The College Football Bowl Season is Half Over
Bowl Season…kudos to you if you have watched every bowl game up until now. I haven’t had the time to watch all games but I have tuned to almost all games to watch a little. The bowl season is half over as of this writing. 18 down, 18 to go. Some of the earlier games were exciting…New Mexico Bowl with Arizona beating Nevada 49-48…New Orleans Bowl, Louisiana–Lafayette over East Carolina 43-34…but there have been blow outs too. My biggest disappointment being a vet, the Armed Services. Both Navy and the Air Force made it to bowl games this year and both got blown out. Navy lost to Arizona State 62-28 and it wasn’t that close. Air Force was beat by Rice 33-14 and that game wasn’t that close, but at least they made it to the dance.
Three games I am looking forward to, tonight’s Chick-fil-A Bowl with LSU (defense) against Clemson (offense), the Cotton Bowl with Texas A&M (Heisman winner Johnny Manzell) and Oklahoma January 4th, and of course the National Championship with Notre Dame and Alabama on January 7th.
The National Championship doesn’t end the college football season though…still to come, the College Football All-Star Classic January 18th and the Senior Bowl January 26.
