  • Florida and Iowa will head to the Outback Bowl.  For some reason this doesn’t feel too exciting.
  • Kentucky is heading to the TaxSlayer Bowl to face Georgia Tech.  That’s a good game for Mark Stoops and his Wildcats.  I don’t know why I kept Georgia there once Georgia Tech was confirmed.  Then again, the bids are coming in faster than I can even process them.
  • Arkansas goes to Charlotte to play Virginia Tech in the Belk Bowl.  Which Hogs team will show up this time?
  • Northwestern playing Pitt in the Pinstripe Bowl in another game that just doesn’t look that appealing.
  • Kansas State to the Texas Bowl, which was confirmed pretty much as soon as they beat TCU.
  • LSU-Louisville is going to be an intriguing matchup in the Citrus.
  • Boise State and Baylor will play each other in the Cactus Bowl.  Interesting…
  • Wake Forest to play Temple in the Military Bowl.  If you had said this would happen three years ago, most would have thought you had no idea about college football whatsoever.
  • NC State will go to Shreveport for the Independence Bowl.  This feels like a punishment rather than a reward.
  • Speaking of punishments, Air Force will play South Alabama in the Arizona Bowl.  Good luck finding the channel to watch this.  This can’t be good for recruiting.
  • Boston College to the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit.  Going from Boston to Detroit.  Hmmm.  At least it’s indoors.
  • 11 bowl bids left to hand out.
