It used to be must-see TV, with every big bowl game having a time slot on New Year's Day, including the bowl that would decide the national champion. More often than not, it was the Granddaddy of them all, the Rose Bowl, or the Orange Bowl later that night. Now, the Orange and Cotton bowls are played two days after New Year's, and the BCS championship game is next week. So instead of starting with the Cotton Bowl like we used to, you can watch three games at noon, and another beginning at 1 p.m. That leaves just enough time after those games to have your pork and sauerkraut, which has been simmering all day in a slow cooker, before the Rose Bowl, maybe the best matchup outside of the championship game, at 5 p.m. Today's bowl lineup: TAXSLAYER.COM GATOR BOWL Who: Nebraska (8-4)

Junior tailback Amp Lee, Florida State's leading rusher, is academically ineligible to play in the Mobil Cotton Bowl, coach Bobby Bowden said yesterday.Lee, who rushed for 977 yards and caught 26 passes for 336 yards this season, failed to meet Florida Board of Regents academic standards, Bowden said. He did meet NCAA standards, which are less stringent.The fifth-ranked Seminoles (10-2) play No. 9 Texas A&M (10-1) in the bowl."This in no way should be construed as my making a decision to leave school and turn professional," said Lee.* Athletic directors of the Big East Conference heard details about an offer from the Blockbuster Bowl and an alliance of bowls that could lead to a national football championship game.

DALLAS -- In choosing Notre Dame over higher-ranked Florida State, the Cotton Bowl not only ignored the wishes of its host school and what many believe is the intent of the first-year Bowl Coalition, but the desire of its new network partner as well.NBC, which in April reached a three-year agreement to televise the Jan. 1 game, preferred that ratings-grabbing Notre Dame play in its prime-time Orange Bowl game and Florida State face Texas A&M in the afternoon Cotton Bowl. NBC Sports sent a vice president to Dallas last week to make known its preference.

WHILE the IRS may not be the government's most popular agency, disgruntled football fans will cheer its decision to tax the irritating attachment of corporate names to college bowl games.Case in point: the Mobil Cotton Bowl. It was the just-plain Cotton Bowl for years until Mobil Corp. came up with big "sponsorship" bucks -- as much as $2 million a year -- and got its name attached to the event and its attendant publicity.The bowls will end up paying the tax, although they claim that sponsors' contributions are the charity of enlightened corporations, tax-exempt because bowl profits support collegiate athletics.

SAN DIEGO -- Whoever happens to win the Heisman Trophy next year would do well to dodge Texas A&M. Ty Detmer didn't, and he probably wishes he had.The Aggies separated each of Detmer's shoulders at different times Saturday night, knocking the 1990 Heisman winner out of the Sea World Holiday Bowl and routing Brigham Young, 65-14, at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium.It was the fourth time in six years that the Aggies have defeated the Heisman winner.Detmer looked no better against A&M than did Bo Jackson in the 1987 Cotton Bowl, Notre Dame's Tim Brown in the 1988 Cotton Bowl or Houston's Andre Ware last season in losing efforts against the Aggies.

The Rose Bowl was remarkable for many reasons - Texas quarterback Vince Young's performance, the back-and-forth fourth quarter, the amount of talent on the field. But perhaps the most remarkable aspect was that Texas' victory gave the Longhorns their first national championship since Richard Nixon was president. I'm not here to throw cold water on their triumph. (As the husband of a Texas grad proud enough to fly a state flag out our window first thing Thursday morning, I wouldn't dare.

Outback Bowl No. 8 Georgia (9-2) vs. No. 16 Wisconsin (9-2) Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fla. Time, TV: 11 a.m., ESPN Key stats: Georgia is 21st nationally in rushing defense (111.2 ypg). Wisconsin is 87th in the nation in total offense (337 ypg). About Georgia: It's vital for the Bulldogs that they hit some big plays in the passing game to open up the run. About Wisconsin: The Badgers must run effectively to win this, putting a lot of pressure on RB Anthony Davis. No legit defense is worried about Wisconsin's simplistic passing attack.

THE DALLAS COWBOYS are coming to Baltimore in tatters, and as a lifelong fan of the team, I'm staging a protest. I'm not just leaving town. I'm leaving the country. Before you pile on, please know that my weekend far away, celebrating a major wedding anniversary, was scheduled long before the Cowboys came apart at the seams. Otherwise, I would gladly be here to take my lumps as the Ravens grind them into dust. (Prediction: 27-6.) Real fans take the bad with the good, and if I'm anything in this world, I'm wedded to America's Team.

Time: 11 a.m. TV: ESPN Key matchup: Ohio State TB Jonathan Wells vs. South Carolina's front seven. Given the state of Ohio State's passing attack (it's shaky no matter who the quarterback is), the Buckeyes must run well to be productive on offense. Wells is a bruiser (6 feet 1, 230 pounds) who also has the speed to break a big play. South Carolina is solid defensively, but the Gamecocks can be run on (144.

Pressure forces out Helmick from IOC postRobert Helmick resigned under pressure as a member of the International Olympic Committee yesterday in Switzerland. That move spared Helmick and the IOC the likely embarrassment of a formal vote asking him to quit.Helmick, 54, an attorney from Des Moines, Iowa, also had resigned under pressure as president of the U.S. Olympic Committee in September. Once one of the most powerful figures in international sports and considered a potential successor to Juan Antonio Samaranch as IOC president, Helmick's 30-year sports career bottomed out in the wake of revelations he had represented six clients with ties to the Olympic movement.
