Last Sunday the Bowl Championship Series announced the participants for all five BCS games.

First up is the January 1st Rose Bowl matchup between Wisconsin and Stanford. Even with the Cardinals being ranked much higher than the Badgers, Wisconsin could pull off an upset.

Later that night Northern Illinois and Florida State meet in the Orange Bowl. Northern Illinois enters the Orange Bowl riding a school-record 12-game winning streak. Can the Seminoles stop the BCS newcomers' winning streak?

Louisville and Florida will compete in the 2013 Sugar Bowl. With only one loss this season, the Gators may have the upper hand in this game, which could be too close to call.

Oregon and Kansas State fight it out in Glendale, AZ in the 42nd Annual Fiesta Bowl. Both teams have only one loss, this game may be a real nail biter.

Then of course it’s back to the site of the Orange Bowl. The Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL will host this year’s BCS National Championship game. It's no surprise that undefeated Notre Dame will be there, but it is Alabama who gets the chance at back-to-back BCS titles.

With the college football season coming to an end, the Heisman Trophy finalists have been narrowed down to three deserving players. Unfortunately, only one can hoist the trophy. Let’s break down the candidates.

Johnny Manziell (AKA Johnny Football): Quarterback - Texas A&M: Manziell is one truly remarkable player, 4,600 yards of total offense and 43 touchdowns, combined with his landmark upset of Alabama put him on the top of this list even though he is just a freshman.

Manti Te'o: Linebacker - Notre Dame: Te’o is the marquee player for the Fighting Irish with his 103 tackles and seven interceptions. Manti has a good chance to make history as the first “defensive only” player to win the honor.

Collin Klein: Quarterback – Kansas State: The 6’ 5”, 226 pound quarterback with 2,490 passing yards, 890 rushing yards and a combined 37 touchdowns. Klein could be the first player from Kansas State to win a Heisman Trophy.

Fanfare wishes the best of luck to all three Heisman finalists.
