Getting really tired of typing Russell Athletic Bowl 10 times every week.

SB Nation: Russell Athletic Bowl vs. Miami

The Orange could be the only bowl left with an actual choice, and though Michigan State is my personal favorite team this year (and a huge challenge for Ohio State in the likely Big Ten Championship), a 10-2 Wisconsin promises too many points. Bowls love points. Other potential picks include Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State (and even Louisville), but I see those teams dropping games along the way.

After that, if Fresno State finishes ranked in the top 16 and ahead of the lowest AQ-conference champion or in the top 12, UCF (or Louisville or Houston) and the Bulldogs are your last two BCS bowl at-large picks, period. If they don't go, Clemson and Miami are on the table (since the Orange won't pair two ACC teams), in addition to the others above.
