Fiesta Bowl: TCU vs. Boise State
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) _ No. 3 TCU and No. 6 Boise State will meet in the Fiesta Bowl, marking the first time a BCS game other than the championship game had a matchup of unbeaten teams on January 4th.

It's also the first time two teams from conferences without automatic bids to the BCS have played in the five big-money bowls in the same season.

Mountain West champion TCU (12-0) earned an automatic bid to become a BCS buster for the first time in school history.

Western Athletic Conference champ Boise State (13-0) became the first team from a non-automatic qualifying conference to receive an at-large bid.

The Horned Frogs and Broncos played in the Poinsettia Bowl last season. TCU won 17-16, to hand Boise State its only loss of the season.
