BCS Championship [Florida St. vs. Auburn – Jan. 6, 8:30pm ESPN] Game On. 

Rose Bowl Game [Michigan St. vs. Stanford – Jan. 1, 5:00pm ESPN] Good old-fashioned American football. A lot of heavy breathing in Fayetteville and Ann Arbor. If you were wondering how long it has been since Michigan State has been to a Rose Bowl…

Cotton Bowl [Missouri vs. Oklahoma St. – Jan. 3, 8:00pm FOX] The close but no cigar shootout. We will partake.

Capital One Bowl [South Carolina vs. Wisconsin – Jan. 1, 1:00pm ABC] The HBC and two excellent offenses.

Orange Bowl [Clemson vs. Ohio State – Jan. 3, 8:30pm ESPN] Neither has a marquee win. That may be true after this game. But both teams score, have trouble stopping other teams from scoring. 

Alamo Bowl [Oregon vs. Texas – Dec. 30, 6:45pm ESPN] Oregon with a month to prepare vs. Greg Robinson with a month to prepare. 

Russell Athletic Bowl [Louisville vs. Miami – Dec. 28, 6:45pm ESPN] Teddy Bridgewater against a power-conference defense. Potential shootout.

ESPN] Andre Williams vs. KaDeem Carey.

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl [Kansas State vs. Michigan – Dec. 28, 10:15pm ESPN] Bill Snyder’s wizardry collides with Al Borges’ eccentricity. Also, Brady Hoke let loose in a Buffalo Wild Wings.

Chick-Fil-A Bowl [Duke vs. Texas A&M – Dec. 31 8:00pm ESPN] Johnny Manziel’s college career ends as it should, pwning a bunch of nondescript nerds. Watch out for the laser pointers.

Music City Bowl [Georgia Tech vs. Ole Miss – Dec. 30, 3:15pm] Triple-option. Young, talented Ole Miss team gets a chance to regroup. Could be something there. 

Outback Bowl [Iowa vs. LSU – Jan. 1, 1:00pm ESPN] Iowa may be prepared for nothing else, but they will be all over that fake punt, Les. 

Gator Bowl [Georgia vs. Nebraska – Jan. 1, 12:00pm ESPN2] Rematch from last year. No Aaron Murray. Nebraska on a football field. Meh. 

Sun Bowl [UCLA vs. Virginia Tech – Dec. 31, 2:00pm CBS] Verne. Gary. UCLA trying to swing pass Virginia Tech’s defense to death.

Pinstripe Bowl [Notre Dame vs. Rutgers – Dec. 28, 12:00pm ESPN] Dull game. But possible snowpocalypse/red Brian Kelly face potential. New York is a Rutgers town, so legions of fans will be out in force.

Sugar Bowl [Alabama vs. Oklahoma – Jan. 2, 8:30pm ESPN] Alabama won’t want to be there. Oklahoma will have no business being there. 

Belk Bowl [Cincinnati vs. North Carolina – Dec. 28, 3:20pm ESPN] Don’t sleep on the Riverboat Gambler or Bryn Renner’s devastating dance moves. The Belk Bowl championship ring is going to be a beaut. 

Pizza Bowl [Bowling Green vs. Pittsburgh – Dec. 26, 6:00pm ESPN] Half-hour drive from our Christmas destination. Probably won’t be making the trip out there. 

Texas Bowl [Minnesota vs. Syracuse – Dec. 27, 6:00pm ESPN] This will be a football game. 

Poinsettia Bowl [Northern Illinois vs. Utah St. – Dec. 26, 9:30pm ESPN] Would be way cooler if Chuckie Keaton was playing.
