Michigan and South Carolina could be interesting, potentially, if Denard Robinson is healthy. I'm not saying this as a fan who thinks Ohio State is great--they're a decent team, but by no means great this year--but the bowl season misses the Buckeyes and the Nittany Lions. The Big Ten has some big New Year's Day tie-ins, and the fact that those two programs are completely off the table makes a few of the games tough. If we assume Ohio State would have won the Big Ten title, that gives us Stanford--Ohio State, which I think is more interesting. I'm not sure where Penn State would fit, but it would also shake things up. (Obviously, Ohio State is not eligible because of its own stupidity, I'm just saying the BCS lineup looks better this year if they're involved.)
I'm interested to see if Northern Illinois can hang with Florida State. The MAC was pretty good this year, and Florida State has a bad habit of letting teams hang around--it will be tough with their coach out of town and heading to NC State, though.
Baylor--UCLA in the Holiday Bowl could be interesting. Boise St.--Washington in Las Vegas may not be bad. Kent St.--Arkansas St. matches 10-2 teams, if you can get over all of the horrible Godaddy.com commercials you'll have to watch in their sponsored event. I'm personally interested in Texas Tech--Minnesota, but I'm guessing that the Red Raiders will blow out the Golden Gophers.
I think you've identified all of the other potentially interesting games, though, and you're right that apart from the top of the ticket the BCS isn't overwhelming this year. Oregon--K-St. has the added dimension of the Wildcats originally having the Ducks on the schedule this year, but backing out of the date. I was thinking that would be a fun national title, so I'm glad we get to see it in the Fiesta Bowl instead.
Look, man, I know a lot about whatever it is you're talking about.
