BLOG: Top 10 Bowl Games

Posted: Updated:
We are right in the meat of the bowl season, but the best is yet to come.

10. (Russell Athletic Bowl) Miami vs. #18 Louisville – Dec 28th 5:45 p.m. ESPN

Last chance for Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to make a statement.

9. (Alamo Bowl) #10 Oregon vs. Texas– Dec. 30th 5:45 p.m. ESPN

The Longhorns say goodbye to Mack Brown, but can they stop the Ducks?

8. (Chick-Fil-a Bowl) #24 Duke vs. #21 Texas A&M – Dec. 31st 7:00 a.m. ESPN

More than likely the last time we will see Johnny Football in an A&M jersey.

7. (Fiesta Bowl) #15 UCF vs. #6 Baylor – Jan. 1st 7:30 p.m. ESPN  

I really like this UCF team, but I think Baylor will have a little too much fire power.

6. (Capital One Bowl) #19 Wisconsin at #9 South Carolina – Jan. 1st 12:00 p.m. ABC

Both of these teams matchup well, and it’s the last time we will see Jadeveon Clowney with the Gamecocks.

5. (Cotton Bowl) #13 Oklahoma State vs. #8 Missouri – Jan. 3rd 6:30 p.m. FOX

Should be a high scoring shootout in this BIG12 flashback game.

4. (Sugar Bowl) #11 Oklahoma vs. #3 Alabama – Jan. 2nd 7:30 p.m. ESPN  

Will Alabama show up for this game?

3. (Orange Bowl) #12 Clemson vs. #7 Ohio State – Jan. 3rd 7:30 p.m. ESPN  

I think this is one of the more evenly matched games this bowl season.   

2. (Rose Bowl) #5 Stanford vs. #4 Michigan State – Jan. 1st 4:00 p.m. ESPN

Two top 5 teams playing in the granddaddy of them all! Need I say more?

1. (BSC National Championship) #1 Florida State vs. #2 Auburn – Jan. 6th 7:30 p.m. ESPN    

The title game that no one predicted, but everyone will enjoy. I think this game has potential to be one of the best of the BCS era.
