As the year begins anew, the WEPM Bowl Challenge begins its final push as the BCS gets underway with the granddaddy of them all, the Rose Bowl. It’s still anybodies game as the standings remain close going into the new year. Remember, points double for all BCS games.
George, Pete and myself sat down and talked and gave out thoughts on some of the games leading up to the National Championship.
