Rivals.com bowl viewer's guide
It's been a rough past couple of weeks for college football fans. The regular season ended Dec. 1, and while there have been some bowl games and playoffs in lower divisions, the withdrawal pains have been severe.
Well, worry no more: Since Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern, it's been overload time. By Wednesday at about 12:30 a.m. Eastern (that should be the approximate finish time of the Sugar Bowl from New Orleans), there will have been 19 bowl games played over the long weekend.
Granted, some are aren't that appetizing. But there also are some gems.
Before Friday, just one bowl (Thursday's Holiday Bowl) had matched teams from BCS leagues. But 14 of the 19 pit BCS-league teams against each other.
So, keep your snacks and beverages lined up, turn off the phone (just turn it back on when you want to talk some smack), get the rest of the family out of the way, find a comfortable place to sit and turn on the TV.
