for 3 TD's and the Hawkeyes advance
-------------------------

North Regional (@ Notre Dame)
#1 (#4 overall)- Texas Longhorns
vs.
#4 (#13 overall)- Michigan Wolverines
This one goes the same way the Rose Bowl went. i don't remember the score but Vince Young saves the day.

#2 (#5 overall) - California Golden Bears 24
vs.
#3 (#9 overall) - Boise State Broncos 17
Cal squeezes through with a TD pass by Rodgers in the last minute.

------------------------------------------

South Regional (@ Oklahoma State)
#1 (#2 overall)- Oklahoma Sooners 38
vs.
#4 (#15 overall) - Tennessee Volunteers 45
Offense is the show here, neither defense can stop anything but in the end Rick Clausen leads a last minute drive that gives Tennesse the upset of the 1st round.
#2 (#7 overall) - Georgia Bulldogs 13
vs.
#3 (#11 overall)- Louisiana State Tigers 10
Defense rules this one, a last second FG wins this one.

-------------------------

East Regional (@ Florida)
#1 (#3 overall) - Auburn Tigers 28
vs.
#4 (#14 overall)- Miami (FL) Hurricanes 3
Jason Campbell throws 2 TD's, and Ronnie Brown and Caddy each run for one TD

#2 (#6 overall) - Utah Utes 48
vs.
#3 (#10 overall) - Louisville Cardina 45
Alex Smith saves the day by throwing for 4 touchdowns and running for 2 more to stop the explosive Cardinals.

QUARTER FINALS

USC 28
Iowa 20

Matt Leinart keeps the Trojans season going with 3 TD passes, and Drew Tate's Haily Mary heave finds an Iowa reciever in the endzone, only to watch him drop the pass.

Texas 13
Cal 17

The Cal defense finds a way to shut down Vince Young, and Cedric Benson fumbles inside the 5 yard line, allowing the Bears to advance to the Final Four

Georgia 23
Tennesee 26

This one has a SEC flair to it out in Stillwater. Rick Clausen pulls it out again, with a game winning FG ending Mark Richt and the Bulldog's disappointing season

Auburn 20
Utah 27 OT

the Swamp s the scene for a monumental and game changing upset, as the non BCS Utes shock Auburn in OT when Alex Smith finds Steve Savoy for a 37 yard TD pass, and denying the Tigers an SEC showdown at the Sugar Bowl


FINAL FOUR

Fiesta Bowl

USC 31
Cal 17

The Trojan offense is in full throttle, as Leinart outduels Rodgers to prove he is the better QB

Sugar Bowl

Tennesee
21
Utah 17

Rick Clausen goes down in injury in the first quarter and Erik Ainge makes a shock comeback, throwing 2 second half TD's to lift the Vols into the championship game.

3rd place game

Rose Bowl

the 3rd place game was crucial to the agreement of a playoff, as all 4 BCS stadiums wanted games every year, so the Rose Bowl gets 3rd place game this year.

Utah 37
Cal 21

Utah scores a win for all mid majors, by finishing 3rd in the nation overall. Alex Smith is spectacular with 2 TD passes, but its an Aaron Rodgers INT returned for a TD that sends Utah to the win, as Cal blows a 21-6 lead in the 2nd half.

CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
Orange Bowl

USC 48
Tennessee 16

USC takes it home by building a 21-0 first quarter lead behind 2 Matt Leinart TD throws and a Reggie Bush punt return TD.


FINAL FOUR MVP: Matt Leinart
TOURNAMENT MVP: Alex Smith
