2008 College Football Bowl Schedule | TV Schedule for 2008 Bowl GamesThe 2008-09 College Football Bowl Schedule has been announced, with no real surprises.

As we predicted, the BCS games are as follows:

BCS National Championship: Florida-Oklahoma

Rose Bowl: Penn State-USC

Fiesta Bowl: Texas-Sacrificial Big Ten Lamb

Sugar Bowl: Alabama v Utah

Orange Bowl: Cincinnati v Virginia Tech

Quietly, Notre Dame did accept a bowl bid, as they will play Hawaii in the…wait for it…Hawaii Bowl. That’s pretty lame if you are a Notre Dame fan, but I scoff at the notion that they should turn it down. More than the actual benefit of playing in the game, going to a bowl game is HUGE from a coaching standpoint because you get an extra month of practice time with your team. Charlie Weis is down to his last chance next year, and the extra practice could help get some young players ready to step up in 2009.

Anyway, I’ll quit rambling. Here is the 2008-09 College Football Bowl TV Schedule and Matchups:
