My Top 15 best College Football bowls

#2. VIZIO  Rose Bowl (#5 Stanford vs. #4 Michigan State)


#3. ALL-STATE Sugar Bowl (#11 Oklahoma vs. #3 Alabama)


#4. AT&T Cotton Bowl (#9 Missouri vs. #13 Oklahoma State


#5. Discover Orange Bowl (#12 Clemson vs. #7 Ohio State)

#13. Russell Athletic Bowl (#18 Louisville vs. Miami)


#14. Hyundia Sun Bowl (#17 UCLA vs. Virginia Tech)


#15. AdvoCare V100 Bowl (Arizona vs. Boston College)





Why?: I'll explain why I ranked the bowl games like I ranked them.


#1 Game is obviously #2 Auburn vs. #1 Florida State, because its the BCS National Championship game.  And #1 vs. #2 fighting for all the marbles.  And to see if #2 Auburn will be able to respond in the BCS National title game vs #1 13-0 Florida State.



#2. The Rose Bowl game, is because I thought it will be really interesting to see two smash-mouth football teams in #5 Stanford vs. #4 Michigan State.  And not only that, also because of the running game of #5 Stanford vs the defense of #4 Michigan State



#3. The Sugar Bowl, I have this one #3 because I think it will be interesting to see how #3 Alabama and #11 Oklahoma will play after their latest games.  And if #11 Oklahoma will be able to move the football vs that stout defense in the #3 Alabama Crimson Tide.


#4. The AT&T Cotton Bowl, because of the matchup really #9 Missouri vs. #13 Oklahoma State.  I really think it will be interesting to see how #9 Missouri plays coming off a loss, and how #13 Oklahoma State. plays coming off of their loss.  And if Oklahoma St. will be able to score like they did vs #6 Baylor, and if #9 Missouri will be able to pass well with 6'6 Dorial Green-Beckham.


#5. Discover Orange Bowl, #12 Clemson vs. #7 Ohio State this game will be very very interesting game to see how #7 Ohio State will play after getting their BCS title hopes crushed.  And how #13 Clemson will stop OSU's running game.


#6. Capital One Bowl, the best non-BCS bowl game in my opinion.  #9 South Carolina vs. #19 Wisconsin.  It will be really fun to see how SC will try to shut down Wisconsin's rushing offense.


#7. I think it will be great to see, how #6 Baylor's offense will play vs. #16 UCF's defense it will be fun.  Because UCF has played great vs teams like Louisville, but bad vs team's like 10-loss Temple.



#8. The Outback Bowl, will be very interesting to see, because of how LSU will respond with their starting QB Zach Metteberger, and if the freshmen QB Anthony Jennings will be able to lead LSU past an Iowa team coming off a victory over Nebraska.



#9. Valero Alamo Bowl, will be a fun one to watch because it will be fun to see if #10 Oregon will be able to get up after winning a close one vs Oregon State...and if Texas will be able to bounce back after their loss to #6 Baylor.



#10. The TaxSlayer.com Bowl, is going to be great to see...these to teams faced off last year.  And it will be interesting to see much like #14 LSU, if #22 Georgia will be able to bounce back after their starting QB Aaron Murray and NFL prospect got injured, and if Bo Pelini faces any pressure with possibly his job on the line.



#11. Chick-fil-A Bowl will be awesome to watch.  Johnny Manziel and his Texas A&M Aggies vs. a Duke team who accomplished a 10-win season.  And if Duke will be able to defend Johnny Manziel.  Will be another exciting thing to watch.



#12. #23 Fresno State vs. #25 USC in the Holiday Bowl will be really fun to watch.  Because of how USC's defense plays vs Fresno State's high-powered offense, who scored 52 vs San Jose State in a disappointing loss.  But came back to beat Utah State 24-17.



#13. The Russell Athletic Bowl will be a great one to watch.  Because if Teddy Bridgewater will be able to pass vs Miami, a Miami team who went down hill after losing to #1 Florida State 41-14...if they will be able to bounce back in their bowl game vs #18 Louisville.


#14. The Hyundia Sun Bowl will be a really, really fun game to watch.  Virginia Tech is 8-4 and coming off a victory 16-6 over rival Virginia.  And it will be great to watch VT's D-line vs UCLA's QB Brett Hundley.


#15. This football game Arizona vs. Boston College is the most underrated bowl game in college football.  Two Heisman worthy players Ka'Deem Carey vs. Heisman finalist Andre Williams.  It will be great to see how these two players run vs these defenses.
