SCS.comBOWL PREVIEW - ORANGE
December 31, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The 75th edition of the Orange Bowl, featuring Virginia Tech and Cincinnati, caps off a New Yearís Day packed full of collegiate football action. Virginia Tech will be looking to end an eight game BCS losing streak for the ACC and to rebound after losing 24-21 to Kansas in last yearís Orange Bowl. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is focused on extending the Big Eastís BCS winning streak to four and to build upon the prior success of Louisville....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL PREVIEW - ROSE
December 30, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
ĎThe Granddaddy Of Them Allí is easily the best bowl game in college football. Nothing can beat the late afternoon start that allows the viewer to watch the kickoff in daylight and the 2nd half under the lights. The Big 10-Pac 10 tie-in is classic college football at its best. Listening to Brent Musburger call the game is as good as it gets after the legendary Keith Jackson retired in 2006. The Rose Bowl is all about history....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL PREVIEW - GATOR & COTTON
December 29, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
New Year's Day's bowl games continue with a pair of matchups each featuring a Big XII team. In the first, the Gator Bowl pits Nebraska against Clemson, teams who had opposite expectations coming into the year. The Cotton Bowl in Dallas, meanwhile, features Texas Tech and the Red Raiders' high-powered offense against Mississippi and Houston Nutt's "Wild Rebel" look in a matchup that could keep the scoreboard....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE PLAY BEGINS WITH NEW YEAR
December 29, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
With conference play getting underway, Iíve decided to destroy "The Week That Was" segment, which was fun while it lasted but served no purpose other than to remind you of all the things you watched on ESPN. So, if you can get over the fact that "The Week That Was" is now gone forever, here is the Weekly Preview for the first week of conference play. The Big East Conference couldnít have picked a better game to kick off....[MORE]

SCS.comBOWL PREVIEW - OUTBACK & CAPITAL ONE

Kicking off the New Yearís Day schedule are two bowls featuring battles between the Big Ten and the SEC as these two college powerhouse conferences battle for bragging rights for another season. This will be the 14th consecutive Outback Bowl featuring the Big Ten and SEC while the Capital One Bowl heads into a 16th season matching the two prestigious conferences.

SCS.comSCS.COM BOWL PREVIEW SERIES - PART VI
December 27, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
All college football fans know the best day for bowl games is on January 1st. However, there are five solid games on New Yearís Eve. The three that I am covering involve six BCS conference teams. The most interesting story line is Vanderbiltís appearance in the Music City Bowl. Vandy will be playing in its first bowl since 1982. They will be playing in their own backyard in Nashville, Tennessee. If they upset Boston College....[MORE]

December 26, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
As the final days of the year wind down, ranked teams begin making their way out of practice and back into the limelight in the pre-New Year's Bowl rush. Despite these bowls happening mid-week, there are a lot of compelling storylines and cross-conference rivalries that will begin being settled on the field for 2008-09. Today's preview looks at three great western bowl games, each with a fine matchup in the 2008....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM BOWL PREVIEW SERIES - PART IV
December 24, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The next set of games in the SCS.com bowl preview features interesting match-ups, highlighted by the first ever meeting between schools in three out of the four contests, with the only exception being the Alamo Bowl. The first game between Rutgers and North Carolina State features two teams that needed late season winning streaks to qualify for the post-season after slow starts. The next game features an interesting Big Twelve....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM BOWL PREVIEW SERIES - PART III
December 23, 2008
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Contrary to popular belief, some of the best bowls played during the bowl season happen before January 1st. A few of the Ďbestí bowls are created because top teams are slated to duke it out. Those marquee bowls tend to fall short of expectations. The majority of great bowl games, however, happen because teams are equally matched. In this article I am covering four bowls. None of the four bowls involve teams that are....[MORE]

