Mostly whatever's on at the moment. 
On paper, I guess the return of Alvarez and Miss State v. Northwestern are probably be the most inriguing.

Was going to mention ^^^^this too...but based on the list I chose tTUN vs SC.  Only reason is I'm starting my rooting for tTUN now.  Everyone should too because in order for OSU to go to the NC game next year tTUN has to be good.  IF they can beat SC...that would be a good spring board into next year.  Considering their embarrassment in week one vs Bama wasn't a good start...hoping they finish on a high note.

Why can't the other B1G teams win their respective games instead?

Because they're not good enough....

BTW, I was mostly implying that I would have trouble rooting for scUM.  In general, though, I understand the argument that the conference needs to be perceived as strong.  Regardless, I'm not sure an 8-4 scUM team is an even match for a 10-2 South Carolina team.

Michigan does not need to be good for us to go to the title. We will start the season in the top 3 most likely, and as long as We go undefeated we will be in the title. That being said, Michigans schedule is almost as laughable as ours and realistically they have a shot at being undefeated entering the game, the more likely gonna be 9-2 or 10-1

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

You're dead wrong...most experts (if you want to call them that) have consistently said that a 12-1 SEC team will over step us this year...or next year due to OSU's weak schedule.  We need the entire B1G to be good...but most of all tTUN.  You can't tell me tB1G was as strong as any conference besides the Big East this year... or hell, even the MAC for crying out loud.  They even had more highly ranked teams than tB1G.  We'll see next year who's right or wrong...I'm going with tTUN must be good or we don't go...especially if there are two good SEC teams...then we're really in trouble.  Face it TRIV...all the polls and voters are on the SEC's you know what...we need tTUN to be good.  BTW 9-2 or 10-1 is pretty damn good for tTUN considering their offense will be down...their defense will be good though.

Alvarez is 3-0 in the Rose Bowl.  I want to see him go to 4-0.
(it will also help me immensely in my pool)

FitzBuck is clearly the winner.  Not even close.

I like Alverez & also want him to win. I am rooting for all the B1G teams this year in Bowl games. If they win a bunch, then all that talk about how weak the B1G is would stop...or at least slow down. 
Unfortunately, I am also a realist & understand that most of the teams don't have a rats chance, but I'll stay hopeful...The appearance of a strong B1G is good for OSU & I love OSU.

No love for Northwestern.

From the list, only Wisconsin vs Stanford. The rest i'll watch just for laughs.

Surprised Purdon't was on there instead of Michigan St / TCU.  Of course it will be quite enjoyable watching TSUN get their asses handed to them.

I'll watch all of them just for laughs.  Won't go out of my way to watch any of them.  You never know, I might have something more interesting to do like watch the paint dry in the basement.

If you're going to watch paint dry, I would do it in a more ventilated space than the basement (unless that is the point...)

I still think NW has the best shot at winning, but I simply like to watch football, so I'll probably watch as many of these games as possible.

I actually think MSU will beat TCU, but NW is in the mix.  I just think that their offense will struggle against a team with a defense and their defense is not good enough to contain the other offense.  Should be a good game though.

Definitely Nerdwestern. I want to see them finally get a bowl win, but even their losses have been *incredibly* exciting the last few years.

Northwestern all the way!!!  The streak needs to end!!!!!

Seriously; Purdue vs Okie State??? That game will be over by the end of first Qtr. Would not be surprised to see the Cowboys hang 70 on the Boilers. I'm just hoping that somehow the BIG is over .500 when it's all said and done.

Heart of Dallas Bowl all day baby!  Can you say barnburner?  Yeah, if the barn is Purdue.
Rose Bowl.  Would love to see the Leaders Division 3rd place team beat the PAC 12 champion.  Poor smart kids.

The Rose Bowl is always the game I'm most interested in watching.

How disrespectful of you not putting up the Gator Bowl?

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Blowout City in the Outback Bowl will do fine
