Time for the Real Bowl Games to Begin

Great matchup, terrible game.

Tonight's Peach Bowl between top 10 teams Miami and LSU was the only bowl game that featured opposing ranked teams, played prior to the New Year. Too bad the outcome was the worst blowout thus far in the bowl season. Of the three bowls that will be played on New Year's Eve, only one team is ranked, TCU. The Horned Frogs' game with Iowa State in the Houston Bowl will be interesting though. However, the other two have some pretty uninteresting matchups.

The Meineke Car Care Bowl matchup is as ugly as the bowl name itself, 6-5 South Florida vs 6-5 NC State. The Liberty Bowl jumped the gun an invited Fresno State, right after the Bulldogs took USC to the wire. They lost their last two games and enter their bowl game on a three game losing streak. Tulsa, on the other hand, was a Western Athletic Conference doormat for nine years. Then wins the Conference USA title in its first year to earn a trip to Memphis.

Come Monday every bowl from then on will feature ranked teams against each, highlighted by the Fiesta Bowl on Monday and the Rose Bowl Wednesday night.
