The Power Wry BS Rankings and 2010 Bowl Season Preview

The Power Rye is the most accurate ranking of college football available. Each week, I feed all the facts, figures, stats, scores, and a pint of rye whiskey into the Power Rye ranking matrix. Two days later, I pinch off a post.
  1. Auburn (13-0) Defeated South Carolina 56-17.  Auburn is looking forward whooping up on Oregon in the BCS title game, and then vacating the title sometime next summer.
  2. Oregon (12-0) Defeated Oregon St 37-20 in the civil war.  What is the civil war in Oregon, hippies vs beatniks?
  3. Wisconsin (11-1) Plays TCU in the Rose Bowl.  They're the underdog for some stupid reason.  They will destroy TCU by 30.
  4. Ohio State (11-1) plays Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl.  Here's hoping that the stench of one year in Ann Arbor clings to Ryan Mallett long enough for OSU to kick the SEC curse.
  5. Michigan State (11-1) Plays Alabama in the Capital One Bowl.  As a side bet, the losing coach has to smile.  High stakes for Saban and Dantonio.
  6. Stanford (11-1) plays Va Tech in the Orange Bowl.  Soon to be named the giant fraud bowl.
  7. Arkansas (10-2)  Feel free to take the Buckeyes lightly.  Please.
  8. LSU (10-2) plays Texas A&M in the cotton bowl.  One of the ones that you will probably skip, unless you have three TVs.
  9. Oklahoma (11-2) Defeated Nebraska 23-10 plays Connecticut in the Fiesta Bowl.  Check your local listings for something worth watching.
  10. TCU (12-0) Still waiting for their whooping from the badgers.
Other bowls of note:

Outback Bowl: Florida vs. Penn State a.k.a. The Quitter vs The House Guest that won't leave.
Sun Bowl: Notre Dame vs Miami.  20 years past relevancy.

That's it really.  The rest are late night TV filler.
