The Best College Football Bowl Games

College football bowl games begin in mid-December and continue through the first week of January.

The best of the college football bowl games is expected to be the BCS Title game between LSU and Ohio State. College football bowl games have some great matchups and some matchups that are less than compelling. 

Let’s look at the best college football bowl games for the 2007-2008 season.  Most people will look to LSU and Ohio State and it may be one of the best college football bowl games this season but some other matchups are just as compelling.  The Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Day has very competitive college football bowl odds as Missouri is a 3 point favorite against Arkansas.  This game matches two of the Heisman runner-ups as Chase Daniel leads Missouri while Darren McFadden leads Arkansas.  A lot of college football fans are looking at the Sugar Bowl as one of the college football bowl games to watch.  It matches up perhaps the hottest college football team in the country, the Georgia Bulldogs against undefeated Hawaii.

When you consider the best college football bowl games it is hard to go wrong on New Year’s Day.  The morning game has Tennessee and Wisconsin facing each other in what should be a very competitive game in terms of college football bowl odds.  The next game is the Cotton Bowl we already mentioned.  Next up on New Year’s Day is the Capital One Bowl with Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and Florida facing Michigan in Lloyd Carr’s last game.  The Gator Bowl is up next on the college football bowl games schedule and has Texas Tech taking on Virginia. The Rose Bowl is always one of the most popular college football bowl games.  This season it has the highest pointspread as USC is a 13.5 point favorite against Illinois.  The final game on New Year’s Day is the Sugar Bowl that we already mentioned.

Two other popular college football bowl games are the Fiesta Bowl on January 2nd and the Orange Bowl on January 3rd.  The Fiesta Bowl has Oklahoma facing West Virginia while the Orange Bowl has Kansas taking on Virginia Tech.  The other game worth mentioning as one of the best college football bowl games is the Holiday Bowl where Texas faces Arizona State.  This game always has competitive college football bowl odds and is one of the most exciting college football bowl games of the year.
