Selection Sunday is over and the College Football Bowl Season schedule is set! But the first Bowl Championship Series (BCS) game doesn’t start until January 1st. So does that mean we have almost a month off from college football?

Eh, not so much no.

The Big 5 Bowl Games that make up the BCS (Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange, BCS Title) are the ones that feature the best teams in the country and are the ones that everyone is eagerly anticipating. But there are 29 other bowl games to tune into! The first game is the New Mexico Bowl on Dec 19th featuring Fresno State and Wyoming. Can’t make it without college football until then? The FCS (or Football Championship Subdivision of NCAA football) is in their final championship stretch until Dec 18. NCAA.Com has the full schedule.

Here is a quick rundown of the BCS Bowl Games that were announced during Selection Sunday. As January grows closer we’ll be doing an in depth analysis of each games. Well, okay, we’ll be doing some kind of analysis…….

Rose Bowl see my blog about the pretty Rose Bowl for additional information.

  • Features the Big 10 and the Pac 10.
  • Played in Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California.
  • 2009 is the 95th anniversary of the Rose Bowl (in it’s current stadium. It has been around since 1902 in other forms)
  • Brought to us by citi.
  • January 1: #8 Ohio State (10-2)  vs. #7 Oregon (10-2) 4:30 p.m.

Orange

  • Features the champion of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
  • 2009 is the 75th anniversary of the Orange Bowl.
  • Played in Dolphin Stadium in Miami, Florida
  • Brought to us by FedEx
  • January 5: #10  Iowa (10-2) vs. Georgia  Tech (11-2) 8 p.m.

Sugar

  • Features the champion of Southeastern Conference
  • 2009 is the 75th anniversary of the Sugar Bowl
  • Played in the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Brought to us by Allstate
  • Because Florida, champ of the SEC, was chosen for the Championship game this year the Sugar Bowl features 2 randoms instead of 1:
  • January 1: #5 Florida (12-1) vs. #3 Cincinnati (12-0) 8:30 p.m. Florida, who was ranked No.1 until their devastating loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship got bumped to No. 5 in the ranks, but is still considered by many to be the elite team and the one to really beat.

Fiesta:

  • Features the champion of the Big 12 Conference
  • Played at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona
  • 2009 is the 38th anniversary of the Fiesta Bowl
  • Brought to us by Tostitos
  • January 4: #4 TCU (12-0) vs. #6  Boise State (13-0) 8:00 p.m. Both teams were undefeated this season and should be a good game, yet highly anti-climatic. Would be much more noteworthy if they were playing a big name instead of each other.

BCS National Championship:

bcs 2010 national championship

  • Features the #1 and #2 Ranked teams in the BCS standings
  • Is held every year at one of the BCS Bowl sites
  • This year it is held in the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California
  • January 8: #1 Alabama (13-0) vs. #2 Texas (13-0) 8:00 p.m.  Both teams have had more bowl appearances than any other team. Alabama 57 bowls, Texas 49. The game pitts Heisman Trophy nominees Mark Ingram (Crimson Tide) and Colt McCoy (Longhorns) against each other. Alabama clinched the No. 1 spot after their beatdown of the Florida Gators in the SEC Championship.
