Bowl Lineups Set

All of the slotting, picking and matching up is done. Here's a quick guide to this year's fabulous Bowl lineups.

Ronald Martinez

'Tis the season to be couch-bound. Remote in one hand, giant turkey leg in the other, feet on an ottoman. Stare at the television, catching your last glimpses of college football until the long hibernation sets in. All dates and times Eastern. Watch-a-bility rating scale of 0 turkey legs (mow the grass instead) up to 5 turkey legs (consider divorce if threatened with shopping).


Gildan New Mexico Bowl - 1pm. 1 Turkey Leg

Nevada takes on RichRod and the Arizona Wildcats. RichRod ties his bowl appearances at Michigan in just his first season in Tuscon. (or is it Tempe? One of those.....)

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl - 4:30pm. 3 Turkey Legs

A pretty good Toledo squad takes on a pretty good Utah State squad.


San Diego County Credit Unio Poinsettia Bowl - 8pm. 2 Turkey Legs.

BYU, who scored 9 points all season long, faces San Diego State.


Beef O'Brady's Bowl St. Petersburg - 7:30pm 2 Turkey Legs

That's St.Pete, FL; not St. Petersburg, Russia. 80% sure about that, at least. Ball State versus Central Flordia.


R+L Carriers Bowl New Orleans - Noon. 1 Turkey Leg

This gets 1 turkey leg because La Lafayette is nicknamed Rajun' Cajuns. They take on East Carolina.

MAACO Bowl Las Vegas - 3:30pm. 3 Turkey Legs

Two bad teams, Boise State and Washington, square off. But at least you've heard of them.


Sheraton Hawaii Bowl - 8pm. 0 Turkey Legs

Fresno State vs. SMU. If you're watching this, you need a better family.


Little Caesars Bowl - 7:30pm. 0 Turkey Legs

Western Kentucky faces Central Michigan. These two squads combined for a 13 - 11 record.


Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman - 3pm. 1 Turkey Leg

San Jose State vs. Bowling Green. Dang, the MAC put a lot of teams into bowls this year, didn't they?

BELK Bowl - 6:30pm. 3 Turkey Legs

Cincinnati takes on the Duke Blue Devils, and this isn't basketball.

Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl - 9:45pm. 3 Turkey Legs

Baylor vs. UCLA. You lose the PAC12 title game, and you're playing on 12/27? In the Holiday Bowl? For shame.


AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl - 2pm. 3 Turkey Legs.

Frank Solich and Ohio take on UL-Monroe, who finished 4th in the SEC West.

Russell Athletic Bowl - 5:30pm. 2 Turkey Legs.

Rutgers loses their defacto conference championship, and gets to face a 6-6 Elite VaTech squad.

Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas - 9pm. 0 Turkey Legs.

Why 0 legs? Because it's Minnesota vs. one-time Top 25 squad Texas Tech.


Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl - 11:45AM. 0 Turkey Legs.

Rice vs. Air Force before Noon. Have fun.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl - 3:15pm. 3 Turkey Legs.

Former top-5 squad West Virginia takes on Syracuse. Good for you, Doug Marrone.

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl - 4pm. 1 Turkey Leg.

Arizona State plays Navy. Navy gets the turkey leg. Otherwise, forget it.

Valero Alamo Bowl - 6:45pm. 4 Turkey Legs.

Texas vs. Oregon State. Both teams spent time in the top 15. I don't know why. But this gets 4 legs because there's a strong possibility that Mack Brown gets fired at halftime.

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl - 10:15pm. 4 Turkey Legs.

TCU vs. Michigan State. Will Sparty score? Does Le'veon Bell get 65 touches? Tune it to find out.


Franklin American Mortgage Music City - Noon. 2 Turkey Legs.

A coach-less NC State squad faces Vanderbilt.

Hyundai Sun Bowl - 2pm. 0 Turkey Legs.

Silas Redd and the (7-5) Trojans take on a Georgia Tech team that quit 4 games ago. Gradulations, Silas.

AutoZone Liberty Bowl - 3:30pm. 1 Turkey Leg.

Iowa State vs. Tulsa. Maybe Paul Rhoades cries in the post game speech.

Chick-fil-A Bowl - 7:30pm. 5 Turkey Legs.

Clemson's offense versus LSU's defense. Should be fun. Especially mixed with booze.

1/1/2013 Gator Bowl - Noon. 5 Turkey Legs.

Northwestern vs. Mississippi State. Will this be jNW's first bowl victory in 50+ years?

Heart of Dallas Bowl - Noon. 0 Turkey Legs

Coach-less Purdue versus Oklahoma State. Purdue goes 6-6, fires its coach, and lands a New Year bowl. Thanks, Jim Delany.

Capital One Bowl - 1pm. 4 Turkey Legs.

Georgia vs. the mauve-shirt defense of Nebraska. Sounds like a good game from the names. Probably won't be.

Outback Bowl - 1pm. 5 Turkey Legs.

Michigan versus Sacer-line-uh, and the Head Ball Coach.

Rose Bowl - 5pm. 3 Turkey Legs.

The 3rd best team in the Leaders Division, Wisconsin, versus Pac12 Champ Stanford.

Discover Orange Bowl - 8:30pm. 1 Turkey Leg.

If you have nothing else to do, then watch Northern Illinois - who lost a close one to Iowa - face perennially over-ranked Florida State. Whoop-dee-doo. Congrats, Orange Bowl. Reconsidering your partnership with the ACC yet?


All-State Sugar Bowl - 8:30pm. 2 Turkey Legs.

Last year 2 million people tried deep fat frying their turkey legs, and 15 people succeeded in setting their house on fire. Thanks for the info, Pedro Cerrano. Louisville vs. Florida.


Tostitos Fiesta Bowl - 8:30pm. 4 Turkey Legs.

Oregon vs. Kansas State. The over-under is set at 6 billion points. Take the under, because Chip Kelly's offense never scores more than 24 when the opponent has more than 5 days to prepare.


AT&T Cotton Bowl - 8pm. 4 Turkey Legs.

Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma. This one will feature 6 billion points.


BBVA Compass Bowl - 1pm. 4 Turkey Legs.

Why 4 legs? Two words: Tino. Sunseri. Pittsburgh versus Ole Miss. Bring it, Rebs.

1/6/2013 Bowl - 9pm. Negative 3 Turkey Legs.

Kent State versus Arkansas State. And, if you tune in, you have to watch the stupid GoDaddy commericals which, for some reason, feature Danica Patrick. Barf.


Discover BCS National Championship - 8:30pm. 5 Turkey Legs.

Alabama versus Notre Dame. Here's hoping the Domers lose by 72.
