Might as well have one.
I think USC has the edge on paper, but I'm going to pick Penn State to tough out a win. Points will be hard to come by against this USC defense, though.
While this bowl season hasn't been terribly interesting thus far, as other posters have noted, this at least looks like a good matchup. While I'm not going for any team, I really hope that, at the least, the Nittany Lions don't get obliterated so we're spared all the "USC is the best team in the country" talk that has become traditional at the end of virtually every year from the USC media-lovers.
I'm not too concerned on what this means to the conferences; I happen to think looking blandly at bowl games is a bit short-sighted. It's not like the entire Pac-10 is going to play the entire Big-10 in the bowl season.
