For some actual bowl game coverage, here's the full schedule, along with picks for each game and watchability ratings. But that's boring!
Hello sports connoisseur, Robert "Bobby Big Wheel" Wheel here. I know that you're a busy guy or gal these days, what with all the Christmas shopping and closing deals before the end of the fourth quarter and mistress stuff. And that means you probably don't know which bowls this season are worth watching.
The answer, of course, is all of them. We're about to enter eight months of hell that contain no football, and there'll be a night in July when you're at the bar trying to talk yourself into caring about a late night Mariners-Astros game, and you'll wish that you had watched the Holiday Bowl when you had the chance.
But I want to make sure you know what you're in for, so here are my GIF previews of each bowl. Part 2 is below, and here is the link to Part 1.
Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl
Andrew Maxwell still needs some more experience.
Music City Bowl
Mike Glennon's last chance to show off for the pro scouts!
Mr. Kiffin, we'd like you to meet our friend named Juarez, Mexico.
WOOO, MEMPHIS BOWL GAME! (the city not the school because lololololol that'll never happen)
Les Miles and Dabo Swinney are coaching against each other and nothing is outside the realm of possibility.
Northwestern will find out that CLANGA is, in fact, SEC as hell.

Never change, Purdue.

The Florida offense personified.

Jim Delany's the only one who's excited for this one.
POINTS ON POINTS ON POINTS.
Thanks for playing, NIU!
It's a hell of a consolation prize.
BBVA Compass Bowl
The victim is Pitt. The truck is going to Birmingham every year.
Because college football is almost always stupid, but we should cherish the few brief moments when it's great.
