What would also make the predictions simpler would be if I weren't such an idiot to forget Oklahoma:

Rose: OSU v. USC
Fiesta: Oklahoma v. Georgia
Orange: Kansas v. ACC winner
Sugar: Hawaii v. SEC winner

I don't think it's that egregious for 11-1 Kansas to get in ahead of 11-2 Missouri even if Kansas did lose the head-to-head and both of MU's losses were to Oklahoma. Just because OU is a top 10 team doesn't mean you get to pretend those losses didn't happen. Also, I don't think there's much appeal in yet another OU-MU match-up if OU has already won it twice.

On the Illinois subject, I would agree with the Rose bowl taking them. Everyone calls the Rose weird for being all about tradition/history but I think it contributes to the bowl's immense popularity. Illinois has had some very bad performances and some very good performances. If you're looking for potential upset drama, they're a great choice.

iron81, there is no way the Orange takes Kansas ahead of Georgia. Also, you need to go back to forgetting Oklahoma again. Since you have OSU in the Rose, you must have MU in the NC, so Oklahoma is out (only 2 from a conference).

Pretty please, one more shot if Missouri wins?

Rose: Kansas v. USC
Fiesta: Oklahoma v. ASU
Orange: Georgia v. ACC
Sugar: Hawaii v. SEC

I just hope this one doesn't sound stupid.

This makes sense if Missouri loses. If they win, replace Oklahoma with OSU, then swap OSU and Kansas.

Two teams from each conference (unless the NC doesn't count?), so Missouri, Kansas and OU can't all go.

iron, at least you made an effort to lay it out there when no one else is.

I agree that your list is pretty reasonable if Missouri loses. I think the Rose takes Illinois over us, but I would be thrilled to go to the Rose bowl.
