Cotton Bowl: Les Miles and the Tigers face red-hot Texas A&M, which defeated both teams in the Big 12 title game (OU and Nebraska).
Capitol One: Alabama didn't match expectations but the Crimson Tide is a good test for Michigan State, which exceeded expectations.
Maaco: Ironic role reversal. For a change Boise State is the team that must avoid an emotional letdown after missing out on a BCS bowl.
Outback: Florida and Penn State are hopeful they can return to the top 10 next season but neither is ranked in the top 25 this season.
Insight: The Big 12 might be favored in all but one game (Cotton Bowl) but Missouri will be tested in the desert by Iowa.
