If anyone's complaining, it's not the Broncos.
``We're excited. We love San Diego. A lot of our players are from Southern California and this is a great, great matchup with TCU,'' Boise State coach Chris Petersen said.
Also Sunday, the scoffed-at ACC sent an NCAA-record 10 teams to bowl games, while Mississippi coach Houston Nutt got a chance to go the Cotton Bowl and Notre Dame's Charlie Weis learned he'll be going back Hawaii.
Although Arkansas went to Dallas last season, Nutt resigned in November. Weis has been to the islands twice to woo a high school linebacker into joining the Fighting Irish, who are playing Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl.
Nutt and the Rebels - who gave top-ranked Florida its only loss - will face No. 8 Texas Tech in the final game in the actual Cotton Bowl before the game moves to a shiny, new NFL field.
P Top 25.
No. 13 Oklahoma State faces No. 15 Oregon in the Holiday Bowl, No. 16 Georgia meets No. 19 Michigan State in the Capital One, No. 22 Northwestern plays No. 25 Missouri in the Alamo, No. 18 Pittsburgh will see No. 24 Oregon State in the Sun and No. 9 Boise State takes on the 11th-ranked Horned Frogs.
Boise State was perfect two seasons ago and made the most of it, shocking Oklahoma in a highly entertaining Fiesta Bowl.
