    I am in no way an expert prognosticator, but based on what I have read I am not seeing much of a chance of Iowa in the Citrus in Orlando. If the other options are San Diego or San Francisco I can see there being a record of fewest fans attending those games b/c of cost. $500+/ticket to those locations. If you are buying for a family, it gets real very quick. Orlando on the other hand is a bit more manageable.

    Has anyone seen a non-Iowa SID employee report that the Citrus was a viable option? I have only seen Michigan and maybe WI.

    If it the Gator in Jax, probably nobody but the players parents will show up. That place is a dump.

    Wisconsin would go to the Rose. They won't be penalized for playing an extra game.

    What game would be the most enjoyable for the players? I think a trip to SanDiego would be a nice reward for them. Hope it’s the Holiday Bowl.

    I think Wisconsin has to win to get to the Rose. PSU is sitting there at 10-2 and #10

    As a hawk fan in Sacramento I am very selfishly hoping for the red box bowl. I am very confident I could walk up and get amazing seats for pennies. If hawk fans are willing to fly from Minneapolis they can save major coin. Also look at Oakland and Sacramento airports depending where you're coming from to save money. Hell, if it's indeed in San Fran I'll let a couple hawks sleep on my pullout and we can carpool.

    “That place” being the city or the stadium?

    So penalize for playing in a title game while Penn State just sits.

    That would be a crap sandwich bowl after this season if that ended up being it.

    Not saying I agree with it, but it isn’t out of the question. 10-2 Penn State against 9-3 Wisconsin

    Correct; but it is a typical 3rd in your Division, 6th in your Conference bowl selection.

    If Wisconsin's loses to OSU, 2 of their 3 losses would have come from OSU. PSU lost to OSU also. PSU also played in the Rose 3 years ago...Wisc 7-8 yrs ago. Head-head..Wisc is better than PSU imo.

    I don't disagree, but the prospect of being able to see the hawks live an hour from my house is very exciting.

    I worked in the Mission district for a summer. We stayed in Pacifica right on the beach. Surfed at Half Moon Bay on the weekends. Great times.

    Penalize Penn St because they play in the tougher East?

    SOS, Wisconsin 38 and Penn State 41. So yes, the Penn State schedule was miles more difficult. Basically, it's Ohio State and then everyone else in the Big 10 this year. I could make the argument that PSU is the second-best team in the league this year because they are the only team to be semi-competitive with OSU. But either PSU or Wisconsin would be deserving. I suppose Minnesota might also be an option for the Rose.

    Big 10 has become the Big 1 and everyone else. Middle tier of the Big 10 is pretty good, just no one on the level of OSU (and might not be anyone in the country who is on their level).

    Florida being ranked ahead of Penn State is huge.
    This means that the Orange Bowl would select Florida, since they will be stuck with Virginia (Orange is losing ACC rep, Clemson to CFP).
    If Penn State can stay at 10, then they should get that Cotton Bowl NY6 slot vs G5 school.
    Auburn is 11 and Alabama is 12 and will probably play in the Citrus and Outback Bowl, respectively.

    For the B1G, Citrus would be either: Minnesota/Iowa/Michigan
    Citrus is very chalky and would take Michigan.
    Outback is Minnesota and Iowa would be Holiday.

    Think of all the fans who ponied up for the Rose despite the cost. Iowa hasn't been to the Holiday since '91 so it has the added appeal of not being yet another Florida bowl which I do think fans are a bit tired of at this point.

    Honestly, the biggest problem for me is that the game is on December 27th this year, so traveling around Christmas will be a huge pain for many. I probably won't go regardless but that's largely because I went to Vegas last week for the bball tourney there and can't really afford to go to both.

    In my experience, SMF is rarely cheaper than OAK or SFO. Sometimes San Jose is, though.

    not sure. Wisky won their division. PSU didn’t. If Wisky gets fleeced then maybe they go with Ped St, but if it’s close I bet it is Badgers.

    The timing of the Holiday Bowl works for us. Off work from 12/14 until 1/2. Kids out of school starting 12/21 until 1/2. Problem is flight costs. Could fly into Vegas then drive.

    East won head-to-head 11-10.
    OSU, Indiana and Minn swept cross-division games.
    Maryland, Rutgers and NW got swept.

    Just eliminating the PSU East loss.
    The "East is better" is an easy narrative and one probably wrong if you eliminate OSU.

    Holiday Bowl - Friday night 8PM on FS1, owns the time spot

    Redbox Bowl - Monday afternoon 4PM on FOX, up against Music City Bowl

    Why are we even discussing this? People have to work on Monday, nobody in the country will be watching the Redbox Bowl. What a dog bowl game that is.

    Minnesota best PSU, Wisky beat Michigan. All top teams in the East have a loss to the West except tOSU. Obviously tOSU is clearly #1. 2-6 are a toss up on any given day.

    It is a crap bowl which is why Mich State played in it last year when their record sucked.

    Then the committee would have already had Penn State above Wisconsin and they do not. Wisconsin will not get penalized for a loss in an extra game.

    There is buzz on the street in Iowa
    City, that the Hawkeyes are headed
    to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego.

    Barta has said several times now that
    Iowa will not be in the Gator Bowl.

    OSU is tougher. The rest of the conference is pretty even. The West is probably better top to bottom than the East.

    Collegefootballnews is now projecting Iowa v. Auburn in the Citrus Bowl. With OSU, Wisky and PSU all in the playoff/NY6 mix, everyone else then moves up one in the pecking order. Michigan, Minnesota, and Penn State have all been more recently than Iowa so there's a very real shot of going to Orlando.
