Brigham Young University faces Ohio State today at Orlando, Fla., in one of the more attractive matchups of the college football postseason.
The Cougars and the Buckeyes meet in the Citrus Bowl at 9:30 a.m. PST (Channel 4). In other bowl matchups, Georgia plays Arizona in the Sun Bowl at El Paso at 9:45 a.m. PST (Channel 2) and Alabama meets USC in the Aloha Bowl at 5:15 p.m. (Channel 11).
BYU entered last season's Holiday Bowl ranked No. 1 and preserved that status with a 24-17 victory over Michigan.
Quarterback Robbie Bosco says that this season's squad is even better, but this year's Cougars cannot win the national title. They enter the Citrus Bowl with an 11-2 record.
The Cougars lost any shot at repeating as national champions on Oct. 26 in a loss to Texas El Paso.
BYU's successor as national champion should emerge Wednesday in the Orange Bowl, when No. 1 Penn State faces No. 2 Oklahoma.
