6. Heart of Dallas Bowl - Purdue vs. Oklahoma Statehttp://news-test2.sportsinteraction.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1341/files/slideshow-gallery/Oklahoma-State-Cowboys-Mike-Gundy.jpg
Nothing against the Cowboys here, I just can’t see anyone wanting to watch a 6-6 Purdue team.
5. Capital One Bowl - Georgia vs. Nebraskahttp://news-test2.sportsinteraction.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1341/files/slideshow-gallery/Georgia-Bulldogs-Jarvis-Jones.jpg
Two teams coming off the back of conference title game losses mean this game lacks the fire of years past.
4. Gator Bowl - Mississippi State vs. Northwesternhttp://news-test2.sportsinteraction.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1341/files/slideshow-gallery/Northwestern-Wildcats-Kain-Colter.jpg
It’s all about one thing. Can the Wildcats finally end their bowl curse?
3. Rose Bowl - Wisconsin vs. Stanfordhttp://news-test2.sportsinteraction.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1341/files/slideshow-gallery/Stanford-Cardinal-Stepfan-Taylor.jpg
I hate putting the Grandaddy of them all this low but an 8-5 Wisconsin team does little to inspire.
2. Orange Bowl - Northern Illinois vs. Florida Statehttp://news-test2.sportsinteraction.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1341/files/slideshow-gallery/Northern-Illinois-Huskies-Jordan-Lynch.jpg
Who doesn’t love a good David and Goliath battle? Especially when David has a dual-threat quarterback like Jordan Lynch.
1. Outback Bowl - South Carolina vs. Michiganhttp://news-test2.sportsinteraction.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1341/files/slideshow-gallery/Michigan-Wolverines-Denard-Robinson.jpg
It’s Denard Robinson’s last game with Michigan and he’ll be hunted by Jadaveon Clowney. Bring. It. On!
