Who SHOULD Be Going to Which Bowls?

The bowls if selections were based on my C Ratings. TCU is #2 in the C Ratings; teams in parenthesis among the BCS bowls are the teams that would be selected with Alabama still going to the national championship game. Realistically Central Florida is going to the St. Petersburg Bowl (creating a USF-UCF showdown the regular season somehow missed) and Southern Miss is probably going to the New Orleans Bowl because of proximity. Notre Dame ranks ahead of UCLA, but I picked UCLA partly because Notre Dame opted out of the bowls and partly because Notre Dame would have a rematch with Nevada if they were selected. Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Louisiana-Monroe, and Louisiana-Lafayette, all 6-6 teams, are left out. All times Eastern.
