    Looks like Virginia Tech and Tennessee in the Peach-Fil-A Bowl. That won't not draw.

    And SMU is going to Hawaii. God bless 'em.

    If Hawaii beats da Badgers this weekend the Mustangs will play the Rainbow Warriors on Dec. 24.

    That Tech-Tennessee game is one I can get behind as a Tech fan. Should be a blast.

    Damn right. I've been looking forward to that matchup for a long time. Do New Year's in DC. We'll party!! :)

    Folks in Knoxville aren't so sure this is a done deal. UT could fall to Independence Bowl and be replaced by UGA in the used2BPeach.

    Weren't Tech and Tennessee talking about playing at the track in Bristol awhile back? Did they ever get anywhere with it?

    Didn't UT already get the invite and accept? It's VT that's waiting, from what I hear.

    Yes and no.

    If a bunch of things fall Tech's way, there's still a very outside shot of a BCS berth. I think that's what Tech is waiting for.

    No invitation has been confirmed and the fan base anxiously believes the Atlanta trip is falling apart.

    Tech can't accept a bowl bid yet because they haven't been released by the BCS. They're in the top 14 in the BCS standings thus still eligible for a BCS slot. There's almost no chance they'll get one though.

    Bruton Smith offered Tech AND Tennessee $20 million to play at the speedway. He was going to turn the infield into a field and make a big day out of it. And if anyone could do it, he could.
    There was a very small window to get it done, thanks to previously scheduled games and all that nonsense. It never worked out.
    He was as serious as a heart attack. He was going to give each school a check for 20 mil.

    FSU to the Gator Bowl could be real interesting to watch, as it will mess with how things play out in the ACC's bowl structure. Wonder if it will happen?
