PROTEST PLAYOFF '08: Elite Eight

2008-8

THREE DAYS UNTIL KICKOFF!

Rose Bowl: With both Penn State and USC advancing to the Elite Eight, the north side of the bracket was the obvious pick for the "Granddaddy of 'em All."

Fiesta Bowl: That left the "taco chip bowl" with a shot at Ohio State and Texas - just like in real life.
