The Annapolis Middle School Dance Company next year will become the state's first middle school to perform in a college football bowl game when it takes the field at halftime of the Orange Bowl in Miami on Jan. 3. The 12-member dance company will be among 1,000 student performers in the sporting event known for its halftime entertainment. The Orange Bowl game will be played at the 75,000-seat Sun Life Stadium, which is also the home of the Miami Dolphins and Florida Marlins. "We are very proud and excited to represent our school and all of the dancers in our country," Annapolis Middle dance company director Kendra Smith said in a statement Friday.

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)

That means local fans will be tuning in to check out former Dunbar standout Tavon Austin on the big stage. But they won't be the only ones. Austin, the Mountaineers' star wide receiver and special teams All-American , has received quite a bit of local and national media attention in advance of the game (8:30 on ESPN).

The Annapolis Middle School Dance Company hadn't completed its first year of existence when the big stage beckoned. Director Kendra Smith received a call last April from a national tour organization for school performers telling her that someone had anonymously nominated her troupe to perform at a college football bowl game. "You know you're calling Annapolis Middle School, right?" Smith asked, knowing that such honors are usually reserved for high school programs. But she was assured that the caller had indeed specified her group and its performance at the Anne Arundel County Public School Dance Festival in February.

WHILE THE Bowl Championship Series is getting harshly criticized around the country - and rightfully so - for pitting Miami against Nebraska in the Rose Bowl to determine college football's No. 1 team, there aren't any complaints in College Park. No. 6 Maryland (10-1) will play No. 5 Florida (9-2) in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 2, and any tremors you are still feeling are the aftershocks of Terps coach Ralph Friedgen's jumping up and down after learning the high-powered Gators are his first opponent in 2002.

Reading Time: Two Minutes.All No. 1 Nebraska and No. 3 Miami have to do Sunday in the Orange Bowl (NBC, 8 p.m.) is approximate the battle they staged in the same surroundings a decade ago. More than a few suggest the Hurricanes' 31-30 victory in 1984 behind quarterback Bernie Kosar over Heisman Trophy winner Mike Rozier as the Cornhuskers missed a two-point conversion try at the end is the greatest bowl game ever. Yes, it was the "fumblerooskie" game.* It's positively wonderful listening to smaller boxers detailing their trials and tribulations when it comes to weight.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Orange Bowl and the Florida Citrus Bowl are engaging in a rapidly escalating war of words as each pushes to create a national championship matchup in its arena.The Citrus is the interloper, a previously "minor" bowl and no threat to the powerful Orange in the past. But things have changed abruptly. The Citrus is in the third year of a working agreement with the Atlantic Coast Conference, and this year it is required to take the ACC champion.This year, that champion might be No. 1 Virginia.

Penn State receiver Derrick Williams is doubtful for the Orange Bowl because of an arm injury that sidelined the freshman for two months. Coach Joe Paterno said yesterday that Williams, who has been out with a broken left arm, will sit out the No. 3 Nittany Lions' game against No. 22 Florida State on Tuesday. "Derrick Williams is worth a touchdown, but I doubt, really, if he'll play," Paterno said. Williams was a key player for Penn State's high-powered offense until breaking his arm in a 27-25 loss to Michigan on Oct. 15. He caught one touchdown pass and ran for three other scores.

Midway through November, Maryland had lost three straight games and it began to look as if the team might never pick up its sixth win and become bowl eligible. The turnover-prone Terps had just lost at home to Syracuse, 20-3, in a game in which Maryland players conceded the team appeared flat. Maryland's outlook has changed dramatically since then. A team that had never won a game in November under third-year coach Randy Edsall went on to win two of its last three in the regular season.

Happy for the MAC Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun I have no idea whether Northern Illinois playing in the Orange Bowl is a strength or weakness of the BCS system, but I'm glad to see a Mid-American Conference school in a BCS bowl. Seven MAC schools are going to bowl games and it's not a coincidence. Teams in the conference have beaten Penn State, Rutgers, Iowa and others in so-called power conferences. So ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit calls NIU's inclusion "a joke. " Well if you want Oklahoma in a BCS bowl Kirk, why don't you tell the Sooners to play a little defense?

It's hard to miss the illustration of an oversized pyramid posted on a wall inside the Gossett Football Team House. In and around the black and red pyramid - which Maryland players see as they walk between the locker room and meeting rooms - are words depicting core values and goals of the Terps. Among the goals in block letters at the top are "ACC Champion," "Graduate" and "Bowl Game. " Halfway through their regular season, the Terps (4-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) aren't quite comfortable talking about a bowl game.

This is it — the final regular-season poll. Half the preseason top 10 survived: Oregon (9), TCU (5), Boise State (1), Ohio State (2) and Virginia Tech (7). Auburn opened the season 18th, Stanford 19th, Wisconsin 13th and Arkansas 17th. Nevada, like a pistol shot, rose all the way from unranked. Alabama (4) disappointed slightly and Texas (8) disappointed greatly, while Florida (6) flopped by its standards. Every team in the poll has a bowl game left to impress a one-man judge and jury.

EUGENE, Ore. — A wild year in college football concluded with a relatively tame finish. The release of the final BCS standings on Sunday only confirmed what everyone already knew. Auburn and Oregon finished first and second, respectively, and will play for the national title Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz. Texas Christian held onto the No. 3 spot to earn a berth in the Rose Bowl, while Stanford was No. 4 and Wisconsin was No. 5. Those two spots earn the Cardinal a trip to the Orange Bowl while the Badgers become the Big Ten representative in the Rose Bowl.
