The college football bowl schedule 2011 is nearing an end. Now that the college football bowl schedule 2011 has no more BCS games before Oregon vs Auburn, there are few big distractions left. The majority of bowls are finally over, and soon, the only one that really matters will be at hand. But although the Orange, Rose, Fiesta and Sugar have been played, there are still several battles left prior Monday night. Yet today, the college football bowl schedule is blank, leading to the final string of warmup acts.
Last night brought the fourth of five BCS battles, as Ohio State held off Arkansas. Two of the BCS games have been tight ones, while the other two have been blowouts. On Monday night, the Oregon-Auburn championship will be the rubber match.
But before that, the college football bowl schedule 2011 still has other events to check off. Although all of the other major showdowns are over, one game each will be played tomorrow, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. However, there is nothing to play today, as this is a rare off day.
30 out of 35 bowls have been played, as the GoDaddy, Cotton, BBVA Compass and Fight Hunger remain before Monday night. Those battles include LSU, Texas A&M, Pittsburgh and Nevada, among others. Yet their showdowns serve as the last undercards, prior to Oregon and Auburn finally facing off.
With six days left before the college football bowl schedule 2011 ends, fans are likely exhausted over the waiting process. They have seen TCU make a statement, the Big Ten collapse, Stanford likely winning with Andrew Luck and Jim Harbaugh for the last time, and Ohio State winning with suspended stars.
But after all the minor games, blowouts, and controversies, a champion will be crowned shortly. However, since the championship is so close, and since the other BCS showdowns are over, it makes the four battles leading up to the national title clash even more insignificant.
The next four games on the college football bowl schedule 2011 include the Cotton Bowl, a Miami of Ohio team that made a huge turnaround, a Pitt team searching for a new coach again, and a Nevada squad that broke up the BCS. Still, these bowls stand to make the wait for Oregon vs Auburn even harder than the last 30 did.
For today, the college football bowl schedule is black, as experts analyze Ohio State vs Arkansas, and turn even more attention towards Oregon and Auburn. Yet tomorrow, the action resumes again, as Middle Tennessee State takes on Miami of Ohio in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
