Today’s “let’s see how long we can stretch out the Bowl season” game is the FedEx Orange Bowl featuring #8 Kansas (11-1, 7-1 Big 12) vs. #3 Virginia Tech (11-2, 7-1 ACC). Once upon a time the Orange Bowl was a big deal; for the halftime show if nothing else. This year it is a big deal because Kansas “jumped” Missouri, which relegated the Tigers to some Hog thrashing in the Cotton Bowl.
The Big 12’s Oklahoma let me down last night, but they have lost three or four of their last BCS appearances, so Kansas may be a risky pick. Still, I like their chances against a weak ACC.
