Now that the college football regular season has come to an end, all of the bowl games are on the horizon. Bowl games are an American pastime that college football fans look forward to all year. Except, most fans hope their team is one of the four teams competing for the national title. The bowl games schedule for this year has just been released and the four teams have been selected to compete for the title of number one.
As far as the playoffs go, my money is on LSU to win it all. Their quarterback not only has good looks, but he is the front-runner for the Heisman trophy. They made a huge statement beating Alabama earlier in the season. I predict Ohio State will come up second, which is pretty impressive for a Big 10 team close to home. Oklahoma and Clemson will battle it out in the third place game according to my predictions.
The playoffs and bowl games will be going on all of Christmas break, so if you find yourself not knowing what to do, find a bowl game to watch.
