BCS Bowl Projection: Mizzou vs. Wisconsin In Rose Bowl

I can't get enough of these BCS rankings, standings or bowl projections that are floating around these days. Yeah, the season is barely halfway over but it's still fun to dream.

For Mizzou, some projections including Covers.com have them going to the Rose Bowl. Here's what they said about that potential matchup:

"Missouri has surprised me, and they're talented," Rood said. "But they're very young. I just like Wisconsin’s physicality and determination. They get down in a game, they do not panic. They just settle in and play ball. Missouri's done a great job with the talent they have, but Wisconsin's a better team here."

Sure they're young but Mizzou's been consistent. Being young doesn't mean you have to be bad. What I know is that their defense has played top notch football for seven games this year and they've won all those games. I also know that the Mizzou offense has been getting better week by week and they're dangerous with Blaine Gabbert at the helm.

Of course the chances of this actually being the game may not be very good. Mizzou still has five more games plus the Big 12 Championship to go (assuming they make it that far).
