College Football BCS TV Schedule: Rose And Fiesta Bowls Promise Excitement

Happy 2012, and welcome to the best day of the college football BCS bowl season. The TV schedule says January 2nd has the two best games of the season with the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl on Tap. The Sugar Bowl comes Tuesday with the worst match ups and then the Orange Bowl on Wednesday and finally, the BCS Championship game on January 9.

The Rose Bowl kicks off on Monday, January 2 at 4:30 p.m. ET / 2:30 p.m. MT with ESPN carrying the game. The Wisconsin Badgers (10) face off against the Pac-12 Champion Oregon Ducks (5). Wisconsin brings old fashion, smash mouth, mid-west football to Pasadena with the sixth best scoring defense in the country. They are going to need that to try and slow down the high-flying Ducks offense which is ranked third in the nation at 46.2 points per game.

The Fiesta Bowl follows from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale at 8:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. MT on ESPN. This one features the offensive prowess of the third-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys (49.3 points per game) against Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal (4). This one should provide plenty of fireworks for fans that stay up and watch.

Other college football bowl games during the day on January 2 include the Ticket City Bowl at 12:00 p.m. ET on ESPNU with Houston Vs. Penn St. That's followed by the Outback Bowl on ABC at 1:00 p.m. ET with Michigan St. vs. Georgia. Then comes the Capital One Bowl also at 1:00 p.m. ET on ESPN with Nebraska vs. South Carolina. The Gator Bowl is at 1:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2 with Ohio State vs. Florida.

The Sugar Bowl is at 8:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. MT on Tuesday, January 3 with Michigan Wolverines (13) against the Virginia Tech Hookies (11). There's plenty of reason to think Boise State should be playing in this game, but they don't travel well enough for the big stage of Dallas. This game is also on ESPN.

The Orange Bowl is at 8:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. MT on Wednesday, January 4 featuring the West Virginia Mountaineers (23) against the Clemson Tigers (15) on ESPN. Don't worry if you miss this one.

The BCS Championship Game is at 8:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. MT on Monday, January 9 on ESPN. The LSU Tigers (1) will once again face their SEC rival Alabama Crimson Tide (2) in a battle of defensive monsters. Hopefully, they will combine for more than nine points.
