ok, i dont follow football, so i dont really know how the college system works, but how is it that a team that is one of the higherst teams play a team that is many places behind them in a bowl game? shouldnt it be like #1 vs #2 for the championship, then #3vs #4 for the next, and so on...

It is 1 vs 2 (BCS Rankings)

The Bowls get to choose teams and the teams can say 'No' to a bowl. 3 and 4 this year were both Big 10 teams. It would not be a big draw, so these 2 teams ended in different bowl games. Basically, the bowls, except the championship, try to get the best teams with the best matchup that will get the best tv ratings, etc

No.


College football is divided into a few confrences. The SEC (Tennessee, Bama, Florida, Auburn, LSU) ACC (FSU, Miami, VaTech) Big 10 (Penn St., Ohio St., Michigan) Pac-10 (USC, UCLA, Oregon) And Notre Dame who is not affiliated.

These are most of the big name teams from big time confrences. (The big east sucks now because its 3 best teams left for the ACC)


Each confrence has a bowl tie in. And the BCS gets its pick of all three.


For exapmls, the Citrus Bowl. They get the second team from the SEC, and usually a top Big-10 team, but not always.

Every big bowl has a confrence tie in, at least one. They often pick another team that will make an intresting game from a historical perspective.

Example, the 2001 Citrus Bowl featured Tennessee vs Michigan. Michigan, i believe is the winningst program of all time, Tennessee is the winningest program sence 1928. Michigan and Tennessee both boast over 100,000 seat stadiums and teater back and forth over who is bigger, although i believe Michigan has regaind the lead, and will keep it. Both are historicly top programs. They had never playd togather. So the Citrus bowl knew there would be a good matchup

Tennessee was 1 bad half of football from playing for a National title. Michigan was having an OK season only, but it was an intriging match up. Tennessee won by 20 points or more, Great game.
