Orange Bowl or Fiesta Bowl, where do you want UConn?

UConn is in the BCS, but we're still not sure where the Huskies will be playing. They'll either take on Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl or Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. The decision is in the hands of the Orange Bowl Selection Committee, who will either scoop up the 8-4 Huskies or grab No. 4 Stanford. UConn will find out their fate tonight during the BCS Selection show (ESPN, 8:15 p.m.), but I want to know where you want the Huskies to end up.

Personally, I'm pulling for the Fiesta Bowl. Miami would be fantastic, but the Orange Bowl is played on Jan. 3, a Monday, which makes scheduling a trip a bit of a headache. The Fiesta Bowl, on the other hand, is a New Year's day game that'll be played on a Saturday, which is 10,000x more convenient. Plus, as the 1999, 2004 and 2009 men's basketball team's will attest to, UConn traditionally does pretty well in Arizona.
