Utes in the Orange Bowl?

That's where Stewart Mandel of SI has them going this week to face Virginia Tech.  I like the idea. Of all the BCS bowls that's the one I'd like to see us in this year. Why?

Let's see. Win the Fiesta Bowl - check. Win the Sugar Bowl - check. Unfinished business - Orange and Rose. We'll get a shot at the Rose Bowl next year as part of the PAC-12, and every year thereafter. If the Orange is available this year I say take it. Especially against Virginia Tech. 

How delicious would it be to head into PAC-12 play with a very good shot at winning the conference (not saying it would happen, but not saying it won't either) and playing in the Rose Bowl after having won each of the other three BCS bowls in the previous seven years. Yeah, hand me a big ole glass of the OJ please.

From SI:

Current BCS forecast

Each week, I'll update my projected BCS lineup (as necessary) based on the latest week's games:

Title game: Alabama vs. Boise State

Rose: Oregon vs. Michigan State

Fiesta: Oklahoma vs. Pittsburgh

Orange: Virginia Tech vs. Utah

Sugar: Auburn vs. Wisconsin