SCS.comCHRISTMAS COMES FIRST: SLOW HOOPS WEEK
December 22, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
There isnít a whole lot to get excited about this week. Christmas time must be reserved for family, the NBA and college football bowls. But as always, the SouthernCollegeSports.com Weekly Preview rolls on, starting with the week that was. Surely youíve seen the shot by now. Cleveland Stateís Cedric Jackson nailed a 60 foot three-pointer to beat 13th ranked Syracuse on its home floor last Monday. Besides the once-in-a-lifetime....[MORE]

December 20, 2008
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
This year, the college football bowl season kicks off with a bang: four games in one Saturday to open up the postseason play in style. However, it is the next four games on the 2008-2009 bowl schedule that include some of the best pre-January matchups you will find, right in time for the Christmas holidays. Indeed, the crown jewel of the non-BCS postseason schedule is here in the early bowl season, so let's jump....[MORE]

The opening weekend of collegiate bowl action begins with four match-ups, including two brand new games in the Eagle Bank and St. Petersburg Bowls. The first Saturday of games features an interesting mix of teams, with many familiar faces in the post-season scene and a couple of teams that are thrilled to be back after extended absences in Colorado State and Arizona. Especially for both Colorado State and Arizona....[MORE]

SCS.comFUN STARTS WITH 4 MADE-FOR-CBS MATCHUPS
December 15, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Isnít it a shame that college basketball players have schoolwork to do? Because of those pesky final exams, Monday through Friday of this week will be slow for hoops fans. Just be patient, because Saturday could be one of the best days of the year in college basketball. Before we get to that, letís look at the week that was. Tennessee traveled to Philly for an early-morning clash with Temple and came away with a stunning....[MORE]

For the second straight year the Missouri Tigers headed to the Big 12 Championship. Unlike this year the game was played in what is becoming Mizzouís ďhome away from home,Ē Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Despite the friendly confines Mizzou was unable to clinch the conference title and fell again at the hand of the Oklahoma Sooners. Our journey to Kansas City began Friday morning just after 8 when we piled....[MORE]

The teams will meet on January 8th in Miami, Florida to battle it out and see who is crowned national champion. Although Oklahoma is a....[MORE]

SCS.comACTION HALTS WITH HOLIDAYS APPROACHING
December 8, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Itís been a great first month of basketball. Unfortunately, the upcoming week may be a snoozer. This week does feature a couple of top 20 match-ups with Georgetown/Memphis and Texas/Villanova, but the rest of college basketball seems to have taken the week off. I donít have many suggestions for you to spend your time, since bowl season isnít here yet and hoops has slowed down. Anyway, hereís a recap of the week....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE TITLES ON THE LINE IN WEEK #15
December 4, 2008
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Although all of the top teams won impressively this past weekend, there was a shake-up at the top of the BCS standings as Oklahoma has positioned themselves in the second slot in the race for the national championship game while Texas fell to third position in the controversial BCS rankings. Looking ahead, there remains the potential for additional changes atop the polls as we head into the final weekend....[MORE]

SCS.comNOT SO GOLDEN: MIZZOU LOSES TO RIVAL KU
December 3, 2008
By Michael, SCS.com Staff Writer
One of the few bad things about working for any athletic department is that holidays are essentially non-existent. Those managers who go to practice every day spend Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on the practice field and then left Friday to go to Kansas City. I spent Friday night at a friendís house in Kansas City and met the guys at Arrowhead Stadium early Saturday morning. The game was an early morning kick off....[MORE]

This is the final regular week of articles from the SCS staff and the last chance to make those moves in your pickem pool before we all try to prove how well we know the bowls. Essentially those who beg for a playoff have their semifinals this week, and nobody would be complaining about the....[MORE]

December 1, 2008
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Itís cold outside, the days are getting depressingly shorter and ESPN is showing hoops all night long. Yep, itís basketball season all right. Feast Week featured some outstanding basketball, but I did feel a bit empty watching so many pre-season tournaments played in front of such sparse crowds. That wonít be the case this week, unless you consider an attendance of 65,000 at Ford Field a sparse crowd....[MORE]
