There are three BCS-eligible undefeated teams. Two will play for the national title. The third will play Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl today.
"After 10 years, we finally got to a point where all eyes of America are on them and they're getting the chance to prove what kind of program we have," TCU Coach Gary Patterson said of his players. "At some point in time, I'd like to shut my eyes [and think], 'Hey, we just won the Rose Bowl.' Because if you think about where we came from 13 years ago, we had to walk a mile and a half to the practice field. We had to pull partitions in an old weight room to have meetings. We didn't really have any office space. We didn't have an indoor [practice facility], we didn't have practice fields, and to know where we are right now 13 years later is quite a true story."
