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 1 is below, and here is the link to Part 2.
New Mexico Bowl
For when you want to see ALL THE RUSHING YARDS.
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
MACtion comes to the Mountains!
Ain't no party like a BYU party.
Beef O'Brady's Bowl
I found an idea worse than a bowl named after a dumbed-down Benningan's, in St. Petersburg, between Ball State and UCF.
New Orleans Bowl
Cajuns be ragin'.
Las Vegas Bowl
You think you want to see Boise State-Washington, but you don't.
I'll miss you, Garrett GIlbert.
Little Caesars Pizza Bowl
This is what will happen to Central Michigan AND it's the proper way to consume Little Caesars Pizza.
The Clawfense rides again!
Stick to basketball, Duke
Art Briles will never not coach in an awesome bowl game.
"Hey Louisiana sounds fun...OH MY GOD NO"
Russell Athletic Bowl
Logan Thomas should know better by now.
Meineke Car Care Bowl
"Jar Barf" is what I call a Tommy Tuberville offense being run by an interim head coach.
Armed Forces Bowl
RICE ALERT! RICE ALERT! DO NOT TOUCH! COULD LEAD TO DECAPITATION!
That's not how you drop into coverage, West Virginia cornerbacks.
Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl
Don't sleep on Oregon State.
