A few notes on this:

  • Four 6-6 teams will be home for the holidays.  Right now I have Wyoming, Western Michigan, Buffalo and Louisiana Tech out.
  • CFP Rankings are set but bowls aren’t set yet which I find odd.  Then again, a lot of what goes on today is odd.
  • Looks like WKU and Georgia State at the Cure Bowl.
  • Just realized it’s OWL-ON-OWL VIOLENCE at the Boca Bowl this year.  Surprised I didn’t catch that.
  • So with Notre Dame not in the New Year’s Six (and not even that close), they will go to the Citrus to play LSU.  That will feel like a MASSIVE bowl game (outside the big six).  It also kicks off New Year’s Day which will be a big day once again in college football (but bigger than it has felt in the past couple years).
  • Feels like the mid-2000’s all over again with the New Orleans Bowl as former conference running mates meet: North Texas and Troy.
