Was hoping for Rutgers or Texas Tech but um...ok

"LSU won the Bowl Championship Series title by beating Ohio State last season. Appalachian State won its record third straight title in what used to be called Division I-AA by beating Delaware.

Appalachian State and LSU were scheduled to play in 2009, but the game was moved up a year to accommodate an opening in the Tigers' schedule. The teams will now not play in 2009."

A little update to how the game came about:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20...el/02/12/lsu.appstate/index.html?eref=mostpop

"Verge Ausberry, LSU's senior associate athletic director who handles scheduling, originally sought Texas Tech for its 2008 opener in what would have been a clash of two likely preseason top-15 opponents. Tulsa backed out of a two-year deal with the Red Raiders last month. Unfortunately, Texas Tech operates under the old Bill Snyder school of scheduling -- it hasn't scheduled a BCS-conference opponent since 2003 -- and opted instead for Eastern Washington."
