Bowl Speculation in Full Gear

The view from a Big 12 optimist.

Apparently if Nebraska takes care of Colorado, the Huskers will be invited to play in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida. Nice. And the opponent is shaping up to be Florida State. Even better. It's starting to feel like Big Red football again.

Now let's get creative. That Gator Bowl matchup would be spiced up by Florida State beating Florida. Then Florida beats Alabama in the SEC championship game.

That would clear the way for an Oklahoma-Texas rematch for the national championship. That's how Steve Spurrier got his title at Florida, a rematch with Florida State in which Florida avenged its loss to FSU.

Colt McCoy for Texas and Sam the Indian for Oklahoma. Right out of central casting.

If it's the Sun Bowl in El Paso for Nebraska instead of the Gator, will Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops pull a Barry Switzer and show up on the set of the Bo Pelini show with a bag of tacos for his good buddy? Pelini might not be as good-humored as Tom Osborne was.

A Youngstown smack down right on the spot. Great TV.
