No-hio State

If you were keeping your fingers crossed for a Georgia-Ohio State showdown in the Cap One Bowl, this won't come as good news.

Oregon State's star running back Jacquizz Rodgers is doubtful for the Beavers' game against Oregon this Saturday. OSU needs a win over the Ducks to clinch the Pac-10 title, thus putting them in the Rose Bowl. The ripple effects of an OSU win would likely put USC in the Fiesta Bowl and push Ohio State out of the BCS picture (with the other at-large bids going to a one-loss Big 12 team, the SEC title game loser and Utah).

If Ohio State doesn't head to a BCS game, it will almost certainly go to the Cap One where Georgia already seems like a near lock. Should Oregon State lose, however, USC would claim the Pac-10 crown, Ohio State heads to the Fiesta, and Michigan State or Iowa would be the Bulldogs' likely opponent in Orlando.

Rodgers, a freshman, has racked up 1,253 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns for Oregon State this year.

i can't imagine anything happening to give Iowa a boost over MSU to play in the cap1 bowl. MSU beat Iowa head to head AT Kinnick stadium (iowa). Iowa is a 4 loss team, granted they are on fire as of late with big wins at Minnesota and at home against PSU.

I like the idea of playing either team, but since i am from Iowa, I love that matchup even more. I just don't think it's going to happen.

Oregon sucks - their 8 victims have a combined record of 27 wins and 62 losses. They have only one win over a team with a winning record...and that team is 6-5. Oregon State played almost the entire game last week with Jacquizz and still won. The Beavers will take care of the Ducks and head to the Rose Bowl for the first time in 44 years.
