    Welcome to ESPN Bowl Bound !!!
    Since we are in the home stretch of Season 10 here at Z2H today we will discuss some of the happenings in the Z2H world. We will also discuss the remaining games and possibilities for the remaining year.

    First things first

    [​IMG] #1. (9-0) - Remaining games - vs. #8 Alabama, vs. Ole Miss, @ Arkansas. Coach Ford and his Tigers appear to have a straight shot at the SEC Championship. However there are still a few obsticales in their way. First being the #8 Tide and next being the battle for the boot against Arkansas. If the Tigers defeat the Tide they could be on their way to yet another SEC Title game.
    [​IMG]#2. (9-1) - Remaining games - vs. Kentucky, vs. Vanderbilt.
    Coach Bossy and his Vols look to have their sights set on the Georgia Dome and the SEC Title. The Vols could also have a shot at the BCS title if they can dethrone the Tigers who are the reigning champs. Coach Bossy is a firm believer that this is the year for his Vols to make their run at the SEC and BCS title.

    [​IMG]#3. (7-1) - Remaining games - @ Oklahoma, vs. Notre Dame, vs. Colorado, vs. #17 Ohio State. The defending BCS Champs look to be primed to make another appearance into the title game. BUT with Coach Iowa on vacation for a few days he will be leaving the Huskers in the hands of the assistant coach (cpu). This is a critical time for the Huskers. Will the Huskers survive this brutal time of the year or will they falter under the command of the assistant coach ?
    [​IMG]#4 (9-1) - Remaining games - vs. Notre Dame, @ #8 Alabama. Coach Limbo could be in the best position among the top 10 teams. With having lost only 1 game this season the Tigers will most likely miss out on the SEC Title game, BUT hope is not lost. With such a high rating the Tigers could actually benefit from not making the SEC Title game. If they can finish out at 11-1 for the regular season they will be a major appeal for the BCS bowls.
    [​IMG]#9 (7-3) - Remaining games - vs. Ole Miss, vs. Vanderbilt. Coach Sabo and the Dawgs are sitting at #9 currently in the polls despite 3 losses. With two remaining games the Dawgs look to possibly make their first BCS bowl appearance under Coach Sabo. Who knows which bowl the Dawgs will end up with after this wild season is over.
    [​IMG]#12 (7-3) - Remaining games - @ Kansas, vs. #25 Ga Tech, vs. Texas A&M. Texas is currently setting at #12 in the polls. With three games remaining Coach UT looks to take his Longhorns into the Top 10 and into a major bowl.
    [​IMG]#13 (7-1) - Remaining games - vs. #3 Nebraska, @ Baylor, vs. #8 Alabama, vs. #10 Miami. The pollsters showed their disapproval of the Sooners recent loss to A&M by dropping them to #13. But dont fear Sooner fans there is still alot of season left for your team. With 3 of their next 4 games vs top 10 teams if the Sooners can get back on the winning track look for them to be right back in the mix of the BCS title talk.
    [​IMG]#20 (6-4) - Remaining games - @ Vanderbilt, vs. #10 Miami. Coach Boiler and his Gators look to finish out the season strong. Although they have had some bumps along the way they still sit in prime position to play in a big money bowl.
    [​IMG] (7-4) - Remaining games - @ #3 Nebraska. Coach Maij and the Buffs are in a position where they could determine their own fate for the remaining part of the season. Standing at 5-2 in conference play with one game remaining the Buffs could very well sneak into the Big 12 title game. How you ask ........ Well say if Nebraska was to lose to Oklahoma this week and lost again to the Buffs then we could see the Buffs make their first appearance in the Big 12 title game under Coach Maij. Only time will tell.
    [​IMG] (6-4) - Remaining games - vs. Kansas, @ Iowa State. Coach Nrg and the Tigers are eager to finish out their regular season and find out what bowl they will be appearing in this season. With the toughest part of their schedule out of the way the Tigers are still healthy and will be a team to recon with in the post season.
    [​IMG] (4-5) - Remaining games - vs. Texas Tech, @ Miss State, @ #12 Texas. Dont let the record fool you !! Coach UA and the Aggies are for real. Even though their current record is 4-5 they shouldnt be taken lightly. The Aggies are currently coming off a huge win vs the heavly favored Sooners. The remaining schedule will be a true test for the Aggies. For the Aggies to be bowl eligiable they must win 2 of the final 3 games. Something else that should be noted is that the Aggies are currently 4-2 in conference. Coach UA and the Aggies are sitting at #2 in the Big 12 South and #4 in the overall Big 12 standings. Their fate is in their own hands. Can the Aggies build off their recent big win and finish out strong ?

    So lets get some discussion going on here guys. What do you think about the current outlook ? Who is going where ?

    Hope you guys enjoyed the read.

    Looking back over the season the one game that just stands out to the Aggies coaching staff is the disappointing loss to Oklahoma State in week 7. If not for a meltdown in the 2nd quarter of that game A&M could have had a shot at winning the Big 12 South. The Aggies goal is to try and wrap up bowl eligibility with wins over Tech and Miss State and have that out of the way before heading into the season finally against the Longhorns. But it will not be easy as Tech and the Bulldogs both run wide open no huddle offensives that have given the Aggies young defense fits all year long, especially when the cpu decides to turn superheroes. If and a BIG IF the A&M can close out the year at 6-6 and get a bowl invite the Aggie coaches will be very pleased with the effort and will be looking to use that as momentum heading into the next season.

    If Neb drops, and they don't allow Fred into the NC due to sec sec, might be a NC vs CPU.
