Happy New Year! The first day of 2009 offers up some intriguing matchups on the gridiron, but given the recent phenomena of spreading out bowl games over an entire month New Year's Day can seem a bit barren to some. Bragging rights for conferences are on the line as well, most notably in a couple of matchups between the Big Ten and SEC along with a traditional showdown in Pasadena. The league/team with the most to lose: Virginia Tech, champions of the ACC.

Gonzaga's loss to Arizona takes some of the potential lustre off this powerhouse Top 10 battle. UCONN rarely plays true road games in non-conference play, and their only other away game was a near disaster at Buffalo. (This game is in Seattle, so you might call it a semi-home game for Gonzaga anyways). Gonzaga played some awful (hideous, atrocious, etc) basketball against Arizona, and Jeremy Pargo in particular needs a major bounce back here.
