Sugar Bowl - 8:30 p.m. ET - ESPN
#13 Michigan vs #11 Virginia Tech

There's only one game on tonight, unlike yesterday's full slate of games. It should be a good night anyway, since we get to see two quality teams on the big stage.

If Virginia Tech didn't have to play Clemson this year, they might have been in the National Championship game. They have two losses, and both have come at the hand of the Tigers.

Michigan, on the other hand, is a historically great football program on the rebound after a disastrous Rich Rodriguez era. They've got their "Michigan Man" in Brady Hoke, and it is already paying off, with an outstanding 10-win season coming off the heels of 15 wins in the past 3 seasons combined.

Michigan QB Denard Robinson is the unquestioned leader of the Michigan offense, leading them in both passing and rushing. He's one of the best dual-threat QB's in the country, and my prediction is that he'll lead Michigan over the Hokies.

If you're watching the game, chat it up here throughout the evening. Give us your predictions before the game starts, and we'll see how it shakes out. As always, enjoy the game!
