After days and days of hearing that Iowa was a lock for the Fiesta Bowl, it turns out that TCU and Boise State will be snacking on the Tostitos this year (not sure who's going to watch that game). The Iowa Hawkeyes will meet the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on January 5 in the Orange Bowl.
Iowa's only appearance in the BCS was in the Orange Bowl against USC following the great 2002 season. Georgia Tech has been to the Orange Bowl 5 times, but not since 1967 (long before the BCS obviously).
I'm actually pretty excited about this match up, though I would have liked the Fiesta Bowl better. But, it will be interesting to see how Georgia Tech's triple option does against Iowa's stout defense. We now have about a month to analyze every aspect of the game and it should be fun.
