The BCS title game is the last of 32 postseason affairs. If you only have time for, say, five bowls (aside from the championship), these are the ones to watch

SUGAR
Hawaii vs. Georgia, Jan. 1
Uga, meet Haka. Will the mojo of Warriors QB Colt Brennan (right) hold up against a red-hot Bulldogs defense? This is the most intriguing clash of gridiron cultures.
Georgia 38, Hawaii 31

CAPITAL ONE
Florida vs. Michigan, Jan. 1
Gators quarterback Tim Tebow will try to avoid a Heisman hangover against a Wolverines squad that is determined to send Lloyd Carr out on a winning note.
Florida 34, Michigan 24

COTTON
Arkansas vs. Missouri, Jan. 1
Between the Razorbacks' running back tandem of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones and Mizzou's slew of stars, led by quarterback Chase Daniel and all-purpose nightmare Jeremy Maclin, no bowl packs more offensive wattage.
Missouri 41, Arkansas 34

GATOR
Texas Tech vs. Virginia, Jan. 1
The Cavaliers give up 210 yards per game passing—a figure that Tech quarterback Graham Harrell usually blows by in the second quarter. This one could be as much fun as the postgame press conference of Red Raiders coach Mike Leach.
Texas Tech 45, Virginia 28

FIESTA
Oklahoma vs. West Virginia, Jan. 2
Wretched in their last game against Pittsburgh, abandoned by their coach, Pat White, Steve Slaton & Co. will line up against the team playing as well as or better than anyone around. Sooners blowout potential: moderate to high.
Oklahoma 38, West Virginia 27
