The BCS has picked new dates for its five bowl games to avoid conflicts that could possibly happen because of the NFL lockout. Here's how it looks...
quote:

While the BCS title game in New Orleans remains scheduled for Jan. 9. a Monday night, it could be moved either up to Jan. 7 or back to Jan. 10. Hancock said the Rose Bowl, which is not played in an NFL stadium, will be played on Jan. 2. The Sugar Bowl will be played on Jan. 3, which is a Tuesday, then the Orange Bowl on Jan. 4 and the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 5.

The NFL lockout was already looming when the BCS began planning for the coming season, so the organization listed two possible dates for the Sugar Bowl (Jan. 2 or 3), Orange Bowl (Jan. 3 or 4), and Fiesta Bowl (Jan. 4 or 5). With no solution to the NFL's labor strife in sight, the BCS decided it would be safest to go with the later dates for those three games.
It's amazing how much everything revolves around NFL football.

College football did right. They know they can't hold a can't to the NFL in terms of interest and TV ratings, even the BCS bowls.

This would suck.

I'm easily a bigger CFB fan than NFL fan.

NFL week 17 fell on Jan 1 so I think the Rose Bowl was on the 2nd anyway.
